Okay... so this is completely random to get. It isn't too hard, just a large number of retries to get!

You get 75 seconds to locate as many flags as you can. You always start at the upper-left corner. As soon as you start the game, press the "A" button, and you'll either be shown the direction the flag is, or how many spaces away it is (sometimes a bomb will be under the start position, so if that happens... move one space right away and press "A"). You'll see an arrow pointing the direction towards the flag, usually diagonally. When this happens, I push up, which puts me at the "bottom" of the screen (the game movement wraps around the screen when you are at the edge). Every time you move to a new location, quickly press "A" to see where you need to go (either a direction or a number of spaces - you don't get both).

If you are on the left side of the screen and the number of spaces says, "8" - push to the left to appear on the right and hit "A" to see where to go. Strategies like this will get you closer quickly, as opposed to going directly across the screen.

Bombs (as well as the flags) will be in a different location each time you find a flag, so remembering where a bomb is only matters until you find a flag.

It took me about 10 or 15 minutes to get this, but I figured I'd write a simple guide for anyone who was having trouble. You might get the 10 flags you need the first time you try it, or it may take you an hour or more... hard to say. As with any achievement that frustrates me if I have trouble getting it... I'd just go after something else and come back to it later. Good luck!
