Achievement Guide & Roadmap

Constructive criticism is appreciated as this is my first attempt at a roadmap/guide.

Road Map:

- Estimated Achievement difficulty: 3/10 (1/10 if using video guides)
- Approximate Time: 7-10 hours
- Offline: 20
- Online: None!
- Missable Achievements: None
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1+
- Glitched achievements: None


Step One: Adventure Mode

Simple, start up adventure mode, and aim for getting 3 stars on every level. Most levels are fairly straightforward, and the "solution" to getting 3 stars is obvious from the start. Others may require a second time playing to tweak your strategy, or to try a new one. Alternatively you can simply check out some video guides (this was a PC game) on Youtube. Any guide will work, even the "expert" version, but here is a link to a playlist as a suggested starting point http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAD396102F899D7C4. Note: These are NOT my videos, credit should be given to the author of each video.

Step Two: Mop up Misc. Achievements

You may find yourself having achieved some of the miscellaneous achievements on the way to 3 starring all levels. Otherwise, now is the time to mop up Kingdom's Cornucopia, Clean Sweep!, Unsurpassable Accuracy, Skilled Financier, and Global Materialization. You will also be loading up a challenge level for No Enhancements Happiness, as there was no level I found in the regular mode where this could be achieved. See individual guides for information on these achievements.

Step Three: Grind

At this point all you should have left are the point related achievements and 500 Buildings (See guide). Engineering Guru has to be unlocked by the end of the story if you have three starred all levels, however you probably only have about 4 million points at the end of the story. There are two options, either play through on expert mode for a challenge, or grind out a quick/easy level to rack up the points as quick as you can get them. For the quick way, load up level 58 and simply finish it as fast as possible, eventually netting you Bachelor of Architecture, and Master of Urban Development (see guide for fastest method).


Marshy Lowlands Gold - 5
For completing all levels of the Marshy Lowlands with three stars

See "Trembling Earth Gold"

Western Artic Gold - 5
For completing all levels of the Marshy Lowlands with three stars.

See "Trembling Earth Gold"

Foothills Gold - 5
For completing all levels of the Foothills with three stars.

See "Trembling Earth Gold"

Isle of Mystery Gold - 5
For completing all levels of the Isle of Mystery with three stars.

See "Trembling Earth Gold"

Mountain Valley Gold - 5
For completing all levels of Mountain Valley with three stars.

See "Trembling Earth Gold"

Palm Coast Gold - 10
For completing all levels of the Palm Coast with three stars.

See "Trembling Earth Gold"

Wastelands Gold - 10
For completing all levels of the Wastelands with three stars.

See "Trembling Earth Gold"

Valley of the Nymphs Gold - 10
For completing all levels of the Valley of the Forest Nymphs with three stars.

See "Trembling Earth Gold"

Eastern Arctic Gold - 10
For completing all levels of the Eastern Arctic with three stars.

See "Trembling Earth Gold"

Trembling Earth Gold - 15
For completing all levels of the Trembling Earth with three stars.

Relatively simple, complete each of the levels with three stars in each area and these achievements will unlock. A tip for each level (the game gives you this constantly) is to look at your goals and then survey the level before you make your first move. The timer for the stars does not start until you make a move, so you can make a plan based on your resources and goals.

I personally found most areas fairly easy, with only the occasional challenge/puzzle that I simply couldn't figure out right away. Either try a different tactic, or if you get frustrated, simply follow a lovely video guide. This playlist is just a suggestion, as any video guide should give you an idea on how to succeed at a particular level http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAD396102F899D7C4. I only required a video guide on level 38, so I can't say how accurate each guide will be, but the random ones I checked all matched up.

Kingdom's Cornucopia - 10
For accumulating 20,000 food during any level.

See "Skilled Financier"

Engineering Guru - 5
Over 500,000 game points earned.

