Achievement Guide
 
Action Mode
Get to level 9 in action mode
No easy way around this. Here are some tips:
- Do not use hints, as you will lose a significant chunk off your scoring bar at the bottom
- Speed counts. If you have a fast eye and fast fingers, you will score big.
- Set yourself up. If you can make hyper gems and power gems and refrain from using them until you are stuck, do so.
- You cannot run out of moves. The game will drop combos into the level if you are low on moves so check near the top for quick moves.
- Once you hit level 5, make as many single moves as you can but ALWAYS keep your eye out for combos. Single moves will barely do anything to the scoring bar.

Cascade 8
Get a x8 cascade during any game mode
This is purely luck, but your best chance to receive a x8 cascade is in the earlier levels. Try making combos near the bottom. Like I said, its purely luck and if you play enough, I'm sure you'll come across this one.

Classic Mode
Get to level 18 in classic mode
This requires a lot of practice. There is no time limit but you can get a game over if you have no more moves. Save your hyper gems and power gems for later levels. Once you reach level 18 you get this achievement.

Cognito Mode
Get 50,000 in Cognito Mode
To get the achivement for Cognito Mode first complete Puzzle mode completely. Then play Cognito mode - if you get stuck do not use the hint button because it will not give you any points for that level. Instead, quit the game (it will save your score and your level) and go back into puzzle mode. Press start and go the the level select screen and find the puzzle that looks like the one you are stuck on in Cognito (All the puzzles for Cognito and Puzzle are the same, they are just in a different order). Go into the right puzzle and use the hint button as many times as you need until you memorize the right order. Then go back to your game in Cognito and complete the level.
Or you can refer to this guide at gamefaqs -- IT HELPS!!

Endless Mode
Complete level 280 in endless mode
You are going to need a lot of time for this. You cannot run out of moves because the game will automatically start throwing "possible" moves in on the top when you start running low. The best part is, you can save your game, so it doesnt have to be in one sitting. If you're stuck don't bother using the hint button, for this will make your score bar go down, just wait the 15 seconds and it gives you a tip for free.

Finity Mode
Get to level 9 in finity mode
Finity Mode bears some resemblance to Action mode, in that you have a timer bar to worry about, and in addition to normal gems dropping in you can also get rocks, bombs, and even power gems. Get to level 9 to get this achievement.


Hyper Mode
Get to level 9 in hyper mode
Hyper Mode is a faster version of Action Mode with a slower timer. Get to level 9 to achieve.


Hyper1000
Make 1,000 hyper gems across all your games
If you play this on a reqular basis there is no reason why you won't get this eventually. If you are going for the Endless mode achievement, it helps towards the count a lot. You'll probably receive this achievement when you least expect it.

Multi Mode
Unlock Twilight, Hyper, Cognito, and Finity mode.
Meet the requirements to unlock the 4 mystery modes. 1 mystery mode is unlocked with each of the classic mode scenarios.
Finity Mode -- Complete 280 levels of Endless Mode
Hyper Mode -- Complete 8 levels of Action Mode
Twilight Mode -- Complete 17 levels of Classic Mode
Cognito Mode -- Complete Puzzle Mode


Power10000
Make 10,000 power gems across all your games
If you play this on a reqular basis there is no reason why you won't get this eventually. If you are going for the Endless mode achievement, it helps towards the count a lot. You'll probably receive this achievement when you least expect it.

Puzzle Mode
Complete all 80 levels in puzzle mode
This is pretty simple because you CAN use the hint button. You can try and get this legit but the quickest way is to just use the hint button repeatedly.


Twilight Mode
Complete level 10 in twilight mode
You get Twilight upon completing 17 levels of classic mode. This achievement is a little easier to get than the Classic Mode one, so if you were good at classic mode, you will no doubt be able to get this.

Nice guide. Good point on when you should and shouldn't use the Hint button.

Might I add that if you want to check how many Power and Hyper gems you have created. Just go to the Leaderboards at the Main Menu and you will see at the bottom all these statistics based on your progress. Power and Hyper Gems are among those.

Do you have to be playing while connected to Live for it to be correct, or can you play offline then play online once and have it show an accurate count?

EDIT: That probably sounds confusing.

I mean to say: Will it only show the Power and Hyper gems that you have earned while connected to Live?

So if you had to rank them, which would easiest and hardest achievements to get?

zlionsfan 01-15-2008 03:25 PM

Endless Mode would probably be the hardest because it takes so long. It isn't difficult like get-to-level-100-on-Robotron difficult, just incredibly time-consuming.

Puzzle Mode was probably the easiest for me, either that or Power10000. (It's much easier to create power gems without really trying than to create hyper gems.)

Nice guide.

Jedi ObiJoe 11-02-2008 06:55 PM

Thanks for the guide. I'm not fond of this game but I will eventually get back to it just for the points.

BemusedBox 11-13-2008 01:07 PM

nice guide looks like it will take some time to finish this.

Many thanks for the guide.

Very nice guide, good hints and tips, didn't know that you always get moves in action mode, so will have to go home and try this one again =)

. Anybody knows the answer to the question about showing the amount of special gems, only the ones when you were connected to LIVe or all?

How many have actually finished endless mode? It really feels endless to me =P

Wow . . . REALLY REALLY different from the requirements to get the PS3 trophies for this game. Wow.
