Introduction:
This is a 2D platformer action game which reminds me a bit of Buster Bros (Pang) in a way where you have to burst balls bouncing around. You take control of a character called Lucas and battle through 8 worlds and defeat the evil Spheroids. It should not take longer than 4 hours to complete and only has 16 achievement there is no tutorial but the controls are simple to pick up.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
There are no missable achievements so you can just enjoy and play the game because of the level select and there are no collectibles to worry about in this game and by the end of your playthrough you should have the majority of the achievements so there should not be much to mop-up. To use the power-ups all you have to do is touch them, there are 8 worlds to battle through which are all countries (not that it matters.)

Mop-Up:
You should only have three or fewer achievements to get but if there is anything you have missed on your first playthrough then it's time to mop-up the rest of your achievements there is a level select so no need to worry.

Conclusion:
Overall this is an easy 1000 to complete and should only take you 4 maybe 5 hours at the maximum, none of the achievements are hard to get and there should not be too much of a grind at the end of your playthrough. With that in mind just play and enjoy the game with no worries.

  • Destroy 100 balls

    This is a very straight forward achievement. All you have to do is burst 100 balls and as long as you keep popping them you will unlock this on the very first world, Japan. Note that there are loads throughout the game so will come naturally.

  • Destroy 500 balls of any type

    You should unlock this one the third world, Egypt, but even if you don't, there are plenty more in the game Note that there is one type that did not seem to pop and they are the light blue ones.

  • Collect 1000 coins

     

    After my playthrough, I had 664 coins and I did miss some so you may have more. There are about 80 coins on the first world, Japan, which takes less than 10 minutes to complete. This total is cumulative, so you can spend your coins on your way; it counts the total coins collected.

  • Destroy 2500 balls

    I got this one in the very last world, Easter Island. It really should come through your normal playthrough so you should not have to worry about it too much, but if you do need to grind this out you can pick any world of your choice. Note that Japan takes about ten minutes to finish.

  • Acquire 500 coins

     

    This one unlocked for me on the 7th world, Greece. It does not have to be all in one go as I spent some on the way. The coins in this game are yellow blocks and they are found in every world. Japan has about 80 coins alone so there is no need to worry about this.

  • Buy something on the store

    The first shop that shows up is on the second level of Japan. You will need at least ten coins to buy anything so make sure you have collected enough. There are plenty of shops throughout the game so not much to worry about.

  • Use the dynamite power-up 25 times

    Power-ups are randomly dropped by shooting the enemies and by shooting the red blocks. It is recommended just doing runs in Japan as it only takes less than 10 minutes to do.

  • Use the stop-time power-up 25 times

    For this achievement, it has to be the power-up that stops time and not the one that slows the enemies down. Just like the dynamite power-up, you may not have it by the end of your playthrough so again I would suggest just doing quick runs in Japan but you can do it in any world as they drop randomly.
