Hole in the Wall: Deluxe Edition is a game of luck, strategy, and flexibility. It definitely helps to be in physical shape as well, but even if you’re bulky and short like myself, you can make it through (with lots and lots of patience). Tight clothes are recommended.
Be sure you have enough play space. Do NOT underestimate how much space this game requires. Nothing is more annoying than LOSING simply because it wanted you to stand where your bed was, despite it being a good three feet to the Kinect’s side.
Never trust your shadow. If you fill the space, but the game doesn't recognize you, turn to the side, wiggle around, put your arms above your head, stick your leg out; change your shadow around until the game confirms it. Sometimes, it simply refuses to do so.
Lastly, this game, unlike the show, is not about merely getting through the hole. Instead, it wants you to fill it. If you're short, get up on your toes to make your head match the wall's head. You can have the rest of the wall wrong, but the head correct, and the score skyrocket whereas squeezing into the entirety of the shape minus the head gets you nothing. Try to be intuitive to the game. If the hole is sideways, turn your body to the side, even if it isn't necessary to fit. Do what the game wants, and it'll be much nicer to you in the long run.

Champion - 30
Beat 1 Final Round

Halfway - 30
Beat 5 Final Rounds

Super dry - 60

Polystyrene King – 100
Beat 20 Final Rounds
Achievement will unlock after the twentieth show.
These achievements come from beating the Final Round at the end of each show. Though you can beat any rounds for these achievements, one show’s final round only counts as ONE. Since the game forces you to beat one stage to unlock the next, you'll have to follow the natural progression of the game and complete the Show section to net all of these achievements.
All in the whole - 30
Play a 4-player game
Either load up with three partners, or log into four accounts just grab a partner. You’ll have to fight the Kinect’s recognition software, but if you can pull it off, this achievement is possible with only two players, one playing each team.
Teamwork - 30
Win 1 show with a teammate
Achievement will unlock after the first show in co-op. See “Working team”.
Rock Team - 40
Win 10 shows with a teammate
Achievement will unlock after the tenth show in co-op. See “Working team”.
Working team - 50
Win every show with a teammate
Play all of the different shows with a partner in co-op mode. Upon completing the last remaining show, this will pop up for all players.
Perfectionist - 30
Finish a Final Round with no strikes
This achievement requires that you finish a Final Round with no strikes. This is achievable in both solo and co-op play.
Contortionist – 100
Successfully pass all walls in the game at least once.
For this achievement, you will need to pass every wall in both single and multiplayer -- a total of 800 walls. For multiplayer, it does not matter which hole you're in as long as you successfully make it through the wall. If you mess up any walls, simply reload the show and try again. You must then complete the show for the walls to count towards your progress.
Want a rubber ring? - 30
Win 10 shows against a human team
See “Best Team”.
Best Team - 60
Win 20 shows against human teams
Either grab a partner and play until you win 20 games, or fight Kinect's recognition software and go solo.
For solo play, choose your profile as the blue team. For the red team and choose to correct your identity to a dummy profile on your system. You will have to fight the recognition software and correct your identity repeatedly, but by controlling the red team, you can make them receive three immediate strikes, making the process a bit less tedious. Once they've received three strikes, the team is disqualified, and you can finish the game as the blue team without having to fight the Kinect.
I will survive - 20
Play a Quick Survival
For this one, simply load up Quick Survival from the main menu. You don’t even have to make it through a wall – simply start the round!
Give me five - 5
Pass 5 walls in Quick Survival mode
See “Give me Twenty one”.
Give me ten - 10
Pass 10 walls in Quick Survival mode
See “Give me Twenty one”.
Give me Twenty one - 21
Pass 21 walls in Quick Survival mode
These achievements are all about surviving in Quick Survival mode. Skill, physical fitness, flexibility, and endurance are all factors in this mode. Patience is the key here, and don't give up on a wall just because it doesn't recognize you right away. If you fill the shape and the meter does not start filling, MOVE AROUND. Try your best to squeeze into the shape, or alter your position enough for the sensor to recognize your efforts.
Also worth noting – Quick Survival only gave me boards that I had played in Show mode. I had only played the first stage of “Everyday Life”, so my boards consisted of showering, mowing the lawn, etc. If you want an easier Quick Survival, do it as soon as possible after you start the game.
Blue side of the Force - 20
Win a Battle on blue side
Start up a battle game, pick the blue team, and win. If you’re having trouble winning honestly, you can boost this achievement with a willing second player.
Red side of the Force - 20
Win a Battle on red side
Start up a battle game, pick the red team, and win. If you’re having trouble winning honestly, you can boost this achievement with a willing second player.
Flawless Victory - 30
Win a Battle by filling your gauge faster than the opponent on every wall
Start a battle game. On the first wall, fill your gauge faster than your opponent. If your opponent loses on the first wall, the achievement will pop. If your opponent doesn’t, make sure to fill your gauge faster on every wall.
Last Man Standing - 20
Win a Last Man Standing with less than 9 players
Simply hop on Last Man Standing with another player (at least one, less than 9) and win. Last Man Standing is a lot like Quick Survival, but it’s against others. Be the last in the pool and this achievement will shine. The achievement will pop after everyone else has fallen into the pool.
Rambo - 40
Win a 10 players Last Man Standing
The hardest part about this achievement is finding 9 others to play Last Man Standing with.
Simply hop on Last Man Standing with 9 other players, and win. Last Man Standing is a lot like Quick Survival, but it’s against others. Be the last in the pool and this achievement will shine. The achievement will pop after everyone else has fallen into the pool.
Olympic Swimmer - 10
Be the fastest in the pool on a Last Man Standing game
The hardest part about this achievement is finding someone to play Last Man Standing with.
As opposed to “Rambo”, all you have to do is be the first in the pool in a Last Man Standing game, i.e., the first to lose. Simply avoid the very first hole. Once you fall in the pool, the achievement should pop.

