Achievers Anonymous: Swarm

What’s Up TQ Fam? Welcome to another installment of Achievers Anonymous. If you’re unfamiliar with what’s going on here, please refer to our previous articles for more information. Today we are going to take a look at how to get two achievements for the game Swarm (XBLA), made by Hothead Games. I am going to help you obtain the “Sacrificial Lambs” and “You Are On Fire” achievements. Here we go.

Achievement: Sacrificial Lambs

Description: Kill 50 Swarmites

Gamerscore Points Earned for unlocking:  5

This one is so easy to get it’s not even funny. In stage 1, as soon as the worm places all of your little swarmites onto the screen, move immediately to the left and fall off the cliff. This move will instantly kill all of them and there you go, five gamerscore points earned.

Achievement: You Are On Fire

Description: Light your mutliplier on fire

Gamerscore Points Earned for unlocking:  5

There a number of different ways someone could go about earning this achievement, but be sure to keep one thing in mind, your score multiplier must reach x15 in order for it to unlock. I ended up obtaining the points after playing the last section just before the end of level 3. You will see a large structure with explosives near it, hit them, and the explosion should destroy the entire thing, causing a number of different purple and large red orbs to come out. Collect as many of these as possible, then proceed to use your dash move (RT then LT) to destroy the rest of the blocks in the area. If you did all of this right, five more points should be added to your gamerscore.

Well I hope that I helped you earn some easy achievement points, and if there are any other one(s) that you are stuck with, let me know by leaving a comment below this post. Have fun everybody!

P.S.- Sorry about the images not relating to the achievements, I just couldn’t find any for them.
