Kona achievement guide & roadmap


Can be done in one playthrough with a small amount of save scumming, but otherwise two playthroughs are recommended; the first as a full run for all collectibles/etc and to learn the mechanics - and a second (faster) run without driving, drinking, smoking or shooting. This second run should only take 3 hours or less.
