******************************************************************************

Hey Guys, welcome to my next Achievement guide.  As you can tell from my user
name, my name is Gamer364.  This guide is designed to help players get all of
the achievements (or trophies for PS3 players) in this game.  Normally I would
have some kind of reason for doing a guide like this one, but the only reason
I have is that at the time of starting this, I've completed the Trophy guide
for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX and it would have been awhile before I summit
it.  I don't think that's much of a reason though.  I try to keep my intros
short anyway, since I don't think you've clicked on this guide to read the
reason for writing the guide anyway.  That said, let's move on with the guide.

Note: I'm aware that there's a Wii U version of this game, but that version
doesn't have an achievement reward system to my knowledge.


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
|                     Stage 3: Achievement/Trophy Overview                   |
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Achievement/Trophy difficulty: 3.5/5

Number of Achievements/Trophies: 20

Least amount of playthroughs to get all Achievements/Trophies: 3 (4 suggested)

Number of Missable Achievements/Trophies: 1

Details: At the start of the game, you have 3 difficulty settings to work with
(Easy, Medium and Hard).  The reason for the 3 playthroughs is that "Bless Me
Bagpipes and "It's A Duck Blur" are only avaiable on Easy and Medium.  Plus,
their's one other difficulty setting that's not available from the start:
Extreme.  In order to unlock this difficulty setting, you have to beat the
game on Hard.  However, the reasons that I've suggested 4 is that...

1. The achievement/trophy "Connoisseur of the Arts" will require one to get a
lot of money anyway and the more money you have by the end of your
playthroughs, the more artwork you'll be able to buy when it's time to make
some purchases.

2. You'll want to better prepair yourself for the harder difficulty settings.
What I mean by this is that, while you could start on (let's say) Easy and
jump to Hard, the difficulty spike can catch up to you.  Starting on Medium
and moving on to Hard won't make this much of a spike, but you'll have a
harder time going through the game (especially if you're going to try for
"Look Ma, No Spats!" on Medium, which I highly advice against).

If at any point during any of your playthroughs you get a 7 in your 10,000
spot, you'll be playing Gyro's mini-game and unlock "A Few Gears Loose".
Also, I'll end up mentioning this later, but if you want to turn Hard Pogo on
at any point during your playthroughs, feel free to do so, but don't do it on
Easy if you want a better chance at "Look Ma, No Spats!"

All that said, I suggest that you start on Easy, so there's no risk of being
kicked out of the level (especially if you're a beginner and you get unlimited
lives on this difficulty setting).  In this playthrough, you're just going for
the story-related achievements/trophies, although if you wanted to, you could
go for the heart containers and get "Bless Me Bagpipes" and try to hit 5
enemies in a single magic coin for "It's A Duck Blur".  This is a good idea if
you want to try getting all of the game's achievements/trophies in 3
playthroughs, but since I suggested 4, I would at least save "Bless Me
Bagpipes" for your Medium playthrough.  The reason for this and as I mentioned
before, their's no risk of being kicked out to the game's level select screen
since you have unlimited lives.

On Easy, I would go for the "Look Ma, No Spats!" in this playthrough because
of the fact you have unlimited lives and take half a heart's worth of damage
if you get hit (theoretically possible on higher difficulty settings, but not
suggested).  That achievement/trophy's done on the Amazon level by the way.
When your Easy playthrough is done, you'll have most (if not all) of the
following achievements/trophies unlocked:

1. Work Smarter Not Harder

2. Superstitious Hocus Pocus

3. Extravagant Housewares

4. Where No Duck Has Gone Before

5. Any Crash You Can Walk Away From

6. Garbage Collector

7. Luck o' the Ducks

8. Bless Me Bagpipes (optional)

9. Look Ma, No Spats! (recommended)

10. A Few Gears Loose (you may luck out and run into this one, but if not,
don't worry for now)

11. It's A Duck Blur (optional)

12. Pogo A Go Go (techically story-related since you have to do this at some
point during the final level)

If you collected $10,000,000 during this playthrough, feel free to add "The
Duck Who Would Be King" to the list.  If not, it'll unlock during your 2nd
playthrough for sure.  You can also add "Sink or Swim" and "Art Aficionado" to
the list if you deside at any point during to take a dive in the money bin with
the former and for some reason buy something from the Art gallery with the
latter, but I chose to save those for later.  One more thing, during the Amazon
level you'll run into a statue.  If in the NES version, that statue would have
asked for payment in order to get pass.  In this version of the game, not only
will it not ask for payment, but you can dish out a little payback and unlock
"Score to Settle" to boot.  Just something to point out.


