Curator? I’m pretty sure :P

Indeed, it is curator. Though the collabs are going away, so that icon won’t stay for much longer.

Out of curiosity:
Those 54 people with a score of 0 in “World 1 Switches” (and probably also those 14 with scores between 1 and 5) are all cheaters?
Or was there some kind of glitch in a previous version of the game that allowed beating World 1 without even switching once? Or was there some API bug?

Anyone know what the total # of coins is for level 6 trophy. I keep clearing it with all the coins I see but no trophy…

 
Flag Post

There are 248 coins in World 6.

How would you rate the difficulty of this impossible badge compared to other impossible badges? And/or compared to other platformer impossible badges?

 
Flag Post

I’d say it’s on the easier side, not the easiest though. The platfomer imps are this, Focus (harder), Run 2 (the same), ToG (a bit harder), MoneySeize (harder), MeatBoy mappack (HARDER), MeatBoy (easier), DinoRun (harder), and Fold (depends). This is pretty much an endurance badge, since you just gotta do well for ~1 minute at a time and then it saves your progress, so that makes it easier than other badges, specially since, from the others that are the same style, it’s not too long.

Focus? Harder? Are you kidding? o_o I might be able to see that maybe if there weren’t a nodeath req.

 
Flag Post

I don’t actually remember too much from Focus, but I think it was harder. On this one there are some pretty safe nodeath routes, and, as I said, each world takes 1-2 minutes. Well, but since I sucked at Focus (I ragequitted at the last or second last Original screen) maybe it’s not that harder.

I’d rate them (the imp badges), from easiest to hardest:
Meat Boy
ToG
Focus
Run 2
Vertigo
Fold
Meat Boy MP
MoneySeize
…and Dino Run’s not so much hard as long. And not really a platformer.

 
Flag Post

That seems about right. Except I’d put Fold between Meat Boy and ToG.

 
Flag Post

Fold’s easy if you use the walkthroughs. But I’m assuming no walkthroughs. Which makes putting MoneySeize ahead of Meat Boy MP a no-brainer instead of a head-scratcher.

 
Flag Post

I meant that because Fold, like Tower of Greed, is largely memorisation. And is MoneySeize is made easier with a walkthrough? :o

 
Flag Post

Yeah, I’d say MoneySeize’s secret levels are a lot harder to locate than Meat Boy’s band-aids.

I can’t even complete the first world w/o death (yet) so kudos for you xD

I’m a bit late to the discussion, but it should be noted that the “other trophy” (Victory Trophy) can be gotten. I have all ten trophies right now.

It simply requires more than 100 medals (i.e., 101 medals). For possible medals, we have 56 from non-advanced.

In advanced mode, for switches, we only can’t get World 3 Gold or Developer (I calculate the minimum to be 50 or 51, and Gold requires 45). Cirpacha previously said World 4 and World 7 were impossible, which was incorrect. Minimum for World 4 is 22 (although 23 is actually sane), and the Developer is at 25. I have this one (at 24 switches). Minimum for World 7 is about 27 (which is insane), and Developer is at 40. I don’t have this one yet, because two of the levels are horrible so I haven’t routed them. I only have Gold (at exactly 60 due to one of the horrible stupid levels that shall remain nameless). So this makes 26 achievable, with 25 having been gotten by somebody.

For time, I have not beaten Cirpacha in any medals. I suspect World 7 Gold is possible, but whatever. So we lose 7 medals here (World 3 G,D; World 4 D; World 5 G,D; World 7 G,D). So 21 more medals makes 56+26+21=103 (!) possible medals, with 102 having been achieved by somebody.

So, Jindo, congrats, the trophy can be gotten. It is very difficult, and if anything that should be the impossible badge.

Impossible doesn’t actually mean impossible. What you describe is probably a difficulty beyond impossible. It would be like asking for no deaths on all worlds or something.
