Introduction
Tentacles: Enter the Mind is a 3D platformer that puts you in control of Lemmy -- Dr. Phluff's repressed concept of evil and mischief. Dr. Phluff's cute and crazy ideas have become so out of hand so Phluff's subconscious has hired Lemmy to go through the layers of Phluff's mind to clear out all of the creatures that are taking over. As Lemmy, you need to eat the eyes of the creatures without dying and make it back to a pit stop Phuff's subconscious has set up to advance through the layers and clear Phluff's mind. Currently the game is listed as free to play in the Denmark Windows Store.
  
    Step 1: Early game achievements
None of the achievements are technically missable but there are a few that are far easier on the first few layers since there are not many enemies to deal with. These include "Dodging Pacifist", "Undertaker", "Selective Hunter", and "Orbiter". There is a layer select option in this game so if you happen to miss the above achievements you can always go back and select an earlier layer to make those achievements easier.

Step 2: Play through to Infin-ID
Play through the first 15 layers until you reach the Infin-ID layer which is an infinite layer. You don't need to worry about the other achievements because they are either progression based or are reasonably completeable in Infin-ID. In this step you will find that upgrading your gear and powers is necessary. Try to only buy what is necessary, as some achievements require quite a few coins.

Step 3: Mop-up miscellaneous achievements
While in Infin-ID, mop-up any of the miscellaneous achievements you may have missed. If you have missed some of the early game achievements select an earlier layer to make them easier.

Conclusion
Tentacles: Enter the Mind is an amazing free to play game that doesn't have a strong focus on micro transactions. It is quite engaging and following this guide, you should not have much difficulty with the achievements.

Down the knife hole10
You found the loophole in the knife   

On some of the levels within the layers you will see a knife sticking out of the ground with a Lemmy sized hole near the handle. You need to make it about half way through the hole to trigger the achievement. There isn't a really consistent way of doing this. The way I would recommend would be to get close to the hole and tap fast and repeatedly until Lemmy goes through. This might take a few attempts.

Dodging Pacifist10
You went from one pitstop to the next without killing any enemies!   

This achievement requires you to go from one pit stop to the next pit stop without killing any enemies. A pit stop is not an entire layer, but just a portion of a layer. You know when you are at a pit stop when you attach to the brain and Phluff's subconscious gives you access to the store, eggs, etc. Although it is not totally impossible, it is highly unlikely that you will be able to not kill any enemies from one pit stop to the next in the later layers so do this achievement as soon as possible. If you miss this during the early layers, you can choose to reset back to layer 1 at any time to attempt this again.

Duck And Cover10
You held three rubber duckies at once!   

On some levels within the layers you will see rubber duckies. As long as there are three of them, grab one with each tentacle and on the third one the achievement will unlock. This can be done in multiple places such as the moving duckies but I found the stationary duckies to be easier.

Undertaker10
You picked up 3 tombstones without dying.   

A tombstone appears where you die. You can have one tombstone per screen so you can't just die in the same spot three times, but when your other tombstone is out of sight you can die and a tombstone will be there too. Basically you want to just die a lot and then once you have many tombstones laid throughout the different screens you want to get three without dying. This is best done in the early layers because there are fewer and less threatening enemies to get in your way of grabbing three tombstones. I recommend layer 2, Paranoia for this achievement because in addition to the Big Heads and blue Kamikazes, there are also Spitters to kill you in different places and they don't make going through the levels significantly more difficult.

Orbiter10
Wow, a Kamikaze orbited you!   

This achievement can be rather tricky. You need to get a Kamikaze to go around Lemmy multiple times while Lemmy is nearly motionless. To do this, lure one Kamikaze to an open space and dodge his attacks by going left and right in little circles until the Kamikaze is nearly hitting Lemmy but just missing him slightly. Then make small adjustments so the Kamikaze will continue not to hit Lemmy until the achievement unlocks. I found the chess board the easiest place to do this. Although this achievement does not need to be done early on, it is easier to do so because you will not have to deal with many enemies when isolating the Kamikaze and the Kamikaze will be the slow blue variant.

Center Of Attention10
You were the target of five snipers at once!   

