Conditions to unlock the achievement

Basically you have to complete the game on Normal Difficulty or higher.
You need to accumulate enough gold through each level to unlock all forms of the bosses you fight at the end of each level.
Also you need to 'No Miss' the whole game, in other words, do not die once.

It also seems that the game had a late patch forcing default settings.
I got to the end in a previous run reaching all conditions, but gave myself 5 starting bombs, yet it didn't unlock.
So its now actually harder than it once was ...

My video of my successful run unlocking this achievement is below.
Hopefully it can be used as a guide for tactics and ideas to defeat the bosses.

I used Crueltear, her anchor is the best for speed, can make all the difference.

WornOutSmilesSorry, forgot to mention that by clearing your System Cache, you can delete the update and get the achievement using 5 starting bombs if you refuse the update when you next start up the game.

velho lobodomarI just did a perfect run and the only thing i changed from default settings was turning off the tutorial and changing the background, no achievement. Looks like you cant change a single setting from the defaults in order to unlock this, to anyone still concerned...

vSully@Inferno: I'm replying years later, but clearly unlock percentages for X360 games are fubar because of how easy it was to cheat achievements via whatever methods people use.

Take this, which is one of the hardest achievements on the 360:
Deathsmiles (JP)Secret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in Deathsmiles (JP) worth 778 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

5.72% unlocks... right.
