Introduction:

This is a mini-game based title (also known as a party game). There is a light story mode and other various game modes you will be playing once to get associated achievements. Otherwise, you will be playing many mini-games by themselves. It should be known right off that you will need 4 controllers for at least one of the achievements. If you do not have 4 controllers, then you cannot complete this game. If you don't care about completion and wish to try to get most of the achievements legit, this may be more of a 4-5 out of 10 for difficulty and take much longer. There are no collectibles in this game, but you do have to beat all 43 mini games on hard AI. The trick to that is to start with 4 players, but hit to exit out before the mini game ends.

Step 1: Story Mode

Play through the story mode on easy. If you lose any of the mini games, exit out quickly. This is a very short step and you should be able to do it fairly fast while at the same time getting used to the various mini games.

Step 2: Party Mode

Play on Party Mode and beat each one while on the Hard setting. You will have a gold medal icon on the mini-game if you have won it on hard. This is how you will keep track. The easiest way to win on hard is to have 4 controllers connected and use the trick mentioned in the introduction.

Step 3: Garland Gala Mode, Quiz Mode, and Carnaval Mode

You will now need to win on each one of these modes. Check the various achievement descriptions about them to learn the best course of action. Specifically you will want to follow the Quiz Answers located HERE. This will ensure you get all of the answers right the first time, and not have to keep replaying this mode to get different questions.

Step 4: Grinding Misc Achievements

Now you will want to grind the remaining power-up achievements. One of the better levels to do this on is Dodgeball and best done with 4 controllers. You can get all of them here.

Conclusion:

This game is really easy if you have 4 controllers. If you only have one, you may have some trouble with certain acheivements, as well as the game will take a bit longer and you will not be able to get 1 acheivement, therefore not be able to have the game as complete. If you have 4 controllers, then you will have a very easy time. The only annoying part is grinding out some of the last achievements.

  • Completed Story Mode, coming 1st in each minigame.

    (2)  

    Go to options and make sure you are on "Easy". Start story mode and play through winning each mini game. If you lose, quit out. Now continue and try gain in that area. Each story mode has different sections, but the overall length of story is very short. It will get you used to the mini games. Do not expect to play on every mini game in each area. You will be playing every mini game on hard afterwards. This is a very short part of the game that you will be focusing on and only have to play it once.

  • Came 1st in a VS mode game.

     

    Play a VS game against AI or other controllers. Can be won on any difficulty.

  • Came 1st in all Carnaval minigames.

    (1)  

    See "Party Perfection" achievement description.

  • Stunned 50 players with the bodyguard power-up.

      

    This power-up is a red and yellow patterened shield (not the blue one). It brings birds down that circle around you. You can only knock out 1 opponent each time you grab it, meaning you will need to pick it up at least 50 times. If an enemy hits you with anything it will cause the birds to fly away.

    Grinding: The best mini game to play is Dodgeball. It drops all the pickups you need for the pickup related achievements. There is no timer on this game. If you have 3 controllers, you can run around getting the pickups and using them over and over while also gaining distance ran.

  • Completed all games to gold standard in Party Mode.

    (4)  

    Change the difficulty to Hard in the options. Now you must complete every mini-game in party mode. There are 43 games in total. If you have won a mini-game on hard, it will show a gold start on the top corner. This will help you easily keep track of what you've done. You can play all many or just some. To make this extremely easy, play with all 4 controllers. Right when the game ends, press on any of the other controllers. This will cause an AI to take over (but has already lost). This will count. When the next mini game starts, hit again to log your controller back on. If attempting against all AI, you may have a difficult time winning some of the games.

  • Collected 1000 items.

      

    You will get this while playing through story mode. There are tons of fruits you will be collecting in various mini-games.

  • Stunned 100 players whilst under the effect of chilli.

      

    The Chilli Pepper is the red pepper pickup. When picked up, you run faster and any other player touched by you will get put into a dizzy status. You should be able to at least get 3 or more stuns each time. You can keep knocking out the same person.

    Grinding: The best mini game to play is Dodgeball. It drops all the pickups you need for the pickup related achievements. There is no timer on this game. If you have 3 controllers, you can run around getting the pickups and using them over and over while also gaining distance ran.

  • Raised the standard game multiplier to x3.

      

    You should get this through natural progression of the game. Keep going for the 2X multiplyers and you will eventually get a 3X. This will be obtained very early on.

  • Came 1st in a total of 10 minigames.

      

    See "Untouchable" achievement description.

  • Came 1st in a total of 100 minigames.

      

    See "Untouchable" achievement description.

  • Came 1st in a total of 200 minigames.

      

    There is a total of 43 mini-games that you must win on Hard difficulty. After story and all other game mdoes (including those 43), you will only still have the achievement for winning 100. This is quite a grind now, as you replay the games over and over. You can play any mini- games you want, but Dodgeball is suggested you play the most, as you can knock out the power-up based achievements. If you have all those achievements, play it as you go for your 26 miles.

  • Played as all playable characters.

      

    There are a total of 6 playable characters. This can be done in any mode. If you lose in a mini-game and quit out in story, you can change your character when you continue again. You may also just change your characters whenever you play new modes.

