Achievement FAQ

Since quite a lot of people don't know how to get certain achievements they don't really go for it. They merely get them by luck, which lowers the value of the achievements. So to help people understand how to get the achievements, I created this topic with the intention to see more people trying to get achievements! I do not know how to get all achievements, so if you see any mistakes or you have something to add, just reply and I'll update this post.

As far as I know, the requirements to get an achievement are:

  • Minimum of 4 players, guests count
  • Ranked or Unranked does not matter.
  • Either FFA or Team game.
  • Basic powerups or a minimum of 10 powerups selected out of the first three rows of powerups.
  • Only Basic and Premium [first three rows] powerups can be used to unlock achievements, not special Powerups.

Warning: sometimes when you've unlocked an achievement it disappears after a new login. This is because the server/game thinks you aquired the achievement in an unfair way. Unfair behaviour: If you finish a game below minimum time( 2 minutes), if you play a perfect game(10 rounds) or if you leave/rejoin the room while you play the game.

 

The normal achievements:

 I Know My Way
Stay alive for at least 1 minute.
Tip: don't die.

 No Smoke and Mirrors
Win a game (not just a round) without picking up a single powerup. Thanks gandalfx
Tip: set powerup drop probability to 1% or let Premium do it and play a Team game. Thanks five

 Loose Lips Sink Ships
Type hell of a lot during a game and die a couple times while typing. (exact requirements unknown)

 Girl look At That Body
Get fat powerup stacked 5 times and survive.

 The Avenger
Win a team round when you're the only one left on your team vs. the 4 players of the other team. Unfortunately you can no longer unlock this achievement
Tip: don't attack players of the other team, just try to camp while your team kills the opponents.

 Cooling Down
Survive 5 rounds in a row on team Cool. Unfortunately this achievement is no longer available

 Warming Up
Survive 5 rounds in a row on team Hot.

 FFA Plays
Play 100 FFA games.

 FFA Wins
Win 100 FFA games.

 Team Plays
Play 100 Team games.

 Team Wins
Win 100 FFA games.

 GlobeTrotter

This achievement was never available.

 

 

The special achievements plus which powerup they unlock:

 Beautiful Geometry - Green Old Snakey powerup 
Survive at least 3 Old Snakey [aka corner] powerups in a row.
Tip: red and green corners count(If friend has unlocked the item and helps you to get the achievement)

 Speeding Ticket - Sharp Corners powerup 
Survive at least 3 speed powerups at the same time, either green and/or red. Thanks gandalfx
Tip: get Big Hole and/or  Open Wall powerup and then 3 Speed powerups so u don't crash.

 The Collector - Powerup Movement powerup 
Collect all 10 of the first 15 powerups in one round. Does not have to be a premium game.

 Doubtful Artist - Green Eraser powerup 
Collect 4 times an Eraser powerup in one round. Thanks gandalfx
Tip: only blue Eraser powerups count.

 One Finger - One Finger powerup 
You have to win a game (not just a round) whilst playing only with one finger.
Tip: ​put the same key for both controls so you won't be tempted to fail. Also, play in a team so it's easier to win!

 

As stated in the beginning: if you have anything to add or correct, just reply and I'll update this post!

ONE FINGER

Before the game set the controls on the ONE BUTTON (ie 2 x arrow to the left), and if you win your game (the best way to play 2 personal teamach) you will receive finger

I was under the impression that they didn't want these explicit how-to's floating around in order to keep the mystery alive. However I like it, so here are some additions:

No Smoke No Mirrors: Win a game (not round, entire game) without picking up any power-ups. This may be a little tricky, they have a habit of popping up right in front of you.

Speed Ticket: Survive three speed (red and/or green) at the same time. That means their effects have to overlap and you have to go extremely fast without dying.

Doubtful artist: Collect 4 (not 5) erasers in one round.

Might be, but it is so unclear to what they mean or how to get them. I'm not going to give a tuturial on how to get them, merely the requirements, like that for One Finger you need to win a game while I always thought it was just a round.

And creating this was a hell of a lot of work, so if they delete it I'm gonna be o so sad. Blum 3

Doesn't give me the name and can't find the name in topics either plus the hint is not very helpfull so makes it kinda hard. Achievements are nice, but it should be clear how to get them so people will go for them. If you don't know how to get something, lots of people will just leave it for what it is.

anyone know wat the globe is yet? and is there someone with a better description of the " boat achievement "?

 

 

 

Offline

the 'unknown achievement' is the only one left on my list, so if anyone knows how to get it, you can pm me and I'll team up with you to get the other ones (like one finger, speeding ticket or any other pu) 

About the 'loose lips sink ships', one of the easiest, just type a lot during a game... every second that you're not playing, just type, and die 1 or 2 times while typing. That'll get you the pu!