Next up will be your Medium playthrough.  This playthrough is optional but
recommended as you can just jump straight to Hard next.  If you jump straight
to Hard however, it'll be harder than it was on Easy (unless Medium was your
1st playthrough, which I didn't recommend).  Also, this is the point where
you'll get a difficulty modifier bonus for beating a level.  Might not seem
that much on the surface, but it'll add up over time.  Anyway, this
playthrough will be slightly harder than the Easy playthrough because for now
on, you can take a full heart's worth of damage and you now have a life
counter.  It shouldn't be much harder then Easy, you just have the theat of
being kicked out level if you run out of lives that's all.  Anyway, if you
haven't already done so in your Easy playthrough, you're going to find all of
the Heart Containers for "Bless Me Bagpipes" (at least that will be your main
focus).  If you haven't already got "It's A Duck Blur", this is the
playthrough to do it in.  The reason I say this is that the Magic coins are
not available on Hard or Extreme, so it's best to get that out of the way.  If
you don't have at least $10,000,000 in your bank account already, you will
before this playthrough's over.  Anyway, when this playthrough is over with,
you'll have unlocked the following achievements/trophies:

1. Bless Me Bagpipes (if you haven't already unlocked it)

2. It's A Duck Blur (again, if you haven't already unlocked it)

3. The Duck Who Would Be King (if not unlocked during your Easy playthrough)


You'll now be on your Hard playthrough in order to unlock Extreme.  For this
playthrough and you haven't already done so on you're Easy or Medium
playthroughs, I suggest turning Hard Pogo on.  What Hard Pogo does is that it
makes you press down and the pogo button to do the pogo jump (with it turned
off, you only need to press the pogo button).  The reason you want to turn
Hard Pogo on now is that on Extreme, you're forced to playthrough the game
with the option turned on.  For this reason, it's best to get use to it now.
Anyway, you're only focus on this playthrough is to make it through this
playthrough.  If this is your 2nd playthrough coming from Easy, this can be a
pain in the neck.  Otherwise, the only real difference is that you'll have no
map to work with (Easy and Medium both had a map for you to look at, but you
have to build it up with the latter).  I would also suggest you go out of your
way to look for Mrs. Beckley so you'll know where she is in each of the 5 main
levels (Transylvania, Amazon, Moon, Himalayas and African Mines).  As far as
the Heart containers go and the number of hearts you have to work with, you'll
only be able to find 2 of the games heart containers in the following levels:

A. Transylvania

B. The Himalayas

The other 3 levels not mentioned above will contain a hidden treasure that's
worth $1,000,000.  For this reason, the max number of hearts you'll have for
this and Extreme playthroughs is 5 (on Easy and Medium, it was 8).  When this
playthrough is said and done, you'll have unlocked the following
achievements/trophies:

1. Tougher than the Toughies

2. Healthy Appetite

3. The Duck Who Would Be King (if not unlocked during your Easy playthrough
and chose not to do a playthrough on Medium)


Finally, you'll be playing the game on Extreme.  This playthrough has
everything you would expect on Hard with one major difference.  If you haven't
been pretty good about not getting hit at this point...  Let's just say it'll
teach you a lesson about what happens when you lose all of your lives on this
difficulty setting and the results are no different if you haven't been good
about beating the game in one sitting.  They're a few of guides listed in
"Smarter than the Smarties" if you need help on this diffculty setting.  When
you finally beat the final level of the game (not the main 5), you'll unlock
this achievement/trophy.


If you haven't done everything by the time you've decided to do the last of
the main 5 levels, you'll be doing a clean up playthrough on a diffculty of
your choice (I suggest Hard since you get a biggest modifier bonus with no
theat of...  Uhhh...  Better not mention it yet, but let's just say it's not
good (unless you still need "It's A Duck Blur" and chose not to go after it
after your Medium playthrough in which case I would suggest Medium since you
have some kind of modifier bonus)).  Anyway, just get through the tutorial
level as fast as you can and start spending some money.  If you haven't gotten
"A Few Gears Loose" at any point during your 4 main playthroughs (and maybe
the unoffical one you had to do for "It's A Duck Blur") and you happen to get
a 7 in the 10,000 in your bank account, stop purchasing stuff and pick a level
to start up the bonus level (I suggest the Amazon if you didn't unlock "Score
to Settle" during any of your 4 playthroughs for some weird reason.  When you
get back from the level you've selected, continue to purchase stuff until
you've brought everything in the Art Gallery.  If you haven't already done so,
head into the Money Vault and take a dive for "Sink or Swim".  When you're
done cleaning up, you should have all of the remaining achievements/trophies
listed below:

1. Connoisseur of the Arts

2. Art Aficionado (if not already unlocked)

3. Sink or Swim (again, if not already unlocked)

4. Score to Settle (you had 4 playthroughs (and maybe an unoffical one) to do
this and you decided now was the time, why?)

5. A Few Gears Loose (if you were unlucky enough not to get this pior to your
clean up run)

6. It's A Duck Blur (if you didn't unlock it during your Easy or Medium and
decided not to go back for it)

When you do, you can enjoy your 100% completion of this game.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note for PS3 players: Unless otherwise specified in the guide for an
Trophy, all of the game's trophies are Bronze.  For this reason, you will not
see the Trophy Color for each of the Trophies for the PS3 version of the game,
like I've done for all of the other Trophy guides in the past (all of which
were combined with the Xbox 360 in the achievement guides).