  • Won a game in any mode against 3 human players.

     

    You must have 4 controllers to get this achievement. This is suggested for the game anyways, so hopefully this won't be a problem. Borrow from friends/relatives if you must. Just have all 4 press when given the chance. These controllers do not have to be signed into a profile, and will not get achievements.

  • Scored over 700 points in a Carnaval Wheel game.

     

    This is a game mode, and not a mini-game. Pick it from the main menu. You play 12 mini-games but before each, you will spin a wheel. The first wheel picks the mini-game, and the second wheel spin will be how many points you get if you win. When the game asks to use a wild card, it will double the points. You can save them for if you hit 50+ points. It's best to play on easy or against 3 other controllers. Get over 700 by the end of all 12 games and you will get the achievement.

  • Ran 26 miles.

    (2)  

    This will be the last achievement you get in the game. There is no in-game tracker of this stat. If you pick up the shoes and the chilli power-ups then you will run faster which will gain you more distance. If you have 4 controllers this can be done very easily on the mini-game called Dodgeball. There is no timer and you can run around collecting the power-ups for as long as you want. It's suggested you work on this only after you have gotten every other achievement.

    Note: You only get this distance counted while on foot playing as your character (no flying, aiming, etc). Avoid replaying mini-games where you do not physically control your character and are walking.

  • Ran 50m whilst in a latin trance.

      

    This powerup is a music note. Onced picked up, the opponents will go into a trance while the music plays. You need to be one of the players effected and walk around. You will likely get this through normal play of the game, but if not you can use your alternate controller(s) to pick up the note so that you can walk around.

  • Hit 100 players with shock and awe.

      

    This is the lightning pickup. Each time you pick it up, it will automatically shock your opponents. You will need to pick this up around 34 times. If the opponents are stunned already, this will not re-stun them and won't count.

    Grinding: The best mini game to play is Dodgeball. It drops all the pickups you need for the pickup related achievements. There is no timer on this game. If you have 3 controllers, you can run around getting the pickups and using them over and over while also gaining distance ran.

  • Won a Quiz Mode game without getting a quiz question wrong.


    If you go into party mode, you will see Quiz based games (VS and Team). Play either one, and pick one mini-game. After the mini-game, you will be asked 2 questions.

    You can find all the quiz answers HERE.

  • Won a Carnaval Dance Standard mode game.

     

    This game mode has you play mini-games. As you score points based on the place you get, you get monkeys in a line behind you. Once you hit 20, you win. There are certain occasions that will increase your points. Other than that, it's very standard gameplay.

  • Won a Carnaval Dance Crazy mode game.

     

    This mode is the same as Carnaval Dance except there are random chances you will lose points as well as gain. This will take longer to win, even against 3 other controllers because the negative will likely slow you down.

  • Won a Carnaval Wheel game.

     

    See "Star Spinner" achievement description.

  • Came 1st in a Team Party game.

      

    You may be doing Team Party mode to make it easier to win games (for Hard difficulty or for grinding). This is just a team based VS mode. You only need to win one game.

  • Came 1st in a Team Party Quiz game.

     

    This is a game mode that gives you 2 quiz questions at the end of every mini-game you play. You get bonus points for answering correctly. Just choose Team Quiz and win a game.

    You can find all the quiz answers HERE.

  • Came 1st in a VS Quiz game.

     

    This is a game mode in which after you play a mini-game, you have to answer 2 questions. Answer the questions correctly as well as win the mini-game.

    You can find all the quiz answers HERE.

  • Collected all special pickups in the game.

      

    You will get this naturally. Certain mini-games will have certain pickups. After you get a pickup, it takes in most cases, 10 or so seconds for another to appear.

  • Answered all movie questions in the game correctly.

    (2)  

    See "Brazillian Brains" achievement description.

  • Answered all Brazil trivia questions in the game correctly.

     

    You must play either VS Quiz or Team Quiz modes to get questions. After each mini-game you play, you will have to answer 2 questions. You must press to say you are ready, then you must answer within the time given by moving in the direction of the answer. There are a lot more Brazillian based questions than there are movie, so you should get the movie achievement first. Try your best to get every answer right the first time. The game does good about giving you different questions frequently. There will be times you answer many of the same questions until you get a new one. Just follow the guide below to make sure you get them all right.

  • Reached Luiz's target score in Garland Gala.

     


    See "Garland Gala Guru" achievement description.

  • Reached Mauro's target score in Garland Gala.

     


    See "Garland Gala Guru" achievement description.

  • Reached Nigel's target score in Garland Gala.

    There is a game mode called Garland Gala. You play mini games, then at the end you play a special mini-game only from this mode. It's much like a circus game. There are moving cut-outs of various characters that you throw the rings around. The special characters (anything not the regular monkeys) offer more points. Grab a 2X multiplyer whenever you can to gain points faster. You only have a certain amount of time as well as rings. This game is actually very easy and you should have no trouble hitting your target scores. The scores are 25 for the dog's challenge, 50 for the monkey's, and 75 for the bird's.