Indeed, just as the description is saying, just type a lot, it is very easy to get. Currently, I know no-one who has got the globe-achievement, so if you ever find someone, please ask him to post the name + how to get it here.

I noticed that, for the collector achievement, you don't need to collect all basic powerups, it's enough to get 10 unique ones! Atleast, I got rewarded the achievement in a game where some of the basic powerups were not used!

 the world have something to do with exercise alot, so I think you should play alot whit yourself either  one long match or many matches in short time, or play onranked matches..

No Smoke No Mirrors tip: if you are a premium member, use custom powerups; and set the 'overall drop probablity' to 1% (min. 10 pu) → or tell it a premium member, and play in teams; if you win the winner team will get this achievement!

that's like a golden tip there you gave five! 

I wish someone would do the same with the unknown achievement... you won't get it if you play one long match, tried that... was busy for like 10mins but still nothing... maybe if you play enough unranked matches you'll get it... because it has something to do with exercise....

Setting the drop probability to 1% is indeed a good tip! I'll add it to the list. Playing in teams might indeed make winning a bit easier.

It's a fake, the achievement should be blue.

Edit your first post with the One Finger picture, as it's the same as the one above.

Finally, i have a hint for the globe archievement.
The source code of the game says something like this:

"Travelled the height of the two developers of Curve Fever, together!"
"Travelled the length of the entire source code of Curve Fever!"
"Travelled the distance between the homes of the two developers"
"The distance from Geert's home to the airport"
"I have completed a full on-screen marathon in distance on Curve Fever!"

For me it says you have a long way to go Smile but that means that the game would save the distance in each/all games. kind of funny. Now good luck.

If I play on my 120" beamer screen I move halve a meter a second, whereas on a 13" laptop screen I move very slowly. So seems like strange conditions for an achievement.

Btw, how did you get your hands on the source code?

Last information I have is that the code for the achievement is broken but that it will be fixed in one of the next updates, together with better descriptions how to get the achievements Wink

"Only Basic and Premium powerups can be used to unlock achievements, not special Powerups."

 

What is exactly meant by that?

Pandemic's picture
Offline

That the 'Special' powerups, the ones you can unlock by unlocking achievements, do not count for the achievements. So you can get every achievement without having any other.

That's not true that special powerups can't be used. I achieved 'beautiful geometry' by taking green old snakey powerup

Hello achievement guys Smile

I have over 1000 plays in curvefever ffa and i dont have a single golden achievement. I am not complaining its just that I love to make room with only green corner powerup and I can not do it by myself since I dont have the geometrichal achievement. I have survived 3 red snakey pu`s gazillion times and I still did not get it. On the other hand 2 friends of mine had it by just playing, they were not even aware how to get it they just did.

So I am begging all the mighty achievement players to pour a little wisdom here and tell me what I need to do.

btw do any of you guys call the green or red snakey the "tron powerup"? Blum 3 in my clique we do it all the time because the 90 degrees curves are similar to tron legacy the game on wii.

Cheers,

The description beneath The Collector achievement is incorrect. You have to get all power-ups that are selected in the game and in order to get an achievement you have to select at least 10 power-ups. THESE DON'T HAVE TO BE THE BASIC ONES.

How do I know?

I didn't select any basic power-ups and still got the achievement :3

Offline

Hello,

I have to inform you that the instructions provided here to get the Beautiful Geometry achievement are false. It says that you have to survive at lease 3 snakey powerups in a row and that only red ones count. Well I have played with both green and red corners only alot but never get it. Then one day, we played a game where there were both corner powerups and the 2 speeds, and I think couple of more but not all  special powerups. Me and my 2 friends both got the achievement by just grabbing the GREEN one and do some curving, super easy. It was some funny becouse I know alot of people who try hard to get it, but in the end we just got it by accident. Pretty bad, I suppose.

a tip to all the achievements: 

*team.

*full screen. (more space to wait for erasers)

*custom pick minimum 10 items and ofc pick the items you need for the achievements. 

*in custom pick, put it to 100% drop rate

*4 players (2 in each team)

*talk the people into not killing each others and help each other to achieve all the achievements u need.

And for the "get them all"... you don't need all in basic... I didn't have "fat" or "reverce"... so maybe it is just all the (10) diffrent items in one round

Clan: ES

but its not correct that guests dont counting, i played a game vs 5 guests and i got the finger achievement so its incoorect and i got also the achievement that "i win a game without taking a item" so there is a mistake