There are multiple places in the later game where 5 or more snipers will target you at once. The most common place though is when you get to a small platform and 8 snipers pop up and target you immediately if you go on top of the elevated portion, triggering the achievement. Most likely you will get this achievement through natural progression through the game. The earliest I believe you can get this achievement is in layer 7, Hysteria. The 5 snipers I got in Hysteria were not what is described above or in the video though.

Humpty Dumpty10
You cracked your first egg!   

  This will likely be your first achievement. In the game there are different eggs and different colored hammers that are randomly generated in the layers. When you get an egg and a hammer that are the same color you can crack the egg when you die or make it to a pit stop. Also, if you find an egg you can usually buy the hammer for it in the store with the coins you collect in your playthroughs after a couple pit stops or deaths.  

Freudian10
You completed the Libido Layer!   

 The Libido layer is the 6th layer in the game and it takes 240 eyes and a stop at a pit stop to beat this layer. As soon as you eat enough eyes without dying to pass it and get to a pit stop, you will advance to the Shame layer and unlock the achievement. 

Not Today10
You just bought yourself some more time!   

 You can get a revive token four ways. Sometimes during the layers a revive token will randomly spawn, when you complete a layer you will sometimes be awarded with a revive token, occasionally when you crack an egg you will be given a revive token, or you can buy one for 15,000 coins. Once you have one you just need to die and when it gives you the option to revive yourself do it. Most likely you will be using revive tokens in the later layers when trying to pass them so you don't need to go out of your way to get this achievement unless you want it earlier. 

Oscillating10
You grabbed the oscilator really tight   

 On some levels within the layers you will see an oscilloscope. All you need to do is attach at least three tentacles to the oscilloscope screen and the achievement will unlock.

Explosive Love10
Great, you used all of your powers!   

You don't have access to all three of the powers until you unlock the berzerker power at 475 eyes eaten and make it to a pit stop. Once you unlock the berzerker power the game will prompt you to try it out once you leave the pit stop by swiping to the right. If you still have at least one of each of the other powers, take this opportunity to swipe down and swipe left when the game allows you to to unlock the achievement. Since you need 475 eyes to unlock the last power, the earliest you can achieve this is layer 9, Guilt. 

Fabulous10
You equipped the rainbow trail and the pink eye.   

 At every pit stop and every death you are given the opportunity to buy items from the store. The items are somewhat random and occasionally there will be a sale on an item. The pink eye costs 6,000 coins and the rainbow trail costs 30,000 coins when not on sale. If you have the coins and see one or both of these items in the shop, buy them. Unless you get lucky and these are on sale or you get them out of eggs this will set you back 36,000 coins in total. Once you equip both of them at the same time the achievement will unlock. 

Mindbuster10
Nice, you killed 5 enemies with one bomb!   

 The easiest way to get this achievement is to upgrade the enemy killing radius of your bombs power to 70 -- which takes a total of 33,000 coins -- and use your bomb when you are in the middle of the platform where 8 enemies pop up. This is the same platform where you can get the "Center Of Attention  "   """"" achievement. If you are directly in the middle of the elevated platform you will kill all 8 enemies. If you are a bit off center you will kill 5-7 enemies which is still enough to get the achievement. See the "Center of Attention" video for the spot described above.

Alternately, revive token bombs do count towards this achievement and their radius is the same as whatever your bombs power is set to so if you happen to die relatively close to five enemies and have a revive token handy you can get this achievement that way as well. Using the revive bomb method, the earliest layer I believe you can obtain this achievement is layer 9, Guilt at the far corner of the chessboard. 

Selective Hunter10
You selectively killed Kamikazes without killing any other creatures!   

 The Kamikazes are one eyed creatures that try to fly into you when they spot you. They appear in blue and red variations, blue Kamikazes being slower than the red. Although it is not necessary to achieve this in the early stages, it is easier to do so because there are less enemies to accidentally eat when you are just trying to eat 10 Kamikazes in a row without eating the other creatures, the other enemies are less aggressive meaning less of a chance for you to die, and there will only be blue Kamikazes so you won't get overwhelmed. I recommend layer 1, Ego for this achievement because the only enemies in this level are Big Heads and blue Kamikazes. 

Purple Prize10
You cracked a purple egg!   

