I've got an idea for a 10-point achievement (making it 400 total): Kill Boom-Boom with a Star (6-Fortress 1 is the only level possible). Title of achievement is: "YOLO Boom-Boom Kill". What do you guys think of that?
16 May 23:03
Gmario37
Or what about the two 5-point achievements: one where you break the rubble that leads to the Mushroom House (Tanooki Suit only) (Title: Giant Rubble) and that Lakitu 1-up at the end of the level trick (Title: 1-up Trick at End of Level)?

Edited Sandy Rubble to include the one accessing the 3rd screen and added the mushroom house behind it to the Dominated Desert Land requirements. Added an achievement for a shortcut in World 4. http://retroachievements.org/Achievement/33345

I feel this will people with obscurities, which is common place on the NES. http://strategywiki.org/wiki/Super_Mario_Bros._3/Table_of_Contents

Can you bring back the 655,350 achievement? There's nothing for score in this game, it'd be nice for it to return.

I have A LOT of achievements that don't trigger: the "white house" in world 1, memory and luck, earn a 1up with coins, etc. While others triggered...

Goomba Massacre isn't working for me. I am consistently getting in the ballpark of 25 1-ups and the achievement isn't popping.

I'm running Super Mario Bros 3 (U) (PRG 0) on hardcore and White Mushroom 1 activates fine, might be worth switching rom?
22 Oct 16:23
TinNova
I think yes since similar ROMs tend to share achievements, for example some games share achievements with every localization, PAL, US, JAP, etc :)

I found a small Rom called Super Mario All-Stars NES. Which is like the SNES All-Stars. Could the Achievements on 4 games work here too? Its said you can Patch it with Super Mario Bros. 3 (U) (PRG1) [!].nes.

So sad there's no achievements for killing the sun, it's the freaking sun! hahaha

Does Dominating World 8 also include the hand stages?

Are the leaderboards closed or something?
26 Feb 21:05
Brian
Somebody else added them, and I disabled them. Those constant popups take away from the game, and I also wouldn't have used that time format.

Any one used the room hack?

I'm seeing many of these achievements not unlock. It's strange because some do (getting to a new world, for example). Breaking down rubble in World 2 didn't work however, nor did finding the coin ship or getting any of three consecutive star cards.
