Achievement Guide & Roadmap

Overview:
-Estimated achievement difficulty: 1/10
-Offline: 7 (100)
-Online: 0 (0)
-Approximate amount of time to 100: 45 minutes
Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1 playthrough
-Number of missable achievements: Pulse Perfection, Alderan Intuition
-Do cheat codes disable achievements? No cheats
-Does difficulty affect achievements? No
-Glitchy achievements: None
-Unobtainable achievements: None
-Extra equipment needed? Windows 8


Adera is a 3D point-and-click puzzle adventure game that follows Jane Sinclaire as she journeys to the mysterious city of Adera in search of her missing grandfather. This third episode is much shorter than the previous two, and you should have no problem in getting this one done in less than an hour. I used the hint button a couple of times and still came in under the 60 minute mark.

Step 1 - Playthrough

Just start playing through, being careful to avoid hitting the hint button. You do not need to worry about the collectables in the episode as they are not required for any achievements. Use the prompts at the bottom of the screen to guide you to where you need to be looking for your next item.
You can skip through all of the minigames apart from the one where you have to clear the boulders from the water cave. Completing this puzzle with less than three mistakes will unlock Pulse Perfection.
Your playthrough should take no longer than around 45 minutes, and you will have at least five of the seven achievements out of the way.

Step 2 - Mop Up

It is very likely that you have got all the achievements on your first playthrough. If like me you failed the boulder puzzle achievement or used a hint button, a speed playthrough can be done in about 15 minutes now you know where everything is.

Conclusion

Again this is much shorter than the other two episodes released so far, and shouldn't give anybody any problems. Apparently the next few episodes will be similar length, which will annoy some people, but doesn't make it any less enjoyable than the rest of this series.

Escape Artist 15
Fashioned a crude rope and escaped through a crack in the floor.


Story related, can't be missed. You will find two ropes directly in front of you, one at the back with the stepladder, two up on the shelf (use the stepladder to get these). Use these ropes on the whole in the floor for this one

Snake Charmer 10
Chased snakes away from the clogged water channel.

Story related, can't be missed. Use the matches on the unlit torches in the unlit room. One of them will fall down. Pick this up and use it on the snakes at the top of the viaduct for this one.

Surface Dweller 15
Escaped the Aderan underground and made it back to the surface.

Story related, can't be missed. This will unlock just after half way through as soon as you get outside.

Pulse Perfection 10
Missed no more than three taps while shifting the boulder in the cave pool.

Missable. You will have a minigame to play when you have collected everything from the pool area. This minigame involves you clicking on circles when they are fully focused. You can miss three, and they are quite easy to do, but start speeding up towards the end. If you miss this it is quite near the beginning so won't take you long to go back and try again.

Steam Punk 15
Obscured the stone mask's vision in the bath house.


Story related, can't be missed. You need to find the curved pipe to obscure the stone masks view. First you will need to get the waterfall working. You will need to find three turtles for this. One is by the waterfall, behind you when you enter the scene. Throw the rubber ball you have through the hoop by the episode exit for a second, and the third is in the netting in the roof of the room with the mask in. Use the spear to knock this down. Once you have these, you will start the waterfall and have access to the glyph. There is a key with the glyph which opens a door in the mask room. This is an item finding game, and you will get the curved pipe as a prize when you complete. Place the curved pipe on the steam vent for this one.

Glyph Master 25
Used the key glyphs to open the door to Amaro's Tower.

Story related, can't be missed. This will unlock right at the end when you place all four glyphs you have collected in the puzzle door. You will only have four, but Billy will give you the fifth at the end.


Aderan Intuition 10
Completed Episode 3: Escape Into Light without using a single hint.


Missable. Complete the episode without using the hint button. If you get so stuck you need to use it, don't worry as you can race through the game in under 15 minutes once you know where everything is.

"-Does difficulty affect achievements? No difficulty setting"
There comes a difficulty setting with Episode 3. It makes the game easier and doesn't affect achievements.

The difficulty setting that was added also applied to the other episodes, so perhaps the episode 1/2 roadmaps should also be changed accordingly.
