I cleared the entire level, killed one of the remaining enemies, allowing the fourth and final one to leave. This took me to the next level. As soon as I died on that next level, the achievement unlocked. Some people have reported that dying on the same level that you clear prevents the achievement from unlocking.

Yeah. The key is just to make it to the next level. Why it won't unlock if you clear it all and then die on that level is beyond me, but that seems to be the way that achievement is coded. I'm glad you got it.

I cleared it twice in three games, died on the next level, purposely running into one of the characters on level 2 and it didn't unlock.

To those that cleared it, did you die at all on the first level, or clear it on your first guy? I'm just trying to figure it out because this is a tedious and annoying achieve.

Thanks.

When I got it, I did not clear it on my first life. I died twice in the process of clearing the area and then finished on my last life.

I already cleared the stage 2 times, now. killed 1 and let 1 escape. On the next level I just ran into the first enemy, to kill myself. But both time, I didn't get the achievement! Do I have to do suicide with a rock or what??

Done it on the first level three times in a row now and no achievement. Once I did it it and played a few rounds. Nothing. Then I did it and ran into a guy on the next level. Nothing. Then I did it a thrid time and killed myself with a rock. Nothing. Anyone able to pinpoint the magic formula?

Got the achievement. Saw in another post that once you clear it you should walk around the screen clockwise then go back counter-clockwise. Did this, let myself get killed on the next screen and it popped up.

I had the same problem but what i did was clear a few more levels after that and getting some other achievements on the way and when i died i got the dig achievement. ^_^

It is not true you must die at the next level or walk around clockwise and anticlockwise. This achievement is not glitched! The key to got this one is symple. When it says that you must dig the entire area, it really means the ENTIRE area! That means also the pieces of level already dig! I did it 5 times, then I tried to walk also on the digged land (enemies lairs and the "T" the computer automatically dig at the beginning of the game), then I got killed in the same level, and worked perfectly!

Good luck, let me know if it worked for you!

NOOO. Neither the going counter-clockwise and clockwise nor the getting killed by a rock trick works!!! Cleared it already a thousand times and still no achievement! I'm extremely pissed off and am going to write a freakin' letter to Namco now!

Did it once, let myself die on the NEXT round... no achievement.

Did it again, let myself die on the SAME round... achievement unlocked.

Curious.

Hi. I tried it again months later, with nothing special in particular. It unlocked after first try. Seems really to be random.

i cleared the stage multiple times and didnt get it. Eventually i did the clockwise/counter clockwise walk around, let one enemy escape, and then killed myself with a rock on the next stage and got it!!!

nope, i've cleared the whole board 3 times and it won't pop in this go round of trying to get it. I did it 5+ times a few months ago when i first got the game. I'm getting really sick of that little song.

all you have to do i to dig All the entire even the black parts, and the surface, and the and if the rock braks any floor in his way down, you also have to dig there!! so wath you really need to do is to walk all the map from up to down and from left to right and then let die it doesnt matter if you let one live or you killem both or suicide it dont care just DIG THE ENTIRE LEVEL!! I hope i was clear.........

Its a drag i know but its true the clockwise and counter clockwise bid worked. Dig the entire area first then walk clockwise around and then counter clockwise around kill one let one live before you let him leave gun it for the middle of the level stay there dont move. go to next level suicide with rock :uzi:gameover.

I can't even get the clockwise/counterclock bit to work! I've done it over and over and nothing. It's a bummer.

Finally got it!!! Cleared the whole stage on my first life (I've gotten pretty good at it at this point), ran around all over for my next two lives. Killed a guy, went to next level, died with a rock. Boom. Achievement.:rock

There's a video on Youtube, watch it, copy it, and you should get it like I did - you clear everything, then go around the perimeter of the area once clockwise, then the same counterclockwise, and then get killed by the last enemy in that same level.

This achievement is glitched. I have tried everything in this thread multiple times now.

I've spent hours upon hours working on this stupid achievement. I've had several close calls but could never get over the hump. Last night I finally dug out the whole level. And of course the achievement did not unlock. This thing has so mentally drained me I'm not sure if I want to get it anymore. A 15 point achievement should not be this awful.

I just went back to working on this achievement after not playing in a long while. It's super frustrating. I've cleared the board a few times and have yet to have the achievement pop for me. :mad:

After not playing for a few days, I just went and played on a whim. Cleared the board, and ended up dying while trying to run around the board clockwise. Thankfully, the achievement popped up during the "achievement screen" that appears after you die.

Phew. Finally got it. I guess it's just one of those weird ones. All I can say is keep trying...

I think the rock suicide in the following level is the way to go. I cleared the map and didn't even make another round on the map like other suggestions.
