This achievement is for getting at least gold level in the first 12 badges. The four elite badges at the bottom of the badges page are not required for this achievement.

GOLD BADGES:

INFERNO- Clear 1000 Flame Gems
STELLAR - Clear 400 Star Gems
CHROMATIC - Clear 400 Hypercubes

You'll gain progress towards these three badges as you complete the game's other achievements. After doing everything else in the game I still had star gems and hypercubes to get. I found Diamond Mine was a great mode to get them on as it practically gives them to you.

A flame gem is created when you make a row of 4.
A star cube is created when you make an L or T shape using 5 gems.
A hypercube is created when you make a row of 5.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BLASTER - Destroy 50 Gems in a single move

This will most likely happen by accident for you. If you want to try and force it, look to make two hypercubes and smash them together. A few star or flame gems should do the trick also.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BEJEWELER - Finish a Classic Game with a score over 300,000

A very easy badge. Just concentrate on making matches and looking for special gem possibilities. Work low on the board where possible. This mode only ends when you run out of matches.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FINAL FRENZY - Score over 40,000 Points During a Last Hurrah in Lightning Mode

Another easy one. Not sure you can really force it but you wont need to anyway.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HIGH VOLTAGE - Score over 500,000 Points in Lightning Mode

Just go as fast as possible while making as many special cubes as possible as they score higher, do more damage and create time bonuses.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ANTE UP - Score 500,000 Points in Poker

A little tricky but you just have to try to go for big hands where possible. If you are trying to make flushes bear in mind that making a hypercube with a row of five creates a 'joker' type gem for you which can be any colour. That's a really handy tool for working towards flushes.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THE GAMBLER - Get 30 Flushes in Poker

See above. This was my final mode-based badge and I was basically just starting matches, seeing if a flush was likely and if it wasn't I pressed 'back' to restart. You can restart during a match also and keep your badge progress. Annoyingly each badge colour (bronze, silver, gold) restarts the count from zero so you'll need 60 in all for this.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GLACIAL EXPLORER - Score 500,000 Points in Ice Storm

Stop the rising columns of ice by getting vertical matches. This mode has the most pressure on it so you won't have time to get clever with special gems. However, you should definitely aim to take out columns first if the chance is there. After a few matches your multiplier goes up. There's an achievement for getting it to 5x but be warned, the game gets a lot tougher at 4x level.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ICE BREAKER - Get a x12 Column Combo in Ice Storm

The bitch of the bunch. To get a column combo you have to destroy an ice column (any height) with vertical matches. Getting a vertical match on a non-icey column doesn't count. The only linking factor here is time so you can still get horizontal matches to set up vertical ones but be quick, this is pretty unforgiving.

A good tip is to go for this from the very start. The board has eight columns but in terms of ice it only has four (as each one is two columns wide). Start up a match and instantly look for all the possible vertical matches on the board. If you are lucky there will be one in each potential ice column. Now let the ice build up in a few columns and start picking them off. This will get you a nice 4x combo headstart but you've still got to find another 8. So pick off those verticals making sure they are in ice columns. Hypercubes can work for or against you. I got one at around 7x and it pushed me over 12x.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIAMOND MINER - Score 500,000 Points in Diamond Mine

*see below*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

RELIC HUNTER - Collect 12 Artifacts in Diamond Mine

This is the harder of the two Diamond Mine badges. The key is to break rocks at the bottom of the screen so focus on making matches next to the rocks. The placement of relics is pretty random and you can't miss them so just focus on getting low (there is an achievement for getting to a depth of 200). Star gems can be incredibly helpful if near the bottom. If you get a hypercube, look at the gems near the rock. The most common colour is the one you want to crash your hypercube into. This is pretty frustrating but stick with it as you'll be earning stars/hypers for those first badges.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BUTTERFLY MONARCH - Score 500,000 Points in Butterflies

Pick off those butterflies as soon as possible. There's no timer so look for hypercube and star gem possibilities as these can really help you out. If there's no direct butterfly matches on, look for verticals below them as these buy you a bit more time. There is an achievement for getting 100 butterflies in one round so aim for that too.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BUTTERFLY BONANZA - Collect 8 Butterflies in 1 Move

A different strategy to the above. Start picking them off at the beginning and save up any hypercubes you can find (be warned though, these will be triggered if a butterflies moves into one as it climbs). The longer you survive, the more butterflies you'll get joining the board. When there are lots of them, do something spectacular. There's a bit of a luck to this achievement I guess.
