Introduction
Minesweeper comes back in Xbox LIVE for Windows 8, with brand new graphics and sound effects. A nice and sweet 50, just in a coffee break time!

Abbreviated Walkthrough
Let's just start with Happens to Everybody 5. Start a game on any difficulty and click on a mine intentionally.

Next, aim for Good Memory 20. Start a new game on easy difficulty, complete the game without marking mines but reveal all other blocks. This also grants Good Start 10.

Finally go for Savior of the World 15. Win a game on both medium and hard difficulty, that's it!

Conclusion
Old school Minesweeper game, free from Windows 8 Marketplace. Why don't you have a try?

Is this achievement glitched? Won a game on all 3 boards, but it did not unlock for me.

Edit: Won on small and medium again and achievement unlocked.

I had to win medium two times.

Also the requirements of the achievement are different than in the game. In the game it says "Win in each board size".

Also2, this is game is very buggy and freezes a lot.

You can replay the same board when you fail. I took a picture of each board with my phone after failing and then when you replay it, you know exactly where each mine is.

For anyone that wants to get all achievements in less than 20 minutes:

1 - Play a board and try to hit a mine as fast as possible.
2 - Choose View Board and then hit Alt + Print Screen to save a high quality picture to your clipboard.
3 - Open up paint and press Ctrl + V to paste the picture, then hit F11 to go full screen.
4 - Choose Play Same Board in Minesweeper then just Alt + Tab between Paint and Minesweeper.

Your mouse should line up perfectly on both so you can just put it over a mine in paint, Alt+ Tab and you'll be on the same square in Minesweeper. Probably the easiest game to get all points in regardless of skill.

I cheated on the expert board. Took a picture of the board with my iPad, played the same board and bingo, I won.

I played the expert board for probably 60 minutes before going the cheating route.

Played and won on easy, medium and expert 4 times each and the Saviour of the World achievement still wont unlock. Anybody got any ideas?

*EDIT* Weird, unlocked whilst I was playing another game, definitely buggy!

You have two achievement descriptions backwards.

Also, I actually got an achievement that didn't show up in the game (complete without flags), but when I looked on xbox.com, it registered, so that achievement might be glitchy.

Their seems to be a glitch and the game won't show you receiving an achievement. But if you exit then reload the game, then it will show it as unlocked. Happened to me with the "Good Start" achievement, it was making me mad then I exited and it showed it as unlocked.