Note for Xbox 360 players: You will notice I have the Gamerscore for the XBLA
(Xbox Live Arcade) and Retail versions of this game.  This is because Capcom
desided to inflate some of the game's achievements to meet the 1000G retail
standard for the Retail version of this game.  The XBLA version has 400G while
the Retail version (as somewhat mentioned in the last sentence) has 1000G.

A. Work Smarter Not Harder
Description: Defeat Big Time Beagle using your noggin
XBLA Gamerscore: 10
Retail Gamerscore: 20
Guide: Story-related, so it can't be missed.  You get this for beating Big
Time Beagle in the Money Bin level (which is the tutorial level).  I've
decided to include a boss strategy for this boss, as well as the other bosses
this game has to offer, just in case you're having trouble with any of the
game's bosses.  That said, here's the boss strategy for the Money Bin's boss.


Boss Fight: Big Time Beagle
Guide: He'll start things off by runing in the middle of the area and
stopping.  Once he moves again, jump over him and stand kind of in the middle
while ducking.  He'll then throw either a bust or a globe at you either really
high or low.  Once it lands, head on over to the other side of the object and
once the boss starts moving towards the middle of the area again, hit it
towards a hanging safe and it should drop on him.  When it does, jump up and
pogo his head.  After a total of 5 hits and the boss will call it quits.  In
summery...

1. He'll charge to the middle, stop and come at you again.  He only does this
one time.

2. He'll then throw a globe/bust at you, so make sure you're in the middle of
the area while ducking, just in case he throws low.

3. When he moves again, hit the object towards the hanging safe.

4. Once the safe hits him, hit him on his head with your cane (pogo style of
course).

5. Repeat 2-4 four addtional times and the boss will call it quits.


B. Superstitious Hocus Pocus
Description: Collect the Coin of the Lost Realm
XBLA Gamerscore: 15
Retail Gamerscore: 50
Guide: Story-related, so it can't be missed.  You get this for beating Magica
DeSpell in the Transylvania level (which is the 2nd main level in the level
select screen).  Here's the boss strategy for Transylvania's boss.


Boss Fight: Magica DeSpell
Guide: She will throw either the Pillars or Beams of Fire when she's in the
background.  If it's the Pillars of Fire, she can trap you in them if your not
careful, which is bad news if you're already low on health at that point.
She'll use a combination of the Pillars and Beams a total of 5 times before
she'll warp to your playing field.  Once she does, go on over to her and hit
her.  When you do, she'll put up 6 mirrors and put herself in 1 of them.  I
don't recommend trying this in real life, but you have to break the mirror you
spot Magica in.  Once you do, go on over to her and hit her again.  She'll then
transform herself into a bird and fly to one side of the screen.  If you're
playing the game with Hard Pogo turned on (either by choice or through Extreme
Mode), make sure you're holding down the entire time.  Once she fly down and
tries to hit you, jump up and hit her with your pogo stick.  Once you do,
she'll then appear on either side of the screen and try to hit you with a 3
pronged spell spell.  Go after her (making sure you jump over the lowest one)
and hit her once more.  She'll back off after 15 hits (counting the mirror as
a hit).  I have found however that it may take less then that as I have been
hit in her bird form before and I've hit her less times then 15 before she
back's off, so it could actually be less then 15.  Reguardless, pick up the
Coin of the Lost Realm to finish the level.  In summery...

1. Magica DeSpell will start things off with the Fire spells.  Once she's
finish, that'll be your chance to hit her.

1a. If she tries the Pillars of Fire spell, just move to the left and right,
depending on where they're going to (try to) hit you.  Just be careful that
she doesn't trap you.  You can walk right through them breifly because they're
are a harmless beam of light at 1st.  If you're going to exploit that, do it
quickly because they'll turn into huge flame rather quickly.

1b. If she tries the Beams of Fire spell, you'll see some blocks on top of the
beam.  Jump on those (but DO NOT pogo on them).  Depending on the difficulty
setting, you may also see some treasure chests as well.  If you open them up,
you'll see some Ice Cream that restores your health by 1 heart.

2. She'll then conjure up 6 mirror and put herself in one of them.  Pogo the
one you see Magica in.  Once you do that, hit her in the head again.

3. She will then transform herself into a bird and fly to one side of the
screen.  When she flies down and tries to hit you, jump up and hit her with
your pogo stick.  If you're playing on Extreme Mode, or if you have Hard Pogo
turned on by choice, you're going to want to hold down the entire time.

4. Once you hit her, Magica appear on either side of the screen and try to hit
you with a 3 pronged spell spell.  Jump over the lowest one and hit her once
more with your cane.

5. After dealing a total of 15 hits (between doing 1-4 enough times), Magica
will call it quits, but swears that it won't be the last time you'll run into
her.  When she does, pick up the Coin of the Lost Realm to beat the level.


C. Extravagant Housewares
Description: Collect the Sceptre of the Incan King
XBLA Gamerscore: 15
Retail Gamerscore: 50
Guide: Story-related, so it can't be missed.  You get this for surviving the
assault of the Statue of King Manco Capquack in the Amazon level (which is the
1st main level in the level select screen).  Here's the boss strategy for
The Amazon's boss.


