General tips:
Spam A
Forget Octo-lock
Go for smaller enemies first
Don't be afraid to take some hits, killing enemies is more important and theres a fair bit of health on the level.
Practise a lot

*It's worth pausing and checking your progress against this guide
Again huge thanks to Cormac who worked out the start (for some reason I really struggled with this bit).

Wave 1-1:
4 enemies (4 hits each) = 8%
5 enemies (4 hits each) = 18%
5 enemies (4 hits each) = 29%
4 enemies (4 hits each) = 37%
4 enemies (1 hit each) = 39%
4 enemies (1 hit each) = 42%
4 enemies (1 hit each) = 44%
8 enemies (1 hit each) = 51%

Health Orb

8 enemies (1 hit each) = 56%
8 enemies (1 hit each) = 61%
8 enemies (1 hit each) = 65%
8 enemies (1 hit each) = 70%

Euphoria Orb

8 enemies (1 hit each) = 75%
8 enemies (1 hit each) = 80%
2 enemies (24 hit each) = 100%

Make sure you blast the final two enemies, they explode if you get too close so it's easy to think you have them when you don't.

Wave 1-2:
2 worms kill them quick along side the 2 hit enemies from above = 17%
1 purple worm = 32%

*with these purple worms you have to blast each section with the purple gun then blast each section with A

Health orb and them more 2 hit enemies come from above = 45%

Look Up!!

Once you see the purple worm dispatch of the 2 hit enemies = 58%
Kill the purple worm = 73%

Look Down!!

More 2 hit enemies
Health Orb = 87%
Final round of 2 hit enemies = 100%

Mid way boss:
By far the hardest part due to the end, when you do hit the orb spam A as much as you can!!

Blast red box's as quick as they appear.
10% when the Euphoria Orb appears
23% for first boss orb appearance
More red box blasting and a Health orb = 37%
53% for the second appearance (don't worry too much about the bullets better to hurt him)
Continue blasting the box's and enemies within
84% third and final appearance

*At this point you have to hit him hard and fast after a very short while use your bombs to finish him (I used two to be sure)

YOU MUST WATCH THE PURFICATION COUNTER: it's very hard to see but it will quickly flash 100% at the end

Wave 1-3:
The doors

This is annoying, blast with A everything quickly.
The easiest way to much up is to miss a red box on the doors be quick with them. The purple worm before the 5th door can be nasty don't be afraid to use your final bomb here to make sure he's dispatched quickly.

Be quick
Spam A

Kill door 1 = 19%
Kill door 2 = 43%
Kill door 3 = 55%
Kill door 4 = 74%
Kill door 5 = 87%
Kill door 6 = 100%

Final Boss:
Not too bad, during the first section make sure you hit all enemies before the boss orbs and you should sail through.
When he changes tidy up the moving squares they should be fairly easy.
The boss will move, keep blasting with A.
Again blast the box's quickly and by the time you get to the purple planet.

Move onto the planet part 1 simply hit with purple gun the batter with A.
Blast the squares with A
Next are some big worms nice and easy A blasting
Finally you should enter planet part 2 with 90%
Blast away quickly with A for your final 10%

Even knowing all of the above this was very hard to unlock in one playthrough.
Learn each section, hope and pray.

Hope this guide helps, any questions or complaints just let me know.

Good luck!!
