Introduction:
Temple Run 2 is a 3-D endless runner that follows hot-on-the-heels of the critically-acclaimed first installment. Your character has just stolen an idol from the cave of a huge monkey and is now being chased. You must navigate the randomly generated obstacles in front of you for as long as possible, jumping, sliding, turning, and collecting everything you can in the process. Currently the game is FREE in the Windows Phone Store.

NOTE ABOUT INTERNET CONNECTION: 
The achievements for this game will only pop when you have an active internet connection. If you unlock any achievements while offline, they will unlock when your connection is next active, generally during a run.

GLITCH WARNING: 
All achievements in the game have been found to be glitchy and not unlock even though they appear as so in the game. The achievement pop-up (green bar notification) will never come on-screen. No real reason for this behavior has been discovered as of yet and it will be different for everyone. It has been proposed to be related to quickly exiting the screen after you die before the achievement has time to sync. Be sure to always let the after-action screen site a couple of seconds.This is not guaranteed to happen but don't be surprised if a couple glitch on you. Reinstalling the game and completing the requirements again has been shown to allow the glitched achievements to be obtained. 

NOTE ON PROGRESS NOT SAVING: 
Some non-USA players have reported that the game will not save their progress. Each time they exit the game and return to it, it appears as though they never played it before. This can be fixed by uninstalling the game. Then go to your device's Settings>Language+Region and then change your Country/Region to United States. Reboot your phone and download the game again from USA marketplace. This version will not have the save game issue. As soon as it installs, you can change your region back to your native one and get to earning the achievements. 

CHEAP TRICK FOR THE TOUGHER ACHIEVEMENTS:
If at any point you run across a challenge that you just cant beat, there is an easy method that involves exploiting the way the tutorial is integrated into the game. This method is only really useful for objectives related to coins and points. It will not help with distance. Full credit goes to BreakingPad68. Follow the steps below:

  1. Go into the Settings for the game and turn "Show Tutorial" on.
  2. Play a game. You will be in the tutorial. You will have to swipe up to jump. Then swipe left or right to turn.
  3. Once you get confirmation that you completed the turns and then are prompted about sliding, keep crashing into the wall until the monkey catches you (swipe left or right quickly). You will spawn just a few instances back. Keep crashing into the wall being caught until you get the prompt about jumping again. You will have now spawned back at the beginning of the tutorial but you accumulated score will have saved. Rinse and repeat for score-related objective.
  4. Once you complete the sliding part of the tutorial, you will then learn how to tilt your device to collect coins. After collecting the three groups of coins, use the wall crashing technique again. This time, do it only about 3 times. You will then be able to collect the coins again, with the previous ones being saved. Rinse and repeat for coin-related objectives.
  5. In order to complete the objectives and pop any achievements, you must reach the end of the tutorial and start the "real" game. Once you do, go ahead and die to record your stats and finish the objectives.
  6. The tutorial must be re-activated each time you want to use this method.


Step 1: Work on completing objectives:
Every achievement in the game is tied to completing objectives. These are tasks that can either be met in a single run or are cumulative across several runs. Progressing through the objectives will earn you each achievement in the game. You can only unlock an achievement IF AND ONLY IF it is an active objective. There is no need to spend actual money to unlock any achievements, though you can speed up the process marginally by purchasing the 2x coin permanent boost and even green gems to use for continuing after dying. These are totally optional and really unnecessary in most cases (especially given the cheap trick mentioned at the end of the RoadMap). Just focus at all times on completing your active objectives. Once you complete the last objective tied to an achievement you are done!

Conclusion:
Temple Run 2 is not that challenging once you get used to it and all of the objectives tied to achievements can be completed in a handful of hours. Following the tips in this guide you should easily reach your free 200 in no time.

Daily Dose5
Completed the Daily Challenge 

This achievement is tied to the objective for completing a single Daily Challenge. See "The Spartan" for more information on objectives. There is one Daily Challenge active per day that resets at midnight local time for you. From the Main Menu, tap Challenges to see the Daily one. Usually it is something simple that can be completed in less than 10 runs, like collecting 1000 coins or 10 power-ups. Do so to unlock this achievement.

