Introduction:

 

Welcome to the Carnival! Monkey See Monkey Do is a fun, family fairground game that will leave you with smiles on your face! This is fairly straightforward game. You will need to play each of the 5 fairground alleys and the minigames in each one in order to obtain the Achievements. Most games require a small level of skill and a high level of luck! Slight physical excursion may be required on some games but for no more than a minute at a time.

 

There is no set path through this game as such. No pathway will net you any achievements any quicker than any other way, all I can say is pick a game and have some fun!

Hit a Home Run with the MPH fastball

 

In the Tea cup court alley, you will find the mini game called Hitting Streak. This game requires you to hit a series 10 baseballs that are pitched to you by the Monkey that vary in speed and in technique.

 

If you time your swing correctly you will hit the ball. Depending on your technique and timing whether you hit a single, double, triple or home run.

 

To get this achievement, you have to perfectly hit a home run on the final ball which is delivered at MPH. The machine that fires the balls has countdown lights on it. A good technique to hit the MPH is to swing just after the final light illuminates. The MPH ball comes very quick is rather hard to hit. Ultimately, it is more luck than judgment!

In each shop there are an assortment of items to buy. These items are all part of a set which contains 3 pieces to it; a hat, a costume and a pet. Some items however have to be won through attaining certain targets in a mini game - 16+ rounds in Boxing for instance.

 

Once you obtain all three items for one outfit, the achievement will pop.

 

The easiest full outfit to compile is in the shop called Barkers Best. Here you can purchase the Monkey (Monkey Barker) the costumer (Barkers Best) and the hat (Barkers Bowler). In total, these will cost you 900 tickets but will also earn you the Monkey Barker, Stylin' and Tip o' the cap achievements.

Win & Purchase all prizes

 

After playing each game, providing you post a score you will earn a number of tickets. The amount of tickets will vary on the game itself and how you have scored in that game whether it be a certain number of points, or a position in a race for instance. You can spend these points in the shop to buy prizes such as outfits for your avatar.

 

As well as winning tickets for reaching a certain target in each game, some games reward you with a prize. These can be relatively hard to get and require a certain amount of excursion however are not impossible! The criteria for ticket amounts and winning a prize is shown before each relative event so you have your target to aim for.

 

The shop can be accessed either from the main menu screen or following each game you are given the option to pick a new game, replay the previous game or visit the shop.

 

In total you will need to accrue 6825 tickets to purchase all the buyable prizes. The rest are won in mini-games.

Go at least 17 rounds on Knockout Punch

 

'Knockout Punch' is a min-game found in the Whirligig way alley. It requires you to throw a series of punches and duck punches the robot according to a pattern displayed on the robots mid rift.

You score points for successfully completing the required moveset and the mini game lasts 60 seconds.

 

Be aware of your hands as you squat down to duck. The Sensor picks up hand movements as punches when you are moving and counts these as an incorrect move. After several attempts, my highest score was 18 rounds and that was pushing it! This seems to be pretty much the most physical achievement in the game in my opinion but it is not impossible.

 

If you get a 'duck' instruction, you can punch on the way up and this will count as an action. This can save you valuable seconds!

Make a basket within the last second of Court King

 

In the Teacup Court alley, there is a mini game called Court King. This game required you to shoot

Basketballs into a hoop for 60 seconds. The achievement pretty much speaks for itself. To get it you have to sink a basket in the last remaining second of the 60.

 

I'd advise you to play the game as normal until there are about 5 or 6 seconds left on the clock. You will then have time to watch the counter countdown to 1 and then release your shot. During the first 50 or so seconds try and find a throwing position whereby you are getting most of your throws in the basket. It does seem to be a little tempramental where it doesnt seem you move inbetween shots yet the ball seems to fly off in a different direction.

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1792/5-0TUpE=.jpgGranny Skills 75 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Make a basket with each object given in Granny Shot

 

In the Teacup Court alley, there is a mini game called Granny Shot. This game required you to shoot objects into a basket, objects that increase in size and weight. There are 6 items in total and you get 3 attempts with each item. Simply score one basket (at least) with each item and the achievement will pop.

