Truly Magnificent Deed

i can on some levels get a bonus of 400K but it seems impossible with some stages especially with those 2 blue spam ball things.

Any tips from those who got the achievement?

This is the only help I've found so far.

BTW what is your best % on the Blue Ball Qix stages? I don't think I've broken 90% yet...

Finally got this achievement last night. The key for me was playing session 1 and creating very narrow passageways for the Qix to go through. You should be able to get 99%+ vs. the Stix Qix, and 98%+ on the others, with the exception of "Blue Ball"

Good Luck!

Ok I do have the 3 million point acheivement and heres the secrets I will tell.
First off pick section 1 not 2.. 2 is harder and the level 8 qix is super fast
Next upgrade your CUTTER SPEED first and make sure you get at least 95% on 5 levels and at least 98-99% on the others to guaruntee youll get it.

Next thing to remember is the points/upgrade blocks. Collecting the ones with the green triangles gives bonus points. If qix cracks one of these and you rescue them the point total bonus goes up. Along with more luck the points increase. An extra 500-15000 can appear if you do things right and capture alot of blocks in one spin.

Next make narrow paths by creating short but long lines this way
This makes qix have to move lengthwise which is his weakness. He is much easier to trap and cut off this way as up and down is how he moves.

Now theres 2 power ups which help you acheive 99% 99.5% gets you 44000 points so basically if you can get this every level is way easier to do.

2 power ups- the red one which shoots balls of light into qix... this will shrink him within 10 seconds... if you can find the blue time stop power up block this is the absolute easiest way to get 99%. You must make sure qix is trapped in a square no bigger then a nickle/quarter.

If you cant get these powerups youll need to make long skinny lines and lure him into a narrow passage. If you can do this he will become trapped and may shrink if he needs to move left or right. This is the time to seal him off. Make sure you dont go over 75% or the level will and and you wasted your time.

Killing sparks etc dont get you extra worthwhile points.

Also having shields maxed after cutter speed will make things easier if you mess up on later qix. Every qix is different... the one with the tail you must make a long path with ridges to stop the tail from lagging into your path.

Trust me with time it works...
if you dont beleive me im top 10 on the section 1 leaderboards
Microsoft doesnt like "drunken" but im still a feedle and still drinkin!

Acheivement Unlocked!

I've got the blue ball up to 97% and that takes patience and a lot of effort

Took me forever, but I FINALLY got this achievement!!! Now all I need is the other 2 (online), but it's difficult to find decent people to play with as no one is really playing this anymore, and I haven't touched my 360 for so long...
