achievements not recognized

i never much looked into game centre./achievements till this week when i added some people and started comparing
then i noticed there were games i had done things but didnt get the required achievement
for example
Mini Motor HD- im 65% through career, i just got last night the "max out" all the upgrades achievement but i dont have the first one which is "come first in any race"
whats up with that? ive come first in every race so far
is that because ive played offline when i won my first race so therefore it never recognizes any win?
there were quite a few games i had like that too. i do play offline when in the car picking the kids up/dropping off ( my partner goes in, i stay in the car with the ipad lol it works well for the both of us)
i assumed when you next played online, it would automatically add points/achievements
disappointing if it doesnt
any ideas/tips? or am i going to have to uninstall/reinstall and start over on all games that have done this????? noooooooooooooooooooooooooo

That's happened to me in several games, but I doesn't really bother me that much. As long as I know I was good enough to earn an achievement, idgaf.

I kind of (really) want to know as well (I posted a thread earlier this week), because Super Hexagon appears to track progress through Game Center, and when the game stopped updating to Game Center, it stopped saving my high scores--AND my unlocked levels. After that point, I uninstalled and reinstalled it--removing Game Center data in the process--but Game Center didn't even do that right, and kept a copy of my Super Hexagon progress saved anyway. Ever since, the game has frozen on startup every time (not crashed, but frozen). Game Center has literally made this game unplayable. >:/

Any fixes for THAT?
