Sean Carey - May 9th 2020

Are you an Xbox Game Pass subscriber and looking to add to your Gamerscore total quickly? Our list of quick game completions from Xbox Game Pass can all be completed just a few short hours.

Xbox Game Pass is the gift that keeps on giving. It provides excellent value for subscribers, and games available in the service cover nearly every genre and niche, so you're bound to find something you'll enjoy. For achievement hunters, Xbox Game Pass is an even better deal considering there are so many fantastic games that can be completed with relative ease. To help you decide which to tackle first, we've pulled the quickest game completions listed in the service that can all be completed in a relatively short amount of time.

0-0.5 hours

Townscaper

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 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

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.

A Memoir Blue

A Memoir Blue is a relaxing point-and-click adventure game that has an equally relaxing achievement list. The "interactive poem" has 15 achievements that can all be unlocked in under two hours, though we do recommend clicking through and reading our A Memoir Blue walkthrough (written by DoomScott) as all but two of the game's achievements have been flagged as missable. Thankfully, if you do miss one, A Memoir Blue does have a chapter selected, so you can mop up any missing achievements after you've played through the game.

Deeeer Simulator: Your Average Everyday Deer Game

All you achievement hunters will surely be fawning over this one! Deeeer Simulator: Your Average Everyday Deer Game's 17 achievements can be unlocked in under two hours, perhaps quicker if you use a guide. The achievements don't ask too much from you, but their requirements can be a little vague. We recommend checking out some of the handy guides other TA members have written if you find yourself stuck on a particular achievement.

Telling Lies

I'm not telling lies when I say you can earn 1,000G in Telling Lies in under two hours. Visual novels tend to be pretty easy and quick completion, thanks to their simplicity, and Telling Lies is no different. Six out of the game's 15 achievements can be unlocked simply by playing through its story. The rest are secret achievements that have some pretty cryptic unlock descriptions, but thanks to the Telling Lies walkthrough (written by PangoBara) detailing exactly what you need to do to pop them, they're a breeze.

Gorogoa

Gorogoa is a pretty quick and easy completion, though you will need to use some guides to complete it in under the two-hour estimate we have on TA. The puzzle game has 11 achievements, with six of those unlocked just by playing through the story. The 'But Why?' and 'Dexterity' achievements are the two trickiest, with the former asking you to complete the game in under 30 minutes and the latter requiring you to beat it in under 500 moves. For help with these two and all of Gorogoa's achievements, you should definitely check out our Gorogoa walkthrough, which was written by TA user JohnnyInterfnk.

Rubber Bandits

First things first, to complete Rubber Bandits in under two hours, you're going to need multiple controllers or some online pals to boost this one with. If you don't have either of those, you'll still be able to unlock all 19 of the party game's achievements by playing with randoms online (it will take you longer than our completion estimate suggests, though!). To complete this one, make sure you follow Risimez's excellent Rubber Bandits walkthrough, which lays out exactly what you need to do to earn that 1,000 Gamerscore.

For those that don't have the extra controllers or anyone to boost this with, it will probably be worth creating (or joining if there's one available) a Rubber Bandits Gaming Session. Here you'll be able to work through the achievement list with other members from TA and get that completion!

Doom 64

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???.

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.

Donut County

The charming physics-based puzzler Donut County is an extremely straightforward completion that should take you between one and two hours to unlock all of its 20 achievements. Although the achievements are all easy to pop, you might need a helping hand here or there. For that, we recommend you check out our Donut County walkthrough, written by Fluke939, or some of the various individual achievement guides we have on TA. Not only is this an easy and quick completion, but it's also a fun one that you'll likely enjoy.

Gang Beasts

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.

2-3 hours

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


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. We don’t have a walkthrough for this on-rails shooter, but there are plenty of individual achievement guides with loads of great advice if you get stuck. 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, or not unlock at all.

Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion

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.

