Parking Mania: Game Mode, Collectibles, and Miscellaneous Achievements
Game mode consists of a total of 220 Levels that get progressively harder. In every level you will need to "drive" a car/vehicle (or a number of cars/vehicles) from their starting point to their particular parking space while avoiding other parked/moving vehicles, obstacles, etc. Each level also has a certain number of collectibles in the form of coins but these are NOT required for getting 3 stars on the levels. You gain 3 stars by finishing the level with zero impacts so you must not lose any of your lives. There are some miscellaneous achievements that will be obtained in these levels as well, such as parking 15 trailers.

This is my first guide on x360a so if you have any constructive comments please post them below.


ACHIEVEMENT GUIDE

Licensed 10
Complete 10 levels

See "Parking Pro"

Master 10
Complete 40 levels

See "Parking Pro"

Parking Maniac 10
Complete 90 levels

See "Parking Pro"

Parking Pro 10
Complete 160 levels

For this achievement you only need to complete the required number of levels NOT get 3 stars. Obviously the earlier levels are easiest and so doing levels 1-160 will be the quickest way to get this. Just go slow and take your time as there is no time limit.

As you go along you should still try for 3 stars (no impacts) to help with "Overdrive" and get as many coins as you can in each level to help towards "Jackpot"

First Gear 10
Earn 3 stars on 1 level

This will most probably be your second achievement and will come after you complete level 1. You will need to park in the space without hitting any objects. Collecting the coin isn't necessary to get 3 stars.

Second Gear 10
Earn 3 stars on 5 levels

See "Overdrive"

I got this on level 5 having completed levels 1-5 with 3 stars.

Third Gear 10
Earn 3 stars on 20 levels

See "Overdrive"

I got this on level 20 having completed levels 1-20 with 3 stars.

Fourth Gear 10
Earn 3 stars on 40 levels

See "Overdrive"

I got this on level 40 having completed levels 1-40 with 3 stars.

Overdrive 10
Earn 3 stars on 90 levels

You earn 3 stars by completing a level without hitting any vehicles or obstacle so just take your time and go SLOW as there is NO time limit. ALL levels are unlocked when you start the game so you could try any of the 220 levels but naturally the earlier levels are easier. Collecting coins is not required for getting 3 stars.

Compact 10
Earn $10,000

See "Limousine" and "Top Buyer"

Sedan 10
Earn $25,000

See "Limousine" and "Top Buyer"

Sports 10
Earn $100,000

See "Limousine" and "Top Buyer"

Limousine 10
Earn $500,000

This achievement IS NOT CUMULATIVE. You will need the required amount in your "bank" in order for it to unlock so just keep collecting coins etc and DO NOT buy the extra lives from the store until you get this achievement first or it will take you much longer to unlock.

Obviously doing the later levels will get you more of a $ reward as they are harder to complete.

I have currently done 70 levels (mostly 3 stars) and have just over 320k so getting to 500k may take a while. I have also tried replaying levels but the cash does not seem to go up after a replay. Coins CAN be collected again in replays (thanks Arsenic 17)

No Claims Bonus 10
Complete a HARD level without crashing cars

The first level you can unlock this on is level 101 so go ahead and load it up from the level select menu. The level is straight forward enough and requires you to drive 4 cars from A>>B. You only need to finish the level with zero impacts so ignore coins, especially if they take you off the path indicated. Just go slow and take your time.

Just complete the level with no impacts and it should unlock. This hasn't unlocked for some so just try another level over #101.

BoxClever 10
Park 15 trailers

This will come naturally throught the course of the game but if you want it out of the way earlier just follow the following steps

1. Load up level 21 from the level select menu
2. Drive the truck to the right and hook up to the trailer
3. Drive the trailer to the "repair site". Once in the correct place the trailer will unlock from the truck.
4. Once this happens press PAUSE (top left corner) and then RESTART. It will say you will lose your progress.... IGNORE THIS.
5. Repeat steps 2-4 another 14 times and the achievement will unlock.

Turn on a Dime 10
Collect 1 coin

This will most probably be your first achievement and will come in level 1. Simply drive forward and the coin is opposite the parking space. Drive over it and the achievement will unlock.

Buck Up 10
Collect 5 coins

See "Jackpot"

Money Box 10
Collect 25 coins

See "Jackpot"

Jackpot 10
Collect 100 coins

If you are collecting ALL the coins from each level for the 3 star achievements then you should have this well before level 50. I got this around level 40. If not then just keep playing and it will unlock as soon as you collect your 100th coin. As you go along you will also need to leave the route indicated in order to reach the coins which creates extra problems and the likelihood you will hit another vehicle/obstacle so just take your time and go SLOW as there is NO time limit. You may play ANY level from the level select menu as they are ALL unlocked when you start the game but naturally the earlier levels will be easier.

