First of all; don't worry. This achievement is VERY easy. I got golds on my first attempt at the majority of the levels. The basic strategy I used was to upgrade my earthquake as quickly as possible, then spam that through about half the game. When the game introduces the annoying gorilla robots that stop your earthquakes, towards the end of the game, switch to upgrading and spamming your lightning attacks on objectives and houses alike. The level three lightning is very strong and will take down houses and enemies quickly. The only level that will really give you any trouble is the K.R.I.S.S. boss fight which is very luck-based. See the solution for more info on that.

Quick rundown of the levels and what elements I spammed:

Sunny Day Farm
Spam earthquakes on everything. The time might be a little tight on this one since everything is so spread out, so you might want to come back with upgraded stuff.

Hysteria Lane
The Park
Earthquakes all day.


Mountain Village
There are annoying gorillas in this level, but there's not that many of them and you can get by just spamming earthquakes.

Research Facility
Gorillas galore. Try to spam some earthquakes in an area before the enemies get there, then finish that area off with lightning before going off and repeating the process in a different area.

Go down about one screen when the level starts, so you can just see the vortex without being sucked in by it. When it goes down, immediately launch a tornado level 1 (as it's the fastest to launch and you don't need the upgrades for this) and head to the left side of the screen as it's the easiest place to gather up several grenades. With 3-5 grenades around you (you can stay still for a bit to suck grenades towards you if they bounce around), head straight for the middle of the vortex and hit B and down on the left stick when you're very, very close. This should drop 2-3 grenades right in front of the boss. You need to hit it with 2-5 grenades every time it launches any to have a shot, so this one will take some grinding before you luck out and get it.

Tropics Port
GORILLAS EVERYWHERE. Just spam nothing but the level 3 lightning attack and you'll be fine.

For some reason, they decided to tone down the difficulty of the last level... It has towers instead of annoying enemies, so just locate and destroy the towers that screw with your earthquake and then spam that. Head back to heal whenever you need to and you should still easily get both the gold and the $9,000,000,000 destruction achievement.

Pretty easy. Hide behind the shield generators to have the boss destroy them, then launch level 3 lightning a bit in front of it to damage it. Run away to heal when you need to.
