I've written a partial guide that tackles all the tough Achievements over at WPCentral. After a while, I'll migrate the guide here, unless someone else writes a better one beforehand. In the meantime, I would appreciate any corrections and suggestions you can provide.

That's good starting point, but as someone mentioned in the comments over there, can you point out which achievements you only have one shot at unlocking? For example, the Half-Minute hacker one? Can you play the mini-game whenever you like after acquiring the pirate ship, or do you loose the ability to play the mini game at a certain point? Or, is there a point of no return where you are unable to grind out achievements?

Will investigate and update when we learn the answer to that. Half-minute hacker and Mech love, not war are the only two that might possibly be missable.

There are 3 save slots. I'm keeping my 3rd slot with a save before I get on the pirate ship.

And if you have a party member die in battle just hit the back button and go to main menu then resume game and you start where you were before the battle.

if you make a save file prior to entering the final dungeon you wont be able to miss any achievements (except for the final boss one obviously)

Arghh was looking forward to this, but reading up on some of these achievements sound like its going to take more time than I'm wanting to spend on my phone. I was hoping for just some story related stuff and then game over. Going to turn into a no buy for me. Might burn through my NES version for old times sake.

looking at that list, the only missable achievement appears to be beating the game in under 8 hours. the pirate ship never goes away so that one shouldn't be missable and the warmech always hangs out on the same floor with Tiamat. The only way these would be missable is if you entered the final dungeon without any way of leaving (unless they have added that in recent versions).

Found these "speed run" videos. Wonder if they would be a useful reference for [Fast to the Finish]

Labyrinth of Time Achievement is the only one that seems to be too frustrating

The speedrun video I linked is probably more useful as it's from the more updated PSOne version. Too bad nobody did it with the PSP or iPhone versions!

Looks like a good informative guide. No road map though, what would you estimate the difficulty and time for 200?

Any guesses if the Gil achievement is lifetime gain or must have the Gil on hand

Has to be gil on hand, I've confirmed that personally. I spent tens of thousands of gil and when I had a balance of 90,000 it didn't pop. Once it hit 100,000 the achievement popped straightaway.

Changed the title so that it fit the description of the thread better. If you do end up doing a guide it can be changed back (except now you do not have any reserves and will have to do another thread).
