Introduction:
Welcome to Celeste, an extremely fun and challenging addition to the platformer genre. Celeste is about a girl, Madeline, that wishes to climb a mountain, but she is faced with peril along the way. Madeline must overcome many obstacles; hotel owners, mirror ghosts, anxiety, and the mountain itself. Join Madeline in an amazing journey of self discovery and selfies.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
Celeste is a challenging game meant to be played with its intended settings, but, for achievement hunters, all chapters can be completed with Assist Mode on. Assist Mode can be turned on before starting your game and turned off the same way. Once Assist Mode is on, begin a chapter and press start to change your settings. Assist settings will grant you invincibility among other things such as a decreased game speed, infinite dashes and infinite stamina.

Play as you may. For a difficult yet glorified experience, play Celeste in its nature. For a quick and easy completion, enable Assist Mode. No one will know.

Mop-Up:
Celeste has eight chapters. Each chapter has a B-Side that you can play once collecting a B-Side tape. B-Sides are more challenging and will require much patience if you are playing without Assist Mode. Once all B-sides are complete, you will unlock C-Sides. May the game gods be with you.

Conclusion:
However way you decide to play Celeste, good luck and have fun!

Celeste Achievement Guide

Show completed achievements
Show secret achievements

There are 30 achievements with a total of 1000 points

  • Celeste

     

    100

    Climb Celeste Mountain

    This achievement will unlock after completing chapter 7, 'The Summit'.

  • 1UP!

     

    20

    Get a 1UP

    A 1UP is probably something you'll never achieve accidentally. While collecting strawberries, you will notice that the strawberry follows you around until you come to rest on a solid surface, and then it is consumed and collected. Well, a 1UP requires you to have six strawberries following you and collecting them all simultaneously. In order to do this, you must interact with six strawberries without touching the ground for too long.

    It is easiest to get this in Chapter 1. Enabling Assist Mode and bringing the game speed down to 50% along with infinite dash also makes this rather simple. But if you want to go for it the hard way, here's a video of a guy being good.

 

Secret achievements

  • Complete Chapter 1

    This achievement will unlock after completing chapter 1, 'Forsaken City'.

  • Complete Chapter 2

    This achievement will unlock after completing chapter 2, 'Old Site'.

  • Complete Chapter 3

    This achievement will unlock after completing chapter 3, 'Celestial Resort'.

  • Complete Chapter 4

    This achievement will unlock after completing chapter 4, 'Golden Ridge'.

  • Complete Chapter 5

    This achievement will unlock after completing chapter 5, 'Mirror Temple'.

  • Complete Chapter 6

    This achievement will unlock after completing chapter 6, 'Reflection'.

  • Collect 30 Strawberries

    Refer to "Impress Your Friends".

  • Collect 80 Strawberries

    Refer to "Impress Your Friends".

  • Collect 175 Strawberries

    Strawberries are collectable items in Celeste. There are a total of 175 strawberries scattered throughout eight chapters (not including B-Sides and C-Sides). Strawberries are placed in strategic and/or hidden locations. Collect them all to unlock this achievement.

    Each chapter page will tell you how many strawberries you have collected, and how many total strawberries reside in the selected chapter. Also, while in a chapter, you can press start to see your collected strawberries chronologically and by subchapter. These are revealed as red circles along the bottom of the menu.

    Refer to the videos linked below for their locations:

  • Collect a Cassette

    There are a total of eight Cassettes, with each chapter containing one. Cassettes are placed and hidden in strategic locations. Once the player has found the chamber in which the Cassette is held, the player must use disappearing and reappearing platforms (they shift in time with the beat) to reach the cassette. If you are playing without Assist Mode, I hope you have a keen ear and good timing!

    Each cassette will unlock the B-Side for the related chapter. Once the cassette is collected, B-Sides become available to play from the chapter menu. If you have gotten through Celeste without the use of Assist Mode, the B-Side chapters will certainly break your courage.

    Cassettes can be found as follows:

    • Chapter 1: Forsaken City – 5:19
    • Chapter 2: Old Site – 1:28
    • Chapter 3: Celestial Resort – 7:51
    • Chapter 4: Golden Ridge – 1:50
    • Chapter 5: Mirror Temple – 7:41
    • Chapter 6: Reflection – 0:00
    • Chapter 7: The Summit – 6:48
    • Chapter 8: Core – 1:40
  • Complete Celeste for PICO-8

    The only reason this game is not a 1/10 difficulty is because Celeste for PICO-8 cannot be completed with Assist Mode on.

    Celeste for PICO-8 is a collectable item that is found in chapter 3: 'Celestial Resort'. Once collected, it becomes playable at the main menu.

    Refer to this video guide for the location of Celeste for PICO-8. It is found at 5:40.

    A game within a game, Celeste for PICO-8 is a virtual simulator of Celeste. There are a total of 30 chambers that gradually become more difficult. If you exit you will have to begin again. I recommend becoming familiar with the mechanics of Celeste (without Assist Mode on) before attempting to complete Celeste for PICO-8.
