Since nobody wrote a guide yet, I will make the start and go for it.NOTE First of all: To UNLOCK the C-SIDES, you need to have ALL the HEARTS and then beating B-SIDES. After completing ALL 8 B-SIDE chapters, you will unlock the C-SIDES!
Actually there is not much to say. I found the B-SIDES harder in a way than the C-SIDES.
The good thing at the C-SIDES is, that they are very short.
They are 3 ROOMS LONG so basically really SHORT.
The HARDEST CHAPTER of all was definitely the end of CHAPTER 7. Also the end of chapter 5 and 8 was a pain in the a$$ to me.
I hardly recommend to start with chapter 7. Because if you won’t be able to beat chapter 7, you can save a lot of time by attempting this achievement. (It’s just not that you complete Chapter 1-6 and then give up at Chapter 7).

Here’s a video of all the C-SIDES:
I RECOMMEND TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE VIDEO. SO THAT YOU KNOW HOW THE RUN SHOULD WORK AND BE LIKE.
It doesn’t hurt to take a look first before attempting to get the achievement.CHAPTER 1 - Forsaken City
Not much to say. It’s not really that challenging and you shouldn’t have too much problem with it. I had 72 deaths after completing Chapter 1.CHAPTER 2 - Old Site
Shouldn’t be too challenging either. The only part which sucks a little bit was the last part in the last room. In the Video I posted, it’s at the mark: 01:47. I had 114 deaths.CHAPTER 3 - Celestial Resort
Surprisingly it’s the easiest one in my oppinion. It’s really very short and I completed the last room on my 3rd attempt. If it was luck or not, I can’t tell - but even the guy in the video had a death count of 90 (then 112). I had 24 deaths.CHAPTER 4 - Golden Ridge
Also surprisingly a very easy one compared to the other C-SIDE Chapters. My death count: 117CHAPTER 5 - Mirror Temple
I was really struggling with that one. Room 1 and 2 are actually very easy. Then suddenly I was struggling with the last room. You really need to have a perfect run and a perfect timing to manage the last room. It was really hard to me so I wish you good luck. In the video, it’s at the mark: 05:01 - 05:25. I had 651 deaths (!)CHAPTER 6 - Reflection
I wouldn’t say it’s easy, but it’s too hard neither. What this chapter makes it that easy is, that there are 4 save points.
The last room is in the video at 06:22
Thank god there are 2 save points in the last room. 1 by entering the room and the second one at 06:44. If there wouldn’t be a checkpoint, it would be a pain and very time consuming. My death count: 147CHAPTER 7 - The Summit
That one is very, very hard. This is where the challenge and pain begins. Room 1 and 2 are actually very easy compared to the last room what’s gonna await you.
For any reason I recommend to start with this chapter. Because if you won’t beat this chapter, how are you supposed to get the achievement then. Or at least you can save a lot of time if you’d give up by attempting this achievement.
The last room took me 2-3 hrs to finally get through the hell. (Last roome starts at 07:54 in the video). My deaths: 401JUST NEVER GIVE UP! I found a GOOD MOTIVATION VIDEO:
The guy had more than 1300 attempts and it took him more than 3 hrs for sure! It shows again that you should never give up and keep trying it. The happiness hormone what you get after completing it is indescribably and worth it.CHAPTER 8 - Core
The last chapter was always the hardest one till now. (If it was in normal mode or B-SIDE). Luckily it won’t be so painfully as much as Chapter 7. But again you’ll learn a new ability - The “broad jump”. I found Chapter 8 very time consuming. Because the last room is very, very long (starts at 10:52 in the video).
For any reason I couldn’t manage that broad jump at 10:44 as in the video showed. It took me several trials to finally get through it. But till you get to that spot takes a lot of time because of its lenght.
The feeling after obtaining this achievement is totally worth it. It kinda feels like you had a big fight against someone and then you finally won.OVERALL:
This achievement is really challening but at the same time it’s not. It’s just time consuming and sometimes you just need some luck to get through a part.
What the C-SIDE makes that hard is, you need almost a perfect run with always perfect timing. The last room of each chapter is very long. That what it makes so time consuming. Chapter 5, 7 and 8 makes the achievement that hard to get. But still I had almost less death than on my B-SIDE runs. If you are able to manage Chapter 7 or 5, you shouldn’t have any problems getting this achievement.
You can literally feel the game. I was nervous, angry and then happy. My heart throbbed so fast - I had a pulse above 120. I was sweating and could have break one of my controllers. And after all when you complete a chapter - that feeling you get! It’s unbelievable! It feels like no one can stop you and you’re god in a way. Like you’re the best player... but still it was just a chapter. Well, at least I felt like that, haha!
The game by itself is definitely a masterpiece. Even IGN gave a 10 out of 10 on their review.
The last time I enjoyed a game that much was a long time ago. The art, the soundtrack, the gameplay and its beauty is totally worth it.
