Outside of spending lots of time learning how to group the ghosts, there's no set "walkthrough" that will get you this achievement. The AI in Ms. Pac-Man is a little more advanced than original Pac-Man. Here are some tips that might help:

1) PRACTICE! I'm terrible at this game, and I still managed to 100% it. It can get very frustrating getting through levels 1-2 a bunch of times, only to die on 3. Overall this probably took me 50 tries. But, each try I got better. At first I could only make it past level 1. Then I started consistently beating level 2. Finally I beat level 3 after many attempts. If you find that you're getting too frustrated, take a break and come back to it later. Staying cool will help your reflexes.

2) This should be obvious, but start with level 1. Levels 1-3 are the easiest in the game.

3) Ghosts will track you, then go random for about 8 seconds. This can get you into trouble. The ghosts will take unexpected routes after following you a bit. This got me trapped on many occasions.

4) Use the warps to your advantage. You can buy yourself time and flip the map by using warps. On levels 1-2 the ghosts have a small delay when they use the tunnel, allowing you to gain some space. Always check the other side of the warp before you go through to make sure it's clear.

5) If you have a couple dots left and no power-ups, be patient! There's no timer, so don't rush. Set up your attack and use the warps to gain an advantage. Don't make a risky move that could get you eaten.

6) Dodge! Even with the improved AI, the ghosts can still be exploited. In certain situations you can do a quick "juke" move on the ghosts to get them moving in the other direction. If there's one a level above you, turn back, then forward again and sometimes the ghost will start travelling the opposite way.

7) Double tap the D-pad. The inputs for this game are not great. There were many times where I could've sworn I pressed a direction and the game just did not register it. When in precarious situations, always double tap whichever direction you need to go. It will save your life!

Good luck. I will post a video below, but as you can see, his path is pretty random. The starts worked well for me (first 10 seconds or so), but then I did my own thing.
