Achievements

MONSTAFISH GAME MODE

Absolute Beginner 10
Reach Level 5 in MonstaFish!

Easy simply get to level 5

Move bubbles together to make a bigger bubble, tap bubbles to explode them and kill fish.

Keep an eye on your pollution meter if it gets too high you lose a life, you have three lives shown as red lights above your pollution meter.

Coloured bubbles do double damage to the same coloured fish.

Collect bubble goldfish and a goldfish will appear, burst a bubble and hit the goldfish and he will reduce your pollution meter.

Committed 15
Reach Level 20 in MonstaFish!

Easy simply get to level 20

See absolute beginner to general instructions/tips

On later levels make sure you take out big fish quickly using big bubbles as they cause more damage and kill them quicker and make sure you make full use of the goldfish to reduce your pollution meter.

Rock the sea floor 10
Achieve a Hyper Bubble in MonstaFish!

You can do this on the 1st level, create two big bubbles, burst a bubble and have the explosion kill the fish.

Goldfish Rescue 5
Get the Goldfish to clean the pollution meter in MonstaFish!

Keep collecting bubble goldfish eventually a goldfish will swim across the screen - Hit him with a bubble explosion to make him swim to the pollution meter and clean it for you.

Monsta Skills 15
Achieve 3 Mega Bubbles on a single level in MonstaFish!

You need to be on a high level 17+ so there are enough fish to kill.

A mega Bubble is a bubble burst hitting 4 fish, do this three times on level.

FISH HOOK GAME MODE

Control Freak 15
Complete 10 levels in a row without losing a bubblefish in Fish Hook

Starting on level one this should be easy as the it only starts to get hard around level 15+

Pick up a bubble fish and lift him up to the boat to collect - Bubblefish have 4 hit points so this should not be a problem.

Look for spaces in the fish before lifing bubblefish up to boat.

Complete 10 levels without losing a bubblefish to unlock.

If you do lose a bubblefish immediatly hit the back button and chose retry, this will restart you at the beginning of the current level but will not void the achievement

Thanks to ThrR4nMyWolfpak for retry method.

Captain Hook 15
Reach level 15 in Fish Hook

You have more bubblefish than required to finish a level and each bubblefish has 4 hit points.

Look for spaces in the fish before lifing bubblefish to boat.

Get to level 15 to unlock.

FISH HUNT GAME MODE

Survivor 15
Survive for 2 minutes in Fish Hunt

Keep shooting fish, DO NOT SHOOT BOOMERS OR TOXIC BARRELS as they increase your pollution meter.

Shoot green bubblefish to reduce your pollution meter.

As long as you do this you should easy last 2 minutes.

Point Break 20
Get 8x points in Fish Hunt

Wait until you have two fish close to one of your crosshairs and shoot this will give you 4x points, do this again for 8x

Must be done straight after each other, you can do this on the 1st level if you ignore fish until you get a double double.

TIME ATTACK GAME MODE

Sharpshooter 15
Hit 50 fish in a row without missing in Time Attack

Take you time to make sure each screen tap counts, hit 50 fish in a row to unlock.

Terminator 10
Last all 3 minutes in Time Attack

Make use of the bubblefish pick-ups, avoid hitting boomers and toxic barrels and try to kill as many fish as possible.

Boomers, toxic barrels and letting fish leave the screen all increase your pollution meter.

If you are struggling even with the help of bubblefish then use the wave method listed below in Loner.

When you last the full three minutes and this will unlock

Loner 15
Last 3 minutes without the help of any bubblefish in Time Attack

The hardest achievement in the game, you cannot use any bubblefish pick-ups and need to last 3 minutes.

To last for 3 minutes you need to kill nearly every fish and avoid hiting any boomers or toxic barrels as they increase your pollution meter rapidly.

Note the fish spawn in waves and each wave adds 1 fish, so to begin with let the 1st fish get to the edge of the screen before killing him as this will waste some time before the second wave arrives. 2nd wave has 2 fish, you can kill one fish but wait until the other is at the edge of the screen before killing the 2nd. 3rd wave has 3 fish, you can kill two but wait until the last fish is at the ede of the screen befire killing the 3rd. etc etc etc.

