    *There was an update with a new EASY MODE and it is confirmed to give achievements* credit to clobxclark

    This achievement is earned by finishing the fourth challenge. This challenge is a little tricky, you must break open all the crystals and kill the monsters by using the drill and sword. After you kill all the monsters the middle part of it will move around and shoot. You must collect the bow and arrow and kill it. Here is a video with tips for completing this challenge.

    FishOnXBLFinally got it! After 3+ hours of trying to complete this (not as easy as it looks), I finally got the achievement. There's never been a more satisfying time to be told that Chris Taylor would be proud of you laugh Thanks for the guide.

    *This solution was written with the original, "Insane" difficulty in mind. This should also translate to Easy Mode - in which you can also earn the achievements.*

    I've come up with a solution that takes advantage of the creature's attack patterns to keep you safe from all his shots. The basics of the battle are:

    - Grab the drill.
    - Drill a head until the crystal is gone.
    - Return to the items and grab the sword.
    - Hit the uncovered head three times and the head dies.

    The hard part is to avoid the attacks - and it seems mostly random, but I assure you there's a definite pattern you can use to make his attacking pretty easy to deal with.

    Basically before the "bullet-hell" bit, take up position on the top or bottom of the level half way between the creature and the items. From there, when it starts shooting, move left and then towards the items and you should be able to dodge all of the shots. Using this method I survived for five minutes without killing a single head (just to see if it was as safe as I thought).

    You can also start from the centre next to the items and work your way up/down and forward.

    When the 8 heads are destroyed, grab the bow and sit in the bottom-right corner taking shots at him. You should only have to dodge two or three energy bolts this way and depending on your accuracy you'll be done in less than a minute after killing the final head.

    For those wanting more details, watch this video I put together (it's definitely easier to show than explain):

    Happy hunting!

    This Achievement can be done pretty easily using a tricky method that I discoverd.

    Everytime the Enemy is using his circling attack you can Smash your pause button to stop and continue the round. This gives you the oppertunity to doge the Bullets in slow-motion, which makes this very easy. I've included the Video where u can see how to do it.
    I am using the method a couple seconds after one Minute.

    Good luck

    Eventhough you won't Need it toast

    SoH AnarchyDodging the items in the first part was easy for me, but I made it to the boss so many times just to die to him. For the life of me I could not dodge and shoot at the same time. With this method I killed him on the first try, thank you so much!
