Achievement Guide & Roadmap
- 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

-Hold a tile to "flag it"
-Hold a flag to mark it as unknown
-Hold an unknown tile to unmark it completely.
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.
Savior of the World - 15
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".
Good Start - 10
Complete a minefield for the first time
See "Good Memory"
Happens to Everybody - 5
Trigger your first mine
Just click on tiles in a game board until you hit a mine to gain this achievement.
Good Memory - 20
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.

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:

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.
