There are 195 levels in this game. If you get 2 stars on every level, you'll have 390 stars. That means you'll need 3 stars on at least 110 levels to get 500 stars, then 2 stars on the other 85.

Obviously, if you can only manage to get one star on some levels then you'll need to get 3 stars on more than 110, but 110 is the absolute bare minimum with the levels that the game currently offers. This will be much easier if you decide to pay for extra power-ups and lives, but it won't be necessary. It'll just take longer if you choose to play through for free.

As mentioned in the other solutions, there are methods you can use to not lose lives (dashboard and quit), but you do risk losing some progress if you do this, as the game doesn't seem to save after every level.

Also, this isn't guaranteed, but there is the possibility that the game will eventually be updated with more levels. If that ever happens, this achievement could become a lot easier. But until then, just remember, 110 levels.

Edit: If you're going to vote negative, I'd appreciate if you'd leave a comment as to why. Since the game randomises the gems, there is literally no way to provide an in-depth guide for the levels. It'll be different for every single person. What I've written is pretty much the only kind of guide you're going to get for this achievement outside of general gameplay tips.
capicawlHas anybody tried the peggle solution to try and get stars?

Zootown MontanaWhat is the "Peggle solution"?
Posted by Zootown Montana on 30 Sep 15 at 14:40
Unobtainable?

TehJofusThe achievement's definitely obtainable, the tracking says 7 people already have it.

Whether or not they paid to get it so quickly, though...that's another question.

Conor x420aI'm on level 180 with 429 stars right now and have not paid a penny towards this game, the achievement is very much obtainable just very time consuming as my playtime is close to 70 hours anyone who's done it in less has most likely made in game purchases

Dr Tinus NLit is possible to getit without paying (im doing it that way), but it just takes a shitload of time. The game basically wants you to pay for stuff, as i need one more move to complete a level a lot of the time. I refuse to pay so yeah... it takes long :P

capicawlThe Peggle solution is deleting your save, replaying offline to get stars and when you log back online, your stars synch with the ones you have and adds to them. But it's been confirmed that this does not work.

dale smeegleAre the gems definitely random? I have played one level three times and the gems always fall in the same pattern?
Posted by dale smeegle on 14 Oct 15 at 18:08
TehJofusIf you replay the same level, they'll stay the same. But if you play another level in between, or turn off the game, the gems change.

mereel1i only have 49 stars unlocked, but in the tracking it says i have 56, i think playing the same level and gaining three stars will add to your total
Posted by mereel1 on 16 Oct 15 at 04:57
Dr Tinus NLno it does not mereel1. You probably had to redo some levels, cause the save system in this game is fucked up. You have to back out to the start title for it to save correctly.

FullMoonBeaverI find I get a couple of easy levels, then I get one insanely tricky level. Stuck on level 41 right now, and its doing my nut in.

BlayzsI found an easy solution. When starting the game you do not use life, and when it is over and ruined it and writes it to Too Bad, then you press the Xbox button to quit and restart the game. New hands will give you and your life does not lose it.

CRAZE KILERThis is far from an easy achievement, I swear the game is rigged so you will lose and spend money on it.

CrackerlocThis probably won't get answered b4 I beat the level, but: does any1 know which character I need to use for level 183?
Posted by Crackerloc on 03 Feb 16 at 00:45
CrackerlocNever mind that shit . after 6 hrs on that 1 level I have up and went back to get stars on levels I had already beaten.

Iron Man TStarkI personally find it hard to appreciate a guide to getting an achievement by someone that hasn't got it themselves
Posted by Iron Man TStark on 13 Jun 16 at 22:50
TehJofusYeah, me too.
Posted by TehJofus on 13 Jun 16 at 22:53
EdweirddYeah it would make more sense if they had the achievement, but he really said all there is to getting the achievement. He gave the math that's needed to get the 500 stars in the least amount possible. Just because he doesn't have the achievement doesn't invalidate his guide, he just didn't grind out the game long enough to get it.
Posted by Edweirdd on 18 Jun 16 at 22:36
That505GuyJust a quick tip you can redo the daily reward so that you get a power up everyday

Just grab the reward if you don't want it don't press anything hit the guide then hit pause on the frozen build then manage game then delete your save from CONSOLE only. Reload the game and try again. It's worth it

rapid riot boyFinally got this achievement! I didn't spend a single penny on this game. Took me 120 hours.
Posted by rapid riot boy on 01 Jul 16 at 17:48
That505GuyGot this today finally!!! Didn't spend a penny either 😀 it would also be good to note that on level 175 you get 15 snowballs which are great for getting those last stars for your 500 😀 just go through your map and do any that you got 1 star on near the end of a mission pop an extra moves for the 5 bonus to give you that boost for the 3 star. Just things to think about

Piyi PiyiI found a glitch/bug, but I can't do it again, it was luck (I don't speak english, sorry about that), maybe somebody finds how to do it.

Well, I was playing on Xbox One, "Beat the clock" level (early levels, when Anna and Elsa are childrens). I was trying to get 3 stars, I was so concentrated that I accidentally hit the "more time" power up (I don't have any power up, so the game opened the "buy more power ups" window) While the buying window was opening, I pressed two times A and one time B, and the game buys me 1 more time power up, but my account have excatly the same USD that I had (1.73 USD).

I have an US account, but my Xbox country is set to Chile, so every price has show in CLP (Chilean pesos). I don't know if this can affect the glitch. And I can't do it again, and the other thing that I don't know if this glitch is only for timed levels or not.

If you want to try it, please note that I don't know the "more time" powerup price. In CLP, is less than 800 and more than 700. (1 USD = 651 CLP), and if somebody finds how to do the glitch, please write a solution :D

Im the LoraxStuck on this shit at like 447 stars. Even bought the summer levels (which suck BTW) summer levels hard AF angry
Posted by Im the Lorax on 07 Oct 16 at 16:32
OdinEliteDo the dlc levels count? I got some stars in summer and it doesn't look like it counts. +1 though.
Posted by OdinElite on 10 Apr 17 at 05:33
Im the LoraxIt does count. I bought the summer levels and that was the only way I finished it.
Posted by Im the Lorax on 11 Apr 17 at 13:25
tynderiCould you please update the solution to add the current level amount and the summer levels?

Summer levels can be unlocked if you complete enough levels so no need to pay with real money.

UberniXiThis achievement is terrible. I'm so close, but the last 50 are giving me a headache.

SkinstakovicHow helpful are the DLC levels? Are they difficult to get many stars on?
Posted by Skinstakovic on 09 Oct 19 at 09:05
Maw N PawI'm at 483 at the moment and level 195ish. It's a nightmare of a game to do legit without paying a single amount into the game.
