I'm confused, some badges I didn't earn! I beat the game just using the "M" with a "R".

Ace Soldier didn't pop for me even though I didn't use Konami Code, is it somehow broken with savestates? Beat first and second loop, even got the Gunless achievement, but no Ace Soldier, weird.

The achievement with the boss in the second level does not work and with the passage of the game the second time

Despite what Salsa says, "Oculus Drift" and "Red Falcon Recapitulation" do not work. Additionally, I believe the user who has gotten them (tmfpl) might be cheating.

Guys, the Oculus Drift and the Red Falcon Recapitulation achievements do not work. The person that got them is probably cheating.

The achievement Oculus Drift works

Yeah, now it seems to work, weird...

6553500 points is max score in this game. It can't be beat. Sad -_-

The new leaderboard submits at the end of the game. You can't loop. Hitting max isn't the same. Though it's probably possible in one game if you're crazy about it.

Balfik
You can't get any more points, after u achieve 6553500 score. I tested this today, and i can't get any more of point's. That's why 13 people in leaderboard High Score have exactly this number of score 6553500.

I know. The top two leaderboards on the list are retired now. Check the forum for details.
