    As the title says, you are required to surpass your leaderboard score 3 times so the best thing you can do is to collide with a mountain, get 5 points and then waste all of your fuel by press the red circle button on the left of the screen until you run on empty. This will give you a leaderboard score of 5... as you would know.

    Do this a second time but hit a mountain twice then hit the red button to get rid of fuel quickly (to record a leaderboard score of 10), and then do it a third time with 3 mountain collisions (to log a leaderboard score of 15).

    ****IMPORTANT NOTE****
    It's worth mentioning that this achievement is definitely buggy. Running this on my HTC Mozart, I struggled to log a 3rd leaderboard score (I would get game crashes or the leaderboard wouldn't load or log my score).

    After some experimenting I can confirm that to log a leaderboard score successfully without the game crashing or not loading the leaderboard/recording your score, you MUST turn off notifications and your location. To switch these two options off, to Lunar Lander's 'Help & Options' button. These two options are the last two options that you can toggle on/off.

    Hope that helps

    Maze MayhemWouldn't pop for me first time i played (>> 5 then 10 then 15 pts).
    Reinstalled it and tried again (turned Notification and location off first time i was asked) and did 5 then 10 then 40 pts this time without being idle (means i shortly triggered right and left for a short time per flight during the first 2 round for 5 and 10 pts)
    In the 3rd round and was simply trying to go for a x5 and it popped after the 3rd round in the end screen. So I think Kugare is right - leaderboard seems not to be online/required. Maybe any else can confirm that?!

    JordoI can confirm that mine unlocked the exact way as the comment above me. Reinstall the game, turn notification and location off the first time you're asked, and then score 5 > 10 > then 40 points. That's the only way I could get it to unlock. Also make sure location is disabled on your phone before you even launch the game.

    PhillipWendellAwesome. Reinstalling and saying no to the two prompts got it working for me. Thanks!

    For this Achievement you have to surpass your best score on the leaderboard 3 times. Simply play the first game badly to get a low score then try again, this time beating your first score slightly then on your last go play normally to get your top score.

    GeoffistophelesIn case you've played Game Room on the 360 and set a high score on that, you don't need to beat your overall high score, just mobile. I had a high score of 1775 from the console version, but three progressively better games (10, 100, 200 points) still unlocked the achievement.

    MelthrisJust a heads up, I'm running with a HTC Mozart and there seem to be a few issues with this achievement.
    When accessing the leaderboards it will occasionally reboot my phone and will almost never record my score on the leaderboards

    I've only managed to get two leaderboard updates so far but the third is proving to be very difficult.
