I just saw that one of the acheivments in Geometry Wars
is 'Pacifism'.

...Stay alive for 1 min without shooting.

I went into this thinking about how SLLOOWWW the beginning of the game is...

Well, it took me about 30 minutes and Many, Many Many game 'restarts' to
achieve this.

I'm almost thinking this acheivement is a matter of luck than skill.

Who else has pulled this achievment off?

me and a buddy used a 60 second timer so i knew exactly how cloase i was to the 60 second mark, that way if i only had one second left i could make that last second gamble, took us about 10-15 minutes

2nd or third try, once you play for awhile you get really good at dodging

once you get good at the game it becomes much easier, Definitely use a timer like hamwbone suggested. I tried a few times and failed, then I came back to it later with a buddy and a timer and it took me about 10-15 minutes to get.

Now that I'm better I'll often just start my game by doing the pacifism achievement laugh.gif

I can't recall having a problem getting it. I think I got it on the first or second try. It's easy. It'd be a challenge if you had to survive for a minute after breaking the 500k mark. wink.gif

I felt the same way. 250,000 was my tops, all of the sudden one day I hit 471,000.

After a few more days of getting up in the 300,000 range... I found myself
With around 700,000.... And if you can get a rythm going and not die, the points start adding
up quickly.

I made it to somewhere over 1.1 Mil... but now I make stupid mistakes just around that time.

I suppose that is just the next rung in the ladder.

I'm guessing you get to a point where it doesn't get harder and you can rely more on a pattern?
I haven't reached that point yet, but when I do... look out!

Took me first try. You kidding now you think thats hard. How about survive to 1 mil... I mean i made it over 1 mil plenty of times.. But i couldnt even survive to 500,000... Once i made it to 450,000 without dieing but died suddenly becuase they spawned right ontop of me. I was so pissed... Well i just got this game a few weeks ago and i trying to beat kameo right now so. I prob can finish it someday though... But jezz survive to 1mil... I dont know how you get x10 points. That seems pretty darn hard. And x9 bombs that seems kinda hard also... becuase i always use my bomb when trying to get to 1mil and etc.. Well maybe if i get enough multiplyers... 1 mil is pretty easy later i get it usally everytime i play, survive now i seriously think thats impossible XD and x9 bombs...

..yeah, its funny how I can break 1Mil, but not be able to dodge things for 60 seconds w/out shooting.
I think my strategy (when using my guns) is just to 'pave the road'. (as they say in the movie ID4)
Without that, my dodging skills wouldn't last me too long.

I played my first game in a while a couple of nights ago.

Broke 2 mil on my first life.

Ended up with 2.3 million.

Talk about embarrassing. . . sad.gif

took me two tries (got it on my 2nd). driving skills are very important to doing well in the game. shooting can only get you so far and so can bombs. There are times when you gotta have that extra agility that enemies don't have so yoou can escape and this achievement will help you with it. also you don't need a timer, imo. there is a chime that plays (as it does when you receive any achievement) and you can easily shoot off any enemies around you at 1 minute in. if you can't then just bomb and forget about it. or who cares, you got the achievement, die and start another game.