Boss Fight: Statue of King Manco Capquack
Guide: It will start things off by being in his head phase.  It will bounce
and slide around, trying to hit you.  Pogo it on top of his head.  If it jumps
in the air and spins, you have to jump before it hits the floor, dammaging
you.  Hit the head 3 times and it'll retreat to the background.  It'll then
attempt to crush you with the walls of the area, but it's nice enough to leave
you with a safe spot.  Other than retreat to those safe spots, their's nothing
you can do but wait until it desides that you had enough for now and return to
the main area.  Hit it a total of 12 times and the area you're in will
collapse all around you, signaling the end of the fight.  Dispite the fact
you came here for the Sceptre of King Manco Capquack, you let Launchpad rescue
you from the temple.  The tribe members will hand over the Sceptre they found
for effectivlly giving them back the temple though, ending the level for you.
In summery...

1. The statue's head will be in the main area to start things off with.  Hit
the head 3 times and it'll retreat to the background.  If it jumps up into the
air, jump before it slams the ground, dammaging you.

2. The statue will then attempt to crush you with the walls of this area.  All
you can do here is to retreat to the safe spots until it desides you had
enough for now.

3. Once it returns the main area, repeat 1 and 2 until you hit the head 12
times, effectivly getting the Sceptre and ending the level.


D. Where No Duck Has Gone Before
Description: Collect the Green Cheese of Longevity
XBLA Gamerscore: 15
Retail Gamerscore: 50
Guide: Story-related, so it can't be missed.  You get this for beating the
Space Rat in the Moon level (which is the 5th main level in the level select
screen).  Here's the boss strategy for The Moon's boss.


Boss Fight: Space Rat
Guide: This boss fight's really simple.  This boss will use one of 3 attack
patterns listed below:

1. Ledge Jump: He will hop on one of the ledges then jump back down.

2. Teleport: He will turn green, run off screen and pretty much teleport all
over the place.

3. Side-to-Side: He will run to one side of the screen and appears on the
other side.  I have only seen this boss run to one side of the screen and just
return to the center though.

What all these attack patterns have in common, is that it all ends with the
rat being in the center.  Pogo it when it returns to the center.  If it does
number 1: Just make sure you're not on a ledge, or if you are, quickly get
off it.  If it does number 2: Your safest bet is to wait on a ledge on either
side.  If it teleports to the ledge that you're at, get off and under it and
get back on it once more.  It only uses this attack pattern if you hit him 3
times.  If it does number 3: Just jump over it and hit it when it returns to
the center.  It's done after it takes a total of 12 hits.  Once this is the
case, pick up the Green Cheese of Longevity to end the level.  No need for a
summery here, because as stated before, this boss fight's really simple.


E. Any Crash You Can Walk Away From
Description: Collect the Lost Crown of Ghengis Khan
XBLA Gamerscore: 15
Retail Gamerscore: 50
Guide: Story-related, so it can't be missed.  You get this for beating the
Yeti in the Himalayas level (which is the 4th main level in the level select
screen).  Here's the boss strategy for The Himalayas' boss.


Boss Fight: Yeti
Guide: Like the Space Rat, this boss fight's also really simple.  This boss
will use one of 2 attack patterns listed below:

1. Hop: She (no, I didn't mean "He" as someone who will be mentioned when the
boss fight's over with will point out) will hop to either side of the screen
eventrually starting number 2 below.  If you do this fight right, you'll only
have to worry about getting under her once (you're not clever for pointing out
how dirty that sounds).  She may also deside to jump straight up.  When that
happens, jump up yourself (just before or a bit after she uses this attack) to
avoid taking dammage.

2. Wall Punch: When she's done with the 1st pattern, she'll punch the wall,
causing Ice Blocks to fall and try to hit you.

Survive number 2 long enough and eventually a round rock will drop.  When it
does, you'll want to hit it when the yeti's at a certain position, depending
on where the rock lands.

If it lands towards the middle of the area: You can pretty much hit the rock
right away.

If it lands towards either side of the screen: Wait for the Yeti to hop once
and hit the rock.

Either way, once she's pushed deep in the snow, jump and pogo her with your
cane, making sure you're on the other side of her when she starts hopping
again.  This fight is over after the Yeti takes a total of 5 hits.  After the
3rd hit, she'll remove the giant Ice Blocks (which is the reason she'll be in
deep snow) on the side, so the rock drop exclusivly on the sides of the
screen.  Upon the 5th hit, Webby will put a stop to the fight, saying that the
reason why she's attacking you is because she's got something stuck in her
foot.  Upon closer inspection, you'll find out the something in question is
the Lost Crown of Ghengis Khan.  The level will automaticly end after that.
Again, no need for a summery here, because as stated before and like the Space
Rat, this boss fight's really simple.


