    Quick note: This is a cumulative achievement and does not need to be done in one game. You need to open a total of 100 doors across all your games.

    In adventure mode you need to find the hidden keys lying around the levels and then take them to open any of the wooden doors. Keys can only be used in the level you find them in.

    You can check your progress towards this achievement through the statistics on the right hand side of the main page.

    There is normally about somewhere between 0-3 doors on each level. I had to complete 75 levels before I unlocked the achievement, which took me about 7/8 hours.

    This is a fairly straightforward achievement to get, just a little bit time consuming. Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions for improvements for this guide. Good luck!

    MathGuy 42 has posted another method in the comments which may be slightly faster:

    'I hit Menu, then New Game until Level 1 has a monster or door near the beginning. I blast through to get the monster or door. If there are more nearby, I'll keep going. Depending on how far I am, I'll either intentionally die or finish Level 1, both of which save progress. Note that Menu / New Game does not save progress. I'm not done yet, but I think it will take a lot less than 7-8 hours.

    Of course it also makes sense to start this mini-grind after getting the Level 20 achievement since plenty of doors and monsters will need to be dealt with for that.'

    The BiodreamerThe achivement pops after finishing the level after open the 100th door. I did this the slow way by reaching level 69. there can be as many as five doors in a single level so you should get this faster then the monster. if you didn't play before the upgrade. if you played before upgrading you probably had a few monsters while doors start from 0.

    GeoffistophelesGreat guide. Just like the monster achievement, you can open a door with dynamite, still counts.

    ENTERPRISE TAfter dying my door progress did not seem to save. The higher number is shown on the medal tracker but not the achievement. Has anyone else seen this?

    This solution is only for those with 2 computers (Windows 8).

    * Blasting the doors with dynamite will count towards this achievement.

    Both primary and secondary computer must be running at the same time.

    1.Sign on your primary PC. Find a level with lots of monsters. Progress into the level and make a save convenient for you. Exiting is not required for saving. Performing any action (flagging ,moving adventurer, etc) in the game will automatically save to your cloud.
    2.Sign on your secondary PC and load up the cloud storage.
    3.On your secondary PC, open all desired doors and fail the mission. Go back to homepage.
    4. On your primary PC, perform one action to update the cloud.
    5. Load up cloud storage on your secondary PC.
    6. Rinse and Repeat

    Other notes:
    *You must lose/fail in order for the stats to count. Exiting the mission will not update your statistics.
    * Any doors opened at any point of your save will count. I blasted 1 door after loading my cloud, yet the end-game statistics showed 4 (I opened 3 beforehand). See video.
    * The achievement should unlock in-game when you open your 100th treasure. For some, it may unlock after you failed or completed the level.
