Collapse! Achievement Guide
This is my third achievement guide, first one I'm making the day the game actually came out, most have been well after the fact.

Roadmap
- Estimated achievement difficulty: 1/10 (this game is riddiculously easy to 100%, you'll have the hardest trouble on 40 blocks at one time, but even that isn't that hard)
- Offline: 10
- Online: 0
- Approximate amount of time to 200: < 1 hour
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed: less than 1(probably)
- Number of missable achievements: None
- Glitched achievements: None
- Do cheat codes disable achievements? No cheat codes
- Does difficulty affect achievements? No difficulty levels


All levels are re playable by clicking on the level from the world map screen, so you can revisit any level you wish to get the achievements.

Remove more than 20 blocks with one move.

See Huge Buster

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2088/+3EhZQ==.jpgBig Buster 20
Remove more than 30 blocks with one move.

Remove more than 40 blocks with one move.

The easiest way to get this is to click the bottom center of the screen to fill up the screen with as many blocks as possible. Then strategically filter out the blocks of unwanted color. If there is a bomb, it makes it even easier.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2088/-zMyDw==.jpg [B]Clean Sweep 30
Remove all the blocks on the screen.

This will most likely come with natural play.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2088/-PLDKQ==.jpg Rainbow Sweep 30
Remove blocks of every color currently in the game in rapid succession.
The catch is 'currently in the game'. This is best done within the first few levels when the colors are only yellow, blue, and red. Simply collapse a block of 3 or more yellow, then red, then blue. Or any combination thereof so long as it's a different color with each click. I'm not sure how quick 'in rapid succession means'. Maybe the '4 seconds' granted by Fast Sweep.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2088/-RI7ug==.jpg Fast Sweep 30
Remove Blocks 5 times within 4 seconds.

Pretty self explanitory. Just build up a tall tower and tap the screen rapidly, you're bound to get it.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2088/-9XXJw==.jpg Sniper 10
Every click removes blocks.

This requires a bit of patience and has to be done on a level where the blocks come up from the bottom of the screen automatically. Just make sure that every time you tap the screen it is on a group of 3 or more blocks and you'll get it no problem. Don't tap the screen to make more blocks come or it won't count, each tap to the screen has to remove blocks as it says, not make more blocks arrive.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2088/-jUvtA==.jpg Close Call 20
Complete a level when blocks are in the topmost row.

Not too hard, just stack the tower as high as you can as often as you can and you'll get it.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2088/-YvCdQ==.jpg Single Handed 10
Complete a level without using any power-ups.

I got this on the first level. I didn't even know there were power-ups at this point in time, but sometimes bombs will show up as early as the first level. Just don't click any power-ups if they do show up.

Solve a Puzzle with as few clicks as possible.

The first puzzle, and also the easiest, is the second jungle level after the fire boss. Solve it in 4 clicks and the achievement is yours. (White, Yellow, Purple, Blue)

I don't know how to get the achievement pictures off my live account to submit them... otherwise I'd do that, because all the pictures are ?
EDIT: ah, ok someone got them uploaded cool

Approximate amount of time to 200: 1-3hours

I think you could put this down for 15-30mins. I had all 200 in 15 and then seen how long it would take once I knew I could do them all in the first few levels of Quest and it took me 5 minutes. So if people are following the guide they really shouldn't have a problem doing it in less then 30 mins.

I have already submitted the icons so hopefully they will appear soon.

I got my first 7 achievements in 5 minutes while at work. Then I went for a meeting, and did the last 3 in about a 10-minute toilet break. So 1-3 hours is definitely way off the mark. :D

Huge Buster is even easier to get on a 'Strategy' level, such as the 3rd story level. There is a far less worry of the cubes advancing up on their own.

How in the hell can you even fathom 1-3 hours?? 10 minutes max.

Game is less than an hour for sure. Do it as < 1 Hour or say less than 1 hour.

Yes it's an easy game, but you may as well edit the descriptions in perfectly. A big example is your puzzle one. Here's what I would have said:

Solve a Puzzle with as few clicks as possible.


Playing quest, you will eventually get to a level that's a yellow square with red around the star on the map. This type of level is a "Puzzle". You must complete it within the given number of moves (4 in this case). To get this, press the squares in this order: White - Yellow - Blue - Purple.

Note: This can be done on any puzzle level in quest mode, but cannot be completed in quick play.

Also please follow the correct roadmap guidelines. With that format the roadmap would not be accepted. You should put things into steps. Refrain from saying things such as "The way I got it was". Try to make it a guide, as if you were to buy one in a store. Not a journal of how you got the achievements. I'm only trying to help shape it into a good format. VIdeo may not have technically be needed, but it doesn't hurt.

In all honesty, this game should not even be allowed to have a guide. It would take longer to read it then it would take to beat the actual game.

And I still think the "less than 1 hour" is vague. Put 20 minutes max.

Ok that literally took 5 minutes to get 200G. I just let the screen fill up and tapped with 4 fingers all over the screen.. unlocked all but 2 achievements right there. Then played another game and got the 30/40 block achievements. Super easy!
