Edit: the game was updated on 10/22/17 that changed and added several puzzles. I replayed the game so I could update the solution to reflect the current version of the game.

This solution will show you the input sequence needed to successfully get through each section in the game and all of the achievements that will unlock along the way (9/10). All you will need to do to complete this game after following this solution is start a new run of the game and play through several sections until you can die to a spike hazard.

My sequences are streamlined (many are optimal) and none require specific timing.

Note that this achievement description is misleading- not only can you not die, but you must successfully complete each section on the first try. A failed sequence, even if Bob doesn't die, will void the achievement. Just be careful and input the sequences exactly as I've shown in the screenshots below and you should have no issues.

Also, per Dr Tinus NL:
When you come to the parts where you have to smash blocks, it says 'A' when he does smash a block. Do NOT do this, it will void the achievement as well, since it will start over the whole section.

Important! Make sure that the small platform that brings Bob over to the next section is not adjacent to Bob's starting position when you begin the sequence to climb the structure. Otherwise Bob will walk onto the platform and fail to reach the objective, voiding the achievement.

Redlegend82Hab Problems with the first solution from Dr Casual on 3 Puzzles:

#13 Getting across the water on 2 leaves - Sometimes he got pushed on a far side of the leaves, so he would not move further.

#22 Floating on a double Platform and avoiding Spikes along - Even if he avoids the first 2 spikes, he will get hit by another on the way

#32 The Elevator-Platforms - Maybe its because the seuence in the video is over twice as long as shown here, but sometimes he just walks into the abyss while being in the wrong part of the sequence.

Just followed the pics above - no problemo

Sad thing i can only give 1 thumb up clap
Posted by Redlegend82 on 23 Aug 17 at 07:28
SDREW44Pictures Were 100% Spot On!!..

I Also Had troubles at the first Water part! He Would just roll off the edge! laugh
And Also At the 4 spike challenge twice He fell through the ground!

+1 From Me!! toast

lucas1987Glad there is a better guide. Will do this later thanks.

Vermigsso much better than the video, upvote from me
Posted by Vermigs on 28 Aug 17 at 18:45
Dr Tinus NLThis is ridicoulous, this game sucks major balls.

I'm stuck at the water section, got it on my first try, but the game fucked me over a little further. Right now i can't get past the water section, no matter how many times i try, it walks off the second moving platform. The moves that i entered are correct.
THIS IS STUPID.
Posted by Dr Tinus NL on 31 Aug 17 at 19:28
DoggyDog420Yup that water part isn't working. To hell with this. It ain't worth the 200G. Junk game
Posted by DoggyDog420 on 01 Sep 17 at 21:45
Dr Tinus NLPlease add this to your guide:

When you come to the parts where you have to smash blocks, it says 'A' when he does smash a block. Do NOT do this, it will void the achievement as well, since it will start over the whole section. Stupid game mechanic that does not work, because when you press A for the message, it also stops the section and you have to restart the whole game.
Posted by Dr Tinus NL on 02 Sep 17 at 08:38
Exe the HeroI've made it to the water part 6 times in a row and Bob walks off the platform each time. Supremely frustrating. Not worth my time.

+1 still, though. Seems like it works for others, plus the rest is perfect.
Posted by Exe the Hero on 02 Sep 17 at 21:39
vSullyThere were a few times when he walked off that second platform for me, too. I have no idea why he does that. The inputs are correct. There's no other way to do it. Well, you can shorten the inputs on that sequence and use careful timing to get a lower score, but what I've shown in the picture is the correct way get past that part. It's so odd.

lordwalkerup vote from me... I had no issues
Posted by lordwalker on 05 Sep 17 at 09:04
AbelusPrime@vSully and the others who have issues with Bob walking off platforms: I encountered this problem numerous times and found one solution that worked for me on the first go. Basically, Bob walks off when the "Hourglass + arrow" icon is used. If that is the case, then just double the command (use it twice in a row basically).

As a result, if Bob does not acknowledge the first command he will with the second. If he acknowledges the first that will not affect the sequence and all will go well. I did it this way and it worked flawlessly.

Happy hunting! headspin
Posted by AbelusPrime on 05 Sep 17 at 20:23
GuruThaGreat@AbelusPrime: I'm so glad you posted that. I was going crazy with Bob not heeding the command. But putting two of those commands worked the first time. Thanks for saving my sanity! laugh
Posted by GuruThaGreat on 06 Sep 17 at 17:47
vSullyThanks @AbusPrime- I edited the solution with your suggestion.
Posted by vSully on 06 Sep 17 at 18:47
AbelusPrime@GuruThaGreat @vSully - Glad to be of help (even in small parts). Happy hunting and Godspeed!
Posted by AbelusPrime on 06 Sep 17 at 21:41
Exe the HeroUgh, reinstalled the game to try this out, but he still walks right off. Fool me once...

