    As you round a corner, holding the joystick/d-pad down in the direction you wish to travel will cause Pac-Man to emit sparks and receive a minor speed boost. Simply use this method of cornering (it helps if you start holding the new direction a pellet or two before you hit the corner) for a TOTAL of one second or more in a single game. At the end of the game, your accomplishments will be shown and the achievement will pop.

    Mr FiddlerNot that this is a difficult achievement, but I would note that it's simpler to do on the easy difficulty mode because Pac-Man moves so much slower. When I first began playing this game it didn't seem to work for me as I started on the harder difficulties. Might depend on the maze though.

    Sindarin EagleI'm fairly sure that this is not total sparking time during the game, but rather that you need to emit sparks for at least a second in one go. (It's trivial on beginner at the start of the level; just go down or up to the top of the screen and slide along the unbroken side.)

    As Ronin Prox said, you just have to hold down the joystick/d-pad in the direction you want to go around a corner. One thing to add which helped me out. Play the level on the easiest difficulty, i believe it's called beginner? Do this because the game speed starts from 1, so pac-man is insanely slow, which results in taking longer to actually turn the corner.