Gem Collector5
Found a gem 

This achievement is tied to the objective for finding a single green gem. See "The Spartan" for more information on objectives. Green gems look like large green diamonds and RANDOMLY spawn somewhat infrequently while playing the game. You will always have to jump to pick them up. Just keep playing once you get this objective and you will surely come across a gem in no time.

Cheat Death5
Used a 'Save Me' (2) 

This achievement is tied to the objective for using a single Save Me. See "The Spartan" for more information on objectives. Whenever you die, a brief pop-up will come on-screen asking if you want to purchase a Save Me with green gems to continue your run. Using subsequent Save Mes in the same run will cost more green gems. Once the objective is active, do this once to unlock the achievement.

Archaeology 10110
Found an Artifact (6) 

This achievement is tied to the objective for finding a single artifact. See "The Spartan" for more information on objectives. Artifacts are items found in the brown chests that you must always jump to collect. They spawn randomly and relatively infrequently. Just keep playing once you get this objective and you will surely come across a brown chest.

Power Collector10
Unlocked a 2nd powerup 

This achievement is tied to the objective for unlocking a second power-up. See "The Spartan" for more information on objectives. Power-ups in this case are the boosts that you can equip from the menu to use in a run by double tapping the screen once your power meter is full. Power-ups are unlocked by purchasing additional characters or by reaching specific levels. There are 6 power-ups in total. The Shield is available from the start, while Coin Bonus, Boost, and Score Bonus are unlocked by purchasing Barry Bones (25,000 coins), Scarlett Fox (5,000 coins), and Karma Lee (50,000 coins), respectively. You can also unlock Coin Magnet and Gem Bonus by simply reaching level 5 and 9, respectively. The cheapest second power-up to unlock is Coin Bonus for 5,000 coins, or you can just wait it out until you reach level 5 to unlock Coin Magnet for no cost.

Weakly Challenged10
Completed a Weekly Challenge 

This achievement is tied to the objective for completing a single Weekly Challenge. See "The Spartan" for more information on objectives. There are three Weekly Challenges active per week. From the Main Menu, tap Challenges to see the Daily one. Usually they are something slightly more involved than Daily Challenges, such as collecting 5,000 coins or 10 gems, or surpassing large cumulative score requirements. 

Allergic to Gold10
1,000m collecting no coins 

These achievements are tied to the objective for going 250m and 1,000m without collecting a single coin. See "The Spartan" for more information on objectives. These requirements must be met from the START of the level (i.e. you must run the first 250m/1,000m without collecting coins. This means you need to avoid the coins on the first zip line and beyond. Once the respective pop-ups for the distances you need come on screen and you have 0 coins, you can be sure you have met the requirements (you can also check from the pause menu under objectives).

TIP: A useful tip mentioned by HighT3chR3dn3ck is that you can pause the game precisely when your character is making a turn. In this screen you can see where the next coins are and what direction you need to tilt you device in to dodge them. Resume and tilt you phone correctly while the three second timer on-screen counts down. 

Couch to 5k10
Collected 5,000 coins, overtime 

This achievement is tied to the objective for collecting 5,000 cumulative coins across multiple runs. See "The Spartan" for more information on objectives. Coins are the yellow diamonds you see while running that can be collected by touching them. They are used for upgrades and new characters. Simply collect 5,000 after the objective becomes active to unlock this achievement.

Steady Feet15
Run 2,500m without tripping 

This achievement is tied to the objective for going 2,500 meters without tripping. See "The Spartan" for more information on objectives. Tripping occurs when you run into a barrier on the ground or when you swipe left or right to turn where you cant turn. These actions will cause you to slow down and the large primate will come on-screen and start following you. You must travel 2,500 meters without this occurring. Progress can be continued with a Save Me from all other forms of death as long as the monkey never comes on-screen. Obviously this is easiest to do from the start of a run when you are moving slow. Use a Head Start if you need to.

