    Or you can go to Dmbledore's site, where he has video guides for every challenge, and unlike most video guides, these were done while playing on the 360 and not the PC:

    Credit obviously goes to Dmbledore himself.

    Edit: it looks like the links on the page are now down. I've emailed Dmbledore to see if the videos will be going back online, or if they can be found elsewhere. Once I hear back, I'll update this solution accordingly.

    edit: In the comments, Slider257 points to a better/easier solution to the final advanced chamber. I had put that video into this solution but it would appear it now has gone down.

    There are levels 13-18 with advanced maps(6) that only unlock AFTER you beat the game. Thought this would be good information to know instead of searching everywhere.

    Timeless MagicIt is good to know, it's just better placed as a comment to the above solutions as opposed to its own solution :)

    This achievement requires you to beat the 14 challenge maps, and a further 6 advanced maps that were in the orange box version.

    For a good video guide on how to beat the advanced maps go to:

    For a written walkthrough (with pictures) of the challenge maps go to:

    There does not seem to be one website containing a video walkthrough of the challenge maps, but sickder666 has many good videos of how to beat them on youtube, and i must say i have been using them thus far and i find them very helpful.
