Easiest Xbox Achievement Lists from July 2018

By Mark Delaney, 4 months ago
July is traditionally a slow month for new releases, and though that's still generally true, the games that did come out this past month were very generous. Take a look at our biggest list of easy achievement games yet. As always, if we missed any, let us and other readers know and we'll get them added.

What the Box?

Price: $4.99
Completion Time: 2-3 Hours

What the Box?

What The Box? is the latest in a long line of hide-and-seek online multiplayer games. One team blends in with their environment while the other seeks them out, this time with box cutters. It makes me nostalgic, as that's precisely how I used to play hide-and-seek too.

The Journey Down: Chapter Three

Price: $19.99
Completion Time: 1 Hour or less

31/05/2018 - Carousel

If you didn't buy into the full trilogy as a package deal in June, July brought with it the finale to the adventure series. Like with its predecessors, you can get the full 1,000 gamerscore in under an hour. It's all a bit brief, but for what it's worth, players have been enjoying the series too.

Hotel Transylvania 3: Monsters Overboard

Price: $39.99
Completion Time: 6-8 Hours

Hotel Transylvania 3: Monsters Overboard

This is the first of two games from Outright Games on this list, and like the rest of their small but rapidly increasing body of publishing work, it's an adaptation of a kids property. We'll revisit this game on our next list, The Most Improbable Video Games Made in 2018.

Super Destronaut DX

Price: $4.99
Completion Time: Under 1 Hour

Super Destronaut DX

Remember InkSplosion? Consider this its spiritual successor from the same team. And the spirit to which we refer is that of cranking out easy gamerscore games to make easy money. My friend and colleague Kevin always says there's an obvious market for those willing to do this sort of thing, and our site numbers seem to back this up. Just ask the folks behind Energy Cycle.

The Spectrum Retreat

Price: $12.99
Completion Time: 5 Hours

Fans of first-person puzzlers have a new one to look out for, and this time there's a bit more story than usual to grapple with too. If you're into that sort of thing, you may want to read our review and see if it's worth booking a room at this creepy hotel.

Danger Zone 2

Price: $19.99
Completion Time: 5-6 Hours

Danger Zone 2

Do you still yearn for the days of Burnout's crash mode? Of course you do. We all do. Thankfully, there's Danger Zone and its new and improved sequel. The team at Three Fields busted down the doors of the first game's warehouse and put it into sunny simulated streets of screeching sports cars.

The Path of Motus

Price: $14.99
Completion Time: 1-2 Hours

The Path of Motus

One of the quickest games of the month, and of the year really, is this one. Motus will take you about as long as it does to watch a movie, with puzzle platforming gameplay that won't fry your brain. If I know this community, though, I bet you'll all still be waiting for a sale.

Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion

Price: $39.99
Completion Time: 10 Hours

Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion

The latest Adventure Time game just barely makes the cut as a quick and easy completion. In part, that's because even if we typically keep this list to games under 8 hours or so, this game is actually good, which is often not the case for stuff on these lists. It's an often too easy turn-based RPG, but as far as licensed games go, it's one of the better ones in a dying breed.

The Long Reach

Price: $14.99
Completion Time: 1-2 Hours

C & P Images

The Long Reach is a pretty dark game, thematically speaking, so it makes sense that it comes from a studio called Paint It Black Games. An adventure game with puzzle influences, think of it as if The Cave wasn't nearly so cozy and cute.

The Mooseman

Price: $6.99
Completion Time: 1-2 Hours

What is it about adventure games that makes their achievement lists so often very simple? The Mooseman is yet another such example. It's published by the same team that made Energy Cycle, so you know they're familiar with easy lists, even as this game, based on pagan mythology, is a bit different than what players may be used to.

Gene Rain

Price: $24.99
Completion Time: 3-4 Hours

Gene Rain

A lot of comments on these monthly stories say something like, "I'm not paying that for this game even if it is easy." My best guess is Gene Rain fits that mold. As one of the most expensive games on this list, it also has the unwelcome distinction of being the lowest rated game from the community. It's tallied just nine votes so far among its low player base, but it currently holds a .9 out of 5. Yikes.

Candle: The Power of the Flame

Price: $19.99
Completion Time: 4-8 hours

Candle: The Power of the Flame

Our community is a bit split on how long this game takes to finish off, with a few saying under five hours and a few saying as many as 10 hours. Whichever is correct, it still fits in this article. It's also a pretty fun game according to our review, which is sometimes hard to come by on these lists.

Download from Microsoft Store

Remothered: Tormented Fathers

Price: $29.99
Completion Time: 3-5 Hours

Remothered: Tormented Fathers

Remothered is a horror game in the vein of Clock Tower and that alone is surely enough to get players to buy into it, especially among horror fans who always seem starved for games in their favorite genre — I speak from experience here. It's als a pretty easy list with lots of story achievements and a few that are missable but not hard should you know where to look. Just remember to unlock that 1,000 gamerscore with the lights off and headphones on.

We'll be back on the first of every month with our easy achievement list roundups. See you on September 1st!
