Introduction:
Parking Mania is a driving simulator that was originally a Nokia exclusive and is now available for all Windows Phones (both 7 and 8). It is a reasonably easy game, but very long. Think of it as having a very good entertainment ratio of money to hours played.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:

The very first thing you want to do is to go into options (click on the wrench icon in the upper left corner) and choose "Steering Wheel". The default is "Accelerometer" which provides absolutely horrible levels of control given some of the maneuvers you will be performing. If you are left-handed, you can also flip the controls so the steering wheel is on the right and control the accelerator with your primary hand.

BoxClever may require resetting your game data to earn, so either do that first, or wait until you are done and do it then. Other than that, start at level one and play the game. You need to beat 160 levels, 90 of which need to be 3-stars. Along the way you will need to purchase extra lives and collect 100 coins. If you find a level excessively difficult, skip it and move on as there are 220 levels provided in the game.

There are many levels with trains or trolleys running on tracks that do not generally stop in time to avoid hitting you if you cross the tracks. These are usually the hardest levels to get a 3-star rating on. Don't let them turn you off from the game, just complete them if you can and move on.

There are several levels where you are required to get coins, but other than that once you have your 100 coins they are worth ignoring. You will earn far more money than you need just playing the 160 levels to unlock Parking Pro, and the coins add to your time significantly on most maps.

Buy the extra lives as soon as you can as that will make getting a 3-star rating easier. Also as a rule, driving slow is better than driving fast. The only exception is if you are crossing rails where speed is of the essence.

Mop-Up:
If you unlock Parking Pro and have yet to unlock No Claims Bonus, simply load up any map after 100 and complete it without collisions. Also, if you don't have BoxClever, delete your game data and follow the instructions for that glitchy achievement.

Conclusion:
This is a very long game for a phone, but is generally straight forward. It also has the advantages that it can be played in small units of time and is not bothered by being idled if you need to do something else such as answer the phone. Overall a generally enjoyable experience and a completion to be proud of for your patience and perseverance if nothing else.

First Gear10
Earn 3 stars on 1 level. 

This achievement will unlock the first time you complete a map with a 3-star rating.

To earn a 3-star rating on a level, you need to end the level with five or more lives. Most maps from 1-100 are reasonably easy to do this on. Note that you can purchase extra lives from the store as you earn money in the game, and doing so early on will make the 3-star ratings easier. On some harder levels (generally 101+) there are also extra life tokens that will restore a lost life. You lose a life if you collide with any other in-game object. Generally your phone will vibrate to tell you this, and your vehicle flashes and turns partially transparent for a few seconds as well.

Second Gear10
Earn 3 stars on 5 levels. 

This achievement will unlock after you have earned a 3-star rating on five different levels. Repeating levels does not increment the counter additional times.

Compact10
Earn $10,000. 

This achievement will unlock once you have earned $10,000 in the game.

You earn money two different ways in Parking Mania. On each level you are assigned a number of goals (the number varies by map, but ranges from 1-4). Each goal you complete will reward you with money. Easier goals and lower levels generally pay less, while harder goals and higher levels generally pay more. The other way to earn money is to collect coins on each level where they are available. Every coin you collect will increase your earnings by $500. If you are aiming to complete all achievements in the game, however, don't focus on coins after you unlock Jackpot as they will slow you down and you will earn far more money than you can spend just by completing the 160 levels needed for Parking Pro.

No Claims Bonus10
Complete a hard level without damaging cars. 

To unlock this achievement you need to complete a hard level without taking any damage at all. Hard levels are considered any level 101 or higher. Levels 108, 110, and 112 are all very simple to complete and may be a good choice to earn this on.

BoxClever10
Park 15 trailers. 

T** This achievement is glitchy and does not unlock in a timely manner. **

You may have to delete your save data for this to unlock, so you should attempt it either as your first achievement or your last achievement. It is also possible that it just may not unlock at all for some profiles.

In theory, this achievement unlocks after you have successfully parked 15 trailers. In reality, it is a temperamental achievement that may or may not like you. Most people who have successfully unlocked it have repeatedly parked the first trailer 20-30 times on level 21, pausing and restarting as soon as your rig unhooks. Any trailer should work, but that level is reasonably fast to get parked.

Note that this approach generally only works on a clean save, with no levels completed.

Turn on a dime10
Collect 1 coin. (3) 

This will unlock after you collect your first coin, which can be easily done on level 1. The achievement unlocks in-game as you drive over the coin and see it disappear. Note that there are over 1000 coins in the game, and all of the coin achievements should unlock without even focusing on them.

Buck up10
Collect 5 coins. 

This will unlock after you collect your fifth coin. The achievement unlocks in-game as you drive over the coin and see it disappear. Note that there are over 1000 coins in the game, and all of the coin achievements should unlock without even focusing on them.

Money box10
Collect 25 coins. 

This will unlock after you collect your 25th coin. The achievement unlocks in-game as you drive over the coin and see it disappear. Note that there are over 1000 coins in the game, and all of the coin achievements should unlock without even focusing on them.

Jackpot10
Collect 100 coins. 

This will unlock after you collect your 100th coin. The achievement unlocks in-game as you drive over the coin and see it disappear. Note that there are over 1000 coins in the game, and all of the coin achievements should unlock without even focusing on them. Once you unlock Jackpot, only collect coins that are required for a goal in the level so that you don't spend unnecessary time on something that doesn't impact an achievement.

Top buyer10
Buy 3 extra lives. 

There is a store in the game that lets you purchase extra lives. They cost $50,000 for the first extra life, $250,000 for the second, and $500,000 for the third. The achievement unlocks after you have purchased all three. Note that completing levels and earning 3-star ratings on levels are both easier with more lives, so purchase them as soon as you can afford them. You will earn far more than $800,000 total simply by completing the 160 levels required for Parking Pro.
