This trophy is for reaching the Jungle Biome, the second biome of the game. In order to earn this trophy you will need to successfully navigate the Forest and reach the Limestone Camp above it. The trophy will be awarded as soon as you step on the bounce pad to the Limestone Camp - you do not actually need to enter the Jungle to receive it. The Forest Biome is at 200 points so if you die before then you can tell how close you got based on score.

Because the game is procedurally generated, there is no easy way to give a step-by-step instructions to succeed but here are some tips:

* There is a significant learning curve to controlling the seed - you must practice, practice, practice control. The game will be very hard while waiting for the control to 'click' in your head.
* Small smooth motions are best, rarely do you want to roll side-to-side quickly as it is easy to get out of control. (Inertia is a cruel mistress.) Practice rolling to a moderate speed and then stopping yourself at a desired location horizontally
* You actually have full vertical control of your seed - by moving both sticks up or down together. You want to practice until you are comfortable doing this (down as well as up) and you can do so without affecting your side to side motion much.
* Understand the enemy types and how they move, then you can plan how to get past them and not be surprised by what they do.
* The two most dangerous enemies in the forest are the side-to-side crystal eyeball guy and the seeking fly:
- for the eyeball guy watch his motion and move past him while his back is turned.
- for the seeker fly you can lure him down, slip to the side of him and then move quickly about a screen upwards to get out of his detect range. Alternately they only have 1 HP so if I see a soil plot nearby i will quickly grab a thornseed and then lie in wait for him.
- rarely (<1 in 5 runs) you will see a larger pink spider that chases you. I consider this more of a Jungle monster but basically he is a souped up version of the seeker fly. He has 3 HP you pretty much have to try and lure him down and then run up if you meet him in the forest.
* There is a diamond hole about halfway through the forest that gives you a free seed power (out of a choice of two). Do not miss!
* When you fall in a hole the damage is related to how far you fall back to the last flag (falling from the top of the forest will wipe out all three hearts). When your skill level is low you want to plant a flag seed about halfway up as insurance. (The diamond hole is a good reminder of halfway). Make sure the flag is in a location that you will easily be able to roll up and out of if needed.