As close to a "story" related achievement as you can get. You get varying amounts of points per level (based on number of stars), and the later areas offer more points per star. In the final area (Trembling Earth) 3 gold stars are worth 100,000 points. I don't believe it is possible to complete the entire game and not have this achievement. However if you have managed to do this, simply work towards getting three stars on each level and it will unlock before too long.

Bachelor of Architecture - 10
Over 6,000,000 game points earned.

See "Master of Urban Development"

Master of Urban Development - 15
Over 10,000,000 game points earned.

By the end of Adventure mode, I had about 4 million points. You can either play Expert mode (assuming you have 3 starred all levels), try some Challenge levels, or simply grind out the points.

For the grind, load up level 58. This is a fairly straightforward level where you simply have to free the workers and build the lava levee. The video guide I found actually took a LOT longer than the way I did it, so I will lay out the steps and try to upload pictures later if they are needed. Here is how to do it!

1. Locate the path to the glutton (bottom of the screen), you will need to clear two trees to get to him. The first tree is directly to the left of the broken bridge (bottom right). Have one worker get these two trees.

2. At the same time, have your other worker open the treasure chest that is in the smoke of the volcano. This chest contains enough materials/gold to finish the level! So collect it all!

3. Have one worker feed the glutton, and the other worker pay the pirate.

4. As soon as both paths are opened, begin repairs on the lava levee. Then click to have the broken bridge repaired.

5. Wait the 25-30 seconds for the level to finish, gain 100,000 points, then click restart until the achievements pop!

Clean Sweep! - 15
For accumulating exactly 100 gold, 100 wood, 100 food, and 100 happiness during any level.

The first level where this can be accomplished is level 15 (first area of Isle of Mystery). As it implies, you have to have 100 of each type of material and happiness at once. The achievement pops right away in the level. Although this could happen during your normal playthrough, likely it will not.

The strategy to get this is as follows, load up level 15 then follow these steps:

1. Start out by destroying all 4 banks. Do NOT collect any materials that drop from these.

2. Collect 250 food from the trees (10 collections @ 25 food a piece). Do this while the banks are being destroyed.

3. Build 4 Cabins, and add gardens to 2 of them.

4. Collect one time from a cabin without the garden. This will give you 100 gold. Cabins with a garden will give you 150!

5. This should leave you with 100 of everything and the achievement will pop right away!

Unsurpassable Accuracy - 15
For whitewashing your opponents in the snowball fight (win each round).

There are two levels where this can be accomplished: Level 8 and Level 52. As a part of the level requirements you will build a snow fort then participate in the snowball fight. You can skip the snowball fight, but why would you achievement hunter?

The fight is a best of three scenario, so for this achievement you will have to win the first two rounds. The game explains how to play, but simply click/tap on the opposing team when they pop out of the snow fort to hit them before they hit you. There is no real strategy to this, simply click them as fast as you can. I can say that clicking/tapping everywhere in hopes of snagging them as they pop up does not work, as the achievement implies, you have to be accurate and fast. If you don't get this on either level, simply load back up and play again.

500 Buildings - 15
For constructing 500 buildings.

To my knowledge this has to be 500 items from the "building" category, and does not include houses. There also is no achievement tracker in the game, so how many buildings you have built by the end of Adventure mode will vary depending on your play style and how many levels were replayed.

For me to grind out the last amount of buildings needed I loaded up level 62. This level has less setup required than level 63, so that is why I chose it. I simply built a bank and a market, and the rest of the plots I built mansions as upgraded as I could. Once I had a decent amount of money, and no longer needed the food from the market I started building then demolishing it. I then started destroying the bank, and rebuilding it as a sawmill or market, and eventually destroyed a mansion and kept three spots cycling between being built and being destroyed. The achievement pops as soon as you build your 500th building. If time runs out, simply restart this level & process over until you get it!


Skilled Financier - 15
For accumulating 300,000 gold on a level.

For these three achievements you need to have the required amount in your inventory. You can't get a portion, use it, then accumulate the balance, e.g. you can't get 10,000 food, use it then get 10,000 more. You need 20,000 at one time.

