Guide covering miscellaneous achievements unrelated to room challenges.
Most of this game’s 300 achievements are for awarded solving challenge scrolls in specific rooms. If you need help solving those challenges, refer to this guide on how to use the offical forums to find a room’s solution. Most of the solutions will also have help on how to solve challenges.
This guide covers the more ambigious achievements that may be missed completely if you know what to do beforehand.
If you don’t know where to start, I recommend playing in this order:
- Gunthro And The Epic Blunder — It’s the first you buy on Steam and covers most the basic mechanics in games below.
- King Dugan’s Dungeon — The first game but a DLC on Steam. Simplest mechanics-wise, but puzzles become harder.
- Journey To Rooted Hold — The second game but a DLC on Steam. No reason to play this before any of the above.
- The City Beneath — The third game but a DLC on Steam. Hardest of these four, play this one last.
