Introduction:
Welcome to Demon Hunter: Riddles of Light, another point and click adventure game from Artifex Mundi. If this is somehow your first one, they are first person point and click games with a heavy emphasis on puzzles and hidden object scenes. As with all Artifex Mundi games, there are collectibles to hunt down, many miscellaneous achievements, and then a handful of story ones. Thankfully this game can be played on the easiest difficulty, and the miscellaneous achievements are all relatively simple ones. Let's get started.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
As with all Artifex Mundi games, there are collectibles. There are also many points of no return, meaning most collectibles are easy to miss. As a result, I highly recommend keeping a collectible guide open while you play through the game (a great one can be found in Nut's Little Helper (60G)). Every scene has at least one, and then some of the scenes have two. Because of this, every time you come to a new scene for the first time, you should make it a point to find all collectibles in the scene first before proceeding with the story.

Aside from the missable collectible achievements, there are a number of miscellaneous achievements that are also missable, so you should be aware of them and, ideally, take care of them as soon as possible so you don't have to worry about them for the remainder of your playthrough. One is game-spanning:
 The rest are one-off achievements:
 The one game-spanning achievement just requires you to not press dpad-up.png during minigames. Refer to it if you need any tips. One important thing to note here is that there is no achievement for completing all HOPs without using a hint, only three of them. Therefore, as soon as you unlock All-seeing Eye of Ra (40G), you can feel free to use hints during HOPs as much as you want. As for the one-off ones, you should be able to knock out all of those within the first 15 or so minutes of the game, allowing you to play through the rest of the game without worrying about missing any achievements (aside from collectibles). If there are any you aren't sure of or confident about, jump to their solutions to get a better idea of what to do in advance.

Aside from the collectible achievements and bunch of miscellaneous achievements above, all other achievements are story related. By the time you complete the main game, you should have all achievements. The bonus chapter is not required for any achievements.

Conclusion:
Demon Hunter doesn't add anything unique or interesting as far as gameplay, although its Egyptian setting is a nice change of pace from all of the modern ones lately. The minigames are quite easy in this one, and despite there seemingly being a lot of HOPs in this game, they tended to be quite easy as well..On top of that, thanks to some easier miscellaneous achievements, this is one of the easier and quicker Artifex Mundi games. Congrats on another quick (and hopefully enjoyable) completion!

There are 22 achievements with a total of 1000 points

  • Complete a Hidden Object Puzzle without a Hint.

    *MISSABLE*

    Refer to All-seeing Eye of Ra (40G) for more information.
  • Complete a Hidden Object Puzzle without a mistake.

    *MISSABLE*

    As the description says, you'll need to complete any HOP (only the ones with the names of the items or the shadows of the items count; the "find and use" ones don't count for this achievement) without making any mistakes. This achievement isn't anywhere near as difficult as it sounds. While you could do this the legitimate way (take your time to find every object, ensuring you don't make any mistakes), there is an exploit you can take advantage of to make this much easier.

    When you reach an HOP, pause and quit to the main menu to save your game right before you start it. Now, play the HOP, making as many mistakes as you want, until you find all but one objects, making a note of where every object is. Locate the final object but don't click on it. Instead, press the guide button and force close the game app (do NOT quit to the main menu, as this will save your game). Relaunch the game app, continue your game, and you'll be back at your save before you started the HOP. Now that you know where all of the objects are, carefully go through the HOP to find them all,easily doing it without making any mistakes. If you do make a mistake, you can always repeat the process of force closing the game app to try again.
  • Complete a Hidden Object Puzzle in less than a minute.

    *MISSABLE*

    As the description says, you need to complete any HOP in under one minute. Because you're (presumably) playing on Casual difficulty, you have the ability to mash button-a.png during all HOPs to find objects without any penalty. As a result, there is a pretty good chance you will unlock this naturally while using that method.

    However, if you'd like to guarantee this achievement, you can actually use the exact same exploit described in Eye of Horus (30G) - find all objects but don't click on the last one, force close the game app, relaunch it, and now that you know where all of the objects, you should be able to quickly click them all in under a minute.
  • Finish 3 Hidden Object Puzzles without a Hint.

    *MISSABLE*

    As the descriptions says, you'll need to complete any three HOPs in the game without using a hint (i.e. without pressing dpad-up.png). Because you can (and should be) play on Casual difficulty, there is no penalty for mashing button-a.png during HOPs to find objects. As a result, you likely won't ever need to use hints since you can just mash around each scene until you find every object.
  • Find 3 Hidden Objects within 3 seconds.

    *MISSABLE*

    This achievement is actually virtually unavoidable while playing normally, assuming you mash button-a.png during HOPs on Casual difficulty to find objects. If you want to guarantee this achievement and don't want to rely on the mashing the get lucky, you have two options:
     
    • Actually find three different objects but don't click on any. Once you've identified three, quickly go around and click on all three in a row.
    • Using the exploit in Eye of Horus (30G) to find all objects, essentially do the same as above and click on three you're sure of as fast as possible.
  • Complete a Minigame in less than a minute.

    *MISSABLE*

    As the description says, you need to complete any minigame in under a minute. This game is chock full of minigames, and the vast majority of them are very fast and easy. You will likely unlock this achievement on one of your first minigames. For example, the very first one involves putting six pieces of paper in their spots. It's virtually unavoidable for this minigame to take more than 30 seconds. If, however, you aren't confident in your abilities, the walkthrough in Bringer of Light (100G) shows the solutions to all minigames. You can always check the solution there beforehand, allowing you to complete a minigame very quickly.
  • Finish all Minigames without skipping them.

    *MISSABLE*

    As the description says, you need to complete every minigame in the game without ever pressing dpad-up.png to skip them. The majority of minigames in this game are very short and easy, but there are a couple that might give you issues. If you ever get stuck, refer to the walkthrough found in Bringer of Light (100G). It contains the solutions to every minigame in the game.
  • Complete 5 Minigames without skipping them.

    *MISSABLE*

    Refer to Thoth Himself (60G) for more information.
  • Find one Collectible.

    *MISSABLE*

    Refer to Nut's Little Helper (60G) for more information.
  • Collect all collectible Stars and Diamonds.

    *MISSABLE*

    There is one type of collectible in this games: stars and diamonds. There are a total of 37 of them across the 33 scenes in the game. As you can expect then, every scene has at least one collectible to find, with some having two. This game has many points of no return, making the collectibles highly missable. I therefore highly recommend that you keep a collectible guide up and follow it as you play. Every time you enter a new scene for the first time, immediately find the collectible(s) in it before proceeding. A great collectible guide complete with screenshots, courtesy of Steam users, can be found HERE.

    This achievement unlocks upon completing the game. After the third HOP without a hint, you can use hints in HOPs as much as you want without voiding achievements. You can also use hints during normal gameplay to see what to do next throughout the entire game without voiding achievements. That leaves only minigames that could pose any challenge whatsoever. They're all quite easy in this game, but if you get stuck at all, refer to THIS GUIDE, courtesy of BigFishGames, who do great walkthroughs complete with screenshots.
