3. Microsoft Treasure Hunt (Win 8) Story walkthrough

The next set of achievements will all come through natural gameplay, as when they unlock is different for everyone, I will add them here on top of this page.

After your first time hitting a trap and taking damage you will unlock.

Level 1
Play through level 1 without picking up any gold. Be careful to only move small steps at a time so your character do not unintentionally run over some gold. When you exit level 1, you will be rewarded with the next achievement.

Level 2
Continue your adventure to the exit without picking up any gold. When you reach the exit of level 2 you will unlock the next achievement.
Note: This achievement is known to be buggy. If it does not unlock, you will need to try again in a new game. It is up to you if you immediately start a new game, or continue with the rest first and retry it when you got all of the rest.

The next achievement requires a little bit of your attention. You need at least 500 gold coins and you need to spend them all to unlock an achievement. The further you become, the more difficult is gets because you will have way too much gold coins to spend them all in the shop. The easiest is at the beginning of the game, so press "Menu" and choose "New Game".

Level 1
Play through level 1 and pick up all the gold. While looking for gold, dig all dirt without stepping into a trap. If you are successful, you will be rewarded with the next achievement. Exit the level and you will automatically enter the shop. Buy the amulet for 50 gold.

Level 2 - 5
Continue picking up gold until you have exactly 600 gold. Make sure you do not exit level 5! A small pile of gold is worth 3 gold, a big pile of gold is worth 8 gold and a gold bar is worth 30 gold. Watch out if you have the lucky clover active as it doubles the value of the picked up gold.
Note: Once you are close to 600 (around 500 gold), do not enter any gold mines anymore and calculate how many small and big piles you have to pick up to get EXACTLY 600 gold. Once you got that amount, die, revive yourself by using the amulet. You will spawn at the previous shop. Buy the second amulet for 100 gold. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING ELSE! Now die again without picking up any other gold, revive yourself with the amulet and you will be back at the shop. Now buy the third amulet for 500 gold. You will be rewarded with the next 2 achievements.

Now start a new game for the last time, by pressing menu and clicking on "New Game".

Level 1 - 10
Play through the game. Pick up as much gold as you can, enter all gold mines by watching the same ad every time. For the achievement you cannot die. It is okay to lose hearts and to lose shields but if you die and are forced to use the amulet you must restart. The achievement appears to not unlock for some people if they lose a heart, so try your best to NOT LOSE ANY HEARTS. Shop anything you like in each shop but when possible put focus on the upgrades.

Level 11
Finish this level without placing any flags! Using a map is allowed, but do not place any flag yourself. While you make your way through the exit, make sure you still do not die. Reaching the exit will give you the next two achievements.
Positive Glitch Alert: If you accidentally or intentionally place a flag, continue to level 12 anyway. Once the achievement "Didn’t even Break a Sweat!" unlocks, step into traps until you die. The other achievement "Extra Careful" will unlock too. (Credit to DTI April).

I cannot give you a favourite level to try out the next achievements as the levels are random. Be on the lookout for levels with bats. Kill 5 bats in a row, not necessary in one level, without killing any other creature. Unfortunately, the creatures are generated randomly.
Hint: Have a lot of dynamite sticks in possession. When the only path is blocked by another creature other than a bat, you will need to blow up walls to make another path.

Why did it have to be Bats?

Defeat 5 bats without defeating any other monsters in-between
