Introduction

Hello and welcome to my FAQ for DLC Quest and DLC Quest: Live Freemium or Die, the sequel to the first. Both are bought together through Steam, but the games can also be bought on the X360, although only separately.

DLC Quest is a fun but short platformer that satirises DLC in video games and how they can get out of hand at times. It also contains numerous references to other games and legitimately funny humour. It's just an all-around fun game and is also quite popular for speed runs (putting up a global speed run leaderboard does seem to encourage speed runs for some odd reason).

This FAQ gives a 100% complete walkthrough of both games and also lists all achievements (called 'awardments' in-game) and all DLC packs. Whenever the player unlocks a new box or gets an awardment, it's placed in a box within the guide so it can easily be found. You can also CTRL + F and search for any awardment or DLC Pack you want to easily find it. There's no real need for a basics section, as the game is exceptionally simple. The formatting of the guide will keep both games sections as separate as possible. The DLC Quest walkthrough and appendices will be listed, followed by the DLC Quest: Live Freemium or Die walkthrough and appendices.

So enjoy!

''Welcome to DLC Quest! You might notice some missing features, like animation, sound and moving to the left.

Nothing a little DLC can't solve! Talk to the shopkeep!'''


SPACE Okay

After the opening finishes, move right! Where else are you going to move?! That's right, you can't move left! Don't even bother trying to jump either. Once you reach the shopkeep and legitimately can't make any other moves, you'll have already collected enough coins along the way to buy the Movement Pack. But look, you can't afford anything else just yet. Aww man! Buy the pack and let's get moving! Heheheh.

First jump right, grabbing more coins. Keep heading right until you come upon some signs. Read them and grab the coins. You'll find that you need to find a sword to cut the bush down to get through. Oh well, for now head back left and jump up to the platform above you. Grab the coins, jump left again then once more and you'll find a new DLC Pack!

New DLC Pack Available

Armor For Your Horse Pack

Sweet. Drop down and talk to the shopkeep again. Now buy the Animation Pack, Audio Pack and Pause Menu Pack. Sweet, you now have all the basics that a game should have! And you get an awardment for that!

Okay, now head left from the vendor. Move past your horse and jump up the ledge. You'll see a man here. Talk to him and then start pressing 'X' to use the grindstone. Do it a few times and a new DLC Pack will become available. Screw doing it legitimately!

New DLC Pack Available

Time Is Money Pack

It costs 20 coins so you can't afford it just yet, so instead let's get us some more coins. Head left from the grindstone and collect the coins above the signs. Keep heading left and drop down to the ground. Move right and grab the coins there. You'll see some coins in a hole in the ground to your right. You'll see how to get to these later on. Head back and jump back up. You can talk to the shepherd here if you want. Once you're done, head further left. Jump over the area blocked by bushes and continue left along the ground. Keep going and you'll encounter someone (he feels familiar somehow...). Once you finish talking to him a new DLC Pack will unlock!

New DLC Pack Available

Psychological Warfare Pack

Head back right and jump back up onto the platform. Now jump to the plaform above you and to your left. From there, jump left again, jump up and then start jumping along the platforms to your right, always collecting coins as you go. You'll reach the far right end, but you'll be able to continue jumping up but now to your left. Do so and you'll come upon a platform with a heap of coins on it. Grab them all and you'll have done all you can there. Drop back down to the ground and head right until you reach the vendor. Now you can buy the Time Is Money Pack. Woot Woot!

Now that you have the new pack, head left, back to the grindstone. Talk to the man again and you'll once again be able to use it. Use it just a few times and the sword will become useable! Press 'X' to use it. First let's head left to where those bushes were stopping you from grabbing the coins. Cut them down by standing next to them and pressing 'X'. Once you're in, grab the coins and head all the way back past the vendor to where the other bush was blocking you from chasing after the bad guy. Cut it open and head through. A new DLC Pack will become available for doing so!

New DLC Pack Available

Double Jump Pack

You need 100 coins for this one unfortunately, so it's going to be a while! Head right in this new area. When you reach a sign that says 'Caution! Drop!", drop down the hole, collecting the coins as you go. Drop down to the bottom and grab the coins there. Now move away from the sign so that the message isn't showing. You see how there's not a dark outline on a small part of the wall above and to the left of the sign? That's a secret passage. Jump up and move into it. Head on through and you'll find a sheep and some coins. Awesome! You even get an awardment for it!

Awardment Get!

Hole In The Wall

Jump back out of the secret area and head right. You'll see a sign saying 'Dead End'. Instead, head right down it to the end. You'll see another secret area here. Move through it to the other side. Collect all the coins then head back out the way you came in. Now take the path leading up and out of the cave. Once you're out, explore the little area to the left of the exit. You'll see some coins. Grab them all then head back to where you left the cave. Now let's head right. You'll see a man there. Feel free to talk to him, although there's no real point at the moment. Keep heading right until you see a bunch of trees in a tunnel. You won't be able to move through them but you can instead examine them. Do so and you'll unlock a new DLC Pack.