F. Garbage Collector
Description: Collect the Giant Diamond of Inner Earth
XBLA Gamerscore: 15
Retail Gamerscore: 50
Guide: Story-related, so it can't be missed.  You get this for beating the
Terra Firmie King in the African Mines level (which is the 3rd main level in
the level select screen).  Here's the boss strategy for The African Mines'
boss.


Boss Fight: Terra Firmie King
Guide: This boss has a 3 part attack pattern, which is simple enough to
understand.

1. Roll: He will roll towards you and to the other side of the screen.  When
he stops, pogo him.  This is the only time you'll be able to hit him.

2. Loop-de-Loop: He'll then rev up and do quite a few loop-de-loops around the
room.  Each time he comes around to hit you, jump over him.  When he's done,
he'll stop and jump into the background, doing his 3rd and final part of the
attack.

3. Horn Blow: He will blow either the Orange (I've read Red, but it looks
Orange to me) or Purple horn.

If he blows the Orange Horn: You just need to dodge some rocks.

If he blows the Purple Horn: All you can do is Pogo jump and hope the stampede
of the Terra Firmies don't hit you (whenever he blows this horn, I've been hit
by the stampede almost everytime).

Either way, when he returns to the main area, he'll do number 1 again.  When
you hit him a total of 5 times, he'll call it quits.  When this happens,
Scrooge (You) will tell the king to knock it off with these "Games" that are
causing the earthquakes and scaring the workers and to hand over the Giant
Diamond of Inner Earth while he's at it.  The king thinks that Scrooge is
refering to "Garbage Rocks" and hands it over, telling him take all the other
ones while he's at it.  The level will automaticly end after that.  Like the
Space rat and Yeti bosses, their's no need for a summery here due to the
simplistic nature of this boss.


G. Luck o' the Ducks
Description: Get back what Magica stole
XBLA Gamerscore: 25
Retail Gamerscore: 75
Guide: Story-related, so it can't be missed.  You get this for beating Dracula
Duck, taking back your dime and escaping the lava in the final level (which is
Mount Vesuvius).  Here's the boss strategy for the Dracula Duck boss.


Boss Fight: Dracula Duck
Guide: The summery of this boss fight is that he will start things off in his
"normal" form then Magica will throw a potion into the cauldron causing him
to transform into the potion in question is based on (whenever he gets hit of
course).  

1. Normal: He will float in the air and will have a bat fly after you.  Pogo
off this bat and Pogo him.  This is the only time you'll be able to hit him.

2. Orange Potion: He'll be in his "Giant" form when this potion's used.  In
this form, he will try to bite you with his fangs.  Move to one side of the
screen so he bites that side while you retreat to the other side.  If he
doesn't move far enough to either side of the screen, ducking will produce
the same result.  After several attempts, this potion will wear off.

3. Green Potion: He'll be in his "Dragon" form when this potion's used.  In
this form, he will spit fireballs at you.  Just move out of the way of the
fireball (I just Pogo Jump around for the heck of it).  In my opinion, this is
the easiest form not to get hit in, because the fireballs don't cover enough
range to where it would hit you.  In fact, I've only ever got hit once and
that was before I've even desided to write this guide.*  After several
fireballs, this potion will wear off.

*Which is after I've got done with the Trophy Guide for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5
ReMIX, which I was waiting until Christmas to get at the time of starting this
guide.

4. Red Potion: He'll be in his "Bat" form when this potion's used.  In this
form, he split into multiple bats and try to squish you with them.  The bats
will shuffle into a formation, but will end up leaving a safe spot for you to
take cover in.  They seem to wait until you've gotten to the said spot, so
don't worry if you're at one side of the screen and the safe spots in the
other.  Dispite this, I've found this form to be tricky in terms of not
getting hit at times, because I could be in the safe spot and take dammage
anyway.  Reguardless, this potion will wear off when you survive long enough.

When you've hit Dracula Duck enough times in his Normal Form, he'll be higher
up then usual after being done with one of the 3 potions listed above and
he'll throw 2 bats (one at a time) at you.  Same strategy applies though.
Also, if you fail to hit him (either you miss the bat(s) or you take dammage),
he'll teleport to a different position, giving you another chance effectivly.
I think he'll wait until he actually gets hit before going into one of his
other 3 forms, so try not to worry about not being able to hit him in any
cycle.  Reguardless, he'll turn into dust after 6 hits.


After that, you and Magica will race for the Number One Dime.  Her method will
be just to fly up (not just because she's a cheater, but also she doesn't have
anything to climb on really).  You on the other hand will need to climb your
way to the dime and fast.  You do get a lot of leeway here, but try not to
spend more then a few seconds (like 1, maybe 2, 3 or even 4) per section, or
Magica will get the dime and you will lose a life.  I always seem to lose at
least 1 life when I come here after beating Dracula Duck, but hopefully you
won't have any bad luck here (especially if you're on Extreme and you're down
to your last life).

Once you've gotten to the dime 1st, Magica will leave and you will have to
escape the mountain.  The lava will be chasing you and if you miss a jump,
you'll lose a life.  Climb you're way to the very last platform, Launchpad
will rescue you, the final scenes will take over and you've won.

