I needed around 50 tries to get this achievement. Stay calm and try to find a good path. Slow down the missile, stay in the middle and don't make stupid mistakes like "chasing" a hole that moves away from you. Don't be afraid to speed the missile up at the faster rings - but don't get greedy. If you rush through it, you'll end up losing.
It really is about staying calm and not getting mad. I used swipe because I felt most comfortable with that control method.

I found the best way was to go full throttle through the middle intill it gets a little too fast then slow right down.

Stay in the middle. I tried around 20 times then got pissed off. came back to it and did it first go. like the above said just speed it down the middle. It will come sooner then later. i think i spent more time on this then the other 9.
Waste of time game.

I went full speed, through the middle (moving slightly only when there's no middle hole), until about the 10th (which is a yellow) barrier. Then I slowed down all the way, and it went into a freefall... I didn't control it much as it went through the next 10 rings for it to pop. I think it was my 10th+ attempt.

Tried about 50 times. Still haven't gotten it. Taking a break and then trying out what you all suggest to do.
The key to it is to slow right down using the slider on the left.
Then just keep to the centre as much as possible to take advantage of those rings with a center hole.

by far the hardest achievment in the game, and the only that requires any skill/concentration whatsoever.
Like others said I stuck to the middle near the top and went fast at the beginning, then slower towards the end. The 20th ring comes faster than I expected. You really blow through them quick!

It was the last achievement I needed and I had trouble with it for awhile but.. it just takes practice.. I probably did it 30-50 times.
Then I randomly came back the next day and got it on my first try. I mostly stayed in the center (when there were openings in the center), then I'd go up a little bit to the left or so to get through the rings that didn't have center openings.. I also kept my speed at the slowest possible the whole time. So I dunno, maybe that will help other people.. haha.

I just went the slowest it went straight down the middle and luckily this worked after about 20 tries lol

This was definitely a frustratingly annoying achievement because of the controls of the game (in my opinion), but nevertheless an easily obtainable 200G.
