Enigmo

ROADMAP

-Minimum playthroughs: 1
-Offline: 13/13 (200)
-Online: 0/13 (0)
-Missable Achievements: 6 (see guide)
-Unobtainable Achievements: 0
-Does difficulty affect achievements: No difficulty option
-Cheats disable achievements: No cheats
-Glitchy achievements: 1 (No Use Crying...see description)
-Extra equipment needed: Windows Phone 7 or 8

Introduction
Enigmo is a physics-based puzzle game in which you direct falling drops of different liquids into like-colored containers using a variety of different objects which can be drug into the level and then rotated. The drops can bounce, drip, and splash into the colored containers, with the level being complete when 40 drops of each color are collected. There are 50 total levels which become more complex and expansive as you progress. Currently the game is listed at $2.99 in the Windows Phone Store.

Step 1: Complete all levels using a guide (paying attention to missables!)
Play through all 50 levels of the game using a guide. This will allow you to earn the most points possible and make getting the 250k and 500k points achievements a breeze. You should play the first 20 levels of the game in a single session (without exiting the game in any way) to unlock the "Dedicated Dropper" achievement. As you progress further and reach Level 28, make sure to complete it without using 4 pieces for several missable achievements. See the guide for more information.

Step 2: Grind to 1 million drops
After completing all other achievements, you will still need to grind 1 million drops spilled for the last achievement. This will take around 25 additional hours. Luckily you can just leave your phone unattended while you sleep to earn this, or at very least just occasionally tap your screen while you do something else. See the guide for more information.

Conclusion
If you pay attention to the missable achievements, you will only need to play through the game once. You will definitely want to use a guide to decrease the time it will take you to complete each level, but also to earn you the highest score. Afterwards, you will only need to grind out 1 million drops spilled, which can be done while doing nothing and setting you screen time-out to "Never" (if you can on your device). With that said, you can complete the bulk of the game in less than 5 hours, but will need to grind drops for about 20-30 hours.

GUIDE

Drop in the Bucket - 5
Complete the first level.

See "Mad Scientist."

Jr Technician - 10
Complete the first 10 levels.

See "Mad Scientist."

Lab Assistant - 20
Complete the first 25 levels.

See "Mad Scientist."

Mad Scientist - 30
Complete all 50 levels.

Enigmo is unique in the puzzler genre because it does not let you select individual levels to play, even after beating them. You start at Level 1 and progress linearly through the game, saving your progress and moving on after completing the last level.

Just start at the beginning and progress through all the levels. You should be using a guide for each level as that will give you the most score in the least amount of time in order to work towards the "Respectable" and "Enigmaster" achievements. Follow the guides below.

Efficient - 5
Complete a level with 1 or more unused pieces.

See "Were Those Important."

Spare Parts - 15
Complete a level with 2 or more unused pieces.

See "Were Those Important."

Were Those Important - 25
Complete a level with 4 or more unused pieces.

*MISSABLE* These three achievements require that you complete a level with a certain amount of unused objects. They are stackable, so leaving four objects unused will unlock ALL three achievements. The best spot to obtain these on is Level 28. See the 0:13 mark of the video below. Complete the level without using the any of the 4 sponges.

Make sure to attempt this achievement while working through the game when you reach Level 28. If you complete the level, and then save, you will have to replay all the levels up to Level 28 in order to be able to attempt this achievement again. This is because there is no level select in the game.


Better Than Nothing - 10
Finish a level with between 0 and 100 bonus points.

This achievement requires that you finish the level scoring between 0 and 100 bonus points. Bonus points are what you are awarded when you complete the level, and are shown in the top right corner of the screen. Each level has a maximum number of points possible which depletes as you take time to complete the level. Essentially, you just need to complete the level so that the shrinking score in the top tight corner is less than 100 and greater than 0. This requires some luck and also good timing. The easiest level to attempt this on is Level 1. You do not have to worry about missing this achievement, because you can always just start up a new game at Level 1. Use the only object you get to direct the drops near the mouth of the container, but not in. Just leave it like that, holding your finger on the object to keep it from moving. When the bonus score reaches around 750 points, rotate the object and direct the drops into the container as fast as you can. If you got the timing right, 40 drops will fill the container, completing the level, and your score will be in the right range. This will likely take several tries to get the timing and method exactly right. Just keep at it.

