Introduction:
Welcome to Endless Fables: Dark Moor, another game in the Artifex Mundi catalogue. If you're unfamiliar with their games, they're old school point and click adventure games with a heavy emphasis on puzzles and hidden object scenes. The achievements in this game are pretty standard compared to all their recent entries, with the only exception being you need to complete eight minigames in under a minute instead of just one. Everything else is par for the course (story stuff, collectibles, and miscellaneous achievements), including the usual missables. Let's get started.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
As with all Artifex Mundi games, there are collectibles. There are two types: pumpkins and morphing objects. Not every scene has one, but it's still best to keep a collectible guide handy at all times. Like most Artifex Mundi games, there are multiple points of no return. As a result, I highly recommend keeping a collectible guide open while you play through the game (a great one can be found in Mirage Hunter (45G). I highly recommend grabbing each collectible as soon as you reach that scene.

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. Two are game-spanning:
 The rest are one-off achievements:
 The two game-spanning achievements just requires you to not press dpad-up.png during minigames or HOPs. Refer to the walkthrough in Monster Master (30G) if you need any help with minigames; you can just mash button-a.png during HOPs if you're playing on Casual. As for the one-off ones, you should be able to knock out all of those within the first 30 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 you have any concerns about completing a minigame quick enough, you can make use of the walkthrough in Monster Master (30G) to ensure you have the solutions to those puzzles handy for when you start each one. As for the two HOP ones, there is a simple and guaranteed method to use to get both of those, described in Precise Seeker (30G).

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 will then need to play through part of the bonus chapter. There, you'll find the rest of the collectibles and get a handful more story achievements. Once you unlock Table Traverser (30G), that should be your last achievement in the game.

Conclusion:
This game is pretty standard as far as Artifex Mundi games go. Really the only thing that stands out about this game is that it's quite a bit creepier, and even has a jump scare or two. Aside from that, the achievements are very easy and the completion will only take you a couple hours. Hope you enjoyed, and congratulations on another completion.

  • Complete two Minigames without skipping.

    *MISSABLE*

    Refer to Grand Master (45G) for more information.
  • Cadet

     

    30

    Complete four Minigames without skipping.

    *MISSABLE*

    Refer to Grand Master (45G) for more information.
  • Finish all Minigames without skipping.

    *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 Monster Master (30G). It contains the solutions to every minigame in the game.
  • Finish two Minigames in 60 seconds without skipping.

    *MISSABLE*

    Refer to Faster than Lightning (40G) for more information.
  • Finish eight Minigames in 60 seconds without skipping.

    *MISSABLE*

    Unlike other Artifex Mundi games that task you with finishing a single minigame in under a minute, this game tasks you with finishing eight of them that quickly. While that might sound intimidating, this game is loaded with very simple minigames. In fact, most of the minigames in this game can be completed in under a minute, especially if you've played other Artifex Mundi games and are therefore familiar with many of the types of minigames that are reused in each game.

    Of course, if you want to be absolutely certain, you can always consult the walkthrough in Monster Master (30G). That walkthrough has the solutions for each mingame, so you can check them beforehand and then quickly complete each one. This achievement tracks, so you'll be able to see if the minigame you just finished counted toward this achievement.
  • Finish a HOP in 90 seconds.

    *MISSABLE*

    As the description says, you need to complete any HOP in under 90 seconds. 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 Precise Seeker (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 are, you should be able to quickly click them all in under 90 seconds.
  • Finish a HOP without mistake.

    *MISSABLE*

    As the description says, you'll need to complete any HOP 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.
  • Finish all HOPs without any hints.

    *MISSABLE*

    As the descriptions says, you'll need to complete all HOPs in the base game (bonus chapter not included) without using a hint (i.e. without pressing dpad-up.png). Because you can be (and should be) playing 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. Unfortunately, HOPs in this game are all randomized, so a guide won't really be applicable. However, although it make take a bit longer in some HOPs than others, mashing button-a.png around each HOP is sure to be sufficient.
  • Find all collectible items.

     
    *MISSABLE*

    Refer to Mirage Hunter (45G) for more information.
  • Find all morphing objects.

     
    *MISSABLE*

    There are two types of collectibles in this game: pumpkins, which are just sitting there, and morphing objects, which morph (i.e. regular items on the screen, every few seconds, will morph into a new object for a few seconds, then morph back). There are 12 pumpkins and 10 morphing objects. There are actually close to 30 "scenes" in the game. You therefore will have some scenes with no collectibles, some with one, and a few with one of each. There are only a couple points of no return in this game, but that still makes these collectibles highly missable. As a result, I highly recommend that, as soon as you get to a new scene for the first time, you immediately find any collectibles before doing any other progression. I highly recommend keeping a collectible guide open while you play, and always look out for the next ones. A great collectible guide over on Steam, complete with screenshots, can be found HERE.

    Since there are no achievements tied to difficulty, you can and should play on Casual. Doing so allows you to use hints throughout the game to see where to go and what to do next, with no impact to achievements. Additionally, since you're on Casual, you can mash button-a.png during all HOPs without penalty, helping you quickly find all of the items in each one.

    The only remaining potential stumbling block left is the minigames. Most are quite easy, with only a couple that could potentially trip you up. If you ever get stuck, or just prefer not to think at all, refer to the following walkthrough HERE, courtesy of Big Fish Games.
