Roll in a Hole is a 2-D physics-based puzzle game that has you rolling a ball-like panda through a series of 120 levels towards the usually inconveniently-located exit portal. Additionally, on-route to the exit are 3 lollipops that can be collected. The challenge lies in finding the best path through the level to collect all 3 lollipops and then to the exit. It features both touch screen and tilt controls, which is always a plus. Currently the game is listed at $0.99 in the Marketplace.

Step 1: Collect all lollipops (11 achievements for 200 )
Play through all the levels starting from the beginning, collecting all three lollipops on each level as you go. After collecting all three lollipops on each level, you will have completed the game.

If you are a fan of physics-based puzzle games, quick and easy completions, or $0.99 games, you must pick up Roll in a Hole. Most of the levels are not that challenging and only a select few require a significant amount of re-tries. The game can be completed in about two hours and unfortunately offers little replay value.


1) It seems that if you complete a level and DO NOT collect all three lollipops and then move to the next level, you may never be able to get those lollipops again. When you retry the level, the game sometimes will not save your progress from collecting the remaining lollipops, which means you will not be able to obtain the "All lollipops" achievement. To avoid this glitch, never move to the next level until you get ALL THREE lollipops on the current level. See THIS THREAD for more information.

2) Some players report that if you back out of the game using the windows button or your battery dies while playing that your save file will become corrupt, effectively forcing you to start over from scratch. To avoid this glitch, be careful not to hit the touch sensitive hardware buttons and make sure your battery is not dying while playing. See THIS THREAD for more information.



The following 5 achievements are obtained just by completing every level in the game.

World 1 - 20
Complete all levels of World 1.

See "World 5."

World 2 - 20
Complete all levels of World 2.

See "World 5."

World 3 - 20
Complete all levels of World 3.

See "World 5."

World 4 - 20
Complete all levels of World 4.

See "World 5."

World 5 - 20
Complete all levels of World 5.

These achievements only require you to complete every level of each world. To complete a level, you only have to get to the blue swirly exit portal. You do not have to collect any lollipops. You will get these while you are collecting all three lollipops on each level of the game.

TIP: Sometimes the touch screen controls do not provide the necessary power to complete some of the levels. If you are having a problem, push the pause button (top left) in game and tap the button that changes to the controls to tilt. However, tilt controls are a lot less sensitive than the touch controls, so I only recommend switching it when you need the boost.

*GLITCH* Upon completion of the last level of World 5, this achievement may not unlock. Once it takes you back to the main menu, just select the Play option again, which takes you to the World selection screen, and the achievement should unlock.


The following 6 achievements are obtained just by collecting all three lollipops on all 120 levels of the game and the three in the credits.

15 lollipops - 10
Find and collect 15 lollipops.

See "All lollipops."

40 lollipops - 10
Find and collect 40 lollipops.

See "All lollipops."

80 lollipops - 10
Find and collect 80 lollipops.

See "All lollipops."

160 lollipops - 20
Find and collect 160 lollipops.

See "All lollipops."

240 lollipops - 20
Find and collect 240 lollipops.

See "All lollipops."

All lollipops - 30
Find and collect 363 lollipops.

These achievements are obtained just by collecting all 3 lollipops on each level. Once you gather the lollipops in a level, you must make it to the exit portal for them to count. There are a total of 120 levels, with 3 lollipops per level, totaling 360 lollipops.

The final 3 lollipops for the achievement must be collected in the credits. From the Main Menu, select "Help and Options", then choose the option that looks like three people. Once in the credits, roll the panda to the left, picking up the three lollipops and exit through the portal. Thanks to StolenPaper18 for this info.

You can also just replay the last level again after collecting your 360th lollipop, collecting the final 3 lollipops again and the achievement should unlock as well.
