    At the start of the story mode, and after every four levels, is a mini-game that you have to solve to free the fairy or restore the page. To get this achievement, you need to clear the entire game without using the hint button.

    If you did use a hint, you can't just play through the game a second time: you have to go to the Settings charm, choose Options, and choose Reset Game to clear the fact that you used a hint. [Thanks to Uncle Seeth for confirming this.]

    Lord AzureHey Mike just started on this, on some of the puzzles it says skip rather than Hint, does that void the achieve?

    Mike MarcelaisNo idea -- I never used the hints (and with my Walkthrough, you shouldn't need to either. smile) My guess would be yes.

    AndroidOdnetninWhere is the settings charm located? I didn't realize this was an achievement and need to reset early on.

    Mike MarcelaisTouch: Slide you finger inward from the right edge of the screen.
    Mouse: Move your mouse to either corner of the right side of the screen.
    Both: Then choose 'Settings' (the bottom icon in the bar that pops out).

    AndroidOdnetninHuh, I can't get mine to show up (I just get my laptop settings). Is it on the main menu, past the "Start" option, or is it somewhere else?

    Mike MarcelaisFor me, it shows up both at the main menu as well as when you're playing a level.

    CrunchyGoblin68Just an FYI, I did skip at least one element in a puzzle and still earned this achievement, so it might be just as long as you never hit the hint button you will get this.

    DuBear61for win 10, it is actually left side of top of screen. dragging down from top (or moving mouse to top brings up title bar that will say 4 Elements II: Special Edition at top left (one with minimize / maximize window). To far left is the three stacked bars. Click them and it will have two choices (share and options). Options launces the menu from left side for options, which in turn has the Reset option.
