This isn't very hard, but does take some patience as you have to play through 50 levels of Survival mode.

After each round in Survival mode, it "Locks" the pieces that you were unable to eliminate during that round. You are unable to manipulate those locked pieces directly and can only remove them by moving other pieces next to them.

My tip for this is to ALWAYS concentrate on getting rid of the locked pieces first. Letting the locked pieces build up is what will kill you. If you keep the locked pieces under control you will get this achievement pretty easily after lasting 50 rounds.

I got it on my first try, and I don't think I'm particularly good at this game
StoodBridgeThis solution made my mind clear about this, i am going to try it later today or some day.

Thank you :)

SquintGravyThanks for the guide, it really helped. Basically my strategy was to put things in priorities (so if I couldn't find one, I would move on to the other): in order 6-piece Flowers/Star Flowers, Combos that break locked pieces, 3-star combos, Star/Regular/Regular combos, any combos.

I feel my above strategy works well because the 3-star combos ensure breathing space and a good clean section to work in. Good luck and remember to not get too stressed, this is a pretty simple achievement really.

SaltyTONTook a while, but got it first time.

Can you really die on this, surely it isn't possible? I'm terrible at this game, and it didn't take any effort or skill to get this achievement!

WayensProbably important to note that you don't have to do all 50 in one go. There's a quick save option that allows you to come back to a game if you get too bored to finish in one sitting. ;>
