    I got this while trying for the Robin Egg achievement. Using the guide for that achievement, playing on chilled mode at 25% speed. Take your time and wait till it is clear to go for the 1ups and the achievement will be yours in no time.

    Alternatively, you could get this while going for the 1up yours achievement. Just follow the guide to find the special 1up pie and it should give you 30 ships. Don't loose any and beat the level and the achievement is yours.

    Edit: (Credit to Buckswana) If you are going for this achievement and the game will not let you get to 30 ships (ie: You get to 24 ships and the game says max ships and the 1 ups start blowing up after a few seconds), Buckswana found a fix. If you exit the game using the in game exit button instead of the home button or back arrow this should fix the issue. For whatever reason it corrupts the game when you exit any other way.

    BuckswanaEvery time I get up to 27, then it tells me MAX SHIPS, and won't let me pick up any more. Any idea why? Can you not lose any ships at all while going for this achievement or something?

    BuckswanaTried 2 more times, maxing out at 24 ships now, even if I don't lose any. What ship did you use? I tried both of the first 2, and can't get up to 30 w/o it telling me MAX SHIPS every time. Tried different speeds and dificulties, doesn't seem to matter. I'm doing it by grabbing the 1UP pie, hit the max, then I can't pick any up, they just blow up after a few seconds after it tells me I'm at max.

    DJ 0311Sorry man, I never had this happen. I used the first ship and it worked for me. I would suggest uninstalling and reinstalling the game and hopefully this will correct the error. Let me know if this works or if you find another way to fix so I can amend the solution.

    BuckswanaYeah, was going to do that last. Finally got it to work. Had to make sure to exit the game (using the EXIT button), then restart. Probably from backing out of the game by hitting the menu button or just shutting off the phone it got corrupted. Thanks.

    MitoticActivityIt may be that I got lucky, but I hit 30 ships with the pie on Serious, lost a few and finished the level with 25; the achievement still popped.

    XonatronMaybe you only need to get 30 and then complete the level. All achievements seem to pop at the end of the level so this may be true. I know the dev, I should just ask him.

    coipI definitely think the way to go is to do this while pursuing the 1Up Yours achievement. Level 2 and Level 6 both have 1Up pies if you take the right path and fly 'east' (by positioning the ship on the left side of the screen). I first went through the game in pursuit of Robin Egg achievement and finished short of 30 ships. When I tried again and did the 1UP Yours achievement, I was able to get it after about level 4.

    Phr4nk0Achievements do pop at the end of the level. As long as you hit 30 sometime during the level it doesn't matter what amount you finish it with, it will pop at the end. You can also get this in score tilt, if you are having trouble hitting 30 before the game ends. Score tilt wraps around and keeps going, allowing you to hit 30 through normal play.
