    This is pretty simple to achieve and it didn't take me that long as most of the missions are very easy to unlock.

    Basically there are 15 ranks that you have to complete, the highest rank is called 'Barry' and you pretty much just need to finish all of the missions you have left to achieve this rank.

    Rank 1: Beginner (3 Stars)
    Rank 2: Learner
    Rank 3: Rookie
    Rank 4: Novice
    Rank 5: Amateur
    Rank 6: Graduate
    Rank 7: Skilled
    Rank 8: Experienced (7 Stars)
    Rank 9: Professional (9 Stars)
    Rank 10: Expert (11 Stars)
    Rank 11: Hotshot
    Rank 12: Wizard
    Rank 13: Ninja
    Rank 14: Superstar
    Rank 15: Barry (13 Stars)

    There are various missions you'll encounter, including:
    Brush Past Red Flashing Lights
    Collect Spin Tokens
    Cover A Distance on Foot
    Destroy A Vehicle
    Finish A Game Between Specific Distances
    Fly Above Zappers
    Have A Near Miss With Missiles
    Have A Near Miss With Zappers
    High Five Scientists
    Play A Certain Number Of Games
    Purchase And Use A Gadget
    Reach A Distance Without Collecting Any Coins
    Reach A Distance Without Using The Machine Gun Jetpack
    Rub Your Head Against the Roof
    Smash A Hole in the Wall
    Travel A Total Distance In A Vehicle

    When you have completed all missions, the game will ask if you want to start over (or cash in your rank). Select Cash in instead of later, and you will earn a badge and the achievement at the same time.

    If there's a mission that you can't achieve (for example finish 1750 metres without touching a coin), then you can also spend 10,000-15,000 coins in the Utilities section in The Stash to automatically finish this mission.

    EDIT:

    Just to point out, thanks to feedback, you won't lose your gadgets, suits or progress. The only change from the Cash in, is the reward goes back to the amount in Rank 1 (200 coins) when you finish Rank 16.

    NormalCrazerno conflict whatsoever, nothing to worry about. Gadgets and progress are unchanged.
    You get a badge however.

    KungFuMonk3yHardest mission for me was rotating gravity 50 times in 1 run w/ gravity suit. I used a mouse for the game and just clicked the button like mad during first part of run. Also used the ability that starts you off in a "vehicle" and played till I started out w/ gravity suit, then just kept retrying if I failed.

    KBK MUPPETI'm at a point where it says that there are no missions available. Will some more missions become available after a while?

    If you're having a hard time with the last few missions you can increase your gold by playing the game on a different machine. Your mission progress is not saved in the cloud but your money is.

    What I did was get to where I had 2 missions left at level 15 then I started completing missions on my Surface to get more coins. Got to level 11 on that machine to get the 30,000 gold I needed to buy my way to completing the last two missions so I could start over again.
