I've never played the NES version of this before. It should've been named Lagodius, lol.

I finished it in Manual power-up mode, and it gave me the achievement for Auto instead.

Weird, that shouldn't happen. I plan to revisit and add bonus "DLC"-style achievements only compatible with the Famicom game, so then I will take a look at it. For now, be sure you are using the Euro version of Parodius, not the Famicom for that one.

2 new achievements added: "Moai Ambush" and "Tip of the Iceberg" which are secret level/easter egg-based achievements exclusive to the Famicom release.

All progress and item achievements should be now universally compatible with both versions (PAL and FAM), but still tweaking some things out before its all clear.

The "Island of Pirates" achievement popped for me when I died the first time on level 1 (Famicom version, fceumm in retroarch)

"Island of Pirates" and all other progress achievements updated, along with fix to the Manual/Auto duo. It's safe now to say both Famicom and Palcom versions are fully compatible with the set.