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1792/5-1sTnY=.jpgCrash Dummy 25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Knock out at least 600 gold bricks in Crash-Test Dummy

 

In the Launchpad Lane alley, there is a mini game called Crash Dummy. This game requires you to mimic an on screen silhouette shown in gold bricks against an orange brick wall. Once you have mimicked and held the position, your silhouette will crash towards the wall knocking down bricks.

 

In the 6 routines per game, you must knock down a total of 600 of the gold bricks, bearing in mind that knocking down a black brick will result in a deduction from your score. The running total is shown on the side of the screen so you will be able to see how you are doing.

 

A tip from Vivi:

For the Crash Test Dummy game me and my friend just grabbed a blanket and held it up. The sensor recognized the blanket as part of our body. Made this a very easy achievement to get the 600. Also easy to rack up tickets jut replaying over and over.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1792/5-05BVI=.jpgMonkey Barker 100 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Purchase the Monkey Barker prize

 

From the shop menu screen, hover over the Barker's best shop. Once inside, hover over the Monkey to buy it. This will cost you 500 tickets that you will have to acquire from playing the mini-games. You can also choose to display this with your avatar.

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1792/5-8YDOc=.jpgStylin 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Purchase the Barker's Best prize

 

From the shop menu screen, hover over the Barker's best shop. Once inside, hover over the Barker outfit to buy it. This will cost you 200 tickets that you will have to acquire from playing the mini-games. You can also choose to wear this on your avatar.

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1792/5-749HQ=.jpgTip O' the Cap 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Purchase the Barker Bowler prize

 

From the shop menu screen, hover over the Barker's best shop. Once inside, hover over the Barker Bowler hat to buy it. This will cost you 200 tickets that you will have to acquire from playing the mini-games. You can also choose to wear this on your avatar.

Collect at least 100 Red Stars from Gold Rush Mountain

 

In the Carousel Junction alley you will find a game called Gold Rush Mountain. The object of this mini game is to stretch out your arms to hit gold coins as you travel up and down the coaster. Hitting the red stars will deduct from your overall coin count however for the purposes of this achievement you have to catch 100 red stars.

 

The achievement will pop when you hit the 100th star not at the end of the run so you might still be able to get some coinage to your total!

Don't miss once with all pitches in Golden Arm

 

In the Tea cup court alley, you will find the Golden Arm mini game. This game requires you to pitch a baseball a series of stacked milk bottles, in which there will be some that are gold. The idea in each of the rounds is to topple the stack of bottles making sure that the gold one(s) fall on each round. If the gold one(s) fall, you progress to the next stack. 6 balls, 6 stacks, clear them all and the achievement is yours.

 

Before you throw, you will see the path at which the cross hair will take. Memorize this path and pick the point at which you think your throw will do the most damage to the pile. Just before the cross-hair moves to the bit you want to aim at, hurl your arm towards the screen and hopefully you'll take out the full stack.

Fly to Mars on launch 1

 

In the Launchpad lane alley, you will find the game called Rocket to mars. This game requires you to navigate a rocket ship up an assault course moving your body from left to right to steer it. Quite a simple concept but steering the ship can be a little tricky, especially if you exaggerate your leans a little too much and the ship begins to drift too far to the sides.

 

Hitting the sides, the moon or stars will cause your ship to explode and although you get three attempts at the game, the achievement requires you to complete the run on the first attempt.

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1792/5-uWrWY=.jpgStack a Lack'n 25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Stack 20 funnel cakes

 

In the Coaster corner alley, you will find the mini game called Funnel cake falls. This game requires you to catch cakes on a tray which are dropped from the top of the screen by the fairground monkey. The difficulty in this game comes as cakes that are flung can knock off cakes that have already been caught and stacks of cakes that are stacked wonky are prone to tumbling over.

 

The achievement requires you to have 20 cakes on your tray at one single point. If you collect 19 and the next one knocks your pile over, you will have to start again. The try is big enough to make 2 stacks but try to keep them as level and as uniform as possible.

