This guide has spoilers, especially in the maps. It’s not a long game, and it’s going to be short if you know exactly how to visualize areas without having to explore them. The maps link to each other, and sometimes combine many small areas into one map. You will see spoilers very quickly if you open maps. As an example, the dream sequences are all one map, so going “Oh, this is just the first room in the game, I’ve seen it, it’s fine to look at!” is a bad idea. Finish the game, and spend some time exploring looking for gems, before resorting to maps.

Only 1 of the 28 achievements is “missable”, and it’s easy and fast to get it on a replay if you miss it. So nothing important is missable. You can play through blind, then after finishing take all the time you need to get the completionist achievements.

If you absolutely hate missing achievements, and never want to replay ever, you can read the name of the missable achievement and search the guide for it, and not read the rest until later.

 

About Keys and Gems
There are no consequences for spending gems at Jewelers. There are no consequences for borrowing keys from Lenders. It won’t interfere with achievements.

In a typical game, you’ll simply buy the Skeleton Key with your first 30 gems, and not buy or borrow other keys. But there are no consequences for doing it differently.

The maps are linked internally. You can click on room edges and teleporter objects (doors etc.), and follow them through anywhere in the game.

The achievement is to find 128 gems ever, not to have 128 at once. (It’s impossible to have 128 at once, because you need to buy the Underworld Ticket to find gems there.) The Fortune Teller can give you the current total.

4 gems come from the NPCs who send you to get Red Aura, Blue Aura, Springheel Boots, and Spider Gloves. The next time you talk to them, they’ll give you a gem. You don’t need to “get the quest” beforehand; finding the item yourself, then talking to them also works. The other 124 are found in the world.

None of the 128 gems require Red Aura or Blue Aura to reach. You will need to get the auras, to get the two gems given by NPC quests for them. But for the other 126, you don’t have to worry about losing access to them if you give auras to the Thief.

There is a gem[blaxpirit.com] in House of Baffle that seems to give people the most trouble. The map doesn’t really help with finding it. The following are hints, increasingly more revealing towards the bottom.

  • You need to do something here[blaxpirit.com]
  • The key to the solution can be found in the game world
  • The solution is related to this sign[blaxpirit.com]
  • The key number is a roman numeral.
  • The key to the solution can be found here[blaxpirit.com] and here[blaxpirit.com]
  • Isn’t it strange that the location wraps around vertically?
  • The key is 27
  • The sign changes when you fall.
  • Match the key with the sign.
  • Fall until the sign says XXVII, then enter the door

Super Won the Game

Simply win the game. You can’t miss this one.

Grab 'n' Go Grab ‘n’ Go
You took advantage of an opportunity

Okay. This is the only missable achievement, and if you’re “peeking” ahead here to avoid missing it, here’s a hint first: It’s in the tutorial / first dream. The one where you can walk right learning how to jump and ring bells, or walk left to skip it all. So it’s that easy to get on a replay.

Or here’s exactly how to do it: Take the key, but don’t open the door. Go all the way left and leave the tutorial, without using the key.

Muscle Memory Muscle Memory
You remembered something from your childhood

Enter the Konami Code[en.wikipedia.org] on the title screen. Start on the main title screen, the one without the Continue, Start New Game, etc., options. Just the big title. If you don’t have a controller, look in Options / Controls / Bindings / Menus to see which keyboard keys match the controller buttons in the code.

Spoiler tag because it’s more fun if you remember the code! But it’s (Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start) or (WWSSADAD, Escape, Enter, Enter).

The Long Con The Long Con
You gave someone a second chance

Confront the Wizard after winning the game. Unlock every gate in the Underworld[blaxpirit.com] to reach the Evil Wizard[blaxpirit.com] in his hiding spot. He’s blocked and unreachable if you have Red Aura or Blue Aura.

One way is to play through without ever obtaining Red Aura or Blue Aura. (This is the most fun way, and an excuse to do a replay.) Another is to let the Thief[blaxpirit.com] take your Red Aura and Blue Aura. The Thief won’t appear until after you’ve been blocked at the Wizard, so visit Wizard first, then Thief, then Wizard again.

You can’t get the Auras back, and you can permanently lose access to two gems this way! None of the 124 found-in-world gems require Auras to reach. But two of the four gems given as rewards by NPCs are for the Auras. You must get those gems before giving the Auras to the thief. Visit Arcadian Tower[blaxpirit.com] and Desert Ruins[blaxpirit.com] to double-check.