Dedicated Dropper - 20
Play 20 consecutive levels in one session.


*MISSABLE* This achievement requires that you complete 20 consecutive levels without exiting the game at all. This should be done on the first 20 levels of the game, as they are the shortest. You should be able to complete these 20 levels (using guides) in around 1 hour. After you complete each level, hit "Save and Continue" to move on. Make sure you never exit out of the game at all, accidentally hit the Start or Bing buttons, or let your phone's screen lock. These will all void this achievement. You also can not hit the Back button after completing a level as it will take you to the Main Menu. It is suggested you set your screen timeout to the maximum your phone allows before attempting this, just in case you take too long looking at a solution. As soon as you complete the 20th level in a row, the achievement will unlock.

Drop and Give Me Sixty - 20
Play for an hour.

This achievement simply requires that you CUMULATIVELY play for one hour. Depending on exactly how fast you play, it should unlock between Level 20 and 30 for most people. It will pop as soon as 1 hour is reached.

Respectable - 15
Score 250,000 points.

See "Enigmaster."

Enigmaster - 15
Score 500,000 points.

*MISSABLE* Each level has a maximum number of points to earn, which is shown at the start of the level in the top right corner of the screen. As time passes while you are working to finish the level, the score depletes. Once you complete the level, you are awarded the current score that is shown. If you take too long, you can earn no points on a level. The score you earn from each level is added to your total from all of the levels. Speed is the key here. The faster you complete the level, the more score you will earn.

These achievements require that you earn a cumulative score of 250,000 and 500,000 in a single playthrough (one save slot). These are both technically missable, but by using solution guides it will be hard to miss these. In completing all 50 levels, you will most likely earn 1 million score or more and will probably surpass the 500,000 point mark around Level 30. To make absolutely sure (though it is unnecessary) that you earn these achievements, you can replay a level that you think you can go quicker on by not hitting "Save and Continue" after the level, and returning to the Main Menu with the Back button.

No Use Crying - 10
Spill over 1,000,000 drops!

This achievement is awarded when you spill a total of 1,000,000 drops in the game, across all attempts of all levels in all of your playthroughs. This achievement is a little ridiculous considering how little content there is in the game. Since only the water (blue) drops count, it will take around 30 hours to reach 1 million drops (roughly 10 drops fall every second).

With that said, there are two options, depending if your Windows Phone device has the option to set the screen time-out to "Never" or not. To check, go to Settings>Lock Screen>Screen times out after.
  • If you CAN select "Never", you are in good shape. This means that you can grind this achievement by leaving the game running in a level while you are sleeping or doing anything else. For this step specifically, make sure your device is plugged into the wall to charge.
  • If you CANT select "Never" and your maximum time-out is 3 or 5 minutes, this achievement is slightly more frustrating and time consuming to you. Set the time-out to the maximum time. You will need to start up a new game at Level 1, then let the drops spill while you passively touch the screen every so often to keep your screen from timing out. After you have spilled as much as you want to in a single session, you must finish the level and hit "Save and Continue" to lock-in your progress. Continue your spilling sessions through the levels until the achievement unlocks.
After your period of grinding, you must hit "Save and Continue" to save your progress from that session. If you accidentally hit the Bing or Start buttons, or let your screen lock, you will lose ALL grinding progress, as this game does not have the fast app resume capability. The achievement will unlock mid-level whenever 1 million drops is reached. Keep all of this in mind when spilling those drops!

*GLITCH WARNING* This achievement is a tad glitchy. For some reason, some folks just cant get the achievement to unlock. Techniques that work for some people don't work for others. Some claim the drops can be done across multiple save files, while others claim it can only be done on one. You may even need to completely reinstall the game to earn this. The best method to go about earning this achievement is to reinstall the entire game after earning all of the other achievements but this one. Then start your grinding fresh on a new save file. This should prevent it from glitching on you.