HealttiThe pics + notes were extremely helpful. Two thumbs up.

Also big thanks @AbelusPrime and @Dr Tinus NL for the additions.smile

FigbenderI just did two perfect runs and no achievement... everything in the guide worked perfectly, no deaths or second attempts on any sections but no achievement.
Posted by Figbender on 08 Oct 17 at 16:13
JustAnotherJaySame here. Perfect run and no achievement.
Posted by JustAnotherJay on 14 Oct 17 at 21:11
AbelusPrimeFor the guys facing achievement unlocking problems, this may sound silly, but did you delete the save file before attempting this again? A friend encountered the same problem and we deleted the save and started anew. Everything worked when the run went perfectly the first time.
Posted by AbelusPrime on 21 Oct 17 at 21:05
SpilnerSo the image for https://screenshotscontent-t3001.xboxlive.com/xuid-2533....PNG shows 5 forwards when the pink thing is one ahead for me so i had to add an extra forward the second time (really my 7th after getting annoyed and fucking up) so as per the text for the next image i removed the initial forward but then i was short another forward as the pink thing was again an extra step forward. Not sure if its something I'm doing wrong but just starting for you
Image of where mine was http://images-eds.xboxlive.com/image?url=MSVnmBUo_fHjbLYMjAE...
Posted by Spilner on 28 Oct 17 at 14:09
vSullyI'll play through again when I get a chance to go to check, but the easiest thing to do whatever it's just a series of forward steps is either use way too many or make a loop containing only step forward.
Posted by vSully on 28 Oct 17 at 14:48
SpilnerIve done it now by removing the first forward as you put already but also adding one at the end of the sequence. Still a great guide
Posted by Spilner on 28 Oct 17 at 14:51
Gizmo2kCan someone confirm this for me, every time I play it, when Bob gets the jump boots right at the start, he does 2 hops, then jumps off the edge and dies. I've just played it through 2 with no deaths or restarts or save game 'cheat' at all, it doesn't unlock the achiemvement.
Posted by Gizmo2k on 30 Oct 17 at 14:20
vSullyThat's scripted and always occurs.
Posted by vSully on 30 Oct 17 at 14:33
Gizmo2kDon't know if that makes me happy or mad haha. One more attempt then I'm done. Thanks for replying.
Posted by Gizmo2k on 30 Oct 17 at 14:51
vSullyI've played through the game again and corrected the two images shown immediately after the "First Challenge" achievement. Everything should work perfectly.
Posted by vSully on 01 Nov 17 at 01:31
DingadillyI also have Bob jumping twice and then jumping off the edge upon collecting the legs. The response to being scripted and always occurring is fine. It's just that I don't remember it happening first time through and I'm wary of going through the whole perfect run attempt to discover that the first edge jump voided it. Can anyone offer additional clarity on this?
Posted by Dingadilly on 02 Nov 17 at 07:50
Gizmo2k100% can now confirm that it's fine. Check I unlocked it the other day, even with this jump off.
Posted by Gizmo2k on 02 Nov 17 at 07:57
lucas1987#16 with water and 2 moving platforms, I jumped to the 2nd one and barely landed on it and never jumped to the end. You must wait until they fully cross each other
Posted by lucas1987 on 03 Nov 17 at 12:37
lucas1987And then #19 after a wait I jumped to 2nd platform and it moved instantly and I fell on a spike lol. Idk how people get so lucky
Posted by lucas1987 on 03 Nov 17 at 12:40
vSullyI went and numbered the solutions to make it easier to know which are being referred to.

As for your issues: I don't know what to say. I replayed the game a few times recently (after the update) to update the solution and walkthrough with no problems.

16 doesn't have a jump, but maybe you don't mean an actual jump command and something just went wrong.

For 19, I had wondered in the past if it was possible for the moving platforms to cause an issue by moving before you step off, putting you out of position, but I never had that happen to me and I've been through it a dozen times or more.
Posted by vSully on 03 Nov 17 at 14:36
lucas1987Ya 16 when going from moving platform to moving platform it landed halfway off and I never actually reached the end, I ended up just staying on the 2nd one forever.

On 19 I just waited till the platform moved away so I would actually wait and move forward when it came back.

