Iron Man runs.
What is the latest/hardest achievement that you have? I know this is pointless discussion, but I'm just asking. :P

As of now I've completed six Iron Man runs, the hardest of which was probably Brimstone Boy. It wasn't that bad once I got it right but I had to practise quite a lot. Dr.Fetus Boy was challening as well but both The End achievements are made easier due to fact you only need to beat five levels instead of 20. At the moment I'm working on Maggot Boy which I'm hoping to get sometime soon. Whenever I've got enough time to focus.

I find a good way to approach no death achievements is to play through all the levels and see which ones I can always beat without dying, and which ones are hard. Then it's just practise, practise, practise. I focus on the more challenging levels and every now and then play through all the levels again to see how far I can get before I die. I find it's a good way to see if I've made any progress. Then I just decide which levels I need to complete first, usually the last 3-5 levels in a chapter.

With Brimstone Boy I at first did the last five levels but after dying on level 4-10 on two consecutive runs I decided to start from that levels instead. In Rapture I've decided to start from 5-15 The Flood but I might end up starting from 5-18 instead. They're both levels where there's little room for error so I better check them off the list right at the beginning.

I like Iron Man runs for the fact that they really force you to learn all the levels in a chapter. They also add to the replayability, and successfully completing a run gives me a rush of adrenaline and excitement that has only been matched by playing Super Hexagon. I think the Maggot Boy will be my last one, though. The remaining ones are way beyond my skills. Got any tips?

Well, I would try Maggot Boy next. Practice is what you need. Going hardest levels first is good stragedy.

No, I meant after Maggot Boy. As I said, I am doing Maggot Boy right now, and it's just a matter of time until I succeed. I doubt I'll be able to do anything after that but if you could say which one is the least difficult after Maggot Boy I might give it a try.

You need to choose between Missile Boy and Demon Boy next. Many people say that Missile Boy is harder than Demon Boy. For me, Missile Boy was easier.