Top Buyer 10
Buy 3 extra lives

On the main menu on the lower right hand side is a $ symbol for the store. Once inside you may purchase 3 extra lives to take your lives from 5 up to 8. The lives cost $50,000 , $250,000 and $500,000.

IMPORTANT NOTE As mentioned in "Limousine" it is recommended to leave buying these extra lives until you have the "Limousine" achievement unlocked otherwise it will take you longer as you will need to do more levels for more $$$ all over again.

Just a little confused. You say this in the Roadmap:

"Each level also has a certain number of collectibles in the form of coins which must be collected to get the 3 star achievements and extra lives which although handy are not related to any achievements"

AND this in the guide

"Collecting coins is not required for getting 3 stars."

This is a little confusing. You dont need the coins to get three stars. But if you get the coins and 3 stars you get the little golden steering wheel in the level menu. Is that just for satisfaction or is there something related to the golden steering wheel? It may be good to mention you can collect the same 1 coin over and over again, i.e. that coins can be collected many times.

Also you also say "As you go along you should still try for 3 stars to help with "Overdrive" and "Jackpot". " How does getting three stars help with getting coins. They are unrelated right?

Also, when do you roughly get 500k money? That would be good to add.

I just started the game. What makes it a 5/10? Is it just completing the hard levels later in the game?

And for the "No Claims Bonus" I tried it on level 101 and didnt get many coins. I took two damage (dropped down to three) but collected a life before finishing. I ended up with two stars but did not get the achievement. Not sure what the requirements are exactly...

^^As I say this is my first guide so apologies if I miss things but thanks for the input

I have altered the guide taking your suggestions on board so please take another look at it

I put the difficulty at 4-5 (not 5) but did say TBC along with 8-10 hrs as I'm awaiting feedback from others like you have given before I make it 100% =)

I keep making changes to the guide but completely forgot about the roadmap so thanks for pointing that out aswell

Personally I think 8-10 hours is far too optimistic. I have not even completed half the game yet, but that is just my thoughts. You have to complete 160 levels, and perfect 90 of them. Perfecting a level takes me at least 5 minutes, and usually may have to do it a few times. And completing levels takes about that too but you can go quicker as you dont need to be careful. What did you find when completing the game for time wise?

a few more suggestions after playing more:

boxclever is glitchy and that should be noted. It still will not unlock for me even after using the method mentioned. A few folks on TA also have issues with it. Required a reinstall to fix. I will be doing that once I get my last achievement.

u should note that getting three stars doesn't actually mean making no mistakes.. You just need to finish with 5 lives left. Thus is why purchasing the extra lives makes the games much easier. You can make a few mistakes (also in the later levels collecting the extra life pickups helps).

for this reason. I think.it would be much easier to purchase the first two lives first and not worrying about limosine. You wi definitely get it. In fact the last one costs 500k so it will come. I was able to purchase all three lives after getting 3 stars on 100 levels or so. I think you can update the roadmap to just say buy the lives when u get the cash. There is also one level between 91-99 (these levels are all cake) the is just a circle you drive around and there are 32 coins, a great one for boosting cash. Also there are several levels that are just downright undoable. I have also found the levels after 160 to 220 are not harder really. I skip most levels where the sole objectives are trailers. They are the bane of my existence. But yeah there are about 2 cake levels out of every 10.

Oh this was published. I didnt even see it submitted. But you didnt take any of my tips from a few posts ago. About adding that the Park 15 trailer achievement is glitchy and what to do if it happens.

Also that getting three stars does not mean you cant hit any vehicles, it means you must end with 5 or more lives (either buy the lives or you can pick them up in the level itself.

Also that purchasing the lives (the first two) makes the game a lot easier, and you shouldnt just hoard cash to get the limosouine achievement as it will definitely come as you progress through the game, even after buying the first two lives.

Roadmap could be more elaborative as well.

A guide should include every thing a gamer would need to know, so they really do not need to go anywhere else. Just my two cents.

Thanks for all the input Arsenic 17 about this game. It's no longer a Nokia exclusive so I look forward to playing it with your added tips.

Sure. This is by no means a very easy completion. But with buying the lives when you can it is bearable. otherwise, one mistake in any level and you are done. wish Evil would update .

Good luck.

Working on it right now. Some of the hit detections are a bit meh, but otherwise I'm having fun so far. I expect that fun to dissipate as the levels go on however, lol.

Great input Arsenic. I also prefer to see more information and clarifications.

A note on Box Clever. I've played up to level 63 and I hadn't unlocked it yet. I looked it up and found out that you have to play 21, so I kept doing that over and over. Eventually the achievement popped after parking 23 trailers there. You might not need to reinstall the game in order to pop it, just keep going at it instead of giving up at 15 ~thinking it won't unlock.