New DLC Pack Available

Map Pack

Now let's head back to the vendor seeing as there's nothing else to do here for now. Speak with him and you'll find that you can buy the Psychological Warfare Pack. Buy it and head left until you reach the place where you encountered that guy. Speak with him and this time he'll agree to let you move past. Awesome. Now let's head left and see what we can do.

Grab the coins when you see them, then enter the cave. You'll see four paths. The north-east one you came from, a south-east one, a south-west one and a north-west one. It doesn't really matter the order you take them in, so let's head south-east first. Collect all the coins as you go. When you reach the man at the end, talk to him if you want. Once you have, take note of the secret passage above and to the right of him. Jump in and head along it. Once you reach a wall at the end, you'll see that secret hole from before above you. Jump up and you'll be able to grab the coins. Now head back to where you had the four paths you can take. This time head south-west.

Collect the coins in the area. You'll see a DLC Pack above you that you can't yet reach. Don't worry, once you can Double Jump you'll be able to get it. You should also see a secret passage along the ground in the south-east part of this area. Move through it and grab the coins in the alcove. Once you have everything, head back to where you can choose the four paths. Let's take the last one, this time leading north-west.

Grab the coins as you go. Once you can see the sheep to your north-east, you should be able to see a secret passage along the ground nearby. Head into it and once you come out the other side, jump up and grab the coins there. Head back out of the secret passage, jump up and grab the coins up top. Once you have them all, it's time to head back to the vendor!

Now it's time to buy the Double Jump Pack off of him. Cools. Buy it. You'll even receive an awardment for doing so.

Awardment Get!

Big Spender

It's time to make good use of your new double jump. Let's head back left first to that cave. Go inside and take the south-west entrance again. Now use your double jump (by pressing 'Z' to jump and then 'Z' again to jump whilst in mid-air) to jump up to the DLC Pack. Grab it!

New DLC Pack Available

Pet Pack

Awesome. Now head out of the cave. At the entrance you should see a ledge above you that you couldn't see before. Well now you can reach it. Double jump up. Keep doing so until you reach the top. Now you should see that you can head left or right. Let's go left first. Talk to the old man when you reach him for a laugh, then jump onto the ledge above. Grab the coin above the sign and then jump east. Jump east again, over to where the sheep is. See the three rocks above and to your right, along the edge of the wall? They're being used to cover up a secret area. Jump in and grab the coins there (be sure you got them all; you need to jump up and along to do so), then drop back down and jump back left. Jump to the platform to your far left and get the last of the coins there. Now head back to where you chose to explore the left area. Now let's explore the right one!

Grab the coins along the ground and double jump up to the platform above you. Grab the coins there and the DLC Pack too!

New DLC Pack Available

Top Hat Pack

Top hats?! F*ck yea! Drop back to the ground and head right to where some bushes are blocking your way. Cut them down and head through. Grab the coins here then head all the way back to the DLC vendor. Speak with him and buy your new Pet Pack and Top Hat Pack. How swell, sir. Okay, let's head east back through the bit that was blocked by the bush. See the platform above you right at the start of the area? Now you can double jump up to it. Do it. Grab the coins and jump up and to your left. Grab the coins above you here to, then double jump up and right onto a small platform with a tree on it. Now double jump left to the platform. Then do a large double jump up and right, to where a sheep is. Grab the coins there then drop down onto a platform to your right (move right a few times the width of your character).

From that platform, jump up and right and grab the coins in mid-air, double jumping to make sure you get them all. From there, jump right again collecting the coins as you go. Now to stop things getting confusing and to make sure you get everything, head back to where you first double jumped up onto the platform.

Jump up and right from here, collecting coins as you move right. Double jump right, from platform to platform as you go. Make sure you grab the coins between platforms as you do. Keep heading right and grabbing the coins close to the ground. Once you reach the right wall, jump up and to your left. From there, jump left and grab the coins between the two platforms as you do it. Now jump back right, then right again. Collect the coins on this platform and jump up and left to the top one. You'll see you can jump up onto a ledge that kind of creates a separate area. Do so.

You'll see a sheep above you. Head right, then jump up onto the lip then once more onto the actual area above. You'll notice there's a secret area that you can enter by moving right whilst on the lip, but we don't want to go there just yet. Once you're in the upper area, move left, grab the coins, then move back to the lip. Now move right through the secret passage. You'll drop down. When you do, move left and you'll come out where a DLC Pack is. Grab it.

