    You can constantly replay the first level of this game to get the two Mutators you need. it is by far easier to juggle the multiball then to get lucky enough to get a multiball while Fastball is in play. This technique also works for Triple Threat achievement which requires getting a second Multiball while having two IonBall's in play.

    Multiball Mutator looks like two IonBall's together, Fastball is the Yellow IonBall Mutator. You could also play the entire game then after finishing the final boss hit continue game and you restart on level one with all upgrades already purchased.


    Edit:

    According to CasperTC you must have the multiball first, then get the fastball.

    If you choose the game continue option DO NOT UPGRADE the IonBall! Focus on Mutator increases, paddle size, and the chance to avoid losing a life on dropping the IonBall.

    CasperTCJust a note. This doesn't unlock if you have the fastball active and then get multi ball. You must get multi ball and then the fastball upgrade.

    Bomb Jack DKI started a new game without powerups. I used level 6. If you don't have it when there are two bricks left, just press the back button, quit to the main menu and select Continue Game and you'll restart level 6. After about 30-40 attempts I had both the Double Time achievement and the achievements where you need 3 balls in play. Purely luck based.

    Cold MachineInterestingly, if you get the 'sticky bat' mutator first and then get a multiball mutator while sticky bat is still active then the second ball (from the multiball mutator) will stick to the bat forever, even after the sticky bat has worn off. This obviously makes it very easy to keep both balls in play while hoping for a fast ball mutator. This is how I managed to get this achievement.
