Any achievement that does not specify if it need to have default settings should be done on 1 difficulty and with 5 lives. Any achievement that requires default settings must have default settings when you start the game. Once inside the game you can change your controls.

Achieve a score of 20,000+ while playing an Xbox Live Co-op game
In order to do this achievement select multiplayer at the main menu and then choose the gametype CO-OP when looking for/creating a game. This achievement must be done over live. In order to get the 20,000 points I would recommend looking at "High-Score" for tips. The total points required is the combined total of both players score which can be viewed in the top left of your screen while laying co-op.

Get first place on in-game score board using default settings
For this achievement you must be playing single player. The default high score is 25602 (can be viewed at the top of the screen.) This is possible to unlock before the unlocking the achievement "Forlorn." You receive points for killing spiders, finishing the MCP levels, finishing the MCP levels with all blocks destroyed, destroying blocks on the MCP level, killing other light cycles, killing other tanks.
Here is the method I used since I am terrible at this game.

On level 1,
-play through the light cycle and tank level as normal
-do the spider level killing as many spiders as possible before time runs out
-do the MCP level destroying all blocks (1000 point bonus, sit on the left side)

On level 2,
-play through the light cycle and tank level as normal
-MCP level destroying as many blocks as possible (sit along the left side as long as you can)
-kill as many spiders as possible before time runs out

On level 3,
-pick a level and hope it's the spider level, if it isn't do your best to win
-once you pick the spider level kill the spiders in your way and get nearby the light beam
camp here and kill as many spiders as possible, if you are running out of time, have at least 1 more life, and haven't got the points. Allow the time to run out and replay the level.

Stay alive in the Light Cycle level for 7 seconds
Fairly easy. Do the first level and then use your light cycle to circle the arena. Consult the below video for more help.

Advance to the third level using default settings

Win 3 Classic Versus games over Xbox Live
Go to multiplayer and play either Vs, Vs Speed Mode, or Pressure Cooker online. Win 3 games (get the little "You Win" in rainbow colors) and the achievement is yours.

Kill all of the grid bugs in the first I/O tower level
For this achievement you need to kill the spiders in a specific order. Most people say to kill them right, then left, then top. This order makes is so that the top won't start reproducing (reproduction is based off of distance) until you move up to them.
Another possible additional boost is the do this online in a very laggy match. More lag means that the timer will actually give you more time, the enemies move slower, and your gun is easier to aim.

Advance to level 4 on the default settings

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/352/t09.jpgBlock Buster 20
Destroy all of the blocks in the second Level MCP cone.
Start off by changing your settings to 1 difficulty and 5 lives. Get to the second level and then find the MCP level.
In order to succeed here you need to start the game by moving to the far right of the screen. Shoot the blocks here and slowly start to move to the other side of the screen. Once you reach the opposite side camp here and destroy the blocks until they get to close. Then move to the right side of the screen and shoot to the left. Consult the below video for more help.

Enter the I/O tower without shooting any grid bugs
Start off by setting your difficulty to 1.
Head to the ISO tower on the first level then get to the far right corner. Move up slightly and to the left so that the spider come twords you. When there is enough room sneak around on the right and get inside the light.

Enter the MCP cone with a maximum of six shots
Set the difficulty to 1.
Head to the MCP cone level on the first level. Start by shooting 2 rows of bricks on the far left. Then head over to the right once they are destroyed. From here wait for the 2 rows you destroyed to be on the far right then quickly head up them. You may need to lead you run a small amount in order to make it before they alternate again.

Beat all 12 levels.
Possibly the hardest achievement here. Each level is comprised of 4 zones, the ISO tower, the Light Cycle, the tank fight, and the MPC cone. Here are a few general tips for them.

ISO tower
-The ISO tower is basically shooting through a few spiders in order to reach a light beam (placed in the center of the map)
-Shoot spiders that are in your direct path as you try to get to the light beam
-Getting closer to enemies increases rate of fire, further decreases
-Spiders only hurt you if you are touched by them, the further away the safer
-Run for the light when you can
-Don't bother killing spiders out of your way (except for points)

Light Cycle
-The light cycle is basically driving a motorcycle and leaving a wall where you previously drove, you need to avoid this wall while simultaneously avoiding others wall and trying to kill them
-Killing an enemy removes their wall
-You can make sharper turns while going faster
-The best way to kill an enemy is to trap them in a square of wall, then wait for them to die
-The AI are fairly predictable, you can repeat the same actions every time on the levels and win

Tank Fight
-You drive a tank and are trying to kill enemy tanks, you fire strange rubber balls
-Enemies take 3 shots, you take 1
-Your ammunition can bounce
-There are 2 ways to kill an enemy
1. Find a long hallway and shoot down it at them and dodge their projectile
2. Shoot your bullets so they bounce and hit enemies around corners
-Like light cycle, the AI is predictable, so find a route and stick with it if it works

MPC Cone
-You need to break through a group of blocks and reach the MPC cone above them
-The basic strategy is to shoot at where the blocks appear from and then escape through the newly created hole and into the cones as the gap reaches the opposite side
-The blocks may change their direction, so be aware of which way they move
-Try to destroy at least 3 rows before risking a run through

So, because I love responding to threads that are 2 years old...

The finish 12 levels, can I do that on difficulty one? For some reason, I never processed I could do that...

It appears as such, but I'd like to be sure before I try.
