Welcome to Connect 4x4, a modern twist on the classic game. The concept of the game is that 4 players compete to make a Connect 4 in two different dimensions. You can drops "rings" into a column and you can also drop "chips" into a column. Doing so you can Connect 4 by placing, for example; Chip, Chip, Ring, Chip, as long as each of them touches either vertically, horizontally or diagonally. This game is fairly easy and requires little skill, provided you've got access to 4 controllers.
You're probably looking at spending up to two hours on this game, which is a little longer than the other game packs. It's still is an easy and quick game to complete. With that, let's crack on!
We're going to set up a custom single player game of Original. For this achievement the goal is to just win a game against three AI opponents. There's not much I can help you with here in the way of tips but as far as any version of Connect 4 goes, try and set up your board so you have two ways of winning at any one time... Once you've won the match you'll unlock the following:
Next we're going to back all the way out to the "press start" menu. Load back into the game, this time bring three extra players with you and hook up your controllers! Time to nail the rest of the achievements!
Start by making a custom original mode game with one round wins. It is helpful to set the controllers up in order of their turns as it'll make it a little less confusing. When the game starts drop pieces into columns quickly, but still carefully, trying to make a Connect 4 for your main profile in less than 44 seconds. If your account gets to take their turns first it'll make life a little easier but it isn't essential. Make sure that when you drop your final piece to Connect 4 that you press the "Y" button so that you drop a blocker. Doing so will unlock the following two achievements:
4 x 4 in 44
This is a secret achievement. Unlock it to find out more about it.
Once you've got those achievements out of the way, head back out and make a custom Remix game. The goal in this game is to not only win but to use each of the power ups. All you need to do is make sure that your chip or ring is the first to fall into the power ups position. The only exception is the alien spaceship powerup, as it activates for the first piece dropped into that column.
After winning the match you'll unlock the following two achievements:
Win a game in all modes of Connect 4X4 using red chips only
Now there's only a little bit of grinding left... as per usual in these game packs! Back out and start up a custom Original game with one round wins. Once the game is up and running, we'll be working toward the last two achievements at the same time. Place your extra profile pieces horizontally, either from left to right or vice versa. You want to place your main account's pieces vertically, making a Connect 4, while also blocking your opponent's Connect 4. Continue doing this until you unlock the achievement for doing it 15 times.
Block a Connect 4 fifteen times in any game mode in Connect 4x4
All that's left is to continue winning matches until you've won enough to unlock the final achievement!
Win 20 games of Connect 4X4 in any game mode
All done! Congratulations!
