The basics of one arcade game is simply:

1. Defeat 4 enemies
2. Exit the area (you'll have to see the load screen).
(Some areas, like some of the doors in the main tent in Big Top, doesn't need these screens)

If you don't want to continously load the previous file without saving, wait with this achievement until you get acess to act II:

1. Pick easy difficulty. It's simply faster.

2. Pick one area you prefer in act I or II. I recommend Valley of Spirits since there are so many enemies that only need one hit there.

3. Take down four enemies

4. Exit the area

5. Either take take four enemies on that side of the exit or just return back.

6. If all enemies are defeated go to another area in the act you prefer.


if you want to continue in the same area, (especially after all enemies in all areas are defeated) visit the other act and enemies in the first act will respawn.

7. After 80 enemies you should be done.

A note:
If you visit all areas in Atlantis enemies will respawn without you having to switch acts. Some of the enemies there need special finishing moves, so the area can be a bit frustrating.
PapaTheHutI got the 15 in a row awhile ago, and I haven't got the 20 yet. I'm pretty sure I'm doing exactly what I did in the past, but it's just not coming up. Any suggestions?

JAYMATiKFor the two comments above, from comments from the 100 arcade wins solution, if you die the game resets your arcade win total back to the last save point, so if this is your first arcade experience, that will be zero. My advice would be to save your game at 10 or 20 win intervals. I went to the fridge for a beer after the consecutive 15 wins, died, and had to redo 20 wins for this achievement. Use a flying character, must faster.

HITMAN23DBThis achievement along with teh master didn't pop for me. I used the same method and ended up getting the destroyer achievement. Tried clearing cache and deleting game info but that didn't work. Next attempt will be on another box.
