So true. Droplitz was sooooo annoying.

Yeah, it's not that hard. Got it on my third try. Even got the Fringe Benefit achievement.

With keyboard and with xbox360 pad, my record was 9,900,000, no matter how many times I tryed it.

The first time I tryed with the mouse, I did 10,800,000. In a few more atemps... 12,300,000.

With the mouse it's really easy.

P.S.: and without using the "sneaky way", just playing at regular speed.

I hate to be one of those people but, compared to this Droplitz was so easy. I absolutely CRUSHED the high score on that on my second attempt, like several times over. First attempt I didn't even know how to play the game. Yet this one is killing me.

I found Droplitz easy. This is ridiculously hard. I cannot for the life of me get beyond 3,000,000 each level.

The difference between this and Droplitz is that the latter is actually fun to play. The Bonus Mode in Shatter isn't.

Lol, couldn't disagree more. Droplitz was terrible and boring. Shatter is more my speed.

Oops, never mind. Missed a page.

I don't know, I don't find it is this hard. I haven't played it for 3 month and instantly got 14 million again. Just see that you shot the balls straight away.

I guess the difference is, Droplitz requires planning and a little quick thinking, reflexes don't really come into play. Shatter is 90% reflexes, really. So it kinda makes sense that a lot of people enjoy one but not the other.

Didn't realize there were 3 modes. Made it bit easier.

Main point: These Treasure Hunt achievements are supposed to be a pick up and play thing. I suck at Chime, got that one. I took a few minutes in L4D2 in single player to snatch the zombie one, no problem...
My absolute best with any approach at all whatsoever and NO, I CANNOT DO THIS. It shouldn't take anyone more than 5 tries to achieve. 9,000,000 would be fine, but this is just too hard.
If you can do it, good for you, but some people can't and that's wrong.

Agreed :P They just want you to buy the game and play it so you'll recommend it to friends. There's NO reason to make it harder than 2 or 3 tries, if anything that is counter-productive because now you're jarateed off and will tell everyone else not to bother. It's fun to make it more than just "load the game for achievement!" but this is just dumb.

100% this! I know it kinda sounds like a jerk thing to say but its true. Almost every other achievement could be eared within less then 30 minutes. I know other people have gotten it (and congrats to them) but should't it be an achievement "everyone"
can get like the rest.

You have 44 hours left to complete the objective, stop complaining and continue playing.

This game is jarateing me off beyond belief.

Reflexes + Luck != Skill.


Droplitz was a walk in the park, maybe because that actually required a brain, instead of fast reflexes.