Glitch Warring: It is possible to lose a life and be kicked out to the level
select room if you lost the race for the dime.*  I think this might be because
the game thinks you've lost your last life and didn't see any reason to reset
the race.  I've read about this happening on the PS3 version, but it might
also apply to the 360 and PC versions as well.  I also think this has been
patched by now, but just throwing this warring out there, just in case.

*Unless you were playing on Extreme at the time, in which case it would kick
you out to the main menu.


H. The Duck Who Would Be King
Description: Collect $10,000,000
XBLA Gamerscore: 15
Retail Gamerscore: 35
Guide: For this one, you need to have $10 Million in the money vault.  It
needs to be all at once, but you will need a lot more then $10 million to buy
all the art for "Connoisseur of the Arts" anyway, so if you wait until you
have enough, you'll unlock this automaticly (pretty much).

I. Bless Me Bagpipes
Description: Collect All the Heart Containers on Easy or Medium difficulty
XBLA Gamerscore: 35
Retail Gamerscore: 75
Guide: As the description for this suggests, you need to find all of the Heart
Containers.  This can only be done on Easy or Medium (I did it on Medium).
They're a total of 5 you have to find and you have 3 hearts to start things
off with, so that will give you a total of 8 hearts when you find them all.

Here's a Youtube video below if you need help finding them.  It was made by
packattack04082.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9knBC7ypfE

Remember, it has to be on either Easy or Medium.

J. Tougher than the Toughies
Description: Beat game on Hard difficulty
XBLA Gamerscore: 40
Retail Gamerscore: 100
Guide: Story-related, but you have to be on Hard in order to unlock this.
Refer to "Smarter than the Smarties" for the differences between this, Easy,
Medium and Extreme Difficulty settings.

I highly suggest that during your Hard playthrough that you play with Hard
Pogo turned on.  To do the Hard Pogo move, you need to jump and hold down and
the pogo button (X/B 360, []/() PS3 and not sure what buttons you use on PC).
The reason you want to play the game with the option turned on is because
you're better prepaired for Extreme where you're forced to have this on.

K. Smarter than the Smarties
Description: Beat game on Extreme difficulty
XBLA Gamerscore: 75
Retail Gamerscore: 150
Guide: This achievement comes as a Silver trophy for those playing the PS3
version of this game.  This one's Story-Related, but you need to have the
difficulty setting on Extreme in order to unlock this.  In order to even play
on Extreme however, you need to beat the game on Hard 1st.  Here are the
differences between the 4 difficulty settings (as taken from BHodges'
walkthrough with a minor change) below:

EASY

1. Unlimited Lives
2. Map available
3. Take 1/2 a heart of damage at a time
4. Slower enemies
5. Maximum of 8 hearts possible


MEDIUM

1. Start game with 2 lives
2. Mrs. Beakley will always give you a 1-Up Doll
3. There is a map, but you have to "build" it as you go
4. Take 1 full heart of damage at a time
5. Maximum of 8 hearts possible


HARD

1. Start the game with 2 lives
2. Mrs. Beakley will always give you a 1-Up Doll
3. No map
4. No cakes
5. No invincibility coins
6. Take 1 full heart of damage at a time
7. Maximum of 5 hearts possible
8. Can only find Heart Containers in the Himalayas and Transylvania stages
9. The remaining Heart Container treasure chests now contain Hidden Treasures
   worth a whopping $1,000,000


EXTREME (Unlock by beating the game on Hard)

All the "fun" of Hard plus:

1. Hard Pogo option is on
2. NO SAVING UNTIL YOU BEAT THE GAME!!!


Some advice for this is to turn quick cinemas on.  This will not only let you
beat the game faster, but in the Money Bin level, you won't have to deal with
the tutorial as much, effectively saving your lives (and believe me, you'll
want all of the lives you can get your hands on for Mount Vesuvius).  Here's a
guide to Extreme mode if you need a help with this.  It was made by
Mancerelectro.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=547716

If you are not sure where you're suppose to get extra lives at, here's a
Youtube video showing you just that.  It was made by Nytegard.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3n2NesOsx0

Note: The one in Mount Vesuvius isn't shown in this video.  According to this
video's description, it's "in one of the chests which normally would be
there".

You could also have a look at this video if you need a video walkthrough for
Extreme mode.  It was made by packattack04082.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izXEzo5khHY

Note: Assumes that you're playing the Wii U version, but it should still apply
to the other 3 versions of the game.  Also, this playthrough doesn't go in
order of the route listed in the Extreme mode FAQ.

L. Connoisseur of the Arts
Description: Unlock all art in the Gallery
XBLA Gamerscore: 50
Retail Gamerscore: 125
Guide: You need to purchase every peice of art work this game has to offer.
To purchase all of them, you're going to need about $75 million (more
suggested).  You get money by collecting all of the game's gems you happen to
run across (and if you're playing on either Hard or Extreme, Hidden Treasure,
which is worth $1 million).  I wouldn't go out of my way to pick them up
unless I know I can do so safely on Extreme though (no saving until you beat
the game, in case you forgot).  If you were playing the game on a higher
difficulty setting like the one I just mentioned, you'll get a difficulty
modifier bonus at the end of a level.  If you were playing the game 4 times
like I did, you should have enough to buy everything (though, I did an extra
playthrough on Hard, up to the point where I would have one level left to
play, just to be safe).

