Bust-a-Move Live is a fairly simple puzzle game which involves you clearing screens of pre-set puzzles made up of colored bubbles by launching your own bubbles from the bottom of the screen to form combos of 3 or more of the same colored bubbles touching each other. It has multiple game modes and they are described in more detail in the outline below. While some of the puzzles in this game may be quite difficult, the only mode that actually penalizes you for failure is Infinity Mode. If you fail in the 1P Puzzle or CPU Battle modes, you can choose to continue which will allow you to attempt to beat the current puzzle or opponent again. If you fail in Infinity Mode, you can try again, but your time is also reset, meaning you are starting all over again.
Step 2: 1P Puzzle Mode
This is where the minimum of 7 playthroughs comes into play. There are 27 zones to play through in 1P Puzzle mode and every time you clear one zone, you have a choice between two new zones to advance to. Because of these branching paths you will have to play 1P Puzzle mode at least 7 times in order to complete each of the mode's zones.
Be sure to keep track of which zones you play as you go along so you can avoid replaying a zone unnecessarily. Your eventual goal here is to clear all 27 of the game's zones, each of which has 5 puzzles. By the time you're done you will have cleared 135 puzzles.
NOTE: From this point forward, the remaining steps are interchangeable: once you have completed 1P Puzzle mode, you should have a very good grasp of how to play and can do the remaining modes in whichever order you like.
Step 3: Infinity Mode
Step 4: CPU Battle Mode

|For this you need to playthrough 1P Puzzle Mode, and not CPU Battle Mode. You will need to complete all 135 stages and go though all the Zones A-Z.|
This will take seven playthrough in total but this shouldn't take to long to complete. You can either sit down and play through in one go, or break it up into several playthroughs.
Recommended Playthrough Patterns: 1: A, C, F, J, O, U

|Master of Infinite Patience||20|
|Play in Infinity mode for 60 consecutive minutes.||(1)|
|This may sound rather tedious but really doesn't require much effort. Select Infinity Mode and take your time. You can either play the game as intended, or take your time, line up your shots and allow the launcher to fire the bubbles for you after 10 seconds.|
Once you have played for 60 minutes the achievement will unlock.
|Destroy bubbles by bouncing a bubble 3 times.|
|While in any game mode aim to the far left or far right, then fire the bubble against the wall. You can either line up your shots or take a gamble and fire off bubbles at random.|
I suggest that you wait until you have a large amount of the same bubbles, then launch the same coloured bubble as you will have more chance of hitting your target.
|Like a Shooting Star||20|
|Break through at least 30 bubbles.|
|You don't need to break 30 bubbles, causing bubbles to drop also counts towards this. You may earn this with natural progression, though you can use the following technique to earn this quickly.|
Load Zone B-2 and clear one side of the bubble group so you can access the green bubbles with ease. Once you have a clear shot at the green bubbles, fill up the opposite side of the screen. Once you have 30 or so bubbles on one side, you can destroy the green bubbles and cause all the others to drop. If you have managed to do this correctly the achievement will unlock.
|A Flash of Brilliance||15|
|Clear any stage in 5 seconds or less.|
|You will need to aim carefully and make split second decisions to do this quickly, though the first few stages are very easy. You shouldn't have any trouble earning this achievement. Load either Zone A or B and complete the first stage as fast as possible.|
|A Rock-Steady Friendship||15|
|Play 30 player matches.|
|Either find a friend or use the Achievement Trading Thread to find a boosting partner. Once you have a second player load up a player match and play through 30 games together. It doesn't matter if you win or loose, though you can both help each other earn "A Rocky Friendship" while going for this achievement.|
|A Rocky Friendship||20|
|Win 5 player matches.|
|Start a player match with a friend and win five games. This is simple enough but it also counts towards "A Rock-Steady Friendship".|
See "A Rock-Steady Friendship".
|The First Step in the Hardest||10|
|Win one Xbox LIVE Match.||(7)|
