Hey, I was wondering before I purchased this game, how difficult are the achievements??

Thanks,

Easy 160 points, one 40 pointer that's pretty tough. It's just like the other Namco games.

Agreed... I got 160 in about an hour, and have spent another hour or so working on the last one and gotten pretty close.

Ok, just finished it up... A little practice and a little patience makes this one of the easiest 200's so far.

Just getting used to the game and I got 110 of the points in like 15 or so minutes, real simple lonnie.. Should be a pretty easy 200 from what I can see, I almost got the 40 point achievement on the first try, but messed up on level 5, and then came 1000 points short for the 100,000 point achievement! ;x

Then I realized that you can press the A button to use smoke! LMAO! Should finish this off tomorrow if I feel like playin it..

Yeah, I didn't pick up on that until I was at 140 either!

I got the first 160 in about 45 minutes, then took a break (and got out of my rhythm) came back a couple hours later and took about 5 stabs before getting the last achievement. If you just sit there and don't get frustrated I'm sure a lot of people could do it all in 45 minutes to an hour.

Iff there are people who are having trouble getting the 40 point achiev, try this: Start up at level 7 (bonus level) and go trough without getting kild and let yourself die in level 8. There you go, achievement unlockt.

Firstly, I can confirm this works. Wow.

Second, this game is SUPER easy. Personally it was easier than GALAGA for the full 200. I played about 45 minutes total to get all the score, and the very first game I played I got 8 achievements at the same time.

I was surprised how easy of a 200 this was! I put less than an hour into it.

I was going to try that but thought "there is no way they would make it that easy". Oh well, too late to try it now :p

Wow. Nice to know about the smoke. I've been getting my ass kicked left and right, so maybe that will give me a better shot... It's really annoying to suck at a game that's almost as old as me. :uzi:

That's about right. As everyone said, there are only 2 "hard" achievements, get to level 7 without dieing and reach 100k. If you're playing for score you'd probably get them both at the same time. I got something like 150k reaching level 10 I think.

Edit: Oh I didn't see the trick about starting on level 7. Well hell, the 100k is hardest one and that's rather easy. I'd say 60-90 mins if you've never played before.

For Points, Start at the First Level. Always go for the Special Flag First. Its the one that Blinks on the map. And Get the Lucky Flag If you see it on the way. After that just gather all the other flags, and by level 7-8 you should have 100k

For the levels, just keep trying, theres not much more to do.

Straightforward 200 - easily achievable in a couple of hours. Unlike the other Namco games - Pac Man Perfect Achievement? Rock.

This is probably the easiest 200 Points I have ever gotten, it only takes a few hours at the most. I got all of them in less than an hour.
