This achievement is almost impossible to do on your phone; the requirements for the three gold medals are as follows:

Survive - 6 Minutes

Score - 20,000 Score

Play - 2 hour's

Only the played for 2 hour's is humanly possible to do on your window's phone. I suggest if you haven’t already, to go and purchase this game also on your Xbox 360 as it is much easier to survive for the 6 Minutes and score the 20thousand.

My tips for surviving for 6 minutes are just to move around the screen slowly as possible don't shoot any asteroids if you can help it and take out the UFO's from a distance if possible.
Make good use of your shields as well, you need to make the first and second wave of asteroids last as long as humanly possible as the third wave onwards have a lot more of onscreen space for you to avoid and dodge. Also the asteroids are much quicker at moving.

So just take it nice slow and steady it may take a few tries to do, but this is the best way to do it. After the first round i had accumulated 3 and half minutes.

You will also need to be very lucky to get the 20thousand score and this will be the gold you will most likely work on the most.
My tips for doing this would be to take out as many asteroids as you can do but always leave at least 3 mini asteroids or 1 mini and 1 big asteroid as this will spawn a super ship, if you destroy it as quick as possible without any UFO's destroying the asteroids you left then another super ship will spawn, rinse and repeat as many times as you can do and it is possible to get half the score you need within the first round.

Once you do eventually get to 10k you need to avoid the Mini UFO's like the plague as their shot's are very precise at working out where your next move will be and it is possible to lose your lives very quickly here. Once you get to 15k your score should start to go up much quicker here compared to the rest of your game.

After i spent 2 and a half hours trying to get this achievement i eventually got it within a five minute game by using these above tips.

These may not work for everybody but i thought i would share my two cents on this hard achievement. And i hope it help's if you would like me to add or change anything let me know.

If you feel you need to down vote me please explain why so i can improve my guides
