For some reason I am unable to achieve the Hexic Addict (play 100 games) I've been doing the timed mode trick. The difficulty setting is on Easy but I know i've played well over 100 games. I've unlocked every achievement except this one. Perhaps its a glitch? Does it have to be done in one sitting? I have had to update, I wonder if this resets it...

Nevermind, apparently I was about 35 game shy of 100 games. Oops. Guess it just "felt" like I've played 100 games already.
Note: updating the game does not reset the 100 game counter.

Total games

Is there a place where I can see how close I am to the 100 games played? I've had this game since launch and I used to play a lot but no achievement. Is there like a website to show this? or should I just count from 1 starting now?

Thanks!

I'm afraid there is no way to know for sure. Just keep going and it will unlock!

Yes, unfortunately hexic.info is dead. The admins had pretty much abandoned it a while ago.

The best advice I can give you is patience. Nothing is forcing you to make moves, so double, triple, and quadruple check your moves before you pull the trigger. If for any reason you are not 100% confident that you will not cause a collapse, don't make a move. Hasty moves never got anyone this achievement.

As for multiplier farming, you MUST have a master grid, and it's advisable that you have it up in the first level before the stars begin to fall.

I posted this in another thread, but thought it might be useful in this stickied thread since hexic.info is mentioned a lot.

Hexic.info is still available at
http://web.comhem.se/~u77401132/hexic/index.html
I imagine the owner just let the hexic.info DNS entry expire.

Also, I found these videos helpful:
Master Grid Pt 1

In the video, you can click the green annotation to get to Part 2. Then click the next annotation to see how to go from a Masters Grid to a Poobah.

Note: I did not make the videos. They were just ones I found which were most helpful to me.

Edit: Got the Poobah today. I only made the bottom 3 rows of the Masters Grid, then one more Star on the 4th row, on the left. I continued making stars there, moving them to safety down below. After a bomb, I would make a pearl and move it to the bottom left. (I waited until after a bomb since the pearl messes up some of your grid, giving you less control.)

I would then rebuild my 3/5th's grid and continue as above, making a pearl after a bomb. After the 5th pearl and moving it to the bottom left, I didn't bother rebuilding. Instead I made my 6th pearl in the bottom right area, moved it, and made the Poobah.

An extra piece of advice:
Get rid of colored star multiplier pieces. When combined with a bomb, every tile of that color will be wiped out, wreaking havoc on your grid. Only defuse a bomb with one as a last resort.

I still feel I got lucky. Most of my bombs were very easy to defuse.

Grand Pearl Pooh-Bah is one of those achievements that are great when you're home sick or with a broken leg. So.. I still may one day get this!

This game is very difficult but I guess that can be expected because it is a puzzle game.