I just had bad luck but got it after restarting. Thanks for the guide. +1
Posted by lucas1987 on 03 Nov 17 at 14:51
ds9ds9ds9I did a perfect run with no errors four times and it didn't register. I had to take a break to preserve my sanity. Luckily it was patched while I set it aside and it unlocked after my first attempt.
Posted by ds9ds9ds9 on 03 Nov 17 at 20:25
Exe the HeroSo my comment above still lives on from pre-patch. Anyway, now there's a new part (further in - so much fun!) that just keeps messing up on me. Fool me... 12 or 13 times now... I officially call it quits on this one haha
Posted by Exe the Hero on 06 Nov 17 at 02:17
AntNice guide but done like 4+ runs and no pop :(
Posted by Ant#2827 on 17 Nov 17 at 08:37
I Ebon Hawk II had to play through the game three times before the perfect run achievement unlocked. I discovered that the reason it wasn't unlocking was because of the issue Dr Tinus NL mentioned. After you acquire the punch ability, if you press A while the robot is executing the punch, the sequence will be reset which voids the achievement. This happened to me twice. I wouldn't have known about it without reading the comments. The solution itself does not mention it. Would it be possible for this information to be added to the solution?
Posted by I Ebon Hawk I on 17 Nov 17 at 15:03
vSullyI somehow missed that comment and didn't realize it was an issue. I'll add a note.
Posted by vSully on 17 Nov 17 at 16:19
J ROLLER 1979@ EbonHawk
Do you mean your A button?
Posted by J ROLLER 1979 on 25 Nov 17 at 17:28
Gizmo2kThe problem EbonHawk mentions happens when you leave the cursor selection on the action button on the commands list, I got in the habit of moving it off that the second after I'd started the run, in case I hit A button by accident, then it didn't do anything.

Posted by Mince lfc on 02 Dec 17 at 13:59
AnxsighetyEvery single time I attempt this, he never lines up on moving platforms correctly, which causes me to completely restart as he won't move anymore. It is absolutely ridiculous. This game is a piece of trash.

Solution does work, my frustration was just with the stupid glitches haha. Thumbs up.

Posted by FWR Georgie on 22 Mar 18 at 22:10
Just did a perfect run. I triple checked the last inputs. And still didnt pop. 2nd time. What t he fuck
Posted on 30 Apr 18 at 20:07
FalensaranoThis is total BS with the moving platforms. You have to get lucky. If a platform moves as you get to it, Bob will just step off and die anyway.
Posted by Falensarano on 05 May 18 at 18:04
FalensaranoRight so I've figured a way of getting through image 19 with no issues. You should wait until the last moving platform moves out of Bob's path. As soon as it moves out, press go and Bob should make it across no problem.

The achievement unlocked for me on a first completion of this. The only other problem I can think of is image 13 at the end, there are four 'move forward' arrows when you only need three. I have no idea if this would invalidate the achievement though.

Posted by mmcqueenie90 on 28 May 18 at 20:39
Pedle Zelnip#16 depending on when you start may result in a infinite loop. Will post clip of this.

Edit: happened again on my next playthrough, recorded that as well. Once done with the game I'll upload both clips & post here.

Edit: example #1: https://youtu.be/5CGLQMBD0Y8

Example #2: https://youtu.be/uHxW1JraUzY
Posted by Pedle Zelnip on 09 Jan 19 at 06:58
Pedle Zelnip#37, might be worth having a note to say to *NOT* hit A when the dialog comes on screen saying the rock didn't see it coming happens. There's a note at the top of the solution, but it'd be nice to have that written above the picture for #37 so that when you get there you're aware of it.
Posted by Pedle Zelnip on 09 Jan 19 at 06:59
LegendgenesisI'm going to mention this because I tried it just to be sure, but if you finished the game you unlock real-time mode, which gives you direct control over Bob. This can make most of the areas in the game super easy and much faster than inputting commands. If you come to an area you don't feel comfortable going freestyle you can switch it back off real-time and go forward normally using vSully's screenshots. I can confirm that after screwing up on my first playthrough and running the second in real-time up until Alice, you still unlock the achievement.

Posted by SprinkyDink on 09 Mar 20 at 05:13
x1001x PuppysAlso had to play the game four times, but all of your comments combined help me finally get the achievement:

1. Every time there is a "forward wait" option, double up on it. Just don't do it on the one part that requires 15 moves or less.
2. Never press anything when Bob is in motion.
3. Get lucky, as I died on four floors with correct inputs. 19, 16, 19, and 26 (dumb fucker got stuck when all he had to do was move forward, wtf).

Thanks for the guide Sully, this one is going right in the dumpster.

SithVampiroGreat guide, very helpful! Im having trouble were you learn to jump. He keeps jumping forward off the ledge. Ideas?
Posted by SithVampiro on 16 Jul 20 at 01:53
The Cherished@SithVampiro I'm sure you figured it out, but for anyone else in the future him jumping off the ledge in the cutscene doesn't count as a death and won't void the achievement.
Posted by The Cherished on 29 Oct 20 at 15:30
MisterCollieMan@The Cherished appreciate the tip lots, just finished one run and did not get the achievement, I was worried to play through again if that cutscene was what did me in.
