A Twisted Smile's Gamercard
Pin Win 30
Win a game in Bowling

Simply win your first game of Bowling. This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty or against a friend locally or online. If you’re really rubbish, just ask your friend to let you win.

Neon Lanes Champion 10
Win a game in Bowling (Champion difficulty)

This requires you to win a game of bowling on Champion Difficulty. As the name suggests, it is rather challenging, especially for 10 as your opponent regularly hits strikes and spares. A lot of practice is advised before tackling this Achievement, ensuring that you can consistently hit plenty of strikes, as you will need them if you want any chance of winning. A good stance always helps, with one foot behind the other and the shoulder you’ll be throwing with slightly back (as if you were actually bowling). Line up the ball with the centre arrow, bring the ball back and release, leaning forward slightly but remembering to keep your arm straight, or else the ball will curve.

Doing the Splits 15
Clear a split in Bowling

This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty or against a friend locally or online. This requires you to knock down a split of any kind. A split occurs when the headpin is knocked down, but a group of two or more non-adjacent (not next to each other) pins are left. If you are unsure, the game will announce whether or not you have obtained a split or not. The best way to knock these down is to approach one pin at an angle, and put spin on the ball so that once it’s knocked down one pin, it will spin back and hit the other. As always, practice makes perfect with this Achievement.

Wood Chipper 15
Break the lane with a high ball in Bowling

This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty or against a friend locally or online, however I advise going for this Achievement in a single-player game without the computer, or a multiplayer game with a friend, where you don’t have to worry about a score etc. Basically, rather than bowling properly, this Achievement requires you to attempt to bowl overarm and smash the ball down onto the lane. It may take a few attempts, either to actually get Kinect to recognise your overarm bowl or for it not to just fly out of your hand, but once it smashes, it’ll roll a little bit and the Achievement will pop.

Turkey Triumph 15
Get a Turkey (3 strikes in a row) in Bowling

This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty or against a friend locally or online. This requires you to bowl three strikes in a row, known in Bowling as a ‘Turkey’. It will take a bit of practice, but once you get consistent at scoring strikes it’ll come easily. Try and keep a straight arm and bowl straight down the center, putting as much power on your shot as possible without making the ball spin. See “Neon Lanes Champion” for a more detailed technique on bowling strikes.

Ball Blitz 15
Score 350 or more in the Pin Rush Bowling mini-game

This will require a bit of patience and practice. The aim of this minigame is to knock down as many pins as possible within the time limit. You get 60 seconds on the clock to begin with, and a subsequent 5 seconds for every 30 pins you knock down. You can pick up two balls at once, but a new frame of pins will only be added once the previous frame has been cleared. One of the best techniques to use here is a ‘windmill’, where you stretch both arms out straight, pick up both balls at the same time, then ‘windmill’ them forward so they finish straight. The balls will continue to flow, so just stretch your arms out horizontally again and keep the action going. After a bit of practice, you’ll achieve your target of 350+.

I have included a video below to illustrate:



Clear Up! 25
Score 10 or more in the One Bowl Roll Bowling mini-game

The “One Ball Roll” minigames is exactly as the name describes. You only get one ball to roll per frame, and you have to use it to knock down the pins that you are given. You only have to clear 10 frames to net this Achievement, and have 5 chances to mess up. It is not as difficult as it sounds, just take your time and throw as straight and with as much power as possible at the center of the pins. There are a few “split” shots here, especially towards the end, requiring you to hit one, or two and have the pin bounce towards another. Unlike the other bowling minigames, you aren’t timed, so you can take your time in lining up your shot. Try and avoid using too much spin here if possible, and remember to use the blue lights on the lanes as a guide for positioning yourself.

I have included a video below to illustrate:



King Pin 15
Score more than 250 in Bowling

This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty or against a friend locally or online. This will no doubt come through natural progression of improving in skill in Bowling. If you don’t have it before facing the Champion, you may get it when you face them. It is by no means a perfect score, so don’t be worried if you mess up a little here and there, just try and keep consistently throwing spares and strikes and this will come easily. See “Neon Lanes Champion” for a suggested technique on bowling strikes.