 Purple eggs can start appearing around the 5th layer, Super Ego. It is possible to also find a purple hammer in the levels and this occurrence increases the further you progress in the game. If you don't want to wait to find a matching hammer the shop will usually have a hammer for the egg in about 2-5 pit stops or deaths. In the store the hammer costs 2,500 coins to buy. It is possible to still find purple eggs even in the last layer of the game so don't worry if you don't find the egg right away. 

Black Magic10
You cracked a black egg!   

 Black eggs can start appearing around the 11th layer, Regret. It is also possible to find a black hammer in the levels but it is extremely rare. As with the purple egg, the spawn rate will increase as you progress in the game. If you don't want to wait for a black hammer to appear in the levels you can buy it from the shop in about 2-5 pit stops or deaths. In the store the hammer costs 50,000 coins to buy. It is possible to still find black eggs in the last layer of the game so don't worry if you don't find the egg right away. 

Bullfighter10
You killed a Rammstein without using any powers!   

The Ramstein enemies begin to appear in the 15th layer, ID and can also appear in the Infin-ID layer. Usually these enemies will begin to appear once you have been to a few pit stops in a run. They have 4 eyes to eat and as the name implies will follow and try to ram into you once they see you. It helps to try to isolate this enemy because by itself it is no real threat because you just dodge, eat an eye and repeat. Having extra hearts from your gear also comes in handy since you might get hit a couple times. Using a revive bomb to destroy a Rammstein will not get you the achievement but sometimes once you get killed the Rammstein will be out of range of the revive bomb and you can use it to get another shot at killing it.

No Regrets10
Wonderful, now Dr. Phluff has no regrets!   

 The Regret layer is the 11th layer in the game and it takes 840 eyes and a stop at a pit stop to beat this layer. As soon as you eat enough eyes without dying to pass it and get to a pit stop, you will advance to the Denial layer and unlock the achievement. 

Eight Is Great10
You reached a multiplier of 8!   

  The multiplier in this game starts out at 1 and increases as you eat eyes and collect coins. If you get hit, the multiplier will drop to it's base value. If you don't have this achievement by the end of the game, buy and equip items that increase the coin multiplier. You have four gear slots to work with and if you choose two items which increase the coin multiplier value by 3, you can have a starting multiplier value of 6. It will be a full 6 multiplier so you will only need to raise the multiplier a little over 1 to get to get to a multiplier of 8 which is not difficult.  

Times Ten10
You reached a multiplier of 10!   

The multiplier in this game starts out at 1 and increases as you eat eyes and collect coins. If you get hit, the multiplier will drop to it's base value. If you don't have this achievement by the end of the game, buy and equip items that increase the coin multiplier. You have four gear slots to work with and if you choose three items which increase the multiplier value by 3, you can have a starting multiplier value of 9. It will be a full 9 multiplier so after eating an eye or two or collecting a few coins you will be at a 10 multiplier.

COMPLETED CLOUD SAVE FROM WINDOWS 8
If you have completed the Windows 8 version of this game and have a cloud save from doing so, your progress/equipment carries over, meaning that you can select any layer you want and play with any equipment you bought. Additionally, you will have any excess money/revive tokens you accumulated along with the hammers and eggs you didn't use yet. No achievements will auto-unlock unless you already have equipment that meets the requirements for the multiplier achievements or Fabulous achievement currently equipped.

This is what I consider to be the most efficient way to complete this version of the game with your already completed cloud save from Windows 8.

1) Equip 3-4 pieces of equipment that have 3x coin multipliers. Upon starting a layer, the achievements "Eight Is Great" and "Times Ten" will unlock.
2) Equip the Rainbow Trail and Pink Eye. Once you do that, the "Fabulous" achievement will unlock.
3) Play in the Infin-ID layer and get the easy achievements out of the way. During your time here try to get a black egg and kill a Ramstein to get the "Black Magic" and "Bullfighter" achievements.
4) Switch to the Regret layer and re-do it to get the "No Regrets" achievement. During this step you can also find a purple egg for the "Purple Prize" achievement.
5) Switch to the Libido layer and re-do it to get the "Freudian" achievement.
6) Mop up any achievements you don't yet have in the early layers. You only have to pick up 1 tombstone for the "Undertaker" achievement to unlock.
