For more information and basic guides, please view the official forum topic. Thank you. We need to know the secret of the hieros combinations. I just know Extra Life is more than 2 of the same kind.

Second Player will not get the cheevos. :) To reset the game, simply press the SELECT Button after you lose a life.

Can't seem to get "Walk the Falcon" or the 50 silver ingots achievements to trigger. Used omnicide on the sphinx after walking the whole level, but no unlock. You can obtain 5 silver ingots per level, but 20 levels in and still no unlock.

You probably accidentally flied somewhere. It's very sensitive and secondly it has to be in advanced mode or harder. I will look at the silver ingot one.
