Introduction:
Welcome to Polar Panic!! Polar Panic is your typical puzzle game. In Polar Panic, you take control of a polar bear who is trying to save his family. All achievements are obtainable offline. The game is simple at times, but will make you think when trying to complete the harder puzzles.

Story Mode:
Polar Panic has a total of 10 chapters. Each chapter has 5 stages. Complete all chapters and you’ll unlock the Bear Necessities achievement. Play through the chapter 1 without losing a life and you’ll unlock the No Bears Were Harmed achievement. There are Huts/Igloos throughout the game the spawn Trappers. Destroy 50 of these Trapper Generators during the story and you’ll unlock the Housing Slump achievement. Progress through the story, killing all of the different types of trappers and you’ll earn The Right To Bear Arms achievement. Find 10 of the Ice Bear Life-ups, you’ll earn the Trophy Bear achievement.

Puzzle Mode:
There are a total of 50 puzzles in Polar Panic. Complete all of them and you’ll earn the Smarter Than The Average Bear achievement. There are two separate categories that you are graded on after completing a puzzle. First, is the amount of moves it takes you to finish the puzzle. Second, is the amount of time it takes you to complete the puzzle. Getting a rank of A in each category will earn you an AA ranking. Earn an AA rank in 10 of these puzzles, and you’ll earn the Brainy Bear achievement. Check this Link (http://www.youtube.com/user/mattvsworlddotcom) for a complete AA rank walkthrough.

Clean-Up:
After finishing the story, go back and achieve an A rank on each stage and you’ll earn an A rank for the chapter, this will unlock the Teddy Bear achievement. After completing a chapter, statistics will how many snowmen and bear cages you've broken. Go back to each chapter and stage, and destroy any of the ones that you're missing. Destroying them all will unlock the No Bear LEft Behind achievement. The best place to earn the Bear Faced Cheek achievement is on Chapter 6: Stage 1. The Long Shot achievement can be earned on any stage that is large. Stages like Chapter 10 Stage 3 and Chapter 10 Stage 4 are perfect. Play through stage 1 in chapter 3 and DO NOT kill any trappers. Break all ice blocks and snow mounds so the barrels roll freely. Once the last trapper is killed, you’ll earn the Roller Bear achievement.

Conclusion:
In conclusion, Polar Panic is a fun, entertaining and enjoyable game. Most of the achievements will come with natural progression. However, some will require much more thought and planning. Keep playing and you’ll eventually earn your 200:gsicon:.

Achieve a 10x Combo bonus (not achievable in Multiplayer)

For this achievement you must attain a multiplier of at least 10. This achievement can be tricky, as the time-frame between each kill is very small. You must act quickly to attain a multiplier this high. Start a level with more Hunter Generators. Destroying Hunter Generators can increase your multiplier much quicker than killing regular hunters. After reaching 10x multiplier, the achievement will unlock.

A good stage for this achievement is Chapter 6 Stage 1. The top left corner has multiple Generators, as well as multiple enemies. Grab the Freeze Power-Up in the center of the stage, and immediately run toward the Generators. Destroy the Generators, kill the remaining trappers, and the achievement should unlock. (This may take a few tries until you get it down to a T.)

Kill a trapper with a sliding block over 15 grid squares away

This achievement is also a little bit tricky. Finding a good, long level is the key to unlocking this achievement. Some of the later stages in Chapter 10 work perfectly. Be sure that you have enough to knock your block into someone. Pushing a block into a Trapper right next to you is fine, as long as where he lands is 15 squares away. When the trapper dies, the achievement will unlock.

I would like to say something about the Brainy Bear achievement. This wasn't obvious to me right away, but it's not necessary to get two A's at the same time for any given level. The grades are stored separately for moves and time. Given that, it's possible to spend whatever amount of time you need but finish a level with a least possible amount of moves, thus getting A for moves. Then play the same level again and complete it as fast as possible without caring for moves. When I realized that, it got much easier.

Not only this helps to get the achievement but can also improve your world standings.

Thanks for letting me know. The description has changed, and I'll be sure it changes on the main site, as well. :) Thanks again.