Narcisse - 10
Watch a same saved picture 3 times in the Extra within 1 access to Gallery
To save a picture, you will need to complete a round in Show mode, select Pictures once the round is over, select a picture, and click save. The picture will then be sent to the gallery.
To get to the gallery, go to Extra from the main menu, and then Saved Pictures. You will need to select one of these pictures (hover over it until it enlarges), then click the X in the bottom left corner of the screen to exit out of it. Do this twice more before leaving the gallery, and the achievement will pop.
Photograph - 25
Save 20 pictures
Each time you complete a round, you will have a series of pictures. Simply click Pictures after the round, select each picture, and click save. If you save every picture, you can get this achievement before you finish your first game. Upon saving the 20th picture, the achievement will pop.
Movie goer - 20
Watch a Funny Video
Whenever you beat a show, you unlock a video. Once you’ve finished the first show, go to Extra on the main menu. Click Funny Videos, select a video, and watch it. The achievement will pop as soon as you start the video – you don’t even have to finish it.
Fat - 30
Fill a hole at 100%
This one should come quickly, unless you have a small stature. All you have to do is span the entirety of a hole as it approaches the play area. If you do not get this on the first few holes, have patience. Eventually, one will be either skinny enough or compressed enough for you to fill the hole 100%.
Red Button - 19
Cancel a skyrocket launch
Simply quit out of a show-in-progress. Wait for the round to start, watch the little demo video, and as soon as you see your player, hold your left arm at a 45 degree angle to call up the menu. Tell it to return to the main menu and then confirm your action. As soon as you reach the main menu, the achievement will pop.
Vitruvian Men - 25
The cut out of Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man wall will appear in the Art show. Play until you fill the wall correctly. If you miss, reload the show and try again. The wall is possible in both solo and co-op. The achievement will pop immediately following the successful completion of the wall. Note: the wall does not necessarily pop up every time, so it may take a few playthroughs of that show to get it.
Skilled Photograph - 25
Take a picture of the Invisible Man
This is possible after the Final Round of the Australia show. Immediately following the Final Round, view and save any photo from the round. The achievement will pop upon a successful save.
12 in 1 - 30
Fill 12 holes at the same time
This can be achieved in the Disco show. There will come a wall with several holes, similar to a Connect 4 board. Spread your shadow to cover at least 12 of them and this achievement will pop.
Rebel - 30
See your shadow make a guide gesture with its right arm instead of left.
The Final Round of the USA game will net you this achievement. Play through the first three rounds of USA as normal. In the Final Round, your avatar should be a mirror image of you. Move your left arm to the 45 degree angle pause motion to activate the menu. When you do, your avatar will do the motion with their right arm, and the achievement will unlock.
