    Sounds hard? Well, it would be, but it isn't.

    Nightmare mode is unlocked about halfway into the main story, it's the big skull on your map. In it, you have to beat every invasion level apart from the Candy Land ones without dying. Die, and you go back to the first one. 36 levels in total. This would be horribly difficult if it wasn't for the fact that you can cheese the everliving hell out of it. Simply pause the game and close the game app if you're about to die. When you load it up again, you can go back to Nightmare and you'll get to start from the level you were on. As long as you don't let yourself actually die, you can do this as many times as you need. Just be careful on levels with instakill obstacles (such as the red birds that chase you) or bottomless pits. And that's all there is to it. If you find any level tricky, you can always buy a gadget thing. I recommend the path thing, the heart thing and the checkpoint thing.

    CanadianWhizKidBut it's not tampering with the game files, is it? We are essentially creating a backup of our saved game... We're not altering or exploiting the game in any way.

    It really is the superior method and is working like a charm- already past the halfway mark. I couldn't do this any other way.

    AwooIt is, according to the TA solution guidelines. I don't make the rules. It's probably not that hard to figure out the general idea just from reading these comments though ;)

    Tanelorn82I had some problems with that solution, I generally do not have enough time to pause the game when I'm about to die.

    Imagine how easy it would be to have the path to the savefile... and 2 batch files to load or save your data easily.

    AwooYes, that is how you would do it. The save file is not terribly hard to find, it's the same as with any other Win8 game. It's not in the solution because it's not allowed laugh

    heinzfilmhey im stuck on level 28 cool loop because my character isnt running up the walls, has anyone else had this problem? am i missing something? any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Throni360Copying the save file is not tampering. It's the same as if you'd backup a save file from the 360 on an USB stick.
    Tampering with files is using a trainer or hex editor.

    AP 8T8This achievement is not difficult at all even without backing up or "cheesing". The fact one of the upgrades tells you exactly what to do on each level, grouped with the other power-ups makes the achievement as easy as you want it to be. I held off doing this because I was expecting another Jungle Run but there is no comparison. And how is restarting from a checkpoint before you die a cheese method, I call that logic.

    A Lazy SusanI was stuck on level 18 because my character couldn't glide. What I had to do was uninstall/reinstall and start a new game. After that, everything seemed to work perfectly. I'm pretty sure copying my save while the game was still open in task manager is what caused it. Just a heads up.

    witter56If anyone manages to do this without using the "tricks", wow...
    I almost spent 2 hours on this dumb thing.
