Act III of the game consists of 9 levels, level 31 "The Outsider" to level 39 "Cthulhu Rising". From here on you will be confronted with monsters in a handful of levels, which you have to kill or simply runaway from them. They can kill you pretty fast if they get you so watch out. The other levels are simple and just contain puzzles. So just watch out you don't fall to death by accident here.

EDIT: You don't have to start over the game from the beginning. Just select Level 31 from the main menu.

I recommend that you should finish the game first before you attempt this achievement. In that way you will know what you have to do in those levels.

First of all, to make this easier you will need a secondary memory unit additionally to your savegame on your harddisk. either if you have a USB stick or just use the Cloud-storage (if you are a gold member of Xbox Live). Every time you cleared a level without dying, wait until the next level starts. Then use the guide button and exit to the Xbox dashboard. Switch to your settings and backup the savegame from hdd to your secondary memory unit (or cloud). If you really happen to die in a level, you always can use your backup savegame. EDIT: As Billy Horrible mentions, this method also seem to work with checkpoints during the levels.

Also Remember, that if you know you are about to die, but didn't die YET, you quickly can pause the game and revert to the last checkpoint. You will still get the achievement. But attention: It MAY happen, that the game autosaves, when you want to revert the previous checkpoint. If this happens, even if you do revert the last checkpoint, the game will think you have died and you will not get the achievement at the end. Keep that in mind.

Level 31 "The Outsider": Just one single enemy, one of those fish-monsters you saw throughout the game before. If you kill him, you will also be awarded with the "Path of the Slayer" achievement.

Level 33 "From Beyond": In this level you can't fight the monsters, you just have to run away towards the exit. Note that the "Gates of Shub-Niggurath" achievement can be obtained in this level

Level 37: "Dark Young": In this level, you have to kill a big monster by throwing 4 crates of TNT at it. NOTE: That thing is faster than you, so you won't be able to outrun it on the stone paths. Also this monster has a pretty large range, so watch out.
The most important thin on this level is patience

Level 39: "Cthulhu rising": Note if you havent played this level yet. It's not your objectice to kill Xander with the TNT. You have to destory 6 portals. Attention, Xander will constantly trow TNT crates at you. Get stuck in the blast radius is instant death! My tip would be as follow: Dodge his first attack. To to this wait in fron of the bumper until he trows the crate. start running towards your TNT crate the moment he releases his. This will get you out of the blast range. Stunn him with the TNT. Once he is down, constantly repeat to hit him with TNT as you progress through the level. This will prenvt him to get back on his feet - and thus attacking you - again. Every time he's hit, he will be knocked out appr. 30 seconds. Use this time to polarize the gates with the correct color, so they will pull the bomb meteorites... (yes, i know what you may think now :P)

Once the last portal is destroyed, the game is over and the achievement should be yours.
