Wow that's funny, I had this exact same thought a few days ago when I replayed some old games. The number I came up with was around 25k, but I wouldn't play for 16 hours a day, more like 12. With one day of planning in advance I think 30k is possible, but anything more seems very hard. I would love to try this someday, maybe with a ustream video so people can watch it. The problem is, it might take a few months to find the time to do this, and I don't think many people will actually care about it. Sounds like a lot of fun though. :P

Trying to mop up some old games:

Is the 25-point secret medal related to flying enemies broken in 'Fucking bugs'?

Having said that... I hope you didn't rage-reset your game or anything =/

So then getting the 20,000 skull character isn't the secret medal then?

And another question... to get the kill all/small/big enemies medals, do you have to do that in one game? Or is it just kill all of them during the duration of your playing?

It is during the duration of playing. That is the way I got it.

Apropos of nothing, in Insanity Box your combo carries over to random mode if you quit story mode via the pause screen. What that means is that you can play all the levels up to but just shy of the inverted Mario level, quit, start random mode, and then you only need to avoid the Mario level for about 23 levels rather than for 50. Since the Mario level is the only one that consistently offers up any sort of problem, this should be a huge benefit.

Yes.

Well, it might help to actually choose that character and play the game. =)

Weird, the medals link to a deleted movie. You have to click the author and find the movie on his page, so you find this movie that actually gives you medals:

@ DiMono: If you really suck at games, you can also play the first few levels in story mode, quit, and play those few levels again until you have a 50 combo. :P

This is what I did. The problem is I have the medal in-game, but it didn't register in my profile.

I confirm this to be broken as well.

All in-game achievements have their own popup. I don't believe the game uses NG's popups. I thought you failed to get any popup whatsoever.

Oh, and this guy's special power is 1-hit killing large enemies by jumping on them in their "weak spot".

Thanks for the confirmation on the broken medal, I was pretty sure I met the requirements.

Hacsev: I had a connection problem at about the same time yesterday, so maybe that's the issue. Which is why all medals should be resendable.


See this news post for information on a program that does all kinds of neat things with medal statistics.

Not a bad game. Can only play about 10-15 levels at a time though, pressing up many times hurts the wrist haha.

The Medal for Rapid in Insectonator: Zombie Mode is pretty hard. You should have around 20 minutes left for the last 30% or else it's gonna be almost impossible. Don't forget to press pause after every level or the timer will just keep running in the menu, even though you think it stopped. I'm sure someone can do it much faster than this (myself included if I give it another try), but I still felt like making a screenshot for the lulz.=)

Anybody know the best level to beat for the Gone in 30 Seconds challenge in Insectonator? That's the last one I need for the 130% completion medal... after being frustrated to no end with the Assassin challenge (I swear, many of the characters look alike and threw me off).

Also, the damn Armageddon medal didn't unlock for me. Grrrr!!!!

That's the easiest one actually! Play Selectioner. Throw nuke, shoot nuke, throw nuke, shoot nuke etc.. You should be done after 20 to 30 seconds.

Also, the damn Armageddon medal didn't unlock for me. Grrrr!!!!

Yeah I had the same problem with Bullseye, but it did unlock for me during my 2nd playthrough.

Dad, without a doubt. The cheaper characters are useless. The ability to jump on spikes will be necessary at large heights when enemies are few and far between.

I actually prefer the turtle due to the extra hearts. If you're able to avoid the spikes when you get higher up, that extra life boost comes in handy.
