    Just some tips i pulled from the guide I made on x360a:

    This achievement is for beating all 100 levels

    -Learn to combo your combos This is the best tip I have, combining 3 line clears is nice, clearing 2 lines thick in 3 directions, especially for levels that have hexes in areas that cannot be gotten through normal combining. Even better however is combining a color clear with two line clears, it turns every hex of that color to a line clear, and immediately fires them. Learning to do this well is really all you need to finish this game.

    -Most levels are not timed, no need to act like they are, go ahead and think about more than the current move to make a juicy combo.

    -The anomaly drop levels drop the anomalies on specific turns, but its still important to get the earlier anomalies down fast, if you get two or more near the bottom it gets really hard

    -On anomaly levels with multiple obvious paths, try to clear one path and, if possible, exclusively clear hexes on that path so the anomalies drop onto it

    -On dark frag levels clear bottom first, specifically bottom corners, the top may largely clear itself

    -When on tricky dark frag levels make note of where you were having trouble clearing and clear it first

    -Timed levels are usually pretty easy to beat, but hard to 3 star, at least for me, so I tried to steer clear of them for The Number achievement

    BurdFinished Win 8 version. WP syncs level progress but not achievements very well. Completed level 100 without the game crashing finally and no achievement. Avoid this game if you have short patience.

    I've read a number of people who seem to have gotten stuck on level 94, so here is the key to how I did it. I was struggling quite a bit with the middle bottom anomaly every time, until I realized that I could move the bottom middle anomaly to one side. Try moving it as early in the level as you can, and then it opens things up quite a bit.

    This solution will provide an additional option for those who've been struggling in this game. It involves farming power-ups to increase your likelihood of winning any level.


    Power-UPS exploit.
    As far as I am concern this exploit is only workable for WP. If you attempt this for the Windows 8 version you are likely to load up level 1 local state instead of retaining your current progress. You can only obtain 3 different types of boost through this exploit. They are the following:

    4th consecutive day - Line clear
    9th consecutive day - Color clear
    15th consecutive day - Flower clear
    Cycle repeats

    Procedure
    1. Move clock 1 day forward. You will be put to offline. Your local state retain your current progress.
    1.5 If you see level 1 , exit game . Sync time to match real world time. Log in to XBL to retain your progress. Try step 1 again
    2. Repeat step 1 until you are rewarded with a power-up. Once you earned the power-up, do not close the game. Synchronize your date/time to match internet time while your game is still running. Log on to your account to sync your save to the cloud.

    * You must log on each day consecutively to receive the reward. Moving back in time will not reset the counter. Your local file will keep track of the latest future date you logged on.
    * You should sync your save by signing in whenever you receive a boost from the daily. If you do not sync, the boost will not save to your profile. I tried 15 consecutive days without syncing my profile to only receive the flower boost.
    *The clear boosts work best when you use them together (Line. Color, and Flower ). Forming clusters of clear boosts will likely clear majority of the board.


    An example

    Current Date : 5/26/14
    Day 1 - 6/1/14 - 1/4 reward line boost
    Day 2 - 6/2/14 - 2/4 reward line boost
    Day 3- 6/3/14 - 3/4 reward line boost
    Day 4 - 6/4/14 - You are rewarded with line clear boost. Do not close the game. Sync to real world time and log on to XBL account to save boost. Turning the clock back will not end the streak. ( 6/4/15 ) will be stored.
    Day 5 - 6/5/14 - 1/5 color clear boost
    .......
    Day 9 - 6/9/14 - You are rewarded with a color clear. Do not close the game. Sync to real world time and log in to your XBL account to save boost to your profile.
    .......
    Day 15 - 6/15/14 You are rewarded with Flower clear boost. Do not close the game. Sync to real world time and log in to your XBL account to save boost to your profile.
