Although many people loathe this game because of its repetitive gameplay and sub par graphics, it definitely deserves its spot on the Quick 1000s. Even avid gamers will have little difficulty getting all of this game's simple achievements.
Welcome to Eragon. This game has a total of 37 achievements and requires two playthroughs to get 1000 . Of the achievements 36 are unlocked simply by playing through the story and 1 is gained by collecting the secret egg in each level. The reason that two playthroughs is required is the achievements for difficulty are not stackable. This means beating a level on hard mode will not unlock the achievement for beating the same level on normal mode.
As you play through the game make sure that you are following the secret egg location guide found HERE. I also suggest using a walkthrough to help you if you're lost or need more help finding an egg. I found this walkthrough to be very helpful. For your first playthrough a level beat it on normal difficulty and collect the egg. Note that the egg will not count unless you finish the level after collecting it and you only need to collect the egg once even though the game will let you grab it over and over on subsequent plays through the level. After you beat the level and collect the egg on normal mode, immediately replay the level on hard mode. This will make it much easier to beat the level since it will be fresh in your mind and you'll know exactly what to expect.
Overall this game is very simple, but sometimes you can get overwhelmed if you don't know what your doing. The best tip I can give when fighting a large group of enemies is to use your magic arrows to knock some enemies down. While they're close and on the ground press the button to stab them and instantly kill them. Now, while your magic is recharging, simply use the leaping slam. To do this jump in the air with and then press while airborne. This move will prevent you from taking damage for the most part. Then just repeat this process once you magic bar is blue again.
And there you have it. If at this point you are missing achievements simply replay the desired level on the necessary difficulty.
