Parlour Magician - 5G (Original Achievement)

Difficulty: 2/10

To get this Achievement, you must unlock a Charm.


In each act (except Act 5 of each Play.) you will be given 3 Challenges. The challenges will request different things and upon completing all 3 you will receive a Charm at the results screen.

You do NOT have to complete all 3 challenges during the same Act, as you are allowed to complete any amount, and they replay the level as many times as needed to get the remainder. You can even leave the Act as soon as you complete a challenge and it will still count and award the charm if you had all 3 challenges completed.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Flurry Attack: After leveling up a bit you will receive the Flurry Attack. When an enemy attacks you and you see "" above their heads, simply press the B button to grab them and then rapidly press the X button to beat them down until you eventually launch them (this only works on small enemies). After launching your first enemy, another small enemy will more than likely be waiting with the "" icon above their heads, repeat the process until they are all defeated. If a large enemy is on screen you can use the Flurry Attack on a small enemy, but before finishing it, press the B button and aim at a big enemy to throw the small enemy at them. This will knock the big enemy down and put a "" icon above their head, allowing us to preform a Flurry Attack on them without any hassle. You can also finish by throwing a big enemy at another big enemy to down him for a Flurry Attack as well.

Perfect Scenes: To get a Perfect Scene you must defeat all enemies on screen without breaking your combo or taking damage. The Flurry Attack (Grab an enemy with the B button, then rapidly press the X button) usually works wonders for this and it should be done with the first few groups of enemies. (You will have to wait until later to unlock this via level up.)

Ace Return: Throughout the game, you will encounter various enemies that will throw/fire projectiles across the screen at you. When an enemy throws/fires a projectile at you, simply press the B button just before it reaches you to smack it back at the attacker. If done correctly, you will see "Ace Return" appear on the left side of the screen

Human Cannonball: To get a Human Cannonball, you must grab en enemy with the B button, and press the B button again to throw them and hit two or more other enemies.

Cannonball Combo: To get a Cannonball Combo, you have to perform three consecutive Human Cannonballs without your combo breaking.

Heads-Up: What you want to do, is wait until later in the game when you've leveled up a bit to unlock the Flurry Attack. Then wait for an enemy to attack so you see the "" above their head. From here press the B button to grab them and then rapidly press the X button to beat them until you launch them. As they are launched, if you were close enough to the right or left side wall, the enemy will bounce off it and back towards you. From here you can spam the B button to try and grab them out of the air and then press the B button to throw them back. If done correctly, you will see "Heads Up" on the left side of the screen.

Stunning Piledriver: What you want to do, is simply wait until an enemy attacks to see the "" above their heads, then grab them with the B button and press the Y button to preform a Piledriver. When using this, you must use the enemy you are holding to piledrive into two or more enemies, if done correctly you will see "Stunning Piledriver" on the left side of the screen.

Stage Crasher: When an enemy attacks you, you will see "" appear above their heads meaning you can Parry them. Pressing the B button lets you can grab hold of them, and then press the B button again to throw them. If you see a crate/box or pottery, maybe even a bench, then you can aim the left stick at the object while throwing an enemy to throw them into it and break it. You will see "Stage Crasher" appear on the left side of the screen if done correctly.

Leader: A Leader is a big enemy with a red flag sticking out of his back. Don't worry about your combo, simply defeat all other enemies on screen and then take out the leader.

Time Challenge: Some missions will require you to get to a set location within a set time limit. You will see a clock on the bottom of the screen indicating said time limit. Using Flurry Attacks on all enemies works best here to clear the stage as fast as possible.

Savior: The most difficult challenge in my opinion are any challenges that require you to keep ONE of "insert name here" alive during an attack. These "insert name here" will usually run around the stage trying to get away from their attackers are are fairly difficult and annoying to protect. The best method I can suggest is to focus on one specific "Insert name here" and grab, then piledrive any enemies that come close. It may take a while to defeat them all but its a safer route.
