Agatha Christie Hercule Poirot The First Cases: 100% Achievement Guide

Here are All achievements guide in Agatha Christie – Hercule Poirot: The First Cases.

 

Introduction

  • Number of achievements: 46
  • Number of missable achievements: 7 (Exquisite artwork, Sunken secrets, Take a break, Probably the greatest detective in the world, What else did I miss?, Room with a view, Work-life balance)
  • Minimum Playthroughs: 1
  • Free-Roam After Story: No
  • Does difficulty affect achievements?: No

All achievements are fairly easy to obtain. Most missable achievements are related to inspecting objects at various locations, so as long as you are thorough you should have no problem getting them all in a single playthrough. I recommend starting each location with inspecting all items in it and zooming out and double checking nothing was missed before talking to anyone or exploring any mindmap.

There is only one save slot and it’s autosave. I recommend creating your own “chapter select” by creating a backup saves at the beginning of each chapter in case something was missed. The saves are in:

C:\Users\<your_username>\AppData\LocalLow\Microids\

Simply exit to the main menu (to ensure nothing is being written to the files)and copy the whole folder to a different location.

Achievements are presented in chronological order although it’s possible to unlock them in a slightly different order depending or your decisions like who to talk first or if you start from talking to characters or checking your mind maps.

Some achievements span across multiple chapters, they are mentioned in every relevant chapter at the beginning. These are not ordered chronologically to avoid cluttering the list.