New DLC Pack Available

Sexy Outfits Pack

Drop down the hole next to you and you'll be done in this area. Head back to the DLC vendor because you can buy the Map Pack and Sexy Outfits Pack! Do so and head right, all the way to where you first examined those trees. Now you can move through to the area on the other side!

Area Two

Now that you're in the next area, talk to the DLC vendor at the start to find out that you can buy stuff off him. This will be helpful for the future. Anyway, more coins to collect. Head right, grabbing the coins as you do. You'll see a path leading down underground and another leading up. Let's take the one leading down first. As you start to go down you'll see a secret passage in the ceiling of the cave. Don't worry about that one just yet because you'll explore it later. Instead, take notice of the secret passage directly below it. Head into that one and head left. You'll find an area with heaps of coins. Grab them all then head back out.

Now continue right, grabbing coins, until you're out of the cave. Once you are, head right and continue right until you reach the troll. Press 'X' to try and cut him with your sword and he'll speak with you. Also, more DLC!

New DLC Pack Available

Gun Pack

Cool. Head back left. Before re-entering the cave, jump up onto the ledge above it. Move up to the left wall and take note that there's another secret passage here. Move into it and head left until you find the DLC Pack hidden at the end. Grab it.

New DLC Pack Available

The Zombie Pack

For finding the last hidden DLC Pack, you also get an awardment!

Awardment Get!

Catch Them All

Okay, now let's head back through the cave. Once you come out the other side, take the path leading up this time. Stay along the ground grabbing the coins. When you reach the end, jump and grab all the coins and you'll fall down into a secret hole. Follow it left grabbing all the coins inside and you'll eventually drop out of it into the cave below. Oh, that's the secret passage from before! Okay, head back out of the cave and up into the area again. Instead of staying to the ground jump up to the platform above. Grab the coins and head right. When you see the two platforms above you, jump up and take the one leading right first. Move along each 'tunnel' collecting all the coins, but make sure you leave the 'tunnel' just under the sheep at the top for last. Once you've collected all the coins in the area, move along the one that you left for last. There's a secret passage at the end, but a bush that you can't see is blocking it. Cut the bush down and head into the passage. Drop down and try and stay to the middle to grab all the coins. If you miss any, just keep trying until you get them all.

Once you have them all, move back to where you can jump up to the two platforms above you. This time take the left path. Grab the coins there and take the path along the ground first. You'll see a secret passage at the end with a trail of coins going through it. Cut the bush blocking it and drop into it, making sure you grab all of the coins as you drop. You'll come out in an area with coins. Grab them all then jump to the platform to your right. Head right, back to where you jump up to the two platforms above. Once again take the left path.

Instead of taking the path along the ground, take the next one above it. Once you reach the drop at the end, drop to the lip just opposite the coins. From there jump to the coins, making use of the double jump to reach them. Once you have them, jump back. If you fall back down, just come back around and try again. Once you have them and you're back where you were, it's time to take the next path above you, the one leading into the caves. Jump up and into the caves,

Follow the caves around, grabbing coins. When you reach the end, try to drop down between all the coins to grab them all. Once you have go back and check that you got them all and if not, keep trying until you do. Once you have them, you're done for the area! And you should even receive the awardment for collecting every coin!

If you don't get it, it means you haven't found all the coins. Methodically explore all of the areas in the game until you find the last coins (you can use this FAQ to guide you through where all the coins should be to try and find any you may have missed). It's an annoying and time-consuming process, but you should find them eventually. Once you have, head back to the DLC vendor at the start of Area Two. Speak with him and buy all the DLC left, the Gun Pack, Armor For Your Horse Pack and The Zombie Pack. You can now go around and kill zombies for some fun, but there's no real point to as far as game completion goes. And don't worry, they can't hurt you. Once you've done that, try and get back to Area One. You'll find that you need more DLC to get back.

New DLC Pack Available

Night Map Pack

Oh well, buy the Night Map Pack from the vendor and head back to Area One. Talk to the guy with sunglasses at the start of Area One to receive your gun. Yay! This replaces your sword and you receive an awardment!

Awardment Get!

I've Got A Ruddy Gun!

You can press 'X' to use it and you can also use it to kill NPCs, sheep and the troll. You need to kill all NPCs and sheep for an awardment, but we'll address that in the Getting the 'Anything For An Awardment' Awardment section. Skip ahead to that now if you want to get it out of the way, otherwise head back to Area Two; we have a troll to kill!

Head to where the troll is and shoot him to kill him. Head on past him and along the tunnel. The game will move you through and the credits will roll! Wut? I'm confused! Oh well, you get an awardment for it and some DLC becomes available!

New DLC Pack Available

Finish The Fight Pack

Awardment Get!

You Did It! Kind Of.

Once the credits finish, continue the game! Nope, it's not actually over! Woot! You'll appear near the vendor. Talk to him and buy the Finish The Fight Pack. Cools! Now you can actually finish the game! Oh and for buying the final DLC Pack, you receive another awardment!

