Easy Trophy Lists in the EU Digital Sale, Ends July 11th

By Sam Quirke,
Fresh on the heels of our article highlighting the easiest trophy lists among June's new releases, we wanted to bring you some of the simplest completions in the current Digital Zone sale on the EU PlayStation Store. It's a mixed bag of quality, but if you're just after the shiny trophies you should consider this list before the sale ends on July 11th.

Help us improve our listings by submitting your completion times when you finish off a trophy list. Not sure how to submit your estimates? Check out our guide!

Black: The Fall

Black the Fall


Sale price: £6.19 / €7.49

I had the chance to play this at EGX Rezzed a couple of years ago. If you liked LIMBO and INSIDE you'll likely find this enjoyable, although it doesn't quite reach the same heights. Still, it's a straightforward completion that shouldn't take more than a couple of hours.

Celeste

Celeste


Sale price: £11.99 / €14.99

I've played God of War, Detroit: Become Human and many other games this year, yet Celeste is still top of my list for Game of the Year so far. It's a beautiful story, the platforming is pitch-perfect and the soundtrack is one of my all-time favourites. It's notoriously difficult though, so how has it ended up on this list? The game ships with an Assist Mode that essentially opens up a cheats menu, making almost the entire list a cakewalk. I strongly recommend picking this one up and trying it without using the cheats as the base game is very rewarding. For those of you looking to rack up a relatively quick Platinum though, dial all of those cheats up to 11 and follow a guide for the collectible strawberries — you'll sail through. (Only one trophy is unaffected by cheats, but it's still not too difficult.)

Devious Dungeon (with Vita Cross-Buy)

Devious Dungeon


Sale price: £3.29 / €3.99

A lot of games that look like Devious Dungeon turn out to be fiendishly difficult like the old classics that inspired their pixel art style. Thankfully that's not the case here. Reportedly the game's five bosses really aren't that tough, and the whole list should take you about five hours at most. You can boot it up on your Vita and get another Platinum for no extra cost.

Floor Plan: Hands-On Edition

Floor Plan


Sale price: £3.29 / €3.99

PlayStation VR gets some representation in today's list thanks to Floor Plan. It's full of classically insane point-and-click puzzling that would likely get frustrating without a guide, especially as there is a speed run trophy. Luckily we already have a full video guide to getting the Platinum thanks to rus199410. Make sure to give the guide a thumbs up if it helps you!

Gem Smashers

Gem Smashers


Sale price: £3.29 / €3.99

It might not look great, but Gem Smashers is a cheap and easy route to some trophies. It's unlikely to take more than 5 hours maximum to smash through the whole Brick-Breaker-esque adventure.

Grim Legends Collection

Grim Legends 3: The Dark City


Sale price: £18.99 / €23.99
Sale price (PS Plus Subscribers): £15.99 / €20.39

Once again Artifex Mundi's games turn up in a list of easy trophies, and with good reason. Their simple yet mostly irritation-free hidden-object puzzles shouldn't take anyone very long, and if you look at a guide it will go by very quickly. The entire trilogy of Grim Legends is on sale, but you can also pick up the third instalment standalone and still get a discount.

Hex Tunnel and Hex Tunnel Touch

Hex Tunnel


Sale price: £2.49 / €2.99 (each — two versions sold separately)

Another VR entry in today's list, but not necessarily one for anyone except the most persistent trophy hunters. Hex Tunnel VR and its non-VR variant Hex Tunnel Touch have had a pretty miserable critical reception across the board. On the other hand, it'll take you less than an hour to finish it off.

InkSplosion (including Vita Cross-Buy)

inksplosion


Sale price: £2.49 / €2.99

InkSplosion is another discounted title benefiting from Cross-Buy, meaning you get twice the trophies if you have a PlayStation 4 and a Vita. The game has a Hard Mode, but luckily you're only expected to kill one enemy while you're there. This colourful shmup shouldn't take you more than an hour to finish up.

Midnight Deluxe including Vita Cross-Buy)

Midnight Deluxe


Sale price: £2.49 / €2.99

I just finished up Midnight Deluxe in the name of research, and it's not brilliant. You use Angry Birds-style flicking movements to fling a small white box person through a LIMBO-like landscape towards the finish of each level. The controls are frustrating and actually hitting your intended trajectory feels a little unfairly random at times, but you restart from death quickly and none of the puzzles are too taxing. It may feel like longer, but it's unlikely that it'll take you more than an hour to complete the list.

Pic-A-Pix Color including Vita Cross-Buy)

Pic A Pix


Sale price: £3.29 / €3.99

I'm a big fan of Picross puzzles generally, and Pic-a-Pix Color scratches the itch. They're pretty straightforward to complete once you understand the basics, and with very few difficult challenges in the trophy list you should be wrapped up in under 10 hours — considerably less if you have a guide, which I'm gradually putting together. The game is a little sparse for the big screen but will suit the Vita very well, so it's a great game for Cross-Buy.

Puzzle Showdown 4K

Puzzle Showdown 4K


Sale price: £1.69 / €1.99

This is a traditional board puzzle game, but you can rack up a huge chunk of the trophy list in one go by just completing a fairly advanced puzzle with the timer on. Be warned though, some of the trophies need a second controller for local play. The whole thing should be done in a couple of hours.

Tacoma

Tacoma


Sale price: £9.49 / €11.99

Finishing off with another game that's actually decent as well as easy, Tacoma comes from the same studio as Gone Home but without the minor irritations of the latter's trophy list. You'll play as an explorer replaying the holographic recordings of a crew that has seemingly disappeared from their space station. Expect touching human drama and more than one surprising subversion on your expectations just like Gone Home. You'll be done in a couple of hours. It was well worth the original asking price, let alone at this discount — although some report crashes and screen tear along the way, which is a shame.

If you pick any of these up, why not write up some trophy guides to help your fellow hunters? You can even volunteer to write the full walkthrough if we don't have one already!
