I considered the key catching easter egg. I couldnt get it to work very well, except jumping over the key. So i thought it would annoy players more than anything.

I dont need farm to get 100,000 points but i can easily finish without continue . Today i finished the game making 138,000 without continuing and no farm .

Key is not an easter egg . This is not the way to get the NICE CATCH. And to explain here as it does not make sense the request of the trophy plus assure you , is not how you handle this detail , simply use the control for it.

Everytime i get the key Sirus... kkk!

A little bit easy :/A no-continue run would be interesting. And beating all the bosses with all the weapons too (one for each boss/weapon)

All bosses with all weapons would be fun, except apparently Ohme with sword is 100% impossible. Also again there's no room left.

I identified the NICE CATCH trigger in memory. But what I meant is, its easy to do if u let it hit the ground, then jump over it. This is a programming flaw in the original game.

For a harder challenge for you hardcore bunch try the SNES version. It is MUCH tougher than this version.

I prefer this version, outterside this version is more HARDCORE then Super Slowdown Ghosts...kkkk.

Alright, because of popular demand i've added a no-continue achievement. This one is a monster guys good luck.

Psycho Cannon is broken. I tried it on both revision 1 and 2. No dice.

Ghouls n' Ghosts, the Genesis version, is way harder than the "Slowdown" one... period.

Accomplished "Ultimate Victory" twice now and it wasn't recognized either time. Internet connection is not an issue.