Many levels would be good for these achievements, however if you do not have them by the end of the game, simply load up level 63. The goal would be to build 5 mansions as upgraded as you can make them with the materials you have and a bank. Keep collecting money until you get to 300,000 gold. Then tear down the bank and one mansion, and build a Sawmill and a Market. Buy the required food and wood and the achievements will all pop as soon as you hit the required number. You can easily get all three of these before time runs out in this level.


No Enhancements Happiness - 10
For achieving a happiness rating above 800, on any level, without urban enhancements.

I could not find a regular level where this could be accomplished. However this can be done fairly easily in the Bonus Challenge mode. I recommend doing this after completing Adventure mode so these instructions will make better sense. I will not give step by step as it will take too long, but the basic goal you are looking for is to have 800 happiness without having any enhancement. The way this can be accomplished is by adding gardens to houses, and the Dovecote building.

Load up Bonus levels, then pick level 6. Do not worry about the statue that is the goal, it does not add to your happiness total until you "free" it from the pirate, which also ends the level. The goal you are looking to accomplish is to have 4 houses with gardens (there are only 4 spots in this level where you can have them), then have 3 of the 4 remaining locations to be Dovecotes with all the doves. Thus you will have 200 happiness from the houses (4 gardens x 50 happiness), plus you will have another 600 happiness from the dovecotes with all the doves purchased (3 dovecotes x 5 doves x 4 houses x 10 happiness). Thus netting you the 800 happiness required. The achievement pops right away in game.

Global Materialization - 10
For accumulating 20,000 wood during any level.

See "Skilled Financier"

Thanks! Wasn't a terribly hard game, and I thought it was fun too! I figured pointing out the particular levels for a few of the misc. achievements was probably the big deal of the guide, along with what level to grind.

I did go and submit the colored tiles. Hopefully I did that correctly!

There are, but 63 is the easiest. The problem you have is running out of time on other levels. The Wood and Food can probably be achieved on the last level in several areas, as usually you are going for a longer goal, and thus have more time.

However the money becomes difficult as you don't have the mansions until much later in the game, and those are your big money winners. You probably have to get into the upper levels to really have a shot at this one, due to time constraints.

Has anyone managed to get "Unsurpassable Accuracy" on the first snowball fight? I've tried it a handful of times and I always get destroyed on the second round. The first and third rounds are easy, but the second doesn't seem possible. Unless my reaction times are a lot slower than I think they are, which is possible.

Sweet Guide. Definitely a great help for Clean Sweep! It never occurred to me to not collect the gold... DOH!

Yeah, I got it on the first one. I also did it again on the second fight just to rub their noses in it.

However I did have to do the first fight over a few times. Until I got further in the game I didn't even know there was a second level where a snowball fight occurred.

I have heard from friends that using the tablet (I have a desktop w/mouse), it can be a very frustrating achievement. Possibly one of the few times where having a mouse could make it easier, if nothing else for the accuracy.

I know Minioger says tapping everywhere in hopes of hitting them does not work and it probably doesn't but no matter how fast I was I always get beaten in the second round. Some of them are just too fast to be hit. So after about ten attempts here is what I did to finally get it. As soon as I hit one or two I would then switch sides give it half a second and then through two or three in a row but not too fast as you run out of snowballs so when they did pop up I could still have an attempt and more often then not I would hit one or two or even a third in rapid succession. First round got a perfect and still had 60% health after the second round. Thank god that is done. Was beginning to proper stress me.

Also, for those who don't know if you fail in the second round, exit game and then go back to the level and continue. You will start on round 1 again. Saves a couple of minutes at least.

Nice tip, I'll have to try that. I've been using my tracker pad, hopefully when I plug my mouse in it will make it easier.

I just got Unsurpassable Accuracy. I spent close to 2 hours trying to get it using the touch screen on my tablet; no dice. Plugged in mouse, and got it on the third try. A mouse makes this achievement 100x easier! Kudos to anybody who managed to do it using a touch screen.
