Author's comments:
Don't worry about beating levels, finding ways to kill enemies, or beating the final boss... there are none. Focus solely on your ultimate destiny... doing random tasks that have nothing to do with anything.

Metagame! Self-satisfaction never felt so... artificial!

Achievement Unlocked is a puzzle platformer game by jmtb02. It uses a single simple level to parody the prominence of achievements in modern games.

Design Edit

Achievement Unlocked takes place entirely within a simple room, and the playable character, a blue elephant, can only walk and jump. The purpose of the game is to do a wide variety of tasks in order to complete achievements. These can include jumping on spikes, playing for 60 seconds, or even clicking the link for a walkthrough.