Space Warlord Organ Trading Simulator

You've got the stomach for more easy Gamerscore right? I can assure you; your eyes are not bigger than your belly, so pick up that Xbox controller and load up Space Warlord Organ Trading Simulator. While this management sim looks pretty complex, it's actually fairly simple, and so too is its achievement list. Nearly all of the game's achievements are cumulative, and to help you unlock these, we really recommend that you play the game with C64 Mat's excellent Space Warlord Organ Trading Simulator walkthrough. This comprehensive walkthrough details how to play the game and what you'll need to do to unlock each achievement.

Day of the Tentacle Remastered

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

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

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 collectable, 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.

Coffee Talk

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.

Race with Ryan

The bulk of Race with Ryan's 3-4 hour completion estimate is down to the 'Oh my darling...' achievement, which requires you to race for a total of three hours in any mode. The other 22 achievements the racing game has are all pretty straightforward, though you will need a second controller to unlock the 'I've got the power' split-screen achievement. If you need a guiding hand, TheOnlyMatto has an excellent Race with Ryan walkthrough that's filled with a bunch of tips and tricks to unlock each achievement.

PAW Patrol: Mighty Pups Save Adventure Bay

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 collectables 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

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 collectables, 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.

Genesis Noir

Genesis Noir's achievement list may look a little daunting, considering all of its achievements are marked 'Secret' with no descriptions of what to do. However, all achievements are progression-based bar two, which require you to unlock two different endings. You will unlock 13/14 achievements in a single playthrough, and the final one can be popped easily, thanks to Genesis Noir's scene select option. If you want to blast through this game with ease, we recommend playing through Genesis Noir with ThePurplePixie's well-received Genesis Noir walkthrough. Genesis Noir also now has a free title update that takes less than 30 minutes to complete and adds another 210 Gamerscore.

The Pedestrian

The Pedestrian is a fantastic puzzle platformer that has ten pretty pedestrian achievements. The list will take you around four hours to complete with all but one missable achievement coming from the game's main storyline. If you're looking to blitz through this one, be sure to check out some of the various video guides we have attached to each achievement.

3-5 hours

The Walking Dead: Michonne

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

Olija


While Olija does have a few achievements with higher TA ratios than other games on this list, it’s still an easy completion. Completion estimates suggest you can unlock all ten of the platformer’s achievements in under five hours, though we recommend playing through this one while following our excellent Olija walkthrough, written by PresidentScroob. The walkthrough has been written to get the achievements in the most efficient way possible, including two pesky missable achievements.

Firewatch

Next, we'll be taking a walk through the calm and serene wilderness of Firewatch. The first-person narrative adventure has just ten achievements, all with a chunky 100 Gamerscore each, that can be unlocked in under five hours. Half of them are unlocked by playing through the game's story, and the rest have miscellaneous requirements. For an easy way to unlock them all, follow hypobonix's Firewatch walkthrough, which is filled with handy tips and explains exactly what you need to do to grab that 1,000G.

6-8 hours

Road 96


Adventure game Road 96 is the next easy completion on our list. Estimates suggest it will take between six and eight hours to unlock all 12 of the game’s achievements, and while a fair few of these are unlocked by playing through the game’s story, there are a few missables you’ll need to keep an eye out for. We don’t have a walkthrough available for this one, but we do have a bunch of good achievement guides available, which we recommend diving into during your playthrough.

Kraken Academy!!

Don't be fooled by some of the relatively high-ratio achievements in Kraken Academy!! — it's actually a somewhat easy completion providing you follow a guide. All 48 Kraken Academy!! achievements can be unlocked in under eight hours. The game's list is made up of a variety of miscellaneous, story, cumulative, and missable achievements, and to pop them all, we really recommend checking out the Kraken Academy!! walkthrough, written by WeepingBomber. The collectables in this game are a bit of a nightmare if you miss one, so make sure you play while following the walkthrough for an easy 1,000G.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice


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 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.