Awardment Get!

Consumerism

Now to actually finish the game! Head back to where you killed the troll and head into the tunnel. You'll come out the other side and the final scene will roll. Wut just happened? Anyway, you get yet another awardment for that one!

Awardment Get!

Got The Girl

Sweet, now all that's left is to get the Anything For An Awardment awardment! Read below on how to do it! Just continue the game once more and you'll be able to grab it!

Getting the 'Anything For An Awardment' Awardment

Okay, if you just finished the game properly, you'll now be in Area Two, near the vendor. I'll list how to reach all NPCs and Sheep in both areas. First we'll start in Area Two seeing as we're already here.

Oh and don't worry about killing DLC vendors if you haven't yet bought all DLC. You can still buy off them when they're dead by speaking with their gravestones.

NPCs and Sheep in Area Two

Shoot the vendor (proper name is 'Dime'). Head right. When you reach the two paths, one leading underground and one leading up, take the one leading up (there aren't any sheep or NPCs along the other path). Move up and jump up to the platform above. Head right and when you come upon the place where you can jump up to the two platforms above you, continue right. You'll see a sheep there. Shoot it and head back to where you can choose the two paths. Take the right one and head up to the top of the tunnels. Shoot the sheep there. That's it for Area Two head back to Area One.

NPCs and Sheep in Area One

First kill the guy with sunglasses (his name is 'Smith'). From there, head left. Don't drop into the entrance to the cave, but jump over and keep heading left. When you see the other entrance to the cave, drop into that one. Remember the secret above and to the left of the sign? Head back into there. There's a sheep to kill inside. Once you're done, double jump to get back out of the cave.

To the left of the cave entrance is a sheep stuck between bushes. Blow up a bush and kill it. Continue left. When you see the ledge above you, double jump up to it. From there, jump to the platform above and to your left. Jump up and to your right, then repeat it. Now jump to your left. From there, make a large jump up and to your right and you'll find a sheep on the platform there. Kill it too. Drop down to the platform below (if you land on the small platform, drop down again). Now head right.

Jump to the platform to your right, then drop between it and the next platform to find a sheep. Shoot it, then double jump up to the platform above you to your right. Jump right and follow the. Jump onto the last platform before the end of the area and continue jumping up platforms to the top. You should see a sheep above you. Move left, then jump up to the next platform and head right. Shoot the sheep there. That's it for this part of Area One. Drop all the way back to the ground and head left until you reach the vendor. Shoot him (real name is 'Nickel') and keep heading left. Once you reach the Blacksmith, the guy next to the grindstone, shoot him! Keep heading left, over to the Shepherd. Shoot him too! Now drop down into the area to your right. There's a sheep here. Shoot it.

Jump back out to where the Shepherd was and keep going right. Hop onto the platform near him. Move to the left side and jump to the platform above you. Jump left then jump right along all of the platforms. When it feels like you've reached the right-most one, do as large a double jump as possible right and you'll land on a platform with a sheep on it. Shoot it. Drop down to the ground and head back to where you killed the Shepherd. Now continue going left. You'll come upon the Random. Shoot him too. Now enter the cave to his left.

Take the south-east path and shoot the guy at the end before the secret path. Now head back to the four paths and take the north-west one. You'll find a sheep here. Shoot it and leave the cave. Now jump up onto the ledge above the cave and climb the side of the hill. Once you reach the top, take the path leading right first. Head along the ground to the very end and you'll find a sheep. Shoot it. Only three more to go! Head back and take the left path.

Head left along the ground until you come upon the Old Man. Shoot him too! Now jump onto the ledge above and to your right. From there, jump right and kill the sheep. One more! Jump back left, then double jump up and left, onto the ledge there. See that secret passage in the ceiling there. Well now we can make use of it. Double jump into it and move right. You should land on a ledge. From there, mvoe right into the area with the sheep. Shoot it and you'll receive the final awardment! Yay!

If you want to get your time for 100%-ing the game. Go and see the final cut scene once again, let the credits roll and you'll get your time! Otherwise, all done! You are gaming god!

SPACE Well isn't that nice

Woot, new game! First, move right and jump over the ditch, collecting the three coins as you do. When you reach the other side, you'll be stopped by Roy. After he says a few things and feels like saving the villagers, he'll try to do so. After he fails terribly and you can continue on, start heading right. Obviously don't touch the spikes, jumping over them and collecting coins as you do. Head right, grab three more coins and drop down off the ledge. At the bottom you'll see the side of a hill with many steps and a 'hidden' DLC pack under it. To get it, drop to the bottom of the hill and try and move through the mountain towards it. You'll notice that you can! Any walls, ceilings or floors that lack their expected 'edge' can be moved through like this. Grab the DLC pack and head back out into the open.