And the Winner is… 30
Win a match in Boxing

Simply win your first game of Boxing. This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty or against a friend locally or online. If you’re really rubbish, just ask your friend to let you win.

Tornado Gardens Champion 10
Win a match in Boxing (Champion difficulty)

Patience and timing are the keys to winning here. Just throwing wild punches may work on lower difficulty opponents, but against the Champion it’ll just result in blocks and stuns, which aren’t good. Combos work well, following one punch with another but as soon as your opponent begins to block, withdraw and play on the defensive side yourself or else you risk getting up their power bar. Remember that it’s a game; exaggerated movements work best. If you’re going for an uppercut, for example, really throw an upwards punch so that the game actually reads it as an uppercut. When blocking, try not to keep your hands too close together, just to make sure that Kinect reads it as a block, so that you’re not caught off guard thinking you’ve blocked when Kinect’s read it as something else. While stuns are your worst nightmare, they’re also your best friend. Once you’ve made a few blocks and got up your power bar, go for a wide hook shot. If it connects, it’ll daze your opponent for a few seconds allowing you to go crazy with the punches without worrying about a counter-attack or a block. Bear in mind the technique mentioned below in “Stunning Recovery” in case you’re subject to a stun yourself. No matter how you win the match, whether it be a KO, TKO or from a technicality at the end, once you win the Achievement should pop.

TKO 15
Win a match with a technical knockout (3 knock downs in 1 round) in Boxing.

You have to knock your opponent out three times in a single round. If they’re not all in the same round, they won’t count. This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty (although obviously lower is easier) or against a friend locally or online. If you’re playing a friend, just have them sit back until you knock them out, then have them punch the stars that are floating around their head so that they can get back up again. Repeat another two times. You should win the game by a technical knockout and your Achievement should pop.

Kiss the Canvas 15
Knock down your opponent with an uppercut in Boxing

An uppercut is simply a punch thrown upwards, towards the chin. This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty (although obviously lower is easier) or against a friend locally or online. The aim is to get your opponents health down to the red, then focus on throwing all your punches in a vertical, upwards motion towards your opponents chin. You should knock them out with an uppercut, and your Achievement should pop. Obviously, if you’re going to do this with a friend, you can just have them stand and do nothing.

Comeback Kid 15
Win a match after being knocked down 4 times in Boxing

This can either be done against a computer on amateur difficulty or higher (as the computer on beginner difficulty does not know how to knock you out), or against a friend locally or online.For this, you need to be knocked out 4 times in a boxing match, and then go on to win it. Due to technical knock outs however, you can only be knocked out twice per round (in rounds 1 and 2), or else you will lose by default. Once you have been knocked out, you will have to hit a selection of stars that circle around your head, which increase with difficulty the more times you get knocked out. Once you’ve recovered from your fourth knockout, you need to knock your opponent out without being knocked out again yourself. If you’re doing this with a friend, just let them knock you out four times, only reacting to hit the stars, then after four knock outs, knock them out and have them do nothing.

Stunning Recovery 15
Survive a stun sequence without being hit in Boxing (Professional or Champion difficulty)

This has to be done against either a professional, or champion difficulty opponent, although naturally professional will be easier. You will notice a ‘power bar’ beneath yours and your opponent’s health. Throw some punches at your opponent while they’re blocking in order to charge this bar up, and then once the three segments have been lit up, stop guarding and let them stun you. You will know that you’re stunned because you will no longer be able to hear the crowd. You will then need to try and read the computers movements for about 5 seconds by blocking all of its punches. If it ducks slightly, chances are it’s going for a low shot, and if it’s stood tall, it’s probably going for a high shot. Block these shots (you should only have to block 2 or 3) and if you haven’t taken a hit, the Achievement should pop.

I have included a video below to illustrate:

They Think It’s All Over… 30
Win a match in Football

Simply win your first game of Football. This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty or against a friend locally or online. If you’re really rubbish, just ask your friend to let you win.

