In level 3, "To Infinity and Beyond!", you get this for doing the first half of the level without dying.

1. The first part of the mission is a rail shooter through an icy trench. You want to avoid the outcroppings while shooting balls of rock. In general you can't actually collide with the walls of the trench unless they're showing a glowing green grid. There are three separate "dodge" sections, and you might get through the first time without dying, but if not, it's all about memorizing the patterns. In the left-right sections be sure to use the A button while moving side to side to get over quickly. If you're low on health at the end, don't worry -- you'll get it all back when the next section starts.

2. You'll need to run forward across an ice field as meteors hit the surface and cause it to break up. It's really hard to die here, so just make sure you jump when the crevasses open up. There'll be two cutscenes where you may not be sure if you died or not because the screen washes out after a meteor strike -- don't worry about those. Use your glide (A+hold A) to make sure you float over longer gaps.

3. Finally there'll be a series of platform jumping sections followed by short "arena" areas where you fight Zurg's robots. If a gap looks too long to double jump + hover over, take a moment to look around. You'll usually need to create new platforms when this happens, which will happen in one of two ways: a) if the platform is glowing green, then double jump + smash (A + A + Y) to break it into pieces. b) you might see a crystal on a platform in the distance. Laser it (RT) until it explodes, causing pieces to float outwards. Patience and examination are key here if you're playing the first time.

When you open the air spouts make sure you stomp the floating pieces of ice into the ground to plug up any secondary holes and maximize the air flow.

In the last platforming section there are pieces that move around in patterns that you'll need to cross. This may be the only frustrating part for you. Just wait until the piece you want is nearby and jump over -- don't try to rush it.

If you lose all your health, or you fall off a platform into space, then you won't get the achievement. Save & quit back out to the game board and start the level over again.

The achievement will unlock as soon as you fall through the entrance hole into Zurg's base.
