    Once you finish the regular campaign maps of Portal, you will open up 6 advanced maps available for play. The advanced maps are simply six maps you have played before, just some little tweaks to make it harder. Once you finish all 6 maps you will get the achievement.

    The below videos will guide you through each advanced map (they are in order 13,14,15,16,17, then 18)

    using the following cheat will really help
    shoot portal's anywhere:
    Y,A,B,A,B,Y,Y,A Left Right
    make a box:
    Down,B,A,B,Y,Down,B,A,B,Y
    shoot energy ball:
    Up,Y,Y,B,B,G,G,R,R,Up
    just one catch though:
    before you get in the elevator save the game load another game then load the game you saved
    the game will not detect that you cheated
    have fun!

    BrasshandeWorks an absolute treat, i did three of the six advanced maps this way and the cheevo popped up just fine for me. Wish i'd seen this before grinding my way through the first three really, they are pretty hard

    You can cheat for these so here are the cheats that I used:
    Create Box - Down, B, A, B, Y, Down, B, A, B, Y
    Fire Energy Ball - Up, Y, Y, X, X, A, A, B, B, Up
    Place Portal on any surface - Y, A, B, A, B, Y, Y, A, Left, Right
    Invincibility - LB, Up, RB, Up, LB, LB, Up, RB, RB, Up

    With these cheats and the knowledge of the levels (assuming you beat the game) you will have no problem!!!
