Easy "Dr. Fetus Boy" achievement

Start with Level 6-5X: "No Quarter", as it is the most difficult level in the chapter. Once completed, move to level 6-4X: "Maze Of Ith", and be very careful with the middle rolling saws. Wait until the bigger ones pass to have more time to go up safely. After passing them, complete the other three levels in the correct order. Level 6-1X: "Detox" will not be a problem after some practice. Level 6-2X: "Ghost Tomb" is the easiest level in the chapter. Level 6-3X: "From Beyond" requires some timing.

If you are confident in your platforming skills, use the following level order. Start with Level 6-5X: as it is the longest level and has the most chances for error. It has no real safe routes, and features many risky jumps and obstacles. Next, move on to either Level 6-1X or 6-3X. The first has a difficult start, but once past the first two sets of saws, you can patiently complete it easily. Level 6-3X is more open, and has a difficult start. Avoid the saws carefully and watch your jumps on the moving platforms. If you miss and begin to fall, pause the game and exit to map to avoid death. Next, play Level 6-4X. It just requires time and patience. Practice it beforehand to get a solid route through the first half of the maze. Once towards the end, pay attention to the moving saws and watch for appropriate openings. Finish with Level 6-2X. There are only a few dangerously positioned saws, and most of the level will depend on your skill on narrow platforms once the key has been retrieved. Pause the game and exit if you end up falling, and watch out for the final saw.

Easy "Nostalgia" achievement

"Retro Warp Zones" are dark purple portals that are present in some levels. They will disappear awhile after you start the level, requiring you to reach them quickly.

Easy "Rare" achievement

To get the "Rare" achievement, your total time in The Forest (both Light and Dark Worlds combined) must be under about 300 seconds, and all 40 levels must have been completed. By repeatedly breaking your best times across all those levels, you will eventually get the achievement.

Easy "Wood Boy" achievement

To get the "Wood Boy" achievement, you must complete The Forest (Light World) in its entirety without dying once. If you die, all 20 levels must be repeated. Pausing the game and exiting to the level selection menu or switching characters does not count as dying. Difficult levels are 1-20, 1-19, 1-18, 1-11 and 1-12. Start with levels 1-20 and 1-19 because they are the longest with more chances for errors. After that, play level 1-18 and time the long jump properly. Then play levels 1-11 and 1-12. After those five difficult levels are completed, play 1-17 followed by the rest of the remaining levels. Be caution and choose safer routes over speed.
