This game is the same as one of the minigames in Kinect Sports: Season Two. The gameplay is simple. There is a pizza in the centre of the area, which you must protect by hitting zombies with darts.

As with all Kinect Sports Gems, gaining levels is not based on gaining experience or burning calories. To gain levels, you must complete challenges.

For this achievement you will need to obtain 2 stars by completing challenges. Most of the challenges will come naturally, but some do require a change in gameplay.

Game Tips

Pizza - In the middle of the play-area, there is a Pizza! That is YOUR pizza. Your task is to protect it. There are three slices. Once all three slices are taken, it is game over.

Zombies - The zombies come in two forms; blue and red. The blue zombies are slower, and as such, you should prioritise by aiming for red zombies first, or any closest to the pizza, of course. The zombies will appear in waves, climbing out of the ground.

Scoring - As you may guess from the game title, and the board, this is actually a Darts-inspired game. The game-space is a darts board, with the pizza placed on the bulls eye. Your weapon is a dart, of which you have an infinite amount. To kill the zombies, throw a dart at them from above. The score given for each zombie is based on where the zombie is standing when it is destroyed. If it is standing on triple 20 when you kill it, you gain 60 points. For those unfamiliar with darts, the outer ring is worth double points, whilst the central ring is worth triple.

Zombie stampedes - Zombie stampedes occur every 5 waves. The zombies appear at a faster pace in these waves. You may need to react a bit more quickly than previous waves.

Bombs - After surviving a zombie stampede, you will rewarded with a bomb. Hitting these bombs will cause a large explosion, destroying all zombies within range. I recommend avoiding these bombs until the next zombie stampede, or for whenever you are overrun with zombies.


I won't include detailed information on challenges here. Should you need tips for any other specific challenges, please ask for them in the comments section. Alternatively, I have created a walkthrough on TrueAchievements, which has tips for all challenges in the game:

If you enter Settings, there is an option to 'Clear Missions'. DO NOT USE THIS OPTION! It will clear your challenges and ALL of your progress, so you will have to start all over, from Level 0.
