Dros: All Achievements Guide

Dros is an action-filled puzzle adventure game that spans several levels. There are several achievements to collect, but some aren’t easy to obtain. Some of these achievements aren’t easily found in a single playthrough, and may require intense platforming to fulfill. Fortunately, knowing the requirements can help you achieve them quickly.

There are two types of achievements: story and gameplay. Story achievements are typically easy to get, while gameplay achievements require more exploration. Dros is full of secrets, and it’s easy to miss achievements the first time through. This guide covers the full list of achievements in Dros and everything you must do to unlock each one.

Story Achievements Guide

There are several areas you explore as you climb Dros’ central tower. This section will be organized by the areas you progress through as you climb the tower.
