    First you need to keep at default settings which is set in the main menu under options. Do not alter the number of starting lives or the difficulty.

    Each level consists of four games (Battle Tanks, I/O Tower [Grid Bugs], Light Cycles and MCP Cone) which need to be completed to advance to the next level. To get User you need to reach level 12. You do not need to complete level 12, the achievement will unlock once you start level 12. Each of the levels have a set pattern. Below I have posted videos of how I complete each of the 4 challenges on each level (including level 12, which is not needed for the achievement) with step by step commentary. A lot of the patterns repeat themselves, so once you learn how to do it, you will be able to do it again when the pattern comes back at another level. This makes this achievement less daunting and a bit easier. To get User it is a case of learning what to do in these videos and practicing. What makes this difficult is the limited number of lives you get. You start off with two spare lives and you are awarded another extra life after 10,000 points, which will occur around level 2/3, after that you do not get anymore.

    In the spoiler tag below I have put my abbreviated notes I made for each level for my own personal use. They may be of help as they tell you what to expect and when levels repeat. I also put a difficulty rating on each: 1* is easy, 2* is not too bad and 3* are the more tricky ones.

    There is only a few things I would change with these videos

    Level 8 - Do the light cycles just like he does level 6

    Level 9 - Do the light cycles like he does level 3, except go lower when you cut left by 1/4th of a square
