What constitutes "beating" the game?

#1 Posted by rjayb89 (7724 posts) -

Do I have to complete each and every level, including the secret levels and "skull" levels, or just defeat the World 3 boss to be able to unlock more content to purchase in the Mall?

I've been creeping along very slowly in World 3 and was just wondering if I'd end up sighing like hell at the end.

The Mall unlocks are probably just beating the final boss. I can't say for certain, I did all the optional ones along the way.
 
The achievements specifically state you need to beat every level, however.

Good enough, I suppose.

@rjayb89: I can confirm that you can purchase everything in the mall and unlock hardcore mode just for beating the last boss, however if you want the achievement you will have to beat every level.
