Achievement Guide and Roadmap

Banner coming soon!


This Achievement Guide and Roadmap was written by Fuzzy Dem0n and myself. Special thanks to Judge_Bergan for helping out with this guide in the Greenbook!

Overview:
  • Estimated achievement difficulty: 1/10
  • Offline: 7 (200)
  • Online: 0 (0)
  • Approximate amount of time to 200: 10+ Hours (with clock changing glitch) 4+ Weeks (if you wait for tasks to be done in real time)
  • Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1
  • Number of missable achievements: None
  • Do cheat codes disable achievements? No Cheat Codes
  • Does difficulty affect achievements?: No Difficulty
  • Glitchy achievements: "Ding!", "Lady Helper", "Air Freshener"
  • Unobtainable achievements: None
  • Extra Equipment Needed: Windows Phone 7/8 devices


Introduction:
Welcome to Bug Village! This game has a total of 7 achievements for a total of 200 and it is FREE. If you’re wondering what Bug Village is, the best way to describe it would be a copy of FarmVille. The game consists of building homes for your Ants and Bees while keeping junk piles for your ants to scavenge and flowers for your bees to collect nectar from. For each flower or junk pile you complete, you will gain acorns. Acorns are your form of currency in this game; it is what you use to restock junk piles, buy food to keep your insects working, buy decorations, and to build more homes to obtain more workers. Each task in this game takes anywhere from 5 minutes all the way up to 48 hours. The more time a task takes, the more acorns you will obtain. The game will run in the background while you wait for these tasks to be completed. Unfortunately, Bug Village is buggy in more ways than one; it has a number of glitches that you should be aware of before playing this game. These glitches can cause achievements to not unlock when they should (like "Ding!" for example), not make pests appear (thus not letting you get achievements like "Lady Helper" and "Air Freshener" without starting over), game crashes and more! Glu Mobile has released a patch, but the issues have still happened afterward.

Step 1: Building Your Village
The game will start off with a tutorial on how to play the game and will help you start your village. Tap your bug 25 times, and then start saving up acorns so you can feed your bugs, build more houses and more piles and flowers. Once you have at least 2,000 extra coins to spare, go into the shop and buy 50 Small Fence. Place them wherever you would like, but make sure you remove them after the "Great Decorator" achievement unlocks to avoid some glitches. See the "Deleting Items" section of this roadmap for more information on this. Keep building homes until you have 20 bugs living in your village, and then start concentrating on saving acorns. The achievements you will obtain in this step are:
  • Bug Breeder
  • Bug Tapper
  • Great Decorator

Step 2: Ladybugs and Stinky Bugs
This step should be done while working on Step 1 (and Step 3). You will have have to take care of Ladybugs and Stinky Bugs 100 times. Sadly, both of these achievement have glitches associated with them. The Stinky Bugs may make you auto-quit your game if you have hit 100 or crash your game. For some reason, both types of bugs may stop appearing in your game. If this happens to you, first check everything in your village closely and move items to see if they are hidden. View this thread for more information on checking your village. If you do not see any while searching and they stop appearing entirely, you will eventually have to start over. Please see Step 4 for more information on starting over. The achievements that should be completed in this step (if they do not glitch) are:
  • Lady Helper
  • Air Freshener

Step 3: Saving Acorns and Playing the Game
Now, it is time to save as many acorns as possible and just keep playing the game. You will need to save 300,000 acorns at once which can be very time consuming and boring. Just keep playing until you finally get enough acorns and aim to reach Level 25 in the process for the "Ding!" achievement. Note that this achievement may unlock earlier or later than Level 25, so just keep playing until the achievement finally unlocks. The achievements obtained in this step are:
  • Acorn Ace
  • Ding!

If you did not have the glitch issues present earlier in Step 2, congratulations on your new completion! If you were unfortunate enough to have glitches, see the next step explaining what you should do.

Step 4: Retry Step 2 with Time Glitch (If the achievements glitched on you)
This step is for those who could not get the Ladybugs and/or Stinky Bugs to appear or had other issues with those bugs. Make sure you have finished all other achievements before doing this step since you will lose all progress you currently have in the game. When you are ready, remove the game from your phone, and re-install it. Now, go into the game and finish the tutorial. Once you finish that and take care of the Ladybug and Stinky Bug in your village, exit out of your game. You will be performing a Time Glitch to make sure that both bugs appear when they are supposed to. Please view this thread to see exactly what must be done to get these achievements without the glitch. Make sure that your phone is not set at a future date when these achievements unlock! If you unlock them with your phone set in the future, you will not get the achievement until the future date.

Deleting Items:
You may need to delete items after achieving “Great Decorator” as it, or if you have too many items on the map at one time, will cause the game to glitch. One result of having too many items on the map is that you will get random black screens. To stop this from happening, open up the tap for the item you would like to delete. To delete an item, open the decorations tab, then click on a decoration that is on the map. A purple box will be above it, and clicking the box will delete the item. Be aware that doing this will not give you acorns that were spent back.

Time Glitch:
Some tasks in this game can take many hours, or even a few days, to complete; a way around this is the time glitch. To do this, once you have started a task click the “Windows/Home” button. This allows the game to run in the background. Now go to “Settings” > “Date+Time”. If “Set automatically" is turned ON, set it to OFF. From here, you will see: Time Zone, Date, and Time. Click “Time” and set the hours ahead the same amount of hours that the task or tasks take. Now go to the Xbox Live tab and pick Big Village. If you just click the back button and do not go through the Xbox Live tab, the glitch will not work properly. Make sure that you do not unlock achievements at a future date because you will not be able to get that achievement until that future date occurs.

