    There are a lot of video guides out there for New 'n' Hasty; this is the one I preferred:



    If you open the video on YouTube, he has quick links in the description to go to specific levels you might need.

    Q & A

    Q: Can I replay levels to get a better time?
    A: Yes, you can replay levels. You must save ALL the Mudokens in that level again AND complete the level, you cannot just simply get a better time, or quit out after getting the Mudoken you missed.

    Q: Can this achievement be done on easy difficulty?
    Yes!

    Q: I replayed levels after beating the game and my time is now under 3 hours, but the achievement didn't unlock, help!
    A: Once you replay levels and are under 3 hours, you MUST replay the final level, "The Boardroom" again for the achievement to unlock. You might notice, even after saving all the Mudokens, it still says only 97% saved - this is why, because of the 6 Mudokens at the end of The Boardroom.

    Q: Why does my save file only say 97% after I save them all?
    A: See above, Mudokens on The Boardroom must be saved every time.

    Q: Is this achievement hard?
    Once you familiarize yourself with the game, and especially with the help of a guide, it's really not that bad. Good luck!

    Helpful Tips (that aren't really explained in the game)

    Quiksave and Quikload often so you don't have to replay entire checkpoints. Quiksave by pressing cn_back, Quikload by HOLDING cn_back.

    When controlling a Slig, pressing cn_down will make all Mudokens duck so you can shoot over them, also helpful if other Sligs are shooting at you.

    Please let me know if you have any questions or if there are any ways I can improve this guide.

    Although they are otherwise helpful, both existing solutions give the same BAD ADVICE which I am here to correct.

    REJECt444 says, "Make manual saves often to avoid replaying parts."

    KBop a doo says, "Quiksave and Quikload often so you don't have to replay entire checkpoints."

    Wrong! Reloading quicksaves, or even restarting checkpoints, does NOT reset the clock to its state when that save or checkpoint was originally made. I have confirmed this definitively. So if you repeatedly reload a quicksave or checkpoint to try to get a section done perfectly, the game will count all of the time spent on repeated attempts. It's likely this achievement has such a high ratio because of this misunderstanding of the game clock's relation to the save system.

    The only thing that truly resets the clock is Chapter Reload or Chapter Select.

    You can use Quicksave sparingly for very tough sections, but it's only helpful
    if not too much time passes between when you make the save and when you load it, and if reloading is kept to a minimum. If you end up repeatedly reloading a Quicksave, realize that you never stopped the clock and all that time counts cumulatively.

    Chapter Select is your friend, just as long as you rescue every Mudokon in a chapter every time you replay and complete it. And to repeat KBop a doo, you must replay The Boardroom in order to register your final time and pop the achievement. The Boardroom takes about two minutes but its time is not reflected in your save slot's overall time, so you want to get your overall time down to at least 2:57 before replaying The Boardroom.

    The achievement will pop during the final cutscene, after you Shrykull twice and pull the final switch.