M. Art Aficionado
Description: Buy art in the gallery
XBLA Gamerscore: 5
Retail Gamerscore: 15
Guide: You'll be going for "Connoisseur of the Arts" anyway, so don't worry
about not getting this.

N. Look Ma, No Spats!
Description: Enter the underground section of Amazon and climb up the other
side using only the pogo jump
XBLA Gamerscore: 15
Retail Gamerscore: 30
Guide: I would suggest you find the 3 coins here before attempting this (or at
least the one in the middle of the path you have to take), as this one's quite
tricky.  I would also suggest you only try this on Easy, so their's no risk
of being kicked off to the level select screen.  One more thing, I highly
advise against having Hard Pogo turned on as you have to hit down and the pogo
button to do the pogo jump (though, at the end of the day I don't think it'll
matter).

Anyway, you have to get from one side of the section to another using only
Pogo Jump.  Easy on paper, but a pain in the @$$ in practice.  To see what I
mean, or if you need help with this, check out either one of these Youtube
videos below.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIQRRKOiOIU
Made by AcidDrop20.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAa1mwkxSAY
Made by kittygetwet.

As demostrated by both videos, you can start from either side, as it doesn't
matter.  AcidDrop's video starts from the right, while kitty's from the left.
You will need to learn how to do the short jump in order to get this.  To do a
short pogo jump, let go pogo button after you've hit the ground (after getting
a bit of air of course).  If you stop pogo-ing (either by choice or because
you've touched an non-bounceable edge) or get hit at anytime, you'll have to
restart from either side again (which is what makes this so tricky).  I've
tried it from the right, but I ultimatly did it starting from the left (on my
1st try to).  By the way and as seen in those videos, you'll run into this
during the Amazon level.

O. Sink or Swim
Description: Dive into the Money Bin
XBLA Gamerscore: 5
Retail Gamerscore: 15
Guide: At any time while you're at the level select room, walk right in front
of the vault and press the button that pops up above Scrooge (A in the 360
version, X in the PS3 and not sure about PC).  After that, take a dive and it
should unlock.  Personally, this was the last thing I did before I got 100% on
the 360 version, but like I said, you can do this one at anytime when you're at
the level select room.

P. Score to Settle
Description: Scrooge doesn't take kindly to being swindled by statues
XBLA Gamerscore: 10
Retail Gamerscore: 25
Guide: You'll run into this statue at some point after entering the temple in
the Amazon level.  If you've played the NES version before (I've haven't), the
statue in question will require payment to let Scrooge by pass him (depending
on the route you had him take of course).  This remake gives Scrooge (You) a
chance at a little payback (and be awarded with some Gamerscore (360), a
Bronze Trophy (PS3) or a Steam Achievement (PC) to boot).  All you need to do
for this one is to destory the statue by any means necessary and that's it.
You'll get $300,000 in Rubies for doing this.

Q. A Few Gears Loose
Description: Get to the secret gyro area in the clouds
XBLA Gamerscore: 10
Retail Gamerscore: 20
Guide: In order to access this area, you need to have a 7 in the 10 thousand
spot in your total.  It doesn't matter if it's $70,000, $370,000 or even
something like $100,070,000, just as long as you have a 7 in their, that's all
this achievement/trophy cares about.  You may end up getting this as you
playthrough the game, but your best bet on getting this is to spend some money
for the Art gallery.  You'll know if you're about to enter the secret area, as
you'll see Scrooge hanging from a rope about to land in the clouds.  It
doesn't matter if you actually complete the secret area (by (more or less)
collecting all of the gems) or if you fail out, as it'll unlock upon entering
the area.  You'll get $88,000 for collecting all of the gems that Gyro drops.

R. It's A Duck Blur
Description: Defeat 5 enemies under the effect of 1 magic coin
XBLA Gamerscore: 10
Retail Gamerscore: 20
Guide: The magic coin makes you invincible, meaning you can run through pretty
much everything the game throws at you.  However, like all moments of
invincibility, it wears off after a short time.  During that short time (and
like the description suggests), you must kill 5 enemies while you're
invincible.  This can be done pretty much anywhere in the game, but I've read
the Amazon and Moon levels are the easiest places to do this in.  You may end
up getting this as you play through the game, but if for some reason that you
don't, the foes do reappear after scrolling the screen to one side long
enough and then double back.  The magic coin can only be found on the Easy and
Medium difficulty settings, as they are replaced by Ice Cream cones on Hard
and Extreme.

