Attached is a video to illustrate the discussion in drabik
's excellent walkthrough. Summary
--Before obtaining other flags, obtain the special flag depicted by the blinking yellow dot on the blue overview map on the right.
--Collect the other flags depicted by non-blinking yellow dots on the blue overview map on the right.
--There is plenty of fuel but do not waste it.
as a defense against the enemy car.
--Finishing the round satisfies the conditions to unlock the achievement but it will not 'pop' until the game is ended.Detailed solution
--Begin the game on Round 1. There will be one enemy and no obstacles. Use smoke (the default is the
button) if the sole enemy depicted by a red dot gets too near.
--As the screen is loading up identify the blinking yellow dot on the blue map to the right side of the playing area. In the attached video it is on the far right towards the bottom. This is the special flag. Its location is randomly generated so it will be in a different place each time.
--Proceed to the blinking yellow dot where you will obtain the special flag depic;ted by an S
. Avoid going to any non-blinking dot before you acquire the special flag to ensure the special flag is the first flag you obtain.
--Once you have the special flag, go to each of the other yellow dots on the blue overview map on the right and obtain the flags they represent. Note that in the video, the flag collected immediately following the special flag is the lucky flag depicted by an L
. Like the special flag, the lucky flag's location is randomly generated. Unlike the special flag that blinks, there is no indicator on the blue map to tell you which of the many yellow dots is the lucky flag. There is always one and only one lucky flag in each round.
--You should have plenty of fuel but it is a resource to be managed. Try to collect the flags as efficiently as possible. Use smoke to keep the red enemy car at a distance. Note that this uses fuel so use this defense mechanism judiciously.
The achievements do not pop when the conditions to unlock them are met. Rather, they are popped at the end of the game. In the attached video, the player car suicides in Round 2 in order to quickly end the game. The No-Miss achievement is unlocked. This guide supplements the walkthrough which discusses unlocking five achievements at the beginning of the game. The other four achievements are:
1. If not previously unlocked, obtaining the special flag will unlock:
2. If not previously unlocked, obtaining the special flag before any other flag will unlock:
3. If not previously unlocked, obtaining the lucky flag will unlock:
4. If not previously unlocked, if the lucky flag is obtained before consuming half the fuel, the Fuel Bonus achievement will unlock. Since the location of the lucky flag is randomly determined and could be far from the special flag, it is just a matter of luck if it is found before half the fuel is consumed. Nevertheless, if not obtained early, eventually, in a later round or a subsequent game, it will spawn close enough to earn:
