Ghostscape is a point-and-click adventure game based around exploring a haunted mansion and collecting evidence of paranormal activity. The game can be glitchy, but if you know what to avoid, you should have no trouble getting all 200 gamerscore in 2 hours or less. For a more in-depth review of the game from WPCentral, click HERE. The game is currently listed at $2.99 in the Marketplace.

Step 1: Complete the game following walkthrough (15 achievements for 190 )
Play through the game following the walkthrough. Make sure to read the achievement descriptions below to look out for potential glitches. The walkthrough painstakingly created by Loopstahblue can be found HERE.

Step 2: Complete the game in under 20 minutes (1 achievement for 10 )
Use the speed run walkthrough to get the last achievement.

Step 3: Mop-Up
If needed, play the game again, focusing on any achievements you may have missed.

All in all, Ghostscape is an easy 200 gamerscore if you follow the walkthrough guide.

*GLITCH WARNING* After completing a playthrough and starting a new one, the game does not seem to give you a fresh start. Some of the aspects of your previous playthrough may carry over to subsequent playthroughs (i.e. puzzles solved, cases opened, doors unlocked, paranormal activities photographed, etc.). This can make some achievements and even completing the game in some cases impossible on follow-up playthroughs. It is strongly recommended that you uninstall and reinstall the game between playthroughs to prevent these types of glitches from occurring. NOTE: After each playthrough, before uninstalling, leave a few minutes for the game to sync. Be sure to check from either or an Xbox 360 console that all the achievements you earned in Ghostscape are showing up as unlocked. Only at this point is it safe to uninstall the game. I made the mistake of uninstalling too fast before some of the achievements I earned synced and I had to redo them (this is the reason why I had to do three playthroughs!). If you think this is unnecessary, don't do it, but YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

[x360a would like to thank Arsenic 17 for this Roadmap]

First Contact5
This achievement is awarded the first time you take a photograph of any paranormal activity.    

Will be your first achievement most likely. Just use your camera to take a photo of anything paranormal (i.e. ghost, orb, moving chair, moving cup).

This achievement is awarded when ALL the paranormal activity in the house have been photographed.    

This is the most exhaustive "collectible" achievement in the game. It requires you to photograph 9 orbs, 6 ghosts, 5 moving chairs, and 5 moving cups.

*GLITCH* You need to be careful that you do not ever obtain any more of each individual paranormal activity than I have specified. If so, the achievement will not unlock, and you will have to do another playthrough. Specifically, there are more than 9 orbs to photograph. If you photograph a 10th orb before netting this achievement, it will NOT unlock. Also, there are more than 6 ghosts to photograph. Be careful not to photograph anything by accident, especially the orbs which are sometimes hard to see. See the walkthrough for the locations of all the required items.

Occult Investigator10
Collect ALL the occult items that are around the house.    

You need to collect all the occult related items...there are 8 in total. 4 are rewarded for completing the puzzles in the secret rooms that each have an achievement tied to them for entering, while the other 4 are simply found laying around in various places. See the walkthrough for their locations.

*GLITCH* Some folks have mentioned that if you hit either the HOME or SEARCH buttons during a puzzle you will no longer be able to solve them when you return to the game, making his achievement unobtainable in that playthrough. All I can say is be very careful when solving the puzzles not to accidentally hit one of those buttons.

Diary Demon10
Collect all the pages of the diary.    

There are 5 pages in total to collect. They look like tiny scraps of paper on the ground. See the walkthrough for their locations.

The Medium10
Photograph all the ghostly messages around the house.    

There are 5 messages in total to photograph. They are always etched into the backwall of a room. Sometimes they are not visible for some reason. If the walkthrough states a message is in a particular room and you can't seem to find it, just keep waiting. See the walkthrough for their locations.

Investigate all the rooms in the house, even the secret ones...    (1) 

This achievement requires that you visit ever "room" in the game, including the secret ones. Following the walkthrough you will get this achievement, as it directs you to all the rooms.

NOTE: Make sure you click on the tree when you you are in the garden area out back of the house near the shed. The walkthrough very subtly mentions this, but it is required to net the "Explorer" achievement, even though nothing is significant about the tree "room." Also, make sure to check your info screen at least once during your playthrough. Some have found that this screen actually counts as one of the rooms for this achievement. To enter the info screen, click on the black and white "i" in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.

Art Collector15
Photograph all the strange pictures in the house.    

There are 10 paintings in total to photograph. They are very obvious to find and appear just as you would expect, as paintings of various sizes hung on the walls. See the walkthrough for their locations.

Cypher Master10
Decode all the cases you find in the house.    

There are 5 cases in total to decode. This achievement is the only one that is not missable, as you must open all five chests to complete the game. The combinations for the locks can be determined based on items in your inventory. See the walkthrough for the locations of the cases as well as the codes to unlock them.

Bone Collector10
Photograph all the corpses you come across in the house.    

There are 7 corpses in total to photograph. You won't find these until you start exploring the cellar later in the game. They usually look like a small pile of bones. See the walkthrough for their locations.

Monachus aula15
There is tell of secret rooms in the house, and this is one of them....    

See "Ocularium."

There is tell of secret rooms in the house, and this is one of them....    

These achievements are awarded for entering hidden puzzle rooms in the game. You do not need to solve the puzzles. The puzzle rooms are always located inside small, white vents that you need to smash with the crowbar to enter. See the walkthrough for their locations.

There is tell of secret rooms in the house, and this is one of them....    (2) 

See "Ocularium."

Speedy Solver10
Complete the game within 20 minutes.    

This achievement requires that you finish the game in under 20 minutes. I highly recommend you save this achievement for a second playthrough, although it is likely impossible to get all the other achievements and this one in a single playthrough. The game has a timer in the bottom left of the screen at all times. Just finish before it reaches 20:00. In the walkthrough, there is a speed run guide which makes this achievement cake. The game can easily be completed in under 15 minutes.

*GLITCH REMINDER* Uninstall and re-install the game before you begin your second playthrough.

Spooky Score5
Score more than 80000 points.    

See "Super Spooky Score."

Super Spooky Score5
You need to score more than 100000.    

To net this many points, you need to be very thorough in your casing of the mansion. Solve puzzles, take photos of paranormal activity, visit many rooms. Following the walkthrough, you will definitely get both of these achievements, easily surpassing 150,000 by the time you complete the game.
