Go to Time mode and start a game on the normal difficulty.
Get at least one cluster for the clock to start. Then, wait for the time to run out (50 seconds). This counts as a full game. Do this as many times as you'd like and after 100 games you'll get the award.

I played the faster way where you do timed mode on expert, and about 20 combos in you get a bomb, then just rotate a non-important piece multiple times until the bomb explodes. This method takes about 35 seconds a game.

I quite like the first method. It probably won't take me too long to do it as I have played a few games.

Yeah I used the first method where you just wait till timed mode runs out on normal difficulty. It took me around 2 hours, but I think it was well worth it!

06-25-2006, 03:17 PM
This is how I got it, take an hour or so.

Routine that is awesome advice. I did it and got the achievement but it took over 2 to 3hours. Yeah a little long. I did it while eating dinner then watching tv and using the wireless controller.

can you do it then pause or does the counter reste after you close out the game?

But its best to just get playing until you have the one million and 5,000 combos and then get this done

dnut24
12-15-2006, 02:50 PM
is it 100 game sin 1 sitting or it continues to count and can do on multiple sittings?

hey i've seen crazier shit happen. i mean i'm tired of putting in the codes for my UMK3 secret characters to stick, they seem to only stay for about 3-4 power shut downs.

so with that said i should be able to get tht achievement rather quickly then.

Hey, how long did it take you guys to get it anyway?

Sasori
01-25-2007, 05:22 PM
The first advice is good, but there is a much easier way of doing it. ' Wrong Way ' described it earlier. Simply go on Timed mode and Expert. Then simply focus on all of the star pieces and keep making clusters with them to rack up points, even a cluster of three star pieces if possible. When you can get to about 500 - 600 points, a bomb should appear. Then quickly go to another area, and move an unimportant piece untill the bomb goes off. This method should take you MAX, 20 seconds, if you focus on all the star pieces.

I'll probably differentiate between the two though.

Sorry, this question was probably already asked and answered but, do you have to do the 100 timed games in a row or is it 100 games counting all. Like could I do like 20 one day and the other 80 another day, or do I have to do it all at the same time?

Yeah, but with the other way you don't have to do anything you can just start it and do something else next to your computer/laptop. (Example: Im typing this now and i have Hexic HD running on timer game.) :woop:

Lol, done about 20 so far its 01:10 Am now, lol, only posted this 17 mins ago, i gues thats about 20 games. XD

Dont have this yet.

The others I still need Oyster Meister, Big Cheese..., Tick Tock Doc, Marathon Mogul and Big Peral Pooh-Bah so I should get it when Im trying to get these ones.

My problem is getting caught by the bombs (not always easy, especially if they are down one side, then starting at 7 later on) or running out of time in the timed games.

Millionaire and Collapse Master just came when I was trying for the above.

Every time I play timed mode it says I have a high score. I think I've played over 100 games so I'm wondering if it's keeping track of them all. Does this happen to everyone? There's no way to know how many you've played, right?

yeah. i have to give valve props there. they were the first people i saw to do that. usually, atleast though, it tells you your totals (not in the sense of achievements but just an overall thing). its gonna stink going for 5000 combos... though not nearly as bad as the rest of the hexic cheeves
