Microsoft Taptiles

Microsoft Taptiles Achievements


Clear 3 puzzles in one Gem Mode game.  

A Gem Mode game occurs when you play Dash Mode and all the tiles turn green. While in Gem mode you can match tiles any way you want since they are all identical.

Your best bet to start with is when you get the gem tiles from the speed bonus, don't use them instantly. Wait until there's only one more pair in addition to the green gems left and then combine the gems and you only have one pair in your first green gem puzzle. After that you still need to complete two more puzzles when still in the same gem mode.

It's really difficult with mouse, but when you start your second game and get your first speed bonus tiles, if they are Wild tiles, leave them as your last pieces and when the third puzzle opens, combine the Wild tiles to clear the third puzzle instantly.

You need some luck to get the Wild tiles when in Gem Mode. Also if you don't get the green gems as your first bonus tiles, just restart the game since the puzzles will start to get harder in time.

Got it yesterday (with luck)on my surface with 6 fingers (think this is nearly impossible with a mouse).
Puzzle 1: Cleared the last two tiles after activation of the gemmode
Puzzle 2: Around 1-2 Seconds before the 10secs are over ive got two gems to activate a second gemmode
Puzzle 3: Cleared this with the second gemmode (only ~2sec left).

I got it on a touch screen by constantly drumming the four fingers on my right hand over the puzzle every time I got a gem mode puzzle.

okay, just so you guys know, its f***ing glitched up, i got it with a mouse, but it didnt unlock, i got a gem mode, activated it, it was a 15th thing, and the last tiles turned to wild tiles, and they cleared #2, and i cleared #3 while still in gem mode, when you clear the first one, they need to be gem tiles, they cant be wild tiles.

I think it is possible to do only using touchscreen. I tried a huge amount of times using mouse and no luck.

1. Recieve a "Gem Tile" and do not use them until only 2 "Gem Tiles" & 2 usual tiles left (I'm not sure that it will count a figure, if only 2 "Gem Tiles" left and you will activate them and finish figure automatically).
2. Activate "Gem Tiles" and finish those 2 that will became green, so you will finish first figure and next figure also will be in Gem Mode.
3. Tap as fast as possible on next figure and hope you will recieve "Wild Tile" like for "Gems Gone Wild" achievement. Do not activate it until only those two "Wild Tiles" left.
4. Activate "Wild Tiles" at the very end and finish second figure.
5. Third figure will be finished automatically.
