Introduction:
Welcome to Home Run Stars! This game is a surprisingly enjoyable baseball game. The game features three unique stadiums that each have their own funky twist to it as you try to rack up points by hitting the different targets. The achievements are all fairly straightforward and most will be obtained by accident through the games main mode League Play. The achievement "Almost Famous" is glitched for the majority of people and that may cause you some frustrations, however there are ways to get around the glitch; however it will take extra time, and luck.


The Ins and Outs:
I just want to explain to you how to game works and the insights of it, since the game does a terrible job at that. The point of the game in a nutshell is earn as high of a score as you can to defeat your opponents. Each item at the back of the stadium is a target, the further away the target the more points it will give you for hitting it. There are also multiplier targets, which are flat squares with a baseball of them, if you can hit them, they will create a multiplier from 2-5 on a certain target; hit the target, and it will multiply your hit by that amount giving you a lot of points. There are also glowing circle targets that I call "card targets." When you hit a Card Target it will give you a random card that will give you an item or target to give you a ton of points (usually around 50,000+). The line of sight is where you are aiming your hit, and it can be controlled by changing your stance ever so slightly. You can also control the ball while it is in mid-air by leaning, back, side to side, or forward.

League Play:
Start playing through the League Mode of the game and get some practice, this is where you will earn the majority of your achievements. Complete all the achievements in this section of the game and beat all nine opponents.

Online:
You will need to go online to win Duel and Derby games to earn the "Hat Trick" achievement. Once you do that, continue to Duel to complete the Avatar FameStar challenge for the "Almost Famous" achievement.

Conclusion:
Overall, this game is a pretty straightforward 400, and although it can be frustrating at times, I found it a blast to play. If you completing the game and got by the glitched achievement, congratulations!

Found and hit the gold treasure trophy in Buccaneer Bay. 

Once you have started up a game on Buccaneer Bay, you will notice a lot of chests around the center of the outfield. One of the chests on the front row will have a glowing skull on it. Hit the skull and it will pop open the chest with the spinning gold treasure. Next, you are going to need to hit the spinning treasure. Both of these hits will need to be "good" hits, so they don't go to far. Remember to lean to make the ball go where you need it to go while it's in mid-air.

Triple Play20
Won a gold score medal at the end of a Home Run League match. 

You will need to beat any player in League Play with a gold medal. If you play the first rival (Erik The Rookie) on the Carnival Stadium, you should do this with ease. Just make sure to maximize your score by aiming for the targets in the back. And if you really need to, hit some epic homeruns.

Pinch Hitter20
Hit 5 consecutive balls in Home Run League Mode 

Just hit 5 balls in a row without getting a strike. This is all about timing, there is no need to swing super fast to try to hit the ball far, everything in this game is about timing. So I recommend just hitting normally and focus on timing, if you hit to hard it may not even register you.

See "Clutch Play" for tips on getting as many points as possible.

Clutch Play25
Scored 500,000 points in a Home Run League match.  

Timing is everything. Try to get as many "perfect" hits as you can, and aim for the big point targets. If you mess up and only get a "good" hit, make sure you hit the multipliers or reward-giving targets to help you earn as many points as you possibly can. Remember to lean in each direction as explained in the roadmap to help bring your ball where you want it to go. Also, hit "epic" home runs by leaning back on a "perfect" hit. This will make the ball fly far enough so it goes past every target.