New DLC Pack Available

Particles Pack

Now head left, hop onto the ledge and use it to jump up to the platform to your right. Jump up the platforms until you're on the top one, then jump to the left and land on the ledge there. Head down the steps to find a number of graves of the villagers. Oh so sad! After you're done mourning and have conducted a proper funeral for all of them (no, really, it's part of the game, I SWEAR!), grab the coins in the area. You can check their graves for amusing information too. Once you're done, drop down the hole on the very left part of the area. A load screen will appear (THAT FREAKING LOAD SCREEN). Once it's done, you'll have made a new DLC Pack available, woot woot! And you're in a new area too!

Day One Patch Pack

Now hover around the weird blue pedestal, and a new DLC pack will become available!

Checkpoint Pack

Man, I wish regular games had so much awesome DLC! Anyway, to your left you'll find vines blocking your path, so head right. Drop down and talk to Nickel who'll end up being your source of all things DLC! You should have 20 coins at the moment, enough to buy everything. Do so, then head back to where the checkpoint was. Move through it and you'll see a green tick; that means your progress has been recorded! As of yet, you can't continue heading east as a guard is blocking your way, telling you to speak with the mayor first.

Now, head back east and start jumping up the ledges above the DLC vendor. Collect the coins on the three ledges, then jump onto the platform to your west. Jump up it, grab the coins and speak with Cliff, the town historian. Once you're done, head to the platform to the east, jump up the steps and find Lamp, the town comedian. Speak with him and continue doing it until he says nothing but 'I Am Error'. While you're at it, see how many of the gaming references that he made you actually understood (I think there are eight in total. Getting him to say 'I Am Error' isn't helpful just yet, but it'll come in handy later. Note that you if you exit and re-enter the game you're going to need to get him to say 'I Am Error' again for later on, but I'll let you know when it's actually needed.

Now grab the coins hear him and continue heading west and up. Jump up to the platforms to the left, collect the coins, then over to the platform on the right. Drop down to the platform below and you'll find a Wise Old Man. Talk to him, then continue past him to the mayor. He'll send you on a quest to retrieve a pack 'in a cave to the east of here'.

Backtrack back to the vendor and head east. Like magic you can now move past the guard. Head along the only path you can possible take. Once you start entering the cave you should notice a wall you can move through taking you west. Move through it and follow the path to the top of a platform where a new hidden DLC pack lies. Grab it!

Incredibly Important Pack

Look, it's the package the mayor wanted! Head back to him using the same route I described earlier. Speak with him and he'll tell you to purchase it from the shopkeeper. If you've collected all of the coins so far and bought the previous DLC packs, you should now have 35 coins, enough to purchase the new DLC. Do so! Once you have it, head back to the mayor and speak with him once more. After the importance of the incredibly important pack is revealed (ZOMG SO IMPORTANT), you'll be given a sword which can be used to cut vines! Yayayayay! You'll even get an awardment for it,

Awardment Get!

Everyone Gets This One!

Double yayayayay! Now head back to the DLC vendor and head west. Save at the checkpoint and then cut down the vines using 'X'. Head on through, into the Cave Zone!

Cave Zone

Jump up and grab the coins. You can't head along the path to your right just yet, but it's still useful to jump up there. Do so, read the sign and a new DLC pack will become available!

New DLC Pack Available

Wall Jump Pack

Unfortunately you won't have the money for it just yet, but you'll get it soon enough. Now move back and drop down to your left. There's a hidden passage in the wall next to you with vines that you can't see blocking your path. Cut the vines up as you go through and collect all the coins inside. Move back out and then jump off the very edge of the ledge to your right onto the platform. Drop down to your right and collect the coins. If you miss it it's no big deal, just head right until you reach the coins stopping you from jumping over and grabbing the coins. You'll see a secret passage below them. Move through it and around the back end to grab the coins. Once you have them, jump out and head back west and down. You'll find a checkpoint. When you do, move through it to activate it.

Head left, jumping over the spikes on the ground and making sure you're not jumping into the spikes on the ceiling. Eventually you'll reach a chasm with spikes waiting at the bottom. Drop onto the lower part of the ledge on the right side and then jump from the very edge of it over to the other side. Collect all the coins there, fall into the spikes and die to quickly respawn at the checkpoint. Now head right. Drop into the hole with coins in it and spikes at the end. Collect the coins and jump back out. Continue right. Jump from platform to platform making sure you don't fall into the spikes and collecting all coins as you do.

As you continue right you should see vines below you. Don't go and cut them up just yet. Instead, keep heading right and collect the four coins in that area, then jump over and collect the last four coins in a small alcove near them. Now drop back to the vines and cut through. Head right. Be very careful ahead, there's a false floor with spikes underneath. If you move over it you'll fall in and die. Instead, jump over them, making sure you jump at the very edge of the real floor or you won't make it. Hop up the steps to the next checkpoint and move through it to activate.