Lotus Park Champion 10
Win a match in Football (Champion difficulty)

The key here is possession. The longer you keep the ball without losing it, the less chance the computer has of taking the ball and scoring. When you’re passing the ball around, remember to pass into space. If a player is marked and you pass to them, they will more likely than not, get tackled and you will become subject to a counter-attack. Try and shoot when you feel confident that you’ll get the shot on target, as the more goals you can score, the better. Try and build up a good lead, and if you keep up the offense you may even get “Golden Boots” at the same time. When it comes to defending, make yourself as big as possible as the computers favour passing to the side, not between your legs, and this means you’ll have to move less to block passes. If the computer does get a chance to shoot, try and adopt the stance mentioned for “Golden Gloves” and bear in mind that with it being Champion difficulty, there will be a fair bit of stretching for the tricky corner shots. After the match is finished, if you’ve beaten your opponent, then your Achievement will unlock.

Hat-trick Hero 15
Score a perfect hat-trick (1 header, 1 left foot and 1 right foot goal) in a match in Football

This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty or against a friend locally or online. It requires you to score three goals, one with your left foot, one with your right foot and one with your head. Obviously, the one with each foot should be pretty easy to do, as you simply need to get the ball into some space where you can shoot, and take a crack at it. Once you’ve scored with one foot, use the other. For a header, however, you need to get the ball into a position where it can be crossed; either attempt to cross the ball (which sometimes works, and sometimes doesn’t depending on your position). The best way to score your header is to get a corner and to cross it in that way. Keep an eye out for a marker to appear by your head, as this will indicate that you are able to header the ball. Position yourself by the marker, so that when the balls crossed in, you can header it. Hopefully, after all three goals you should have netted yourself the Achievement.

… It Is Now! 15
Win a match by scoring a goal in the last 10 seconds in Football

This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty or against a friend locally or online.This should come through natural progression with football, as you will constantly be trying to score goals up until the last second. Just keep intercepting your opponents passes and keep passing your ball around the field until you opportunity to shoot arises. The goal can be scored by any means, whether it is a shot, header or even a penalty. If you’re worried about taking your time to net this and being tackled, simply play against a friend and ask them to let you score at the end without any opposition.

Beat the Gull-keeper 15
Scare the bird from the crossbar using the ball in Football

This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty or against a friend locally or online.This one should occur through natural gameplay, however here are a few tips to ensure that you get it. This can be If you’re trying to The seagull seems to perch on the upper-left of the goalpost, so aiming in the top left hand corner seems to work best. Bear in mind however that he will not always be there, so keep an eye out when shooting to ensure that if he’s there, that you get him. To scare him, you can either score a goal or miss; it doesn’t matter which as long as the ball travels in his general direction, enough to be deemed a threat!

I have included a video below to illustrate:



Golden Gloves 25
Score 100 or more in the Super Saver Football mini-game

This minigames is exactly as the name suggests. It will require you to be in goal and block shots. Like with some of the other minigames, it is life-based, so you have a few chances to mess up; it doesn’t have to be perfect. Like with all other Kinect football matches, a ball prompt will appear to let you know where the striker will be shooting, and you must use your body to cover the shot. A good stance to adopt is like an actual goalkeeper; legs slightly apart, arms bent at a 90 to the side. This should leave you with minimum movements needing to be made, simply a few small side to side movements and a lot of up and down movements with your arms. Try to avoid using your feet, as tempting as it might be, as it can throw you off balance a little. Be warned, the further you advance, the faster the striker will shoot, however if you save lots of shots in a row, you will be rewarded with an extra life, so you should easily have enough for a score of 100+.

I have included a video below to illustrate.



Sharp Shooter 25
Score 80 or more in the Target Kick Football mini-game

A series of targets will appear behind the goalkeeper in the goal. You have 40 seconds on the clock to clear as many targets as possible. This Achievement is actually not as difficult as it seems, provided that you can use both feet to strike a ball with. There is very little delay from one ball to the next so keep shooting, as the quicker you clear each set of targets, the more time you’ll have left for the next set. Also, for each set you clear, the game will reward you with a 5 second bonus. If the goalkeeper gets in the way, just strike one ball in the opposite side of the net, then the next at the target at they have no chance of saving it then as they’re on the wrong side of the goal. Just keep firing as quick and as accurate shots as possible and you should get this Achievement with very little hassle.