If you do this correctly you can get to as little as wave 10 by around the 2 minute mark and this is when the boss fish come into play, hitting a boss makes him smaller and knocks him backward so using boss fish as the last fish in a wave is key to wasting more time.

Using this wave method you can finish the game with as low as 192/208 fish hit.

This is a massive reduction in the fish you need to hit (270/282) if you kill all the fish as quickly as possible.

Special thanks to TrishTheDish for the head up on the waves.

FISH TANK GAME MODE

Happy Birthday 10
Get a second fish for the Fish Tank

You have a fish tank, take care of your fish!

Tap the screen to feed the fish, wipe your screen to reduce your pollution meter and full screen swipe to kill snails which stop your new fish meter.

Keep your fish happy, pollution meter low and no snails and your new fish meter will fill up green and give you a new fish when full.

Pure Gold 30
Get a goldfish for the Fish Tank

Keep your fish happy, pollution meter low and no snails and your new fish meter will fill up green and give you a new fish when full.

There are many fish to unlock after your 1st free blue fish, It should unlock around fish 13.

It takes around 2 hours to unlock all fish, make sure you get rid of snails as soon as they appear and your pollution level low so as not to delay your fish meter from filling.

Note you do not have to keep your fish happy by feeding them and they will fall asleep but what else is there to do huh? =]

1 GREEN
2 RED
3 DARK RED
4 YELLOW
5 GOLD & PURPLE
6 LARGE GREEN
7 LARGE BLUE
8 PURPLE
9 ORANGE
10 SILVER
11 BOOMER

A better range of time then 2 hours + would be good. Got over 4 hours into the fishtank mode and still no goldfish.

Good guide but id say time is 3+ hrs as tank mode takes a min of 2hrs on its own and then an hr+ to get the rest as time trial is tricky as you say

playing the aquarium on the phone, while playing skyrim (or any game with alot of load time) works well! ^^
each time something loaded, looked down to see if there were any snails, swiped them away, and if the polution get's to high, you get a sound warning, easy as pie!
and btw, you don't have to feed them damn fishes all the time either, act like a mafia and let the fishes sleep with the fishes... (?) or something

Thanks for the guide was fairly helpful. My only complaint was you stated you cannot hit any boomers or barrels at all for loner. It was confusing to me because you mentioned it. I thought it may have been a secret stipulation for the achievment so every attempt where I hit one I instantly restarted because I thought I had already failed. Long story but I ended up getting it even after hitting several boomers. As long as you get nearly every fish youre OK. thanks!

when going for the 3 minute achievement, another tip i would add would be to try to hit your bubble ahead of the fish, ie: the direction the fish is swimming into.especially with the large blue fish as it knocks them backwards instead of forwards.rinse and repeat this on the same fish whenever you can to gain easy seconds.

I've seen comments on the TA guide that says if you hit the boss fish when they're at the edge that they're supposed to turn around and swim the other way. How do you get them to do that? I waited till a boss fish was at the edge of the screen and tapped him and he just raised up then went off the screen.

No, they only get knocked backwards about a quarter of the screen but you need to pop a bubble directly in front of them. Not as good as turning them round but you can do it twice to each boss fish.

man.. terminator, let alone loner are fuckin hard.. even using the trick of hitting the fish at the side of the screen

Finally got it done.. had to put it down for a minute and come back.. took multiple attempts but once you get the timing of the fish it gets easier.. definitely hit the green squid looking like fish first.. they are the fastest

I'm not a fan of guides which state the difficulty like: "1/10 but 10/10 for this and that".
I'm a long time x360a user and I'm used to the community for always going "all in", therefor even if it's only one that is supposedly tough, that's the dificulty that should be put.
However, difficulty rating is almost always messed up, since usualy, either it be for bragging reasons, or true naive ones, the guy who does the guides normally rates it lower than it realistically is.

But, I'm just stating my opinion, I'm not saying the OP did a bad job, far from it.

I agree with you there. I think the difficulty should be that of the hardest achievement. Can I point out I am not saying bad job either. Absolutely brilliant to see an Achievement Guide on day one of release. I have already added this to the Easy 200 list.