 

As the time ticks down, the frequency the monkey throws the pies increases. Resist the urge to rush from side to side to try and catch wayward pies and the momentum can also make the pies tumble off the tray.

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1792/5-31t7k=.jpgThe Ringer 25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Get two rings on the same peg in Ring Fling

 

In the Carousel Junction alley you will find the Ring Fling mini game. This requires you to toss rings onto pegs that are arranged in a square grid. You get 5 rings to toss and after each toss, the pegs on the outside of the square disappear , making the overall amount of pegs decrease.

 

For the purposes of making sure your pegs don't disappear before you have a chance to get more than one ring on a peg, try to aim for for the centre 4 pegs. The distance you throw depends on how harsh your throwing action is. After a few attempts you should begin to get the measure of how hard to throw.

 

Try to keep your action as close to exactly the same as possible and eventually through luck rather than skill you should get it eventually. I managed to get 3 on the trot on the same peg after about 7 or 8 throws and then didn't get another for about a dozen more after!

 

The achievement pops during the mini-game once you land your second ring.

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1792/5--Uvgw=.jpgTotal Domination 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Get the rank of Dominator in Strength Test

 

In the Whirligig way alley you will find the Strength Test mini game. This requires you to hoist your arms above your head and bring them down when a marker hits a certain point on the screen. Doing so will make your avatar hit a hammer onto a pad sending a weight up to hit a bell. The closer to the marker you perform the downwards hammer action, the harder your avatar will hit the pad and the higher the weight will go. You must hit the marker dead on to reach the bell at the top.

 

In total there are three stages to the strength test. The speed at which the marker moves increases on each stage and not hitting the target exactly will cause you to not hit the bell and therefore not be able to progress to the next stage.

 

You only get one chance to hit the marker and the speed the marker moves increases each time. Try to swing just before the marker reaches the centre of the meter and you should get it. Over exaggerate your movements to make sure its picked up.

 

For the Dominator achievement, you have to have the moveable object hit the actual marker at the word Dominator not the bell (Cheers RomeFalls 86) which makes it that extra bit more difficult and infuriating!

Finish Monkey See, Monkey Do with no bad poses

 

In the Whirligig way alley, you will find the mini game called Monkey See Monkey Do. This game requires you mimic a monkey's on screen poses. After copying each pose you will be given a rating depending on how accurate and similar to the monkey's pose yours is.

 

The first few times the monkey poses, he will only do one pose. After this he may do two poses between dancing and then finally three poses.

 

Try to shift between poses as quickly as possible ensuring that your arms are bent the correct way and keep an eye on whether or not the monkey has one of his legs lifted up or not. I managed this on the first attempt - its not that difficult. Your poses have to be pretty bad to get a 'bad pose' rating.

Clear out the wheel in Wheel of Chance

 

In the Coaster Corner alley you will find the wheel of chance. This mini game is purely luck based and allows you to win tickets to spend in the shop. The down side is that it costs you 25 tickets to play the game and there are instant fail pitfalls on the wheel.

 

Initially on the wheel there is one instant fail skull, 7x1's, 4x5's, 3x10's, 2x20's and 1x100. Landing on one of these will reward you with that numbers total of tickets so for example landing on a 1 will net you 7 tickets, a 5 will net you 20 and so forth.

 

The downside however is that whichever number you land on will be subsequently be transformed into the instant-kill skull icon thus increasing your chance of loosing if you choose to spin again.

This achievement is pretty much luck based however there is an element of odd-calculating to it to work out whether or not it's worth spinning again or cashing in your total and starting again.

 

If you get the 100 on your first spin then there will only be 2 skulls on the wheel and still 16 numbers and therefore only a 2/18 chance of crapping out. If you then get the two 20's you'll have 4 skulls and 14 numbers therefor a 4/18 chance of crapping out. As you see with 3 sets left to clear you still have pretty high odds.

 

If you clear the ones first, you have 8 skulls and only 10 numbers left so an 8/18 chance of crapping out and still 4 sets left to clear.