Head left from the checkpoint and collect the coins in the upper area. You should see a hidden DLC Pack nearby. You need to move through the hidden entrance to its right to reach it. Do so!

New DLC Pack Available

Health Bar Pack

Cool, you won't die instantly later on! Now move back up to the area where you grabbed those coins above you. To your right you should see another secret passage. Move through it to find a number of coins. At the end you'll drop to the ground below. Now cut the vines down next to the checkpoint and continue on. See the coins above you that you can't reach? Yep, we'll need the Wall Jump Pack for that too. Cut the next lot of vines and continue. First drop to the area below. Grab the coins and head right along the tunnelt. You'll come upon a man in black. Talk to him to find out he's Groove. He's a miner. Examine the pickaxe rack to find out you find it morally wrong to take it and use it to mine. Oh well, there'll be more to do later. Head back up to where you cut the vines.

Now head up and right. Be careful of another false floor with spikes under it and jump onto the platform above it. Grab the coins, then jump up and left to the next platform. Grab more coins then finally jump up to the platform with the DLC Pack. Snatch it up!

New DLC Pack Available

Parallax Pack

Cool. Cool, cool, cool. Head right, jumping up the steps and grabbing more coins. You'll find vines at the top. Chop them up and move through. The drop is to large that you won't be able to jump back up so make sure you collect everything first or you'll have to circle right back around. Once you drop down, grab the coins and follow the path around. You'll find some vines. Cut them up and you're out of the cave and back in the Village Zone! Head back to the DLC vendor and grab the three available packs, the Wall Jump Pack, Health Bar Pack and Parallax Pack. How awesome!

Let's test out that pretty sick Wall Jump Pack. It's a little broken, but that's what makes it fun! Head right from the vendor. When you see two platforms above you with coins on them, jump up against them and as you're 'pushing into them' by trying to move into them, press jump and you'll jump off and up. Use it to jump from the side of the platform onto it. Collect the coins then jump to the next platform and collect the coins there. Once you have them, it's time to head back into the Cave Zone for round two! Let's head left first, back past the vendor and into the caves. Don't forget to save at the checkpoint!

Once you're in you'll see a sign above you. Instead of moving to it just yet, you'll want to grab the coins you missed in the Cave Zone last time. Head left fromm the sign. You see the area above you that you couldn't reach before? Well now you can! Wall jump up the wall and collect the coins there. They've actually designed it that you need to first wall jump off the left side, then once off the right side or you can't reach the top. Once you've grabbed the coins, drop down the huge drop until you land.

Once you have landed, drop down right and head left first. Grab the checkpoint, then head back right, hopping over the small gap that leads to spikes. From there, jump from one platform to the next, dodging each chasm of spkies. Now drop down and head right, jumping over the fake floor. If you get killed at any time you'll spawn at a convenient location! Continue on until you see the next checkpoint. Grab it. Continue right.

In the next little alcove area you'll see three coins above a spike. Use your wall jump to jump off the left wall and move through, grabbing the coins and dodging the spikes. Repeat if you miss any. Once you have them you're all done in the Cave Zone. Continue right and follow the path around until you're out of the cave. Sweet!

Now that you're out of the cave, head left, past the vendor until you're back at the cave entrances. See the cave leading up, with the sign at the entrance to it? That's the one you want to go to next. Move up to the sign, then head right to the wall. Jump up the right side of it, slipping down as needed to collect any coins you missed. Once you reach the top you'll find the Dark Zone! Ooh!

Dark Zone

Grab the checkpoint, then head left from it, along the ground. Collect all the coins as you go. You'll reach a tunnel with a checkpoint partway through. Grab it and continue. You'll enter Allan Please Add Zone Name! Awwwwww yea!

Allan Please Add Zone Name

Here you'll find a lonesome sign here. Once you've read it and been thoroughly amused, head back to the Dark Zone Continued!

Dark Zone Continued

Grab the original checkpoint (it's more convenient if you die), then hop up onto the platform next to you and grab the coins. Jump from platform to platform repeating. Once you jump over the spikes, jump over to the ledge. Hop up the ledges, collect the coins above and head back right. You'll see a line of coins forming an arrow pointing right. You need to wall jump to collect them. Do so and land on the platform above. Jump left, not landing on the spikes, then wall jump up to the next platform.

Instead of continuing to jump right, first jump up and to your left onto that little lip there. There is a small hidden alcove there. Move into it and you'll find a new DLC Pack! Cool! Note that this only happens after you get the comedian to say 'I am error'. If you exited out of the game between getting him to say it and trying to get the DLC Pack, you'll have to go and do it again then come back here to collect the pack.