Conclusion:
Bug Village will take you at least a month to complete if you play it legit. You can use the time glitch to vastly improve the speed of the game, just be careful of the time on your phone before you unlock achievements. The game is an extremely easy and free completion, so there should not be any difficulty unless you come across a glitch. Even though the game is very glitchy, and some glitches affect achievements, you should still be able to complete the game. The full 200 is obtainable and easy to get if willing to invest time.

Total Awards: 23 (more» ...)
Acorn Ace 40
Collect 300,000 Acorns.

This achievement is NOT cumulative; you must have 300,000 acorns at one time. Acorns can be earned by helping Ladybugs, completing missions on the right hand side of the screen, and finishing tasks with your bugs. Finishing piles with your ants or flowers with your bees is going to be how you will earn a vast majority of your acorns needed. The large junk piles that take 24 hours and the orange flowers that take 48 hours give the most amounts of acorns. Keep raiding junk piles and collecting from flowers and this achievement will come over time. It is best to go for this achievement after you have the "Bug Breeder" achievement since you should have enough bugs to help you earn income faster by then. While grinding for this achievement, try not to spend any acorns except for when feeding your bugs. This will help you earn the achievement quicker since you would not be buying anything unnecessary.

Bug Breeder 30
Attract 20 Bugs In The Village.

You must have 20 bugs in your village at one time. To get more bugs, you must simply build and upgrade the homes. A new bug will appear once your building or upgrade is finished. This achievement includes both ants and bees. If you loose track of the number of bugs in you village, just click the picture of the red ant in the top left corner of the screen. The left number is the amount of bugs working and the right side number is the total amount of that kind of bug in the village.

Ding! 40
Reach Level 25.

XP can be gained in many ways. Some of these ways are getting rid of Ant Lions and Stinky Bugs, helping Ladybugs, completing missions on the right hand side of the screen, buying decorations, and finishing tasks with your bugs. Finishing tasks with the piles and flowers all have different amount of XP earned when they are completed depending on the size and time it takes to finish them. Over time, this achievement will unlock; just keep playing!

Note: This achievement is extremely glitchy! It can unlock at a range of different levels. People have reported this unlocking as early as level 17 and others have had to reach past level 26 before it unlocked.

Lady Helper 20
Help 100 Ladybugs.

Ladybugs will appear about every 45 min to 1 hour. You have to look around the map to find them. They will be on their backs. To help them, just simply tap on them and they will fly away. If you do the time glitch, just set the clock ahead 4 hours, then go back into game and help the ladybug. Keep repeating the glitch as many times as needed. If you use the time glitch, make sure you do not unlock your achievement in the future.

Note: There is a glitch that can cause the Ladybugs to stop appearing in the game. If this happens to you, please check your village very carefully and consult with this thread. If you do not find any in your search and they still do not show up, you will eventually need to start the game over. Please see the Roadmap and this thread for information on what to do in this situation.

Bug Tapper 10
Tap 25 Bugs.

This will probably be one of your first achievements that you will unlock. This can been done on the same bug 25 times. When you click on a bug, they will do an action. Once they are done, click them again, and they should perform another action. Make sure you are doing this on one of your ants or bees and not one of the Ladybugs, Stinky Bugs, or Ant Lions. Those bugs do not count toward this achievement.

Air Freshener 20
Get Rid Of 100 Stinky Bugs.

This achievement is similar to the "Lady Helper" achievement. Stinky Bugs will appear every 4-5 hours. To get rid of a Stinky Bug, you must tap them 3 different times. After each tap, the Stinky Bug will move to another location. After 3 taps, they will fall over and disappear. This will count as getting rid of one Stinky Bug.

Note: There are glitches related to the Stinky Bugs. One glitch can cause the Stinky Bugs to stop appearing in the game. If this happens to you, please check your village very carefully for them and consult with this thread. If you do not find any in your search and they still do not show up, you will eventually need to start the game over. You will also need to start your game over if you run into another Stinky Bug glitch. This glitch happens when you are get rid of your 100th Stinky Bug. Instead of getting the achievement, your game will crash. Please see the Roadmap and this thread for information on what to do if these glitches happen to you.


Great Decorator 40
Place 50 Decorations.

Place 50 decorations anywhere in the game, ranging from fences, leaves, chips, chairs, and more. You can get this achievement by placing the same decoration 50 times. The easiest way to get this achievement is to buy 50 Small Fence. This method will only cost you 2,000 acorns total and they are the cheapest decoration to buy in the store.

Note: This achievement is not glitched, but upon unlocking this achievement, or putting 50 decorations on the map, the game will start to glitch. You will get random black screens; to stop this from happening after you place 50 decorations, simply delete them off the map. You can delete decorations by tapping on the item, and the hitting the purple box above it. You will not be refunded any acorns if you delete an item from your village.

That is why I put a few warnings about the time glitch in this guide. You have probably unlocked them at a future date which is why they won't update. Windows Phone games in general can have issues with updating achievements sometimes so this is always something to be careful of as well.

Regarding the time, this guide says 4+ weeks, the plus sign indicates that this can take much longer than four weeks. The longer you play, the less XP you get doesn't make any sense. The reason why it takes longer to level up as your level increases is because more XP is required for higher levels.
