How is the 24h achievement... achieved? I know it's 24 hours, but is it 24 consecutive hours or 24 hours total?

Yeah I finally got it about an hour ago. What's up with the Sharpshooter achievement or whatever it's called where you have to clear a level in 5 seconds? Is it not obtainable or just really hard to get?

I don't think anyone has gotten the sharpshooter achievement. The best I can do is about 15 seconds, and don't see any way I can cut that by 2/3. I guess if someone were to have their first shot start a huge chain reaction they could do it, but you would have to be very lucky.

I'm pretty sure you need to beat SS 7 in gauntlet mode. I gave up. I can't get past SS 5.

I beat SS7 in Gaunlet mode and didnt get the achievement, it still keeps going, brings you back to a lower lvl again. I think you need to achieve son of sun in all the different lvl's to get this unlocked. I only have 1 lvl left and I cabn't unlock it cause I cant get by lvl 9 in the adventure mode.

Crash
02-23-2006, 01:47 PM
I'm pretty sure you have to get to at least SS1 in all of the gauntlet levels

Yeah, there are a few levels that keep kicking my butt. I swear the arcade games have some of the most time consuming achievements, and hardly worth any points

wait, so that means you have to beat adventure mode, right? to unlock all the gauntlet mode levels. that sucks. i can't beat stage 8.

This is very true. I just got it. One tip to getting it though would be to turn OFF the auto-off feature on your 360, as it will automatically shut your 360 down after 6 hours of inactivity.

On to 100 gaps and 100 coins !!

Were all the comments above about how you get the achievement correct? What did you have to complete to get it?

Okay, so the main page was updated saying that Zuma's achievements are complete. Who got the sharpshooter achievment and how the heck did you get it?

anyone figured out the 2 million scores one

anyone figured out the 2 million scores one

On the xbox.com forums I read that the 2 million scores one has to be achieved in one game by playing through adventure mode and at the end having a score of 2,000,000. You get tons of extra points at the end if you have a bunch of lives left and people are getting the 2,000,000 point achievement because they are ending the game with like 20+ lives left.

That being said, I really hope that it's not true because that just sucks! :mad:

Wait, you can just start a game and have it paused for 24 hours and still get it?

I was wondering if the full version had save points, and if so how often are they?

You can save your game at any time. During any game, just pause it and go to the main menu; thus, your game will automatically be save and you can continue at any given time.

I've got all the Zuma achievements apart from the 2,000,000 one. However, my accumilated score is above 2,000,000 so I'm guessing it has to be done in one sitting. Still, if some else can confirm whether or not it is accumilated, I would be very grateful as I am still in denial. Please tell me there is another way apart from playing the whole game from beginingto end! (which I have almost done, and reachdd 750,000...3 lives left :(

Sorry to drop the bad news Hayabusa 117, the Score Championship achievement has to be done in one play-through; not exactly in one sitting as you know by now that you can save your game.

I'm having quite a time with the Sharpshooter achievement. It's driving me nuts. It has been so elusive that it now haunts me in my dreams. Damn Zuma...damn it to hell!

and that is what pisses me off about arcade game achievements. That should be worth a whole lot more than 20 gamerpoints.

man, these are some hard assed achievements. I've managed to get 6 of them. Anybody get the full 200 points yet?

Got Zuma around Xmas '08 I think, reason being it was only 400 points and the missus said she used to play it when she was younger. She did also say "Don't get that game, it drives me insane", but I chose to ignore that and get it anyway.

So she's played it on my profile a bunch.. I'd say she's clocked up way in excess of 60hours playtime. And has all the achievements except this 2'000'000 through adventure mode, it's bloody difficult! My only noteworthy contribution was getting the Sharpshooter achievement - I have a knack of being able to stick at small annoying repetetive things until I get them done, that's how I 100% peggle, another damned pop-cap games special!

Back to Zuma though, I get to about stage 7 or 8 and then it's not happening for me. The missus is like a savant, plays through the entire adventure mode in one sitting trying to get the 2'000'000. I think her best is about 1.6m. But the standard target from everything I've read seems to be 1'000'000 and 20 extra lives at the end, allowing you 3 lives to lose (inluding the one you start playing on). Obviously if you didn't lose any of them you could afford to get a score of 900'000 as I don't know if the life you're playing on score you 50'000 come the end of it.

Stupid stupid game.

Score Champion in the bag. Just thought I'd clarify that your life in hand does count as an extra life, so if it says x19 it's actually 20. Which is good, because having lost 3 lives the missus had 19 left and a score of 1'026'678 or something close to that, scraped over the line with 2'026'678

100% Zuma. I think this is the hardest arcade game I've ever seen to 100%.

so what if you saved you game every level then when you were about to lose you quit to dash then reload?

Can you get the achievements twice if you buy the hardcopy of the game that comes with like three other arcade games? or does it just count it as the same game?

Finished Zuma not too long ago, and it was incredibly difficult. Sharpshooter is annoying, but it's easy when put next to Score Champion.
Scored 2,200,000 or so, as I only lost one life in stage 9, but my times began to slow as the stages went on.

My tips for Score champion are to run the achievement at least once or twice a day. I know that sounds tedious, but you do eventually start retaining the speed you need for the later stages, and you'll get better as you play. The game demands speed and accuracy.
Don't be discouraged with bad runs and near attempts. I accidently dashboarded and lost 850,000 at one point, and had runs of 1,600,000 and even a heart-breaking 1,930,000 which made me quit playing for 3 days.
I think the most I did in one day was 3 and a half (unsuccessful) runs at the achievement. The bright colours burn into your brain after a while.

Also music helped me get through this one, as it's a long achievement, especially when it goes bad. Picked a song that hypes me up and stuck with it. Felt great when I finished this.

Good luck to anyone trying for this achievement, it's very difficult indeed. Just be patient and try not to let it get you overly angry.