I have included a video below to illustrate:



Golden Boots 15
Score 5 goals or more in a match in Football (Professional or Champion difficulty)

Once again, this is not actually as difficult as it seems, as long as you can keep up the shots. Quick reactions are a key here, so that you can pick your passes relatively quickly before the computer has time to react to them. Try and, like you would in a real game, pass to someone in space – especially when it comes to shooting as you’ll have a little bit more time to place your shot. If you lose the ball and have to defend, spread yourself out and make yourself as big as possible. The computer favours passing either side of you, rather than trying to pass between your legs, so the more spread out you are, the easier it is to cover these sides without having to sidestep too much. With a bit of patience, this one should come over time. Obviously, playing a professional difficulty opponent will be easier, but this could come just as easily against a Champion difficulty opponent, as you will need to score to much as possible and keep the ball away from them as much as possible in order to win.

Head of the Table 30
Win a match in Table Tennis

Simply win your first game of Table Tennis. This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty or against a friend locally or online. If you’re really rubbish, just ask your friend to let you win.

Blade Center Champion 10
Win a match in Table Tennis (Champion difficulty)

Try and play the match like you would a real table tennis match. Remember that the game registers when you put spin on the ball, and it is trick shots like these combined with attempting to make the computer stretch to the other side of the table, like mentioned below in “Roll Them Over”, that will help you on your way to victory. Take note of the shots that your opponents play to try and counter them accordingly, as your opponents can put spin on the balls too which will cause them to be returned differently eg. a shot with back spin will be slower, meaning you will have to wait longer before returning it, and a top spin shot will need to be hit earlier than a normal one. With a bit of practice, this Achievement should be yours.

Roll Them Over 15
Force your opponent to roll 3 times in a match when reaching for the ball in Table Tennis

This is another Achievement that sounds a lot more difficult than it actually is. Simply return three balls to the opposite corner of the table to which you returned it last. For example; if you’ve just played it to the left, return it to the far right. This will cause the computer to roll in an attempt to reach it. These rolls do not have to be consecutive, as long as all three are achieved during a single match. This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty or against a friend locally or online.

To the Left, to the Right 15
Win 2 games, one with each hand in Table Tennis

There are a number of ways you can achieve this. The game simply requires you to win 2 games, one with your left hand and one with your right hand. This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty or against a friend locally or online.

  • You can either attempt to do it yourself, against a computer on a low difficulty if you are confident using both hands.
  • You could have a friend let you win if you know that you can’t use one hand as well as the other.
  • You could beat your opponent with your preferred hand, then have a friend step in and play the second match using the hand that you’re not so good with.
No matter how you choose to win, simply win 2 games, one using each hand, and the Achievement should unlock.

Have It! 15
Win a match with a smash in Table Tennis

This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty or against a friend locally or online.Simply when it is match point for you, win the point with a smash. This can only be attempted when the ball is lobbed in the air. Try and move closer to the table and wait for the ball to come down a bit before swinging hard to smash the ball. Placement is crucial, as you should try and smash it to the opposite side to where the computer is stood, or they may be able to return it and you’ll have to wait for another opportunity.

Return to Sender 25
Score 60 or more in the Rally Tally Table Tennis mini-game

This is actually one of the more difficult Achievements to obtain, as you need to resist the urge to just smash the ball. Direction and placement is the key here. There is no time limit, however your opponent will begin to return the ball faster and faster as you approach the needed score of 60+. The best way to approach this is simply to return the ball in as straight a line as possible back to the computer, so that it goes directly to them, rather than forcing them to move for it, which can cause them to miss and the rally to end. Just keep persevering and don’t let the pressure get to you. Stay focused, and this Achievement should be yours.

