cn_A: Gas
cn_LSc or cn_dpad - Steering

This achievement can and will be frustrating at first. The steering is very sensitive, which can be a nuisance until you get the handle of it. That is why I highly recommend using the D-Pad for control. Controlling your car through the D-Pad is less sensitive, which causes less issues down the road.

Anyways, the object is to collect dots that randomly appear on the play field. You collect the dots by running over them with your car.

Achievement wise, getting 40 dots in 60 seconds comes with very little breathing room. Remember that this is a dot every 1.5 seconds, so you have to move quick and not stop to breathe. However, it is definitely not impossible.

Before I get to the tips, here is what I recommend shooting for split-wise:

50 sec. left = 6 or 7 dots
40 sec. left = 13 or 14 dots
30 sec. left = 19 or 20 dots
20 sec. left = 26 to 28 dots
10 sec. left = 31 to 33 dots (31 is REALLY pushing it and the randomness of the dot placement would have to be perfect to get 40 in time)

Finally, here are some tips to hopefully make things go more smoothly for you.

1. Follow the time guide above! wink
2. When controlling the vehicle, you can feather the gas to turn the opposite direction easier and quicker.
3. Hitting the blocks will slow you down majorly. The blocks are sticky like glue and burn your precious seconds.
4. You CAN make 1, maybe 2 mistakes and still get 40 dots. It all depends on the dot placement.
5. Which leads to this important tip. IF the dots start spreading apart a long way across the screen many times in a short span, reset the run. The closer the dots are, the better.
6. Finally, don't panic when you are close. Take a deep breath and focus on one dot at a time. Remember, practice makes perfect. wink

I apologize if this is lengthy, but I wanted to cover everything to give you the best chance at this achievement. Good luck and if you leave a negative vote, let me know why. It might be something in the guide I can fix. smile
