Post Achievement Guide and Roadmap

ROADMAP:

Overview:

- Estimated achievement difficulty: 2/10
- Offline: 12/12 (200 )
- Online: 0/12 (0 )
- Approximate amount of time needed to 200 : 2 - 3 hours
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 22 (9 races and 13 gather races)
- Number of missable achievements: None
- Number of glitched achievements: None
- Do cheat codes disable achievements: No cheats
- Does difficulty effect achievements: You need to finish one race on Hard

Cro-Mag Rally is a short racing game set in the stone age. You control either Brog or Grag and you can choose between 9 tracks and a few vehicles.

Step #1 (Races):
Go to the options menu and set the difficulty to Hard. Finish one race at any position except for the last to unlock Old World Man. After that change the difficulty setting to easy and finish a (gather) race on every track at first place (Cro-Mag Man and New World Man). Make sure to choose a different vehicle type for every race (Did I Mention the Clear Coat?) and switch from Brog to Grag after 6 races (He's Going the Distance! and She's Going the Distance!).

Step #2 (Gather Races):
Collect each token (looks like a spearhead) on every track for Hungry Man and finish at least once not last to unlock Got the Cake... Ate it, Too. You need to play at least 12 1/2 gather races to collect 100 tokens.

Step #3 (Mop up):
You have to destroy all cactus plants on the Desert track (Omega Man), finish a race without using any power-ups (Keep it Clean), inflict damage to every opponent (Piltdown Man), stay in the air for more than 2 seconds (Nice View!) and finish Glacier in five minutes or less (Going for Speed) if you haven't done that during the races.

ACHIEVEMENT GUIDE:

Cro-Mag Man - 10
Finish a race in First Place

Go to the options menu and change the difficulty to easy. It is almost impossible to lose on easy because the AI drivers don't drive at full speed.

Old World Man - 10
Finish a race in First, Second, or Third Place on Hard difficulty

Change the difficulty to hard in the options menu and finish a race on any place except the last. I prefer the Trojan Horse vehicle because it has a good speed and is easy to control.

New World Man - 25
Finish in First Place on all tracks

After changing the difficulty on easy in the options menu, you won't have any trouble winning every race on each of the nine tracks. This can be done in races and gather races.

Got the Cake... Ate it, Too - 10
In a Gather game, collect all the tokens and come in First, Second, or Third

This sounds hard but is actually very easy. I did this on the Desert track. All the tokens are in plain sight and almost impossible to miss. You will most certainly get this on your first try.

Hungry Man - 20
Collect all the tokens from all the tracks in Gather races

You don't have to win the races! So don't worry about your position and take your time to collect every token on each track. Most are on the road but sometimes one or two are semi-hidden behind an obstacle. Make sure that it says "[Token symbol] x 8" at the result screen on the end of the race. Some people reported problems unlocking this achievement, so do it all in one sitting.

Did I Mention the Clear Coat? - 15
Complete a race with each vehicle type

Choose a different vehicle type for each race you have to win. That way you won't have to drive for races then necessary.


Nice View! - 10
Stay airborne for more than 2 seconds

Choose the Desert track and drive as slow as possible into one of the tornados. You have to almost stand still. The slower you are, the higher the tornado will throw you. It may take 2 or 3 tries to get the right speed.

Piltdown Man - 10
Inflict damage on every opponent in a single race

I did this while going for Omega Man. By the time I destroyed all cactus plants the three opponents had already finished the race. Collect a few bones and throw one at each enemy that is now standing still.

Keep it Clean - 10
Win a race without using any power-ups

Automatic activated power-ups like Sticky Tires don't count! Just win any race without touching the power-up symbol or the "direction-bone" on the right side of the screen. Don't worry about picking up power-ups. As long as you don't activate them, you'll unlock the achievement.

He's Going the Distance! - 20
Complete 6 races as Brog

Choose the male character for 6 races. You don't have to win.

She's Going the Distance! - 20
Complete 6 races as Grag

Choose the female character for 6 races. You don't have to win.

Collector's Edition - 15
Collect 100 tokens in Gather races

You can collect a maximum of 8 tokens per gather race. By the time you unlock Hungry Man, you've already collected at least 72 tokens. That's three and a half more gather races to go. The achievement unlocks mid-race after collecting the 100th token.

Going for Speed - 10
Finish Glacier in 5 minutes or less

You can try to get this legit by using the shortcut at the end of the track (simply turn left after the jump instead of driving the long slope) OR you can "dashboard" by pressing the "Home"-button in the middle of the second lap and wait around 20 seconds and then hit the "Back"-button and continue the race. All obstacles, power-ups and time will be reset, but you'll keep your current position and lap. It didn't work for me on the last lap, so make sure to do it on the second lap.

Omega Man - 15
Make the Desert track less... green

Destroy all cactus plants (the large AND small ones) on the Desert track. The achievement unlocks mid-race.

Please leave feedback and help me get rid of some spelling or grammatical errors before I submit the guide. English is not my mother language.

Something worth noting... I unlocked the achievement for coming in first on all tracks while I was doing a Gather game. Thus it would seem you could eliminate an entire playthrough by ONLY doing Gather games.

I mean, even on Easy you should have plenty of time to get all eight arrowheads and still manage to come in first. Even if not, that's extra grinding towards your 100 arrowheads there.

Thank you, I added your information for New World Man.

Does it work for Cro-Mag Man and Old World Man as well? Those say race in the description.

That I'm not sure on, I unlocked both those in the Race mode and unfortunately I have no way to test since you can't do other accounts on this phone.

Any brave soul that hasn't started the game care to test it out?

Another tip I found today to save anyone having to play this abomination more than they have to:

Instead of doing three more races for the 100 tokens, just use the same trick you use to get the Glacier in less than 5 minutes. Get eight tokens on a lap, lock your phone for 30 seconds, turn it back on and all the tokens will have respawned and collecting them again counts towards the 100. I got 24 tokens in a race using this!

I can confirm that it does work for "Cro-Mag Man". Don't know about "Old World Man" working on Gather, but can't see why it wouldn't, since the others do.
