After having unlocked a power up, you can view it from the main menu by clicking on the lightning bolt icon.

In your power-ups menu, pick a powerup that you would like to upgrade and tap cn_A. This screen now shows you a summary of your power up, the current level, it's effect, and the cost of upgrading.

Tap cn_A again to spend your coins for an upgrade. You will need a total of 4080 coins to fully upgrade a single power up. This took me roughly 40 - 50 plays.

To level 1: 16
To level 2: 32
To level 3: 64
To level 4: 128
To level 5: 256
To level 6: 512
To level 7: 1024
To level 8: 2048

You can gain coins from pickups in the maze, both yellow and orange coins give a boost. As well as completing missions, and getting a free gift at the end of a game.

The video was unclear for me so I asked a friend and he replied with an amazing written guide!

This was written by Mr Rodster and the glitch was found by Manic Ado I take no credit for any of it.

OK, so here's the deal.

You can do the glitch at any time. You can't fuck it up.

First step is to choose a bonus and get it to 7. It does not matter which one you choose.

Second step is to earn 2048 coins but do not spend them.

Third step is to get it to where the number of dots you need to get the next bonus is small. Don't go over, because if you do you'll have to earn thousands of dots for the next bonus.

When all the above is accomplished, force quit the game. This saves to the cloud. Then start up the game and buy the upgrade from 7 to 8. That progresses the "upgrade all" achievement--the bar should move. Then play the game and get the dots needed for the next bonus. That progresses the "get all bonuses" achievement and again the bar should move.

Now, go to Manage Game and delete the local save twice.

Then start the game again. (In the video he goes back to the dashboard, but this is unnecessary. You can start directly from the Manage Game screen.) Repeat the purchase and the play, then delete, then repeat until you have the achievement.

Note: you can also use this technique for the missions. Complete a mission in-game, then get to the end screen but do not redeem the prize. Force quit. Delete the save (twice) and restart, play a short game where you die, and then redeem the prize. Watch the progress bar: after it goes up, delete the save and repeat.

The only challenging/time-consuming achievement given the above is the 16x ghost chain.
