Play Pusher and use the Audiosurf track under Radio. Just fill a column with Red > White > Red > White > Red and you'll get it. You may have to push 'em to the middle.

Just go the two BIT.TRIP Beat achievements. The gamepad one was kind of dumb, like the old guitar hero "finish with a controller" achievements. Cool that the Portal 2 level is still in the game.

I got it for finishing 1-6, but I had already completed the game before that, so could be :/

Yeah, it's a loose key. I was going to give it it a friend and I figured I'd do it through Steam but I'll just send it in an IM instead I guess.

You need to make a vertical strip of red/white/red/white/red blocks. I just did it in Pointman mode to Spirit in the Sky by William Shatner (no, I'm not kidding.) I'm glad to be done with it, something about Audiosurf makes me feel like I'm going to have a seizure every time I play it although I've never had a seizure in my life.

I did mine in Pusher Elite to Deadmau5's Sofi Needs a Ladder, which has a bunch of stop-start stuff. It was pretty fun! :D

In other news, I really wish Valve would fix Steam's LIES.
I figured I'd reinstall team fortress 2 (with the 'TF2 beta' still in my library), so it said "4517mb required", which I still had. Then it started crashing and complaining I needed more space. Turned out I needed 10.6 gigs to install it, or over twice as much as they claimed. -_-

The 'normal' TF2 link lies less (6-ish gigs), but it's still a sizeable difference.

Noticed the same thing with various games with mandatory DLC file downloads, where they don't get counted to the install total.

After some more Toki Tori time, I caved and looked up the solution for bonus level 2. Then I felt bad because I was so close. I had figured out how to make the bridge at the bottom and only needed to figure out how to speed them up to make it work. I had already tried variations on the latter and never got it to work, but I probably would have gone back and made it work had I thought about how I had one more enemy than I needed for the bridge. Let that be a lesson: never look up the solution!

The music which accompanies the stage is the best. A version of Jingle Bells with what sounds like a drunken development team singing the lyrics at times.

Just redid the beat hazard one.
Conclusion: MUCH EASIER without shitty rap rapage of "christmas songs" like earlier.
Edit: And then the nsync started and I started dying again lol
Edit2: When the internet radio cuts out, I lose ALL my power and can't kill anything anymore. Die, and I just see enemies floating in darkness. What?

Also, what, there's a spacechem one? (not on the steamtreasurehunt wikia page yet?)

How to cheese the Beat Hazard achievements in a few easy steps:
1. Start playing survival, get to 5 minutes.
2. Internet radio cuts out. Blessed silence. No more nsync. You don't respawn. "Huh", you think. "I wonder..."
3. 5 minutes later. My that's a lot of ships. And hey, there's only one boss ship.
4. 10 minutes later.Yawn.
5. 15 minutes later, you're done. The same boss ship stayed on screen the entire time without getting any buddies.

I got the Atom Zombie Smasher one after some help from the Steam forums, which I will put behind spoiler tags for no particular reason. A good tip was to not do too well on the early waves, because every civilian left alive is another zombie you'll have to kill later when you will already have too many zombies to kill. Let most of the people die early; as long as a single one is left alive, you don't lose. An even better tip was that the game speed modifiers from the main game work in this mode. Use the space bar or plus and minus to reduce the speed as low as ten percent and it becomes a cakewalk. And if the achievement doesn't pop up, start a new campaign, go into the first area, and concede. Like DrPirate said, that should do the trick.

It occurs to me that all this achievement talk should be in a dedicated sale discussion thread somewhere.
