Achievement Guide and Roadmap

Roadmap

Overview
-Estimated achievement difficulty: 3/10
-Offline: 35/35 (1000)
-Online: 0
-Approximate amount of time to 200: 6-8 Hours
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1 complete playthrough and replays of each level to finish off the collectibles and to gain more coins.
-Number of missable achievements: None
-Do cheat codes disable achievements? No Cheats
-Does difficulty affect achievements? No
-Glitchy achievements: None
-Unobtainable achievements: None
-Extra equipment needed? A second controller for cooperative based achievements.

Introduction
This Shrek game is a bit different than other ones you may have played. It focuses on being able to change characters whenever you want, and certain things require you to have two characters being controlled at once (local cooperative). This game has no difficulty settings to deal with. When the achievements talk about primary only, it means only the main profile will be able to gain achievements.

Step 1: Complete the campaign
Focus on running through the campaign gaining the story related achievements, and early on putting in a 2nd controller to knock out the very easy cooperative based achievements as well as using each characters abilities. You do have the option of actually plaything the game with someone else on the same Xbox if you want. You can gain a decent amount of collectibles on this run, but don't be shocked when you can't get certain things because you lack that specific ability. I suggest going to the store in the Ogre Camp and buying the Money Up upgrades to help out.

Step 2: Complete levels at 100% and buy all abilities and upgrades
Now you should have a good idea of how to complete the levels and should remember some chests/secrets you could not get to. Now that you have abilities you didn't have, you may get them. Look everywhere in the level, or in the forums if you're having a hard time with a couple of them. You should also grab any cooperative puzzles you haven't completed (there are only a few and listed in the guide).

Step 3: Mop Up
If you have any last upgrades you haven't boughten, or anything else you forgot to do, go ahead and do it. This includes any character based or cooperative based achievements that may have slipped your mind.

Conclusion
This game is very easy and you should have no trouble gaining all achievements. The only annoying thing you may encounter is completing certain levels at 100%. Just keep looking and eventually you should find the last item/s, or of course check the forum as most of the hard ones are covered when someone has a question on where one is.

Docks Complete 50
Complete 100% of the Docks (primary profile)

See "Ogre Camp Complete".


Rumpel's Palace Complete 50
Complete 100% of Rumpelstiltskin's Palace (primary profile)

See "Ogre Camp Complete".


Ogre Camp Complete 50
Complete 100% of the Ogre Camp (primary profile)

For a level to be considered "complete", you must collect all big chests, little chests, and secret items (in the form of pink bows, wanted posters, plate of waffles, etc). The Ogre Camp's secret items are obtained through the act of bartering and not by finding them. So to complete that specific level, you must buy all upgrades from the store. Most of them are obvious and out in the open, thus creating a complete collectible walkthrough would be mostly pointless and cause people to take longer reading it than needed. If you're really struggling, feel free to check around the forums found HERE.

You should only worry about getting the 100% on each level after you have completed the game so that you have obtained all special abilities for every character.


Big Treasure 20
Open a big treasure chest (primary profile)

This will come early on in the game when you find one. You will have to be opening all of these anyways and can find them on every level. These can only be opened once you have obtained Shrek's special ability to open them.

Shopping Spree 50
Purchase all store items (primary profile)

You will need to buy every item in the store at the Ogre Camp. To get everything available to purchase there, you must complete the campaign. To have enough coins to purchase them all, you should have done almost all 100%s on every level. There are a total of 11 different categories to buy from, most having three different upgrades. If you want to speed this up, purchase the "Money Up" upgrades first. You will need roughly 15,000 coins to be able to purchase everything (give or take).





Let's Start a Sing-a-Long! 10
Use Donkey Radio on an enemy (primary profile)

As Donkey (the donkey animal), hit facing an enemy. You can switch to this character by pressing .


Green And Mean 10
Scare an enemy as Shrek (primary profile)

As Shrek (the male ogre), hit facing an enemy. You can switch to this character by pressing .

Ogre Horn 10
Sound-shock an enemy with Fiona (primary profile)

As Fiona (the female ogre), hit facing an enemy. You can switch to this character by pressing .


Too Cute 10
Use Puss In Boots' "big eyes" to charm an enemy (primary profile)

As Puss In Boots (the cat with the sword), hit facing an enemy. You can switch to this character by pressing .


Just Getting Started 10
Get your first health upgrade (primary profile)

You should find your first health upgrade in the swamp. You will see the ginger bread man standing near boxes which you can move out of the way, in order to obtain the upgrade.

Team Shrek 30
Defeat an enemy with each of the four characters in 1 battle (primary profile)

The battles are pretty obvious, as it's usually presented with some sort of scene followed by enemies. Switch to each of the 4 characters using the D-Pad and kill at leats one enemy before switching to the next. If a second controller is being used, you can still gain this achievement if 1 controller gets kills and the other gets kills as well, with any mix of characters as long as all are used.


Fear My Roar 20
As Shrek, scare five enemies at once (primary profile)

See "Where's The Party" achievement description.


Queen of the Swamp 20
As Fiona, sound-blast five enemies at once (primary profile)

See "Where's The Party" achievement description.


Prrrr... 20
As Puss, enchant five enemies at once (primary profile)

See "Where's The Party" achievement description.


Where's the Party? 30
Use Donkey Radio on five enemies at once (primary profile)

You must use your special power near 5 or more enemies. You can gain these early on, or get them in many situations the game throws at you. See the video below for an example on pumpkin enemies. After you get one character's done, you may change to another and use their power on the same enemies since it won't actually kill the enemies.



Ogre Outpost 30
Complete the Co-Op puzzle in the Swamp (primary profile)

You will find 2 platforms that are hooked up by rope. You must use the cat to climb on the side of the left while you have Shrek on the right platform. Now just get on the left with the cat to lift Shrek up. You must have a second controller to do this.



Ogre Outlaws 30
Complete the Co-Op puzzle in the Docks (primary profile)

On the Docks level, you'll eventually come to an area with a see-saw like bridge. There is a chest on the right side on a cliff area. Have the cooperative partner standing on the left side, and have Shrek run up it using it as a ramp to get to the chest. You must have a second controller to do this.



Ogre Mayhem 30
Complete the Co-Op puzzle in the Peasant Village (primary profile)

You will have to have both characters on the right side of the see-saw type bridge. Once the left side is up, run a character up the now created ramp to get to the chest. You must have a second controller to do this.



Let's Have Some Fun 10
Defeat an enemy in the Co-Op mode (primary profile)

You must have more than one controller connected to your Xbox 360. Press :startbut: on any other controller to enter the game. Defeat an enemy while this mode is active and you'll get the achievement. You can drop the extra controller out of the game at any time.


The Party's Here 20
Complete a battle while in the Co-Op mode (primary profile)

You must have more than one controller connected to your Xbox. Press :startbut: on any other controller to enter the game. After a few tutorials in the first level, you'll get this when you fight multiple groups of enemies. It is easy to play with one controller to do this. You can drop the other controller out at any time.

Good guide! Only thing I can suggest is adding the collectible guide from the forum to this guide. Very detailed and I just followed it step by step after completing the campaign. Annoying as I missed about 1/3 of the stuff on my first playthrough. Basiocally had to play the whole game twice.

Also, I think just by getting everything 100% you get enough money to do all the upgrades, without even worrying about money ups.

Enjoyed the game a bunch, but the collectible grind at the end was an unnecessary pain in the ass.