New DLC Pack Available

Death of Comedy Pack

Once you have the DLC, drop down from the lip onto the platform below and continue jumping right and collecting coins. You'll see a big jump you need to make over some spikes. Now, instead of making the jump now, drop down between the platform you're on and the spikes. You'll land near some DLC. Pick it up!

New DLC Pack Available

Canadian Dialog Pack

You're going to need to drop to the ground and come back up to where you were, next to the big spikes. Now, just make sure you hold in the jump button and you should be fine to jump over them. Jump back and forth until you have all the coins, then continue right until it appears you've reached a dead end against a wall. Now, jump up and try and move right, into the wall. You should find a hidden passage. Sweet, let's go! Everything will become bright again and you'll be in the Avacado Hill Zone! Wut? Huh? You'll see!

Avacado Hill Zone Revisited

Head out of the tunnel and drop down. Head right over the ditch, past the gravestone and over the spikes. Drop down when you reach the end. Annnnnnnnnnnd you're back at the start of the game! Trippy! You can explore if you want. There is one thing to do here though. Head to the very right side and you'll see a shaft leading up. Wall jump up it until you reach the top then jump onto the ledge there (just keep wall jumping up if you hit your head a few times). There's a DLC Pack here, nice!

New DLC Pack Available

DLC NPC Pack

Once you have it, continue to the very left side of the area and you'll see a drop. Drop down and you'll find yourself back in the Village Zone. Go and talk to the DLC vendor (he's to your right) and buy the DLC NPC Pack, as well as the Canadian Dialog Pack and Death of Comedy Pack. Now that you have them, head back to the comedian. Examine him and you'll get an awardment.

Awardment Get!

I Get That Reference!

You'll even make a gaming reference yourself. Now continue going up platforms as if you're heading to see the mayor again. On the far left side opposite the mayor is where you'll find a new NPC with a massive scar through his eye. Talk to him! Do it again and again until you unlock the awardment!

Awardment Get!

Story Is Important

That's really all, head back to the vendor. It's time for the Outskirts Zone!

Outskirts Zone

From the vendor, head right. When you near the cave entrances, don't take the bottom one leading right, take the one above it leading right. You'll see a sign at the entrance to it.

Move past the sign and jump up the wall as the diagram etched into the wall shows. Now jump up and out of the cave by jumping from side to side, collecting the coins as you do. If you miss any, just drop down and try again. Practise is always good. Once you're out, collect the coins in the area, then head right. You'll eventually enter the Outskirts Zone where you'll find the Shepherd. Oh my god! Anyway, after you speak to him (for quite an entertaining plot twist), you'll find yourself surrounded by hordes of zombie sheep, oh noes! Don't even bother trying to kill them all (they respawn anyway), just move right as quickly as possibly and grab the hidden DLC pack, then you can just let yourself die and respawn back up at the checkpoint that you went through before.

New DLC Pack Available

Harmless Plants Pack

Head back to the vendor! We must fight the evil! Buy the pack and you'll see a cool animation happen afterwards. Now head back to the zombie sheep. Watch yourself foil the shepherd's plans. Laugh in an evil manner. Then laugh legitimately at the reference to another game made by the shepherd (I seriously hope you got that one... shame on you otherwise!). After a few little things happen the credits will begin rolling!

Wait wut?! What are you doing DLC vendor!? Once you get the error message press the Spacebar and wait. Do it again when it doesn't work. Then wait for an available slot. Once you have, you'll be back in the world... f*cking finally...

Round Two

You're back in Avacado Hill Zone! And a new DLC Pack just unlocked!

New DLC Pack Available

Cut Content Pack

Head back through to the Village Zone ... man, why do I suddenly want soda? Now head right to the vendor. Wait.... that isn't the vendor! Oh well, buy the DLC pack from the computer-thing-guy. Sweet, a whole new world! Remember Allan Please Add Zone Name? Well it's time to go there again!

Allan Please Add Zone Name Continued

Once you've reached it by heading through the Dark Zone it's time to explore. Grab the coins near the start then jump up the platform and talk to the man there. Now jump to the platform to your right. Wall jump up to the next one. Collect the coins to your left, then jump to the platform to your left. Jump between the spikes, then jump to the next two platforms and you'll be at the wall. Now look for the secret passage at your level in the wall to your left. Move through and grab the coins inside. You'll see a second secret passage in the top left corner. Jump up and into it, then grab the coins to your left. Once you have them, come back out and drop down from the platform to the ground below. To your left there'll be more coins. Grab them then head right. Don't drop into the hole with spikes in it just yet. Jump over it and collect the coins on the other side of. Once you have, it's time to drop in. Make sure you stay to the right side of the hole so you grab all of the coins as you drop.

