This requires getting three stars on 42 distinct levels. I would not recommend going for this until after you've completed all the levels.

After I had finished all 100 levels I went back and counted that I already had 40 levels at 3 stars already. I was kind of amazed how I didn't get 3 stars the first time after replaying some levels.

Just go back and find levels you only got 1-2 stars on. Replay them for better scores and hope to get 3 stars and you'll get this in no time.

Here some general tips:

- Work from the bottom. You'll often trigger combos that are key to higher scores
- Be very wary of how many moves you have left vs what score you have. In my opinion no move is wasted if it can make a special combo type (line clear, color clear, etc)
- Some levels are incredibly hard to 3 star. If you're having a tough time just move on to another level.
- Anomalies generally only come down at set moves. These levels tend to be hard to 3 star.
- Timed levels tend to be easy to pass, but tough to 3 star.
- Dark Fragment levels are usually the easiest, but some can be challenging. I found these the best bet to get 3 stars on.

Overload bonus kicks in when you finish the level. However many moves you have left is multiplied by 2,000. Obviously the more moves the better score. Sometimes you have to do this to get over the 3 star barrier.

Power ups are useful but the free ones are limited. Use them wisely.

One last tip is to look at your friend's scores, if you have any that played this game. See what they got on a level and if they were able to score above the 3 star limit chances are you can too.

There is plenty of luck in these types of games, but this shouldn't be too hard.
