    On the second level, called Treasure Trove Cove, you need to slay Nipper. This is a gaint crab in a seashell. You can find him by turning left from the starting point.

    You need too hit him three times with the Jump and X attack. You have the time when he is sitting still. The last time is a bit tricky because you have to be quick.

    After you slay Nipper you gain the achievement and can get the goodies in his shell.

    Knock out Nipper - 15G (Original Achievement)

    Difficulty: Very Easy

    Estimated Period of Time: Very Short

    To get to Nipper you need to enter the level "Treasure Trove Cove". From here you want to move forward to the ship and then go straight left and you'll see him. Nipper is a giant crab, living in a giant sea shell. After talking to him, he will attempt to attack you, he can only attack in one pattern and he cant move from where he is.

    What you want to do is wait for him to stop and rest for a second, then rush in and use an A, X move on him (where you jump in the air and peck at enemies). Right afterwards, back away to a safe distance and repeat two more times. Each time however he will increase the speed of his swipes. Dont be scared, just time it and rush in when he rests.
