0-0.5 hours

Townscaper

Townscaper Achievements

Townscaper is one of your first stops if you're an Xbox Game Pass subscriber that's on the hunt for some easy Gamerscore. The sandbox game's ten achievements are all pretty easy to unlock and have simple requirements, though you may need one of our guides to help with Propelled, Who goes there?, and Architect. It should take you around 30 minutes to unlock them all and bag yourself a cool 1,000 Gamerscore.

0.5-1 hour

My Friend Peppa Pig

My Friend Peppa Pig Achievements

My Friend Peppa Pig is an extremely easy completion, providing you can put up with Peppa's unskippable dialogue and cutting voice. This adventure game has 11 achievements that will take you about 45 minutes to unlock. We recommend using some of the guides found here for the most optimal path through the game; otherwise, you could get lost speaking nonsense to Madame Gazelle or Grandpa Pig (yes, I've played this game). The things we do for easy Gamerscore...

1-2 hours

Venba

Venba Achievements

If you're after a relaxed and cozy cooking experience that will reward you with an easy 1,000 Gamerscore for playing, the puzzle game Venba has got you covered. Unlocking all 15 of Venba's achievements will take you around an hour. Thankfully, the game does have a chapter select, so if you do happen to miss one achievement on your playthrough, you can easily go back and grab it. To make the completion even easier, you can play along by following our Venba walkthrough written by Cosm1c Joker.

Doom 64

DOOM 64 ~ HeroArt

Next up, we're jumping into Doom 64. The game has ten achievements worth 1,000 Gamerscore, and thanks to Doom 64's password screen, all of its achievements can be unlocked in less than two hours by following our Doom 64 walkthrough. The walkthrough, written by PangoBara, includes what passwords you need to use to warp through levels and what you need to do to unlock missable achievements such as Persistence is the Key and RVNH3CT1CD3M0???.

Maquette

Maquette Xbox game pass

All 22 achievements in Annapurna Interactive's mind-bending puzzle game Maquette can be unlocked in under two hours if you're willing to forgo the overall puzzle experience and follow a guide. The achievement list is mostly straightforward, but it's the speed-run achievements that will cause a problem for some — this is where you will most likely need a guide if you don't want to memorize each step for every puzzle. Thankfully, we have plenty of individual achievement guides on TA for these achievements should you need them.

Hello Neighbor 2

Hello Neighbor 2 Achievements

Unlike Hello Neighbor, the sequel Hello Neighbor 2 can be completed in just a couple of hours using a guide. Previously, you could unlock all of the game's 14 achievements in about 20 minutes, thanks to various glitches which have since been patched out. Luckily for you, Hello Neighbor 2 is still a quick completion if you follow our Hello Neighbor walkthrough, written by ArthurSponer.

Escape Academy

Escape Academy

To complete Escape Academy in under two hours, you're going to need to follow our Escape Academy walkthrough (written by ManicMetalhead) and have either a pal so you can play the game in co-op or own a second controller. Our walkthrough gives you solutions for each puzzle and details how to unlock all 27 of Escape Academy's achievements, so if you do decide to play Escape Academy using it, just be aware that all the solutions and fun stuff will be spoiled.

Gang Beasts

Screenshot

According to estimates here on TA, Gang Beasts will take you between one and two hours to unlock all 19 of its achievements, and while it is possible to complete the game in or around that time frame, it will be much easier and quicker if you have a second controller or a co-op buddy. Both the controls and the achievements are a little janky in Gang Beasts, so you might find yourself repeating a few of the achievement requirements over and over again until they pop — perseverance is key! We recommend checking out TheOnlyMatto's superb Gang Beasts walkthrough, which has solutions for each achievement and a bunch of other tips and tricks to help you get the 1,000G.

Unpacking

Unpacking

Unpacking, the game where you simply unpack things, was always going to have an easy achievement list. However, an accessibility option that allows you to place items anywhere you want in a room makes the game's 25 achievements even easier to unlock. For more on how to complete Unpacking in under two hours, check out our Unpacking walkthrough (written by Rossco7530). Just bear in mind that if you do use the accessibility option, you might not unpack the rather sweet and charming narrative that slowly unfolds as you play.

2-3 hours

DC League of Super-Pets: The Adventures of Krypto and Ace

DC League of Super Pets: The Adventures of Krypto and Ace Achievements

A game designed for children is our next stop on the quest for easy Gamerscore. DC League of Super-Pets: The Adventures of Krypto and Ace has 15 straightforward achievements that can be unlocked in under three hours. If you need some extra guidance, give our excellent DC League of Super-Pets: The Adventures of Krypto and Ace walkthrough (written by PresidentScroob) a read. It should also be noted that The Adventures of Krypto and Ace achievements can be a little buggy and might take some time before they unlock.

Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion

Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion achievements fixed

Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion is not just a quick completion, it's also a pretty fun and humorous action-adventure game. Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion has 37 achievements that can all be unlocked easily thanks to a couple of accessibility options that suck the difficulty out of the game. With these options turned on, you can blast through the game, popping all of its achievements in under three hours. For more, give PangoBara's well-received Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion walkthrough a look over.

Day of the Tentacle Remastered

Day of the Tentacle Remastered Achievements

Day of the Tentacle Remastered is one of Double Fine's greatest titles. The simple point-and-click adventure game has 58 achievements worth a total of 1,000 Gamerscore and takes between two and three hours to complete. The achievement list is made up of achievements that can be unlocked by playing through the game's story and a good number of missable-flagged achievements. To get the full 1,000G, we recommended following Chad and Jessie's superb Day of the Tentacle walkthrough that details exactly what you need to do to pop those achievements.

Full Throttle Remastered

Full Throttle Remastered Achievements

Sticking with Double Fine, we have Full Throttle Remastered — another easy completion that should take between two and three hours to unlock all 40 of the game's achievements. Full Throttle Remastered is similar to Day of the Tentacle Remastered, in which most of the achievements are story related or missable. For a helping hand with those, make sure you play along with our Full Throttle Remastered walkthrough (written by DarkR Phantom).

3-4 hours

Dordogne

DORDOGNE Xbox Game Pass

Dordogne was originally somewhat tricky to 100%, but its developers recently added a chapter select, making the narrative-driven adventure game much easier to complete. Estimates suggest that unlocking all 31 achievements will take between three and four hours, and while the majority of Dordogne's list is pretty simple, there are a bunch of collectibles you'll need to be on the lookout for while you're playing. Thankfully, the TA community has provided several guides to help find these collectibles.

Besiege

Besiege Game Pass may 2023

Despite a relatively high TA ratio compared to the other games on this list, Besiege is a very simple completion if you're willing to follow our Besiege walkthrough (thanks, SprinkyDink). Besiege features an in-game workshop where you can download vehicles built by other players, and the walkthrough simply lists which vehicles you'll need to download to complete each level. Estimates suggest that you should unlock all 29 Besiege achievements in around four hours using this method.

Genesis Noir

Genesis Noir Demo ~ TitledHeroArt

Genesis Noir , once upon a time, could be completed in about ten minutes, thanks to liberal use of a debug menu. That method has now been patched, but luckily for you, the point-and-click adventure game is still a quick completion, taking around four hours in total to complete. All of its achievements are earned by simply playing through the story, but if you'd like a few pointers, check out the Genesis Noir walkthrough written by ThePurplePixie.

Coffee Talk

Coffee Talk Achievements

Coffee Talk is a wonderful and relaxing visual novel that also happens to be a quick and easy completion. To unlock all 24 of Coffee Talk's achievements in under four hours, you'll need to follow TassieTigerDave's excellent Coffee Talk walkthrough, which details how to mix the correct drinks and when.

Inside

INSIDE

Inside is a game you definitely don't want to miss. It's a fantastic and atmospheric puzzle platformer that also has an easy achievement list. Every achievement is flagged as a collectible, so while you play, you’re going to need to keep your eyes peeled for certain things. Failing that, you could just use our superb Inside walkthrough (written by Unrehearsed), which tells you exactly how to pop each achievement.

Paw Patrol: Mighty Pups Save Adventure Bay

PAW Patrol: Mighty Pups Save Adventure Bay easy achievements gamerscore

Sticking with games that are designed for children, next up is PAW Patrol: Mighty Pups Save Adventure Bay, which has 30 achievements that can be unlocked in under four hours. Most of the achievements don't require a lot in the way of effort, though there are numerous collectibles you will need to find for the full 1,000G. The Pup Treat Master achievement asks you to collect all the Pup Treats scattered throughout the game, of which there are a whopping 7,250.

Contrast

Contrast Screen 1

According to estimates, it'll take you under four hours to complete the Contrast achievement list. The platformer has 22 achievements, nine of which are unlocked by playing through the game's compelling story. The bulk of the remaining achievements are for finding collectibles, which are considerably easier to find if you follow our Contrast walkthrough. The walkthrough also suggests you can complete this in under two hours, so you might be able to speed through Contrast if you're not too fussed about taking in much of what the game has to offer.

