Snake Pass Walkthrough

3. Bol-Dor's Realm

Paradise Path

Alright, we are now making our way to the beginning of the game. Within the first four levels of the game, we should be able to gain a total of 14 achievements. We are going to start out with the first level Paradise Path.

After starting the level, we get a cutscene of a keystone going missing, and our Hummingbird friend Doodle is there to wake us up from a nap to go and restore it. Once you have full control of Noodle, pick up the first checkpoint, and then head towards the sign with the skull and crossbones. Climb over the ledge and fall to your death. Doing so will net us our first Achievement:

Can't You Read? in Snake Pass
Secret Achievement (Secret)
  • Unlocked by 9,157 tracked gamers (53% - TA Ratio = 1.37) 17,368

This will also put us at our first progress marker for the SSS Achievement (1/4).

Seeing as we fell off the edge one time, we might as well do so another 9 times, as this will net us our second achievement of the game:

Punished Snake in Snake Pass
Secret Achievement (Secret)
  • Unlocked by 3,665 tracked gamers (21% - TA Ratio = 2.17) 17,368

Now, while we are at it, we might as well so some of the other simple achievements while learning the basic controls of the game. First, press up on the D-Pad 4 times and watch as Noodle makes a face. Do the same for the left, right, and down on the D-Pad. After making all 16 faces, we will gain our third achievement:

Expressionism in Snake Pass
Secret Achievement (Secret)
  • Unlocked by 2,764 tracked gamers (16% - TA Ratio = 2.50) 17,368

We are now going to finally move on from the starting area and have Doodle teach us about how to maintain top slither speed. In order to do this, we are going to want to slither like a snake. If you go straight forward the whole time, you won’t make much progress. Now, while we are in this area, before we need to climb the wall to continue on, we will want to make several loops around and slither around the area for more than 10 seconds. When you reach an end, you can take a full U-Turn and go back in the other direction and this will keep your speed and not slow you down any. Once when you have maintained top speed for 10 seconds, we will have unlocked our next achievement:

Rocket Snake in Snake Pass
Maintain Top Slither Speed For 10 Seconds
  • Unlocked by 8,911 tracked gamers (51% - TA Ratio = 1.39) 17,368

We can now continue on with the rest of the level, collect the missing Keystone and place it into the monument, and complete the first level and another achievement:

Gated Progress in Snake Pass
The First Gate Is Still Broken
  • Unlocked by 16,638 tracked gamers (96% - TA Ratio = 1.02) 17,368

  • Wisp 1 - From the First Checkpoint (start of level) move forward a small amount
  • Wisp 2 - Right after Wisp 1

  • Coin 4 - Right under the ledge Wisp 6 is on
  • Coin 5 - From Wisp 20, go a little further to the right, it is at the end of a pole challenge

Before we move on, we are going to replay the first level two more times at the most, one time if you rock it out perfectly. Once you gain full control of Noodle, press Y to have Doodle carry the tail, and we are going to avoid the checkpoint this time round. Continue on until you are coming to the next checkpoint and pass along the left side, not hitting it, and we will have a small cutscene again. Once you have control again, press the Y button again to have Doodle pick up your tail once again and then slither on to get the Keystone. DO NOT move until the Keystone is in the inventory and we can have Doodle lift our tail once again and then head to monument. Let Doodle put the Keystone on the Monument and wait for him to lift your tail for the final time, and then move onto the platform to complete the level. If done right, we would have collected the following two achievements:

Danger Is My Middle Name in Snake Pass
Activate A Gate Without Activating Any Checkpoints
  • Unlocked by 3,078 tracked gamers (18% - TA Ratio = 2.37) 17,368

Courtyard Clamber

Now that we can finally move on from the first level, we make our way on and begin working on the next few achievements. This level introduces us to learning more details about wrapping around the poles and using them to our advantage. Before we do anything within the level though, we can work on another achievement. This one requires us to use Doodle’s Tail Lift ability 100 times. You could either boost it early on, or get it through natural progression (you will be doing this a lot throughout so grinding isn't necessary). The second achievement, we want to get to the highest point we can and leap off and land on the ground. If you want, you can do it the same way I did and try to just have Noodle’s head nick the edge of the lower wall as we fall to our death and we gained our next achievement:

Terminal Velocity in Snake Pass
Fall From A Great Height
  • Unlocked by 7,861 tracked gamers (45% - TA Ratio = 1.48) 17,368

Now, we move onto the main portion of the level. We are going to be working on two achievements here: one for completing a level that uses 3 Keystones and the other for placing each of the keystones into the gate without picking up another one. Progress through the main level as normal until we pick up the first of the three keystones. I would go after the green one first, and then after that we will head to the gate and place it there. After that, you can go after either the red or yellow keystone. After you collect one, return to the gate and let Doodle place it and make your way to grab the third and final keystone and let it get placed onto the gate. After completing the level, we should have gained the following two achievements:

Place Three Keystones Into The Gate

If we have been following the video guide for Gate Crasher, we should be at 14% for collectibles.

Gatekeeper Gardens

We are now going to be on our way to the third level of the game and work towards two more achievements. The first achievement we can get is for collecting two keystones without touching the ground. This one is a bit tricky, so make your way through the level as normal and then head to the right and wrap yourself up well enough so when you pick up the first keystone you won’t fall down and your tail doesn’t touch the ground. After that, have Doodle hold your tail and move across to the platform and get ready to make your way to the yellow Keystone. Be sure to wrap yourself very well at the start of the bamboo and then make your way over and up to reach the yellow keystone. If you have done it correctly, you should have unlocked our first achievement:

Floor Is Molten Rock in Snake Pass
Collect Two Keystones In Gatekeeper Gardens Without Touching The Floor
  • Unlocked by 866 tracked gamers (5% - TA Ratio = 4.47) 17,368
