    There are many ways to earn this, but I'll give a simple way I accomplished this.

    Whenever you are on a level where you have to clear Dark Fragments make sure you have the Hex Breaker assist that let's you destroy one layer of the Dark Fragment. Use that on the last move and this will pop. The earliest is level 7 or 8.

    I did this on Level 21 without too many problems. The levels before I feel are actually too easy so you'll almost always win without even needing the assists. Once you get past the early levels the game starts to actually become somewhat challenging and the assists can help you get over a level after failing.

    If you played Hexic (Windows) and already unlocked this on that version and you used all your assists there is a workaround so you can earn this without paying for more assists.

    Delete the game and redownload it. Set your phone to flight mode and load the game up. Play the tutorial levels until you get the hex breaker assist then use it on the last move of the next level. Connect your phone to the internet again and let the achievement sync. I would suggest deleting the game again to avoid any potential loss of progress. The next time you launch the game when connected to the internet it should keep your progress from windows 8.

    Using the hex breaker assist on a dark fragment level is a solid method but I've found a fail safe method providing you can meet the score requirement (which is stupidly easy). You'll need the free rotate assist - you get 3 given to you after level 12 - which basically lets you make a rotation, without needing to make a match and you'll also need level 20 (first timed level). If you're unsure which assist free rotate is it's the green one with a hexagon being circled by arrows.

    Then just follow these steps:
    - Start level 20 (ensuring you have a free rotate assist)
    - Gain the bare minimum score (5,000 points)
    - Use the free rotate on any 3 hexagons that won't create a match once rotated
    - Wait out the time
    - Since the free rotate was your last move achievement unlocked!

    Hope this helps!

    WOODY2211+1 from This also works with the shuffle as i did not have the free rotations i though i would give it a go with something else and POP it worked. Thank you.

    Just another option, when you get to level 12 you get 3 free rotation assists. This level has you clear the Anomalies to the bottom of the grid. There are 4 total so the goal is to get 3 cleared and the 4th within one rotation of the bottom. Then use the free rotation assist to spin the last Anomaly to the bottom.
