Why the grindy achievements?
Double & Triple Perfect achievements - shouldn't the game automatically award you a lower difficulty perfect for completing a higher difficult one? If a player can get a Perfect on Hard, what's the point of requiring them to do it on Normal and Easy as well?

And it looks like the game doesn't even care about the Gold from retro zones - is that it?

The gold from retro zones is needed to get one of the rewards which are needed for one of the achievements.. I think.

But it doesnt even tell you if you missed any gold in the retro zones!

I've been getting rewards for retro zones, but I think that's just for completing them not gold related. Could be wrong though.

You can see if you have all the retro zone golds by hovering over the level in the menu. If you've completed it without all golds then you'll have a games cartridge. If you have all golds in the retro zone, the cartridge will have a gold star on it as well.

I don't quite understand why you're complaining about the grindy achievements, they should be interesting little nods, but the focus should be on enjoying the gameplay and progression, not working towards an achievement.

I have the games cartridge as soon as I "unlock" the retro zone by entering it from a normal level, even if I never complete it.

Because grindy achievements are not interesting little nods, they're just grindy achievements.

I think you get a star just for completing and the gold cartridge just for finding, don't think there's any proof that you have all golds, but looking through the rewards I already have all the ones for gold so unless there's rewards for getting all golds which I don't remember, maybe I was wrong about needing those golds, shrug.

I'm struggling to find the motivation to finish one playthrough, 120 levels or so and finding all alternate routes and treasures and stuff, finding it a bit tiresome by the start of the 4th world

Definitely too grindy.

I agree.I have 23/26 achivements and i played like for eleven hours but if i want to make the rest of them, then i have to play for 30 hours ( exactly the same levels 3x times ) which is dumb. But overall the game itself is great.

A lot of games have grindy achievements, not much that can be done really :/

Playing the game through on Easy just because that was the last thing I had to do... I actually fell asleep at my desk.

It's better than trying to get all the achievements in the first BIT.TRIP RUNNER. Those are so hard to get 100% on that I don't even want to try. Runner 2's achievements are downright easy in comparison. Time-consuming, but not painful.

Yeah, but you can aspire to get Runner 1 achievements because they are skill based, and if you do manage to get them, you'll feel like you really achieved something.

Runner 2, on the other hand, will make you feel like you wasted a whole bunch of hours for a couple icons.

Same here. I felt better about the ones I got for Runner 1, even if I didn't get them all.

Absolutely agree with that. Getting the hard achievements in Runner 2 is just a waste of time and has nothing to do with fun or skill anymore. I wish they would patch it.

Yes this should be the case!
