Glad someone's finally bringing achievements to one of my all time favorite games. Can't wait!
9 Jul 1:56 2015
An excuse to finally beat this game. Got to the plutonium boss once as a kid, didn't have the heart to pick it back up again.
19 Jul 21:22 2015
Thank you for putting this up. I was actually delaying a play-thru with hopes of this.
22 Jul 4:18 2015
2 bugs:1. Using homing missiles doesn't work.2. Using the shortcut through the blocks to get you out of Stage 3 doesn't pop the achievement. UGH.
22 Jul 5:28 2015
Using Homing Missles works, you have to press B repeatedly whiled pressing down inside the Sophia. Keep pressing until it triggers. The value for that address is stubborn.
22 Jul 9:51 2015
Shortcut worked for me. Homing missiles worked as well.
30 Jul 10:22 2015
Area 3 shortcut didn't trigger for me, and I was using Blaster Master (USA).nes.
30 Jul 16:54 2015
OK, I changed the requirements on "Detour" so that you don't have to jump up over the ledge to open the achievement. So it would trigger at the moment you find the path instead. But people :) please report any broken achievements in RANes, thanx !
30 Jul 20:44 2015
Thanks for fixing the achievement. And I would report things through RANES, but I only get a response less than half the time. It seems to be a little more effective to post on the game's wall. I'll just use both next time.

Blaster Master is my fav game of NES.
9 Aug 20:37 2016
I think that was uncle fred!!!
3 Jan 16:39 2017
My favorite game of all time.
26 Feb 5:06 2017
full night to beat, uh oh.

Would be nice if RANes had a Save Point feature for games like this. If you can't complete the game in one sitting, you simply use this, which creates a temporary snapshot that is deleted when you return to the game. Useful for hardcore.
16 Jan 21:51 2018
Playing like how the game was intended to be played is the true purpose of hardcore mode. With that said, temp saving may not happen at least when in relation to playing in hardcore mode.

Kdecks has updated the set to nullify if the boss glitch is used. If you attempt to use this exploit, any further achievements will not be earned. This blocks players from skipping bosses as the set is mostly progress based.