S. Healthy Appetite
Description: Eat some of Mrs. Beakley's delicious treats
XBLA Gamerscore: 5
Retail Gamerscore: 15
Guide: You can find Mrs. Beakley on pretty much all of the game's 5 main
levels (unless you're playing on either Hard or Extreme, in which case she
can only be found on the Amazon, African Mines and Moon levels).  You only
need to visit one of her locations, but I advise finding her on all of the
levels she's in (especially on Extreme) because she'll give you a 1up doll
along with the Ice Cream cones (and Cake if you're playing on Easy or Medium).
Here's a Youtube video of all of her locations below.  This video was made by
packattack04082.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ohsEie5xPo

Note: Assumes that you're playing the Wii U version, but it should still apply
to the other 3 versions of the game.

Remember, Mrs. Beakley will show up in only the Amazon, African Mines and Moon
levels if you're playing on Hard or Extreme.  If playing on Easy or Medium
however, she'll be found in Transylvania and Himalaya levels as well.

T. Pogo A Go Go
Description: Defeat 5 enemies in a row with pogo jump without touching the
ground
XBLA Gamerscore: 15
Retail Gamerscore: 30
Guide: Technically Story-Related, as you're forced to do this at some point
during the Mount Vesuvius level.  Like the description for this suggests, you
need to kill at least 5 enemies in a row using pogo jump with touching the
ground at all.  This will prove tricky to do outside of Mount Vesuvius
(though, I came close to doing it at the African Mines level), so if you can
do it outside of Mount Vesurvius, give yourself a pat on the back.  Otherwise,
and like I said before, you're pretty much forced to do this in the Mount
Vesuvius level.

|                   Stage 5: The Game's Unlockable Awards                    |
\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/

Note: Unless updated otherwise, this only applies to those who have the Xbox
360 version of the game.  Also, both of these are unlocked as part of the
game's story, so don't worry about not getting either one of these.

A. New Scrooge
How do you unlock it: Beat any of the 5 main levels!
Guide: After the Money Bin level, you get to choose which of the 5 main levels
you'll play 1st.  Choose your 1st level and beat it and it'll unlock itself.

B. 8-Bit Scrooge
How do you unlock it: Beat the game on any difficulty!
Guide: Like "How do you unlock it" says, you just need to beat the game for
the 1st time (be it on Easy, Medium or Hard, the former 2 suggested though)
and that's it.  This will unlock itself right around the same time as the
"Luck o' the Ducks" achievement.


==============================================================================
|                         Stage 6: How to Contact me                         |
==============================================================================

You have 3 Main ways of contacting me:

1. Send me a E-mail
2. Send me a message on my Gamertag on X-Box Live
3. Send me a message on my PSN Profile

My E-mail address shadowjohn91(at)yahoo(dot)com.
My Gamertag is Gamer364.  This can be done only through a text message on the
Xbox 360.
My PSN name is TurboStitch.  Like my Gamertag, this can only be done via text
message on the PS3.

E-mail or Message me if you:

A. See a spelling error: I may have made spelling errors as I was writing
this.

B. Have a question that needs asking: You may have something that needs
clearing up or something to that affect.

C. Have a correction to make: I'm not 100% sure on some of the stuff mentioned
though out the guide.

D. Want to use my guide on your website: I personally have no problem
letting you use my guide on your website, as long as you ask me first, and you
give me credit for it.

E. Think you see someone using my guide without permission: I don't like it
when people steal my stuff (at least, not without asking me first).  I don't
do it to other people (at least without giving other people credit for the
idea), so why do it to me anyway?

F. Have something to add-on to this or that/there's something I forgot to
include: If there something you think I should have included, but I didn't,
you are encouraged to send me an Email for this or that.

Do note that if you do decide you want to message me, make sure if the topic
is about Ducktales Remastered.

As of right now the only sites that have permission to use my guide:
A. GameFAQs (I have an ancount with them, so they don't really need my
permission.)
B. Neoseeker (The owner got permission in advanced)
C. SuperCheats (The owner got permission in advanced)
More to come (maybe).

Don't even think about email me if you are going to send me:
A. Hate Mail
B. Spam
C. Name Calling mail
D. Barelly readable/Unreadable mail
E. Mail with mostly creative words (if you get my drift)

Letter A I take offence to, because I don't send hate mail to no one.

I have a Spam safeguard with yahoo, and it'll tell me if I have spam or not
with Letter B.  Also, if I think your trying sending me spam on Xbox Live,
don't think I won't wirte a complant about you, and/or tell Microsoft on you.

With letter C, I also take offence, because I get name called in school.

Letter D, If your sending me an E-mail, have spell check avaiable to you and
your not sure of your spelling, then why not use it?

Letter E, Unless I messed up that badly, there's really no reason for that
anyway.

All of these things can and will make me think your a bad person, when in
reality your probably not.  All in all, just don't do it.

Follow these rules, and if you add-on and/or correct something, I'll give you
credit for it.

Note: Don't get discouraged if I don't answer you right away.  Sometimes, I
might be on the Computer and sometimes I'll be on Xbox Live.  Your best bet
is to send both an E-mail and an Xbox Live message.  That way if I don't get
one of your messages, I'll still be able to get the other message.  Even
then, I might still not get your message right away.

The End
