Now that this week's Xbox One and Xbox 360 sales have both dropped, here are some of the quickest completions on offer, focusing on the games with the lowest ratios and completion estimates. It's worth noting that Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Burning Earth — famously one of the easiest completions ever — is also on sale on 360 for $4.99/£3.74, and looks to be the only quick completion on the 360 sale list aside from Things on Wheels. However, neither game is backwards compatible, so you'll still need an Xbox 360 console if you've yet to claim 1,000G from Avatar's paltry five achievements in a matter of seconds...
Quickest Xbox One completions from the latest sales
This week's easiest game looks to be Bullet Beat, rocking in with 12 achievements worth 1,000G, all of which should be able to be unlocked in under an hour. While there isn't a walkthrough for the game, several of the individual achievement solutions do offer video guides, but the gist is pretty simple: blast through all ten levels on Casual difficulty, pausing only to abuse the respawning enemies on Level 6 to get the two combo-related achievements. Bullet Beat is 20% off at $3.99/£3.35, with a pretty dismal community rating of 2.18/5.
Tcheco in the Castle of Lucio
Next up is oddball platformer Tcheco in the Castle of Lucio, which is currently half price ($2.49/£2.09) and is another game that can be drained of its 1,000G inside of an hour. A fair few of the 18 achievements are missable, and although we don't have a walkthrough on-site, BiLLzuMaNaTi was kind enough to leave a handy video guide on the game's forum, which should help you unlock the lot in a single playthrough. Which you'll need to do in order for this completion to be quick and (relatively) painless, since there's no level select option. With a middling community rating of 2.56/5, this probably won't be the worst game you play this year, either.
When a Monopoly game is the highest-rated release on any list, you kinda have to fear the worst for the quality of the rest of the games. Our completion estimate says it should take 1-2 hours to buy up all 15 achievements. To that end, you might want to check out the comprehensive achievement guide (in both text and video form) by Exalted Entity and Dead Warlord. Monopoly Plus is reduced to $4.49/£3.59 this week, with a somewhat generous community rating of 3.4/5.
