    I wouldn't suggest bothering to work on this until you've gotten all of the other achievements, but if you somehow manage to finish the game and all the bonus levels without getting this one, level 42 (Faun level 2) in the story is awesome for it. As soon as you start the level, two arrows will shoot out 8 pieces of ice and 8 pieces of stone automatically. Just hit restart until you get the achievement. Also a good place to work on

    iamtfcThis doesn't seem to be working for me. I honestly don't know why. I had gotten global warming already doing this trick on a different level, so I know it should work. However, after restarting level 42 after twenty minutes and checking my stats for this cheevo, it hadn't moved the percentage bar at all.

    I started playing the bonus levels, and the stats have starting going up again. Went back to level 42, and after restarting a dozen times, the stats again aren't going up. Dunno if it's a glitch or what.

    WorhammerThat's really weird. I went for it just because I didn't want to wait for the achievement, and I did it on this level....

    iamtfcI gave a thumbs up for this even though I never got the trick to work on this particular level. I ended up grinding it much the same way your guide details (blowing things up when a level starts, then restarting it) on another level (52, maybe....?).

    I just thought I'd post again to let you know how I ended up getting it. Still not sure why level 42 didn't work for me, but your guide is still very useful for the general idea.

    QuickMythrilinteresting, mine is stuck at 15% which is 300, the amount required for the smaller achievement for breaking rocks... anyone figure out how to fix this?

    QuickMythrilas suggested to me by Chunkeh Munkeh, i tried to keep breaking ice. i was told that restarting can cause your counter to reset, but still be listed at the number for the smaller achievement. after a few rounds of breaking the 80 blocks of ice at the beginning of level 25, my counter started moving again. so if your counter freezes, do not give up.

    Cheese EmpanadaCan anyone verify if burning them with the fire power is counts towards the total?

    UnsungGhostOddly enough, the counter for my rocks seems to be stuck but the ice one isn't.

    Iron Man TStarkhow can you check the stats?

    QuickMythrilbeen a while since i played and i don't have it installed, but i am pretty sure you go to the main menu and click Achievements, and the list has stat tracking right on it.

    LegendgenesisThe counter doesn't move for me when I try this, either. I had to continue on like normal and just blow up as many rocks as I can during normal play for it to actually start doing anything. I've already got the ice related achievements at this point, so I can't vouch for that counting or not.
