In Chapter 3 (Celestial Resort), there is a hidden playable version of the original Celeste prototype on a PICO-8 computer.

The game is surprisingly lengthy. I expected it to end at 2500m (screen 25), but it just seems to keep getting harder.

How many levels are in Celeste Classic?

According to a TAS video by Justin Jaffray, Celeste Classic goes up to 3000 m, plus the summit.

Completing Celeste Classic will unlock the Real Gamer achievement on PS4, Xbox One, or PC. (The Switch version does not have achievements).

    Having gone back and finished it, I can confirm the summit is just after 3000m. There is no in-game reward for finishing Celeste Classic.

    @StevenVascellaro There's an Achievement in the Xbox One version, at least.

  • @tobiasvl Ah, I played on Switch which doesn’t have achievements.

  • Stuck on 17. The video shows her running right through spikes (1:08), I don't get it. Is this with some kind of cheat code?

    @devios1 This is a tool assisted run (TAS), it takes advantage of glitches and extremely precise techniques that a human couldn't do. I would recommend finding a non-TAS video if you need assistance. (for example youtube.com/watch?v=cjenZS4xa3o)

30 Levels (3000 meters, 1 level = 100m)