Once you land, first head right, into the secret passage. Collect all the coins in the secret room then head back. Now head left. Wall jump to grab the first coins above you, then grab the ones below you. Head right and when you see more above you, stand on the slightly raised platform and jump to the wall above you and to your left jump off it and to your right to get into the upper area. Collect the coins on both sides and drop down. Jump over the spike then wall jump up to the checkpoint. Grab it! All of the spikes to your left! This part is actually a little tricky. Wall jump up the wall above you until you're at the top. You'll see coins there. Judge it so you jump over and collect all coins at the same time. If you don't, drop into the spikes retry until you have them all.

Once you have the coins and you're on the other side, just wall jump up it until you reach the top. You'll find some more coins there. From there head to the right end to see a secret passage. Use your sword to cut the vines away as you move through until you come out the other side. This is the top part of the area that you missed earlier. Jump right from platform to platform collecting all coins. Once you reach the right side, drop down and grab the coins as you do. That's it! Head back to the Village Zone. From there try and head to the Outskirts Zone once again.

You'll find it's locked, with a hilarious message. It'll unlock more DLC though!

Name Change Pack

Head back to the digital store and purchase the pack. You'll enter your amazing, awesome and new name and you'll be able to continue. Head back up to the Outskirts Zone. Try that lock again. Sweeeet! Head on through! Don't forget to jump over those spikes (I haven't forgotten like three times now, I swear!). Grab the checkpoint and head on! Past the zombie sheep you'll see some rocks. Examine them and you'll now be able to steal a pickaxe from that guy in the caves! Head back out of zone and enter the cave leading right that's below the one you just came out of. Follow it and wall jump when it's required. Drop down until you reach the spikes. Jump over them, continue left and drop down to the level below. Head right, through the tunnel. The man with the pickaxe is at the end. Talk to him. You'll find he wants to get something off a guy in Allan Please Add Zone Name. Head back there and talk to the only guy there.

ZOMG, this guy! *rages* Well, from there, jump to the platform to your right. Wall jump up to the next one, then wall jump up to the one above that. Now jump left until you reach the Box of Various Supplies (which includes a freaking pickaxe! Why don't I just freaking take it!?) and head back to the guy. Talk to him and you'll receive the Humble Indie Bindle! Hahahahahah, I forgive that guy! Head back to pickaxe guy and you'll get the pickaxe. Whooo! Also, an awardment!

Awardment Get!

Who's a Good Player?

Naww, now I feel special! Drop down and use 'X' to break the rocks underneath you. Head through and grab the coins. Also, break the rocks to your left to unrock, uh, unlock a path. Keep breaking rocks until you're through. Wow, this feels oddly like a different game all of a sudden...

Cave Zone - New Area

Grab the checkpoint on the other side and collect the coins nearby. Head left and you'll see a massive pit of spikes. Jump right from platform to platform over the spikes collecting the coins. When you some see coins hovering over the pit and a wall with two spikes on top to their right, jump through the coins, then wall jump off of the wall to their right, jumping up and wall jumping off the wall above, then jumping right, onto the platform there (man, I hope that made sense...). Now jump to the platform to your right. See the three coins down the side of it? Yea, I think you're meant to do a pretty advanced maneuvre here, but instead just drop down and collect all the coins then let yourself die by falling into the spikes (it's easier than trying to save yourself). You'll respawn at the checkpoint, then just jump back to where you were.

From there, jump right, grab the coins and land on the small platform. Jump right once more. We'll get to the platform to our right in a bit, so for now let's wall jump off of the wall above you. Collect all the coins as you do by holding in the jump button. Jump up to your right (you need to wall jump to get to the platform above). You should see a secret passage in the cave wall. Head into it and follow it around. You'll pop out below where you were. Jump to the platform near the exit of the passage and then jump back left one platform. You're back where you were. Wall jump again, then head back around to where you entered the passage.

From there, jump up, wall jump off the right wall and use it to jump onto the platform to your left. From there jump left onto the small platform. There's a platform below it, trust me. Just make sure you jump a little left and you'll fall down onto it. Now just keep jumping left and collecting coins until you reach the next DLC Pack. Whoo!

New DLC Pack Available

Increased HP Pack

From there drop left and keep moving left as you drop to avoid some spikes. You should grab some coins, miss some others but land on a small lip with a spike on its side. Now just wall jump up the left wall grabbing the coins you missed. Once you're high enough to, wall jump to the right then wall jump up that wall until you're back up where you were. Now drop into the hole to your right. Grab the four coins there and drop down. You'll be back at the start and will have grabbed all coins in the area! Now it's time to head back to the Outskirts Zone again. You don't need to worry about grabbing the DLC Pack from the Digital Store in the Village Zone; you'll be able to do it in a bit anyway. Once you're in the zone, head back to where those rocks were and now use your pickaxe to break through. You'll be in Pop Zone Brought To You Buy Pop! Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.
