Before I continue a big Thank You to Turdboi and his Misses for a lot of information as well to Hawaiian for the 100 diamond Chain Combo.

There are five (5) different modes to play in this game, however, we only need to be concerned with three (3) of them for the purpose of getting all the achievements.

The basic idea of the game, if you have never played it, is to collect the minimum of diamonds to unlock the exit and get out of the level without running into various monsters or being crushed by boulders.

1) Arcade Mode: There are 100 levels in Arcade Mode to complete. This can take roughly 8 hours to complete depending on your skill level. I finished the first 25 levels in close to 2 hours.

2) Puzzle Mode: There are 25 levels in Puzzle Mode to complete. This will take roughly 45 minutes to complete depending on your skill level. (Thanks to Turdboi).

3) Retro Mode: There are 25 levels in Retro Mode to complete. This will take roughly 1 hour 30 minutes to complete depending on your skill level. (Thanks to Turdboi).

There have been issues with game saving and coming back at another time. I, myself and others have all experienced this. The happens when you suddenly exit to dashboard or shut your Xbox off when you are done with this game. The solution is to go back to the main menu and choose the option "return to game library". (Thanks to Ronron1 for the tip).

[x360a would like to thank rdrunr89 for this Roadmap]



Double KO15
Crush 2 Monsters using a single Boulder in any Cave in Arcade Mode. 

Basically what it says. Using a boulder, crush two monsters at one time. I was able to complete this on Level 18 of Arcade Mode. There is a spot on the right where one monster is moving left to right and another is up and down. Timing is the key here, but that was the first spot I had the best opportunity. There is another spot earlier on, however, when I tried it on the other level, I was not able to push the boulder over on to the monsters.

Great Escape25
Clear all Caves of Arcade Mode. 

There are 100 caves in Arcade mode. They open 5 at a time. When you complete 4 of them, the next 5 will unlock. This may take approximately 8+ hours to complete depending on your skill level.

Cogito ergo sum20
Clear all Caves of Puzzle Mode. 

There are 25 levels in Puzzle Mode. This may take approximately 45 minutes to complete depending on your skill level. (Thanks to Turdboi for the info).

You are surrounded10
Entrap all Amoebas in any Arcade Mode cave. 

This will unlock once you have trapped the Amoeba. You will know it is trapped because it will turn completely to diamonds.

To trap the Amoebas, use the rocks that are fixed in place. You need to link them up using the Moveable Boulders (the amoebas will take over dirt turning it green but can't get passed stone/rock) This can be done in Retro Mode as well. (Thanks again to Turdboi and his Misses for the explanation).

Here is a good explanation of how to get this achievement along with Prison Warden: The first, best and easiest Level with Amoebas is Cave E (in Retro Mode). Do it once for the You are Surrounded Achievement and repeat Cave E four more times t o get Prison Warden. (Thanks to BPS21 who reported this on another website and DevilCats for posting it here).

Millionaire15
Collect a total of 10.000 Diamonds in Arcade Mode. 

While it looks like the number is 10 with a decimal point, this is really 10,000 diamonds. This is cumulative throughout Arcade Mode and considering you usually need somewhere between 16 and 70 diamonds to collect for each levels 'exit' to unlock, you should be close to this by the end of the 100 levels. Unfortunately, there is no way to see how many diamonds you have collected unless you write down the number at the end of each level. If you die on a level, as long as you let it go to the point where you can restart, the diamonds you previously collected will be added to your count. Also, you can use Puzzle and Retro mode and those diamonds count as well. (Thanks to Turdboi and his Misses for the confirmation that it is cumulative through all 3 game modes).

Verminator20
Crush 100 Monsters in Arcade Mode. 

This is cumulative throughout Arcade Mode. The first couple of levels don't have any Monsters in them. Basically, crush Monsters with the rocks or even diamonds can fall on them. This achievement will unlock in game.

Rock Slide10
Crush 10 Monsters in Arcade Mode. 

See Verminator. I had this by Level 5 of Arcade.

Retro Guy20
Clear all Caves of Retro Mode. (2) 

There are 25 levels in Retro Mode, labeled A-Y. This may take approximately 1 hour 30 minutes to complete depending on your skill level. (Thanks to Turdboi for the info).

Lazy Guy15
Take a break in Cave 25 of Arcade Mode. (1) 

When you get to Level 25 of Arcade Mode, just stand there and do nothing and let the clock run out. Achievement is yours. (Thanks to Turdboi for the info).

Prison Warden15
Entrap all Amoebas in any 5 caves of the Arcade Mode. 

See You are Surrounded for the way to trap Amoebas. You can trap the Amoeba and have it turn to diamonds and still die and it will count for you.

Mr. Shiny15
Remove 1.000 tiles of Dirt in Arcade Mode! 

This is by far the easiest achievement. You can get this by Level 5 of Arcade Mode. Since the first few levels are real easy, you should be able to clear out all the dirt prior to exiting the level. I believe I got this achievement even though I died a couple of times on the same level.

Chain Reactor20
Create a Chain Combo of at least 100 Diamonds in Arcade Mode. (1) 

You have to get 100 diamonds without the counter resetting. There is a spot by your score showing you how many you got in a row. Select cave 75 or 98 in Arcade Mode to get 100+ chain combo easily. (Mahalo to Hawaiian for the information).

An alternate way of getting the 100 diamonds can be done if you know what you are doing. You can get it early by letting the amoeba take over 100 spaces then go and collect all gems in a row. (Thanks again to Turdboi and his Misses for the alternate suggestion).