Head Start15
Used a 'Head Start' 

This achievement is tied to the objective for using a single Head Start. See "The Spartan" for more information on objectives. Head Starts can be used right at the beginning of a run to quickly warp you a large distance by tapping the buttons on screen. They cost 2,500 and 10,000 coins for the short and long Head Starts, respectively. Using the short Head Start one time after this objective has become active will unlock this achievement.

Bonus Items15
Collected 20 bonus items 

This achievement is tied to the objective for cumulatively collecting 20 bonus items across multiple runs. See "The Spartan" for more information on objectives. Bonus items are those that you can jump to collect and include power-ups, gems, and artifact chests. Collect a cumulative total of 20 after this objective becomes active to unlock this achievement.

10K Runner15
Ran 10,000 meters 

These achievements are tied to the objectives for running 500, 1,000 and 10,000 meters in a single run. See "The Spartan" for more information on objectives. Your distance run is not actively displayed on-screen except for pop-ups when you pass specific milestones. 10,000 meters is not that difficult to obtain especially since you can use as many Save Me continues after dying as you want (as long as you have the gems to do so). You can pause the game at any time to check your distance.

Million Club15
Scored 1,000,000 points 

These achievements are tied to the objectives for scoring 25,000 and 1,000,000 million points in a single run. See "The Spartan" for more information on objectives. Points in the game are earned for a variety of things and the formula is actually quite complicated (check it out HERE). Obviously the further you get the more points you get, but collecting coins and power-ups is also important. Additionally completing objectives will increase you base multiplier for all subsequent runs. This basically means that initially it will be hard to reach, say one million points. After you get some objectives completed, it will be quite easy, even though the game is the same, due to the way the formula changes. You can use as many Save Me continues as you want (if you have the gems to do so).

See the Cheap Trick for the Tougher Achievements section at the end of the RoadMap for a very easy method to earn this achievement using no gems. 

Fort Knox15
Collected 5,000 coins 

These achievements are tied to the objectives for collecting 500 and 5,000 coins in a single run. See "The Spartan" for more information on objectives. This is probably the most challenging achievement in the game obtain, but it is really not that difficult considering you can use as many Save Me continues as you want when you die (if you have the gems to do so). Just collect as many coins as you can but also be weary to not take unnecessary risks causing death. You will likely need to survive to 25,000+ meters distance traveled (half of that if you bought the x2 coins permanent boost from the store). For this specific achievement, it would be helpful to buy the upgrades for the boost that lowers the number of gems need to use Save Me continues.

See the Cheap Trick for the Tougher Achievements section at the end of the RoadMap for a very easy method to earn this achievement using no gems. 

The Spartan20
1 million without powerups 

All achievements in the game are tied to the objectives in the game. There are three objectives active at any given time and they can either be required to be completed in a single run, or can be cumulative across numerous runs. It depends on the specific objective. After you complete an objective, a new one will be given to you. Every achievement is tied to an objective, but not all objectives offer an achievement as a reward. Note than you cannot complete the requirements for an achievement before they are displayed as an objective (some you can but must complete a run after having it active). Completing objectives will earn you progress towards leveling up and also increase your score multiplier for the game.

See the individual achievements for tips for each specific objective. There is nothing to worry about missing as your progress through the game. 

This specific achievement is tied to the objective for scoring 1,000,000 points without using a single power-up. See "Million Club" for more information about scoring points. By the time this objective becomes active, you should be quite skilled at the game and have little trouble doing so without using power-ups. You must not collect any power-ups that you have to jump for and also not activate your permanent power-up that becomes available when you fill the power bar by double-tapping the screen. You can use as many Save Me continues as you want after dying (if you have the gems to do so). This will likely be your last achievement in the game. Gems and chests are okay to collect, but some have reported issues when collecting them, so it is probably best to avoid them as well.
