Achievement Guide & Roadmap
 
Overview
- Estimated achievement difficulty: 1/10
- Offline: 4/4 (50)
- Online: 0 (0)
- Approximate amount of time to 50: 10-20 minutes
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1 Easy, 1 Medium, 1 Hard Board
- Number of missable achievements: None
- Do cheat codes disable achievements?: No Cheats
- Does difficulty affect achievements?: Yes (Must play all boards)
- Glitchy achievements: None
- Unobtainable achievements: None
- Extra equipment needed?: Windows 8

Controls:
-Click a tile to unveil it.
-Hold a tile to "flag it"
-Hold a flag to mark it as unknown
-Hold an unknown tile to unmark it completely.

Playthrough:
-Easy Board:
Start by selecting the easy board, and just continually click anywhere on the screen until you hit a bomb to unlock "Happens to Everyone". At the Game Over screen, select the option to view the board, and use a camera or "PrntScr" to save this image. Now go back, and select the option to play the same board again. The bombs will be in the same place. Go through the board using your picture, and click on all the non-mine spots without using the flag to unlock "Good Start" & "Good Memory".

-Medium & Hard Board:
Once completing the easy board, start a medium board. Use the same tactic as before, by failing on purpose, taking a picture or screenshot, and then replay the board avoiding all the mines. Once you do both of them, you will get "Savior of the World". If it does not unlock, replay them again just in case, and back in and out of the game.

Win a game on each board size

Use the picture/screenshot method detailed in the roadmap and the "Good Memory" achievement to complete the Easy, Medium and Hard boards. Once you complete each one, you will get the achievement. The hard board is quite large, so take your time using flags here and be careful. If you fail, just do the same board again until you get it, the bombs will stay in the same place as long as you don't choose "New Game".

Complete a minefield for the first time without using any flags

Start a game, and fail on purpose. At the Game Over screen, select the option to view the board, and use a camera or "PrntScr" to save this image. Now go back, and select the option to play the same board again. The bombs will be in the same place. Go through the board using your picture, and click on all the non-mine spots without using the flag to unlock this achievement.

1-2-2-1 achievement

Crab - nice vids for 1-2-1 and 1-2-2-1. They were very helpful!

Here are a few more tidbits if you're looking for some guidance:
  • Greedy: Gather 10,000 gold in Adventure mode.
    This will easily unlock before finishing level 20. On the home screen of the app, Statistics are on the far right. This is tied to the Total Gold Gathered stat. If, like me, you have already played Adventure Mode enough to get more than 10k gold, it will pop at the conclusion of your next level.
  • Monster Hunter: Defeat 100 monsters in Adventure mode.
    Which Door Was It?: Open 100 doors in Adventure mode.
    Won't unlock by level 20. The number of monsters and doors ranges from 0-4, with an average of 2 or so. You can also check this in the Statistics section of the app. I had 33 monsters and 20 doors when I finished level 20.
  • Wins At Your Back: Win one Daily Challenge every day over the course of a month.
    If this is like the Taptiles achievement, you must play the Daily Challenge every day for 30 days and win one of them. Playing past days won't count toward the 30.

For the Monsters and Doors achievements, I followed a tip from TA that worked well. Instead of proceeding to level after level after 20, just play Level 1 repeatedly. Your progress saves once you die or complete the level. If Level 1 has no doors or monsters, just use the menu to restart.

I was able to finish both achievements in about 2 hours. The hardest part was that the game would occasionally crash when I died and not give me the option to restart.

As no one else has written a guide for the title update I'll do one and get it up in the next few days.

Sorry, don't have access to the game anymore.

Your input would be appreciated by other for sure. PM the link, and I can include it in this guide if you'd like.

Sounds good. What I may do if you don't mind is do a complete guide for the full 200 and do a new road map.

I'd of course credit you as co-author of the guide.

Ace Attorney 86 03-05-2014 03:34 AM

Thanks for the vids! I stink have always stunk at minesweeper and had no idea what the 1-2-1 and 1-2-2-1s even wanted me to do.
