3. ARCADE GAME SERIES: Pac-Man Rounds 1-17

About half of the achievements for this game come from progressing through a lot of rounds and eating the bonus fruits, which is pretty similar to the other games in the series. These are the easiest to obtain, especially since you can choose any round you were once on and will have five lives when doing so (assuming you change these options in the settings). If you've ever played Super Smash Bros. on the WiiU or 3DS, you'll recognize these items you need to collect from one of Pac-Man's charged attacks.

The level layout itself never changes, but the ghosts become increasingly more difficult to run away from over time and after consecutive levels. Every once in a while you'll be given a cutscene, and the ghosts should revert back to a slower speed before quickly building back up in later rounds. As you could imagine, there isn't a whole lot to say for these achievements other than the fact that you can always quit out of a round if you're low on lives, which will allow you to restock at five when you come back to it.

Rounds 1-5

As you start the game off, you'll be given the opportunity to eat a few different types of fruits after enough pellets have been eaten in the level. You can get a Cherry in Round 1, a Strawberry in Round 2, an Orange in Rounds 3-4, and an Apple in Round 5.

You'll also get two achievements for clearing these five first rounds. You only need to get to Round 17 for these types of achievements, so you're pretty much a quarter done with standard level progression already.

Rounds 6-10

You'll be able to get an Apple in Round 6 too, so if you're having a hard time getting it in Round 5, you can try to get it here too. After the apple is the Melon, a delicacy found in Rounds 7-8. After that is a Galboss from Galaga, which appears in Rounds 9-10. It'll be around this time that, if you're not a pro at Pac-Man, you might have to reset every time you clear a round so you can restart with five lives.

Rounds 11-15

The last two items you'll need to eat are within these five rounds. First is the Bell in Rounds 11-12, and after that is the Key in Round 13 onward. When you get to the end of Round 15, you'll almost be done with the majority of the game.

Rounds 16-20

All you have to do now is finish Round 17, so feel free to stop playing after you clear the round. At Round 17, the ghosts will be so resistant to Super Pellets that they'll just change directions after you eat them; you won't ever see them turn blue for a split second due to how tough they've become from Round 13 to here.

Round 17 Cleared

Clear round 17!
