    To get this achievement you must do the following:

    -Collect all 32 Heart Squids (Your choice if you convert them into Hearts)
    -Collect all 20 Dark Magic
    -Purchase all Skills & Upgrades from the Shop (which will cost you 2300 Gems in total, and you can carry a maximum of 999 at a time)
    ++Shampoo x3 (50, 150, 300)
    ++Silky Cream x3 (50, 150, 300)
    ++Pistol Tune Up x3 (100, 150, 200) (Available from the start of Pirate Mode)
    ++Scimitar Polish (200) (Available from the start of Pirate Mode)
    ++Backdash (100)
    ++Recover (150)
    ++Power Kick (400)
    -Beat the game in under 3 hours. (You get one more hour than for the Any% Speed Run)

    As a rule of thumb, do this one in Pirate Mode (unlocked after clearing the game once) as you'll start with all the Pirate Items, allowing you to save a lot of time by being able to collect anything as soon as you reach it (barring parts blocked by story events).

    As an alternative method to following this walkthrough, if you have an Any% Speedrun save that has at least 15 minutes to spare then you could just run through and collect the rest of the items & upgrades/abilities on that one. (That's how I got this one, with less that 2 minutes left when I got the achievement!)