 

Ultimately it is a game of luck however you can still increase your chances slightly..

I think this is the one that will cause gamers the most stress on this game and leave a few on 800 for a long time!

 

Summary

 

So there we go, hopefully the guide has given you some information on the achievements you may or not be struggling with. The game itself is pretty fun and not too hard to pick up.

 

I'll be getting the edits finished as soon as I get back on the 360.

 

If theres anything that you think may be incorrect, needs adding or generally commenting on please feel free to say so. This is the first guide I've posted on here and hopefully I can contribute something to a site I've received so much from. Happy gaming!

Clear out the wheel in Wheel of Chance

 

I agree with what you've said. But you could also get 500 tickets or so and then backup your save file. This will make the achievement easier.

 

EDIT: You can't copy your save, but surely there is another way?

 

Good work on the guide.

Purchase the Monkey Barker prize

 

Buy the item for 500 tickets and Dashboard it when the achievement unlocks. You'll eventually need this item anyway, but it's a quick way to get the achievement and keep your tickets.

Risk taker... Here are some hints not to have to rely on luck and spend valuable money.. ;)

 

First of all, if you spinned a skull, quickly have your left arm in the usual Kinect cancel position (left arm and left leg 45 degrees) and in the in-game menu that pops up you can simply restart the mini game without loosing the 25 credits. The XBOX button works as well, but this is a Kinect game, so you are not supposed to play with your controller in your hands. :)

 

The wheel has numbers in the following order 100-1-5-1-1-10-5-1-20-(skull)-10-1-5-1-10-1-20-5.

 

Part of it is luck, but not everything, if you raise your hands and lower them with the slowest possible speed that the game still accepts, the wheel will stop 6 numbers from your current position (e.g. your first spin will always end up at the second 5). This strategy can be applied at any point, so it is always worth to watch where you ended up with your spin and what the 6th number ahead is.

 

Rest is luck, but if you practice the movement that gets you about a whole spin, you can get the difficult numbers (100, 20) upfront. By always knowing where you currently are on the wheel and where the good numbers are you can plan the speed you do your next spin with and mop up afterwards. Using the slowest spin to move 6 ahead was key for me after I have done 2 or 3 lucky spins.

I am just about to finish it, I do not think that it will take more than 8-10 hrs altogether. There are some mini games that will require luck and patience, but overall I would not call the game tedious. And it is actually pretty much fun. You can even engage girlfriend to work on some achievements.. :)

 

<EDIT> It was more like 12 in the end. In order to buy everything in the shop you need to do about 2 hrs of money grinding with the wheel of fortune (the method I previously described for risk taker applies here as well. If you are loosing, go to the pause menu and restart)

For the Crash Test Dummy game me and my friend just grabbed a blanket and held it up. The sensor recognized the blanket as part of our body. Made this a very easy achievement to get the 600. Also easy to rack up tickets jut replaying over and over.

i intially brought this game to play with my daughter and such ( maybe when im drunk when the kids go to bed. lol.)

 

for a kids game im find this remarkibly hard, the kinect just doesnt seem to follow my movement properly, is anyone else having the same issue

 

honestly I thought this game was one of the better games with Kinect funtionality. Barely had any issues with the sensor picking up my movements.

Make a basket with each object given in Granny Shot

 

In the Teacup Court alley, there is a mini game called Granny Shot. This game required you to shoot objects into a basket, objects that increase in size and weight. There are 6 items in total and you get 3 attempts with each item. Simply score one basket (at least) with each item and the achievement will pop.

 

I think there's 10 items you need to get - as I've got all the others apart from the Earth, and no cheev.

just completed the game today (damn monkey see dlc) and i reckon the game isn't an "easy 1000" as many say, very time consuming and some of the events are extremely tough to get high scores on-ring toss, alley ball etc. plus the fact you need to accrue roughly 6500 tickets and wait hours for the big 200g lucky wheel one and i reckon:-

time 25-35 hours

difficulty 5-6/10

 

might be a bit long winded but in short spells probably my fave kinect game so far-certainly way better than the horrendous wii version
