    To unlock endless mode you must first kill five bosses

    EDIT
    Fixed with patch 1.0.3

    Now you can normally do it

    /EDIT

    Solution for older versions than 1.0.3

    start a game in endless mode.

    start it over and over again till you get the first level the one with the yellowish street blocks

    finish it

    if you die cancel the revive and hit AGAIN! (nothing else only this)

    you get a new lvl. if it is not lvl one die cancel revive hit again! you can do this as much as you like.

    when you have already 999 meters you have to actually beat the boss at the end of the level then die in the next stage for it to pop.

    VixyNyanMAX Charge Attack (with Cooldown Mastery added) will make Endless mode a joke. Every half second or less after using the attack, it will be available again, so keep pressing that Charge Attack button and spam it against all enemies and bosses. It works wonders~ :3

    neeker75I'm playing endless mode, and it's just a normal level with 200m plus a boss at the end. Weird or is it supposed to be this way?

    So I die before I get to the 6th boss at over 1000m, finishing the final challenge and unlocking the challenge achievement, but for this I have to actually beat 6 bosses in endless? I feel quite angry about this

    "Now you can normally do it" doesn't sound like a helpful solution for people still playing this game.

    This isn't as simple as advancing levels in the campaign and even beating the last boss from there requires strategy. In endless mode however, you not only will have to face the bosses again but also the regular enemies will get much more aggressive the more you progress, to the point of having some of them "magically" performing a mix of jump and teleportation up and down the screen and other crazy stuff.

    Surpassing 999 meters will require you to advance about 5 levels in a row, but you can be set to repeat any of the 5 possible stages in the process. If you are unlucky, that means facing the two worse bosses twice: the icy rabbit and the boss from the volcano level.

    Once you get the hang of it though, it's a very possible thing to do. Here's what I recommend.

    Have a Gunslinger (fox faced ranged monster) fully evolved and with the following skills:
    - Slow Motion (maxed out), Cooldown Mastery (maxed out) and Firework. This last one doesn't have to be maxed. The purpose of Firework isn't to solely cause damage, but also to buy time while the other skills reset. If you are smart when using your skills, specificaly Slow Motion and Firework, you can keep switching between them and that is key during moments of heavy adversity (hard boss fights or damaging large groups of enemies).

    Brief and needed explanation about how the skill Fireworks works: it took me a while to figure this out since there was no ingame explanation for it. I tapped on the skill, there was an animation and then the character would launch a missile... which would go away without hitting no one, even if the enemy was right in front of me. No explosion, no fireworks. The thing is - and I accidentaly learned it latter - you have to shoot the missile to make it blow, but the best way to do that is to start shooting BEFORE he releases the projectile, after you tap to activate the skill. In fact, it's best to keep on jumping and shooting after activating the skill, that way the missile will go down when released and will blow against the enemies.

    Other skills like Double Jump, Triple Jump, Atk Speed Mastery, Charge Attack and Resistance are all welcome too in order to improve your char.

    The skills that I thing that the player should avoid spending points on are: Slam (for the Gunslinger, since he is a ranged char), Combo Mastery, Combo Extention (specially if you already unlocked the 999 combo challenge/achievement), Combo Frenzy and Bomb.

    If you already have the equipment that I recomment for the Gotta complete 'em all achievement, that is, the Gold Pistol and the "Transformer" set (helm, back and boots), then you'll have the highest attack stat possible for this character.

    As a pet, I had a lvl. 50 Magical Penguin with me when working on this achievement since his eventual healings are of great help.

    With all of the above, now you can "normally do it". Things should get harder from level 3 onwards. Keep on jumping and shooting whenever there are flying enemies coming from the right side of the screen to stop them from shooting or setting traps on the ground. Use the Slow Motion-Firework trick to defeat the bosses. Use those skills whenever things get out of control with the regular enemies as well if you need a breather.

    Each level will add up to the total distance. Only the first one will have 180 meters. After passing 999 meters you should get a notification and the achievement will probably pop once you are back to the main screen, like usually happens.

    If this solution helps you in any way, leave a comment and a thumbs up to let me know. Thanks!

    togethawiistandSorry, at first I do not. But, what happens if you die in the third level, for instance? Does it get reset to 70 meters or more?
    In any case, you should focus on moving through all 5 levels necessary to unlock this achievement, even if you think that it's being reset.
    If you die before at least 5 levels there's no reason for the achievement to pop.
    Best of luck naoya0831!

    naoya0831Thanks for your response.
    If I die in the third level at 410 meters , it will show 50 meters(410-360=50)
    and if I die at 500 meters , it will show 140 meters(500-360=140)

    I tried again.This time i died at the 6th stage boss.
    Below the screen the meter bar showed 1080 meters.
    But in the result screen , it became 180 meters(1080-900=180)
    I don't know what happened. Maybe I will reinstall after getting other achievements.

    togethawiistandNo problem.
    Now, that's weird.
    When I played it I had the latest version of the game, I think. I think it's a good thing to try reinstalling it. Best of luck to you and don't give up (might want to do this achievement last)! Happy new year (in 3 days ;P)!!!