I have included a video below to illustrate:



Paddle Perfection 25
Score 150 or more in the Paddle Panic Table Tennis mini-game

This isn’t actually as difficult as it sounds, although it will take a bit of practice and the ability to use both hands accurately to return the balls. You have 45 seconds to return 150 balls, which will be passed to you on both sides of the table. You only need to return them, but it doesn’t matter where on the table you return them, as long as they bounce on the opposing side. For every 5 balls you hit, you’ll get a 2 second time bonus. Holding your arms out at a slight angle, like the goalkeeper stance mentioned in “Golden Gloves” will help here, as you will only need to make small hand movements to return the balls, rather than huge wind up smashes. You may need to employ the “windmill technique” mentioned earlier for “Ball Blitz”. Keep returning the balls until you’ve scored 150+ and this Achievement will be yours.

I have included a video below to illustrate:




Table Top Triumph 15
Win a match conceding no points in Table Tennis (Professional or Champion difficulty)

Slightly more difficult in some respects than simply beating your opponent, as this Achievement requires you to win with a score of 11-0, playing against a Professional or Champion difficulty opponent. Obviously playing the Professional difficulty opponent will be much easier. See “Blade Center Champion” for tips on how to win, and on returning certain trick shots. If you can win the game 11-0, without conceding a single point, then the Achievement is yours.

champion boxing was a pain to do and left me extremely sore for days afterward and im in decent shape... best tip is to only do uppercuts once you have full bars...

the thing with champion is that it isnt even fair... he is much stronger than you so it ends up being entirely based on endurance

THE BEST TIPS I CAN OFFER:
1) Face block with your hands perpendicular to the floor
2) Body block with your hands parallel with the floor
3) Guaranteed stun with a 3 bar uppercut otherwise its all luck

#3 took me so long to figure out and once i did i managed to beat him quickly

EDIT: It would be great to mention that this is going to be mostly done based on decision. Very hard to get more than 1 knockout, 2 if your very lucky.

btw, how do you change the colour font to purple?
Hey, I was more than happy to write one. It was really good fun to do actually.

You see the little button with the "A" on and the black rectangle underneath, above the text both when you post, next to the font name and size? If you click the little arrow next to it you'll get a drop-down bar with a load of colours on. Just highlight your text and then choose a colour that way, or choose the colour before you type.

No worries man, I'm glad I've been of help.
Let me know how it works out?
And is it? I guess it varies from person to person, based on personal skill, haha.

Ive heard reports that you actually have to beat 360 points. I think it was super saver where some1 got 100 pts.

The football mini games plus champion is by far the easiest to get the achievements.

I was actually going to post a question about this... I'm having an extremely hard time with Track and Field on Champion, mainly because I get destroyed in Sprint and Hurdles. I've watched the Rare video guides, and it doesn't look like they put an immense amount of effort into running (certainly not more than I do), yet they seem to run really really fast in the videos. Is there a trick to getting the game to register a faster run? I pick my knees up about waist level when I run, since that's what I've seen in the achievement guide videos, but is there any other trick? Like keeping my knees spread apart more so it recognizes individual leg movement? What about lighting? I have a lamp right next to my TV, and one on the other side of the room, maybe 20-25 feet away. I'm about 8-10 feet in front of my TV. Should I reduce lighting behind me?

Thanks for any help.

Since mounting my camera its now at eye height and its tracking my knee movements a lot better. Im not running on the spot faster than before but my av is without a doubt.

Turn off the lamp near the tv as the glare can effect the camera so use the main lights in the room to light up the play area.

I didn't have a problem with this one. To get the achievement, you have to smash into a 2 or 3 target three times in a row. So get at least two 2 targets, turn one into a 3, hit the three, then hit your smash into the remaining two target. This is automatically give you another smash. Your first smash should've created a 2 target. So hit your second smash into this 2 target for another smash. Then just repeat.

You may have been confused if you got a smash, hit it, created a 3, then got another smash. The smashes have to be back-to-back. Each smash has to hit a 2 or 3 so it comes back to smash again.

Hope this helps.

The achievments on this game are bullshit. Some too hard, some impossible to unlock.
