I got "Destroy them All Again" after only beating the 1st loop. Also I destroy all Tentacles in Stage 1 several tries but it didn't pop.
18 Oct 21:12 2015
Salsa
Thanks for pointing these two. "Destroy Them All Again" is now fixed. I've reduced requirements for "Tentacle Extermination" to 6 tentacles.

I sent a report on this one last night, but Combat achievement doesn't trigger for me despite beating Stage 5 three times, once on the second loop. All the other Stages unlocked first beat for me on the first loop.

Since the last time I posted, I have since become a developer...so I decided to tackle that achievement. It is fixed now, so people completing Stage 5 should now get an achievement for it.

Also, since all of the achievement titles for the stages are based off of the songs of each stage, I have changed the name of Stage 5's to Thunderbolt since that's the title of the song played during that stage.

Don't remember if I left two of hit values at 0, but such situation might also cause an achievement not to unlock (whe you have more than one counting req, and you leave one of their hits at 0).
15 Jan 11:34 2016
Salsa
Although, the reason this achievement wasn't unlocking was 0x00fb address, which acted different at this this particular stage. I recall adding "boss" into its note.

Salsa
I've edited the code until it unlocked for me in local - I'm always doing this. Sometimes I forgot to save the changes, and that sometimes happen, cause after saving all edited achievements, their font don't change the color from red to black.

In unofficial this works properly. About the name of the song - like I've said before, I've misplaced the title of the piece from arcade version of Life Force (western version of Salamander, which have also some difference in OST tracklist).

Received the "Peace Again" achievement after beating Stage 4 on the second loop. Don't know if it matters, but my last death was in the fast corridor in stage 6 (first loop). Perhaps a stage count error based around looping?

Achivs Unlock in Demonstration game. -.-'

They may need further revision, but I added another condition to the Power-Up achievements so that you have to be in-game for them to trigger. They should no longer trigger while the game is in demo mode.
