Welcome to the Splosion Man guide. By using this road map and achievement guide together you should gain the maximum gamerscore for the smallest ammount of time.

Step #1:

First Playthrough - First of all you're going to have to do an easy playthrough to unlock the hardcore difficulty later. During this playthrough you should gain 85G by killing ten scientists, completing the game, collecting all the cakes, creating 5000 fillets and finding the previous game developers star 'The MAW'.
There is a cake in almost every level so you're going to need to use this thread. Over the course of the game you'll kill enough scientists to gain the Get Them Out of Our Schools achievement and the Omaha Steaks®, Delicious! Most people get the first achievement from the first level and others get the second half way through the game. Just keep playing the game until you've 3-17 and then follow the guide to get 'The MAW'.

Step #2:

Hardcore difficulty - To get this achievement you need to finish up the the hardcore campaign. The different in the two campaigns is that there is no checkpoints and you're now on a one hit one kill basis.


* Take your time, be sure not to rush things or you will just die.
* Use the to look further than you normally can.

Step #3:

Multiplayer - You're going to be unlocking two achievement here, A Little Help from Your Friends and Sugar High. Your going to be needing to collect another 47 cakes so you should head back to this thread. You will need only one partner for this achievement so be sure to get a friend to help you offline or online.

Step #4:

Mopping up - You still need to get the following achievements Master of Controls, Get Over Yourselves, Only Gandhi Would Be Proud and Lay Off the Caffeine. Refer back to the guide to see how to unlock these achievements. There all relatively simple.

[x360a would like to thank Purge for this road map]

Get Them Out of Our Schools10
Eliminate 10 Scientists and stop them from spreading their filthy lies.   (2) 

This achievement should come very quickly to you, I unlocked this achievement in 5 minutes during the first level. Simply run up to a scientist and press , , or . This will make you 'SPLODE' and you will turn a scientist into a steak. Do this nine more times to unlock this achievement.

Master of Controls10
Master the mastery of controlling your controls.   (11) 

First of all go straight to the main menu and goto the Help & Options menu directly under the Multiplayer menu. You then must goto controls and go to any of the controls that say 'SPLODE'. Push the to the right or left to try and change 'SPLODE'. The 'SPLODE' will not change and the achievement will unlock.

You're the Best Around!25
Complete the Single Player game.   (4) 

The story takes quite a while as it has 50 levels. If you use the 'Way of the Coward' maneuver then you will NOT get the achievement. If you then go back to time trials after using it then you can finish the level you skipped and in turn unlock the achievement.

A Little Help from Your Friends25
Complete the Multiplayer game.   (26) 

The multiplayer game is quite different from the single player game. There are a number of ways you can do the multiplayer game; you can either find somebody in the Achievement Trading Thread or you can play local and use a second controller. Both methods are great with 2-4 players but if you are playing local be sure to get somebody else to play with you rather than you holding both controllers. Alot of the puzzles are to simultaneously perform jumps etc. so your only doing yourself a favour getting another player to help you.

Omaha Steaks®, Delicious!15
Create 5,000 filets.   (3) 

This achievement should come with time. You simply need to 'SPLODE' beside scientists by pressing , , or . On 1-13 there is a quick shortcut. Near the start of the level there is the option to pick up one of the fat donut scientists, just grab him, stand under the turrent and watch the steak come rolling in.

Not a Portal Reference25
Collect all 47 cakes in Single Player mode.   (2) 

For the locations of the single player cakes please refer to this thread.

Sugar High25
Collect all 47 cakes in Multiplayer mode.   (11) 

For the locations of the multiplayer cakes please refer to this thread.

Get Over Yourselves10
Select "Credits" from the "Help & Options" menu and watch the whole thing.   (9) 

Just like the Master of Controls achievement. First of all go straight to the main menu and goto the Help & Options menu directly under the Multiplayer menu. You then will need to watch the entire credits for this one so make sure you have enough time on your hands to watch the entire thing. It roughly lasts 3-5 minutes.

Only Gandhi Would Be Proud10
How long can you handle being a pacifist?   (6) 

For this achievement you have to go through an entire level without harming a single scientist. The level would be 1-1 as it's a really small level and there's not many scientists to harm.

#1 + #2 - Run towards the three scientists until two of them join together and stop while the third one runs to the end of the path. Move backwards a fair distance and then triple-jump over the two scientists.

#3 + #4 - Walk over the floating symbol to turn it green, this removes the lock and it turn drops the third scientist to the floor below. Immediately after you do that if you keep running forward, you can run over the 4th scientist without harming him.

#5 - The fifth scientist will run to the end of the pathway and then its just a simple matter of bouncing against the two walls without harming the scientist. I suggest starting directly below where the roof ends.

#6 - The sixth scientist will be walking towards the wall and at the momment you have enough space to jump over him, you should do so.

#7 - The seventh scientist froze in the middle of this path for me but can easily be jumped over with careful timing. I suggest you jump at the first red seat for safety.

#8 - The eighth scientist will be a simple jump of the two walls job. Do exactly as I have said in five and you should be fine. Do the same if the seventh scientist has decided to run further and huddled with the eighth scientist.

#9 - The ninth scientist is similar to eight and five as you have to bounce off the wall and there is a scientist in between you. I suggest jumping at the start of his strange machine.

#10 + 11 + 12 - I simply jumped over the tenth scientist as I have done previously and continued running forward towards the next scientist. The eleventh and twelfth scientist froze like the seventh scientist so simply jump over them with careful timing. I suggest you jump at the start of the strange machine for safety.

#13 - The thirteenth scientist is similar to eight, five and nine as you have to bounce off the wall and there is a scientist in between you. I suggest jumping at the start of his strange machine.

#14 - The fourteenth scientist will be at the end of the gap when you learn to do the triple jump. If you don't harm him after you do your triple jump he should run to the end of the path and into a wall. He is similar to eight, five, nine and thirteen as you have to bounce off the wall and there is a scientist in between you. I suggest starting directly below where the roof ends.

#15 - The fifteenth scientist will be working in chair doing work as scientists do and as soon as you run towards him he will run towards the end of the path and eventually as most scientists do ... hit a wall. This time it's a little different as there is an explosive that you can use to fire you further. Use this bomb and you should not bounce anywhere near the fifteenth scientist.

If you've followed the following steps, Ghandi should be very proud of you.

Lay Off the Caffeine10
Let your hyper little brother play the game for a bit.   (3) 

To get this achievement you need to 'SPLODE' 300 times in a single level. To 'SPLODE' you simple need to press , , or . Repeat that step 300 times and you should unlock the achievement.

All Hail The Splode King25
Complete the Single Player game in Hardcore mode.    (8) 

The differences between this difficulty and the regular difficulty are that every enemy that you encounter will be able to kill you and whenever you die you will have to start back at the beginning of the mission.

I suggest that you do NOT rush this for when you try and go quickly you make mistakes. Move slow when you can and be sure to use the to see further around the screen. For example you should use the to look around for turrets. With time and perseverance you should unlock this achievement in no time.

Eventual Destruction of a Galaxy10
Be on the lookout for an old friend.   (6) 

For the "Eventual destruction of the galaxy" achievement, on level 3-17 you will fire yourself down between two sets of crushers with a green canister, at the bottom are two scientist who you will need to kill with grenades before they can pull their leavers. Once they're dead run all the way to the left and drop down the hole, at the bottom and a bit to the right you find a glass chamber with "The MAW" in it, simply splode in front of it and you'll get the achievement.
