    The lateral game mode is found in the free play menu. By default it is an area game mode, make sure you turn this to survival with arena mode small being your only modifier (everything else normal/none).

    The red squares follow the same 6-legged pattern of 3 blocks, once you've learnt this it's not too hard. My tactic was to start in the centre and head to out to the edge as the legs reach centre. Then either sit still or dip left/right, as needed, before the legs from the opposite side arrived, to dodge the orange and pinks. Don't sit still too long. Then head back to centre and repeat.

    Not the best guide, but I felt it worth mentioning as I spent over an hour trying to complete this in area mode, regularly surviving past 30 seconds as I was trying to fill the circle area % for 25 secs....

    GoDSnafuYou sure you're playing in Survival mode? If you can do the rest of the game this isn't too bad once you learn the pattern. Hang in there, you'll get it.

    JeroenRosOne thing that helps me if when you start the wave of red legs (as mentioned in the solution itself) always try to move towards one of the 'pieces of pie' without an orange spawnpoint on the edge!

    FireRaiser1985Is this glitched? Tried both on Xbox and PC, but no pop.

    EDiT: Nevermind. Got it on PC with the following settings:


    Speed: Normal
    Size: Normal
    Collision: None

    Type: Normal
    Size: Small
    Power Ups: OFF

    ZalexzyUse pause/unpause, you can still see your dot and enemies and plan next move. Esc on pc, start on xbox.

    andreluigoA big tip that makes all difference!
    If you have an Wacom or similar you can make getting all achievements easier on PC because it's more responsive and easy of control using its pen.~
    I only got all achievements because of it. After level 70 a lot of levels were quite impossible for me!