3-5 hours

The Walking Dead: Michonne

TWD: Michonne Ep. 2 Screens 3

All Telltale games are notoriously easy completions, but most take upwards of eight hours to complete. The Walking Dead: Michonne is an exception to that rule, thanks to the game having just three episodes. In total, it will take you about five hours to unlock all of the achievements from each episode, providing you're not interested in exploring what the game has to offer fully. All achievements are popped by playing through the story, so you can't really go wrong with this one for an easy 1,000G. If you need it, we have a The Walking Dead: Michonne walkthrough, written by GoW Butters, that details the quickest way to blitz through the game's achievements.

4-5 hours

Ravenlok

Ravenlok quick completion easy xbox achievements

If you've got around five hours to spare and you're after some easy Gamerscore, you'll want to check out Ravenlok. The dark fantasy action-adventure game from developer Cococucumber has 50 achievements that shouldn't take you much longer than four hours to unlock. Both the game and its achievement list are pretty simple to complete, and while there is a missable achievement, it's right at the beginning of the game, so if you do miss it, you can grab it easily.

Somerville

somerville game pass release date

Next up on our round tour of quick and easy Game Pass completions is narrative adventure game Somerville, which has 11 achievements that can be unlocked in under five hours. All of the achievements are very simple, if not a little cryptic. We recommended checking out some of the individual guides for each achievement on TA, especially guides for the various ending achievements marked as secret.

5-6 hours

Scorn

Scorn

The atmospheric and obtuse first-person puzzle game Scorn is next up on our list. Scorn has 12 achievements that estimates suggest will take between five and six hours to unlock, and while its achievement list may be cryptic, overall, they’re pretty easy to unlock. The game has absolutely no signposting, so you might find yourself at a loss at times, but if you use a walkthrough or one of the many individual achievement guides we have here on TA, you’ll speed through the game in no time at all.

Beacon Pines

beacon pines xbox game pass interview

Cute and creepy adventure title Beacon Pines is worth playing for both the easy Gamerscore and the suspenseful storyline. It features ten achievements that can be unlocked in under six hours, with just under half of those coming from the game’s story. The rest of the list is pretty simple, though you may need to follow our excellent Beacon Pines walkthrough (shout-out goes to ExP TAT for that one) for some of the other achievements.

6-8 hours

Toem

toem xbox achievements

The charming adventure photography game Toem is next up on our tour of quick and easy Xbox Game Pass completions. According to estimates, unlocking all 48 achievements in Toem will take you around six to eight hours, though you will probably be able to get them all unlocked in around five hours if you're speedy. There are no challenging achievements here, but make sure you have a good look at the list and some of the individual achievement guides available so you can unlock each achievement before moving on to a new area, as this will save you some minor backtracking.

Soma

SOMA

Frictional Games' Soma is an excellent game and a quick completion. According to estimates, you should be able to complete this one in under eight hours, but if you're following our Soma walkthrough (thanks, Wyyvern), you can expect to blitz through the first-person sci-fi horror game in about half that time. Soma has a Safe mode, which means the monsters in the game will not chase you, making the completion a breeze.

Costume Quest

Costume Quest

Compared to other games on this list, Costume Quest isn’t worth as much in terms of raw Gamerscore, but it does come highly recommended, thanks to a 4.1/5 TA community rating. Double Fine’s turn-based RPG has 15 achievements on its base list worth just 200G, which will take you between six and eight hours to complete. However, if you use our Costume Quest walkthrough (written by drabik), you might be able to get this one crossed off your list in a shorter amount of time. Costume Quest also has a free DLC available, Gubbins on Ice, which is not only short, but it adds another five achievements worth a total of 50 Gamerscore.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice

Hellblade

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is not only a fantastic game; it's also a pretty easy completion. All but one of Hellblade's 14 achievements are unlocked by completing the story, but thanks to a recent update that added a new chapter select feature, the Stories of the North achievement is a breeze. If you need it, we have an excellent Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice walkthrough, written by TA user KylKo.

The Gunk

the gunk gameplay

The Gunk is a satisfying little action-adventure game that will take about six hours to unlock all 17 of its achievements. The list is pretty easy, but there are a couple of missable achievements that you'll need to be aware of. These two are a bit of a pain and require you to scan a lot of items and gather a lot of resources. Thankfully, there are some decent guides available for both of these achievements that should help.
