Impressive list! I think I will keep in mind the current 25 retro ratio :-)

As someone who normally likes challenges, this goes over the edge. Several achievements are very frustrating to get with the best example for going through the entire game without losing a single life. Levels like 57 cry for item luck to get through

without dying and a few more where you get screwed up when you don't get a full screen wipe item. Not even talking about how level 99 can screw you easily up. I liked the idea of getting some more achievements for BB but nearly 200 totally overkills

it and turns an enjoyable game into a torture when you'd like to aim for the master achievement.

If for two player, might be better to like make two categories for a game. With two player, some of the achievements might turn out better but alone, it's very harsh. For an experiement, it might be acceptable but from my view, hundreds of

Drakhatos
achievements won't turn a game better with just numbers, even more when it's a game like BB. More achievements might work better for longer games like RPG's but else, I prefer quality over quantity. ^^

Drakhatos
Well, seeing how many people got achievements from over some over hundred shows that either they're scared/annoyed/whatever else from how much you have to do or simply show no interest because nearly 200 achievements goes over the edge. I just have

Drakhatos
zero motivation to even try to get most of the remaining achievements because they might look like being balanced from the developers point but I can assure you that it's not from the players view. Give it yourself a go without savestates and see for
12 Aug 23:27
Drakhatos
yourself that getting some of these achievements isn't really what I'd call fun. Playing with two people might make them easier but alone, you're screwed for some of them. Just my opinion but still, for sure a lot of work to make many achievements ^^

popoki
kinda feel like there's such a thing as toooooo many / too hard achievements even for a classic game like this lmao. Yeah basically what drak said. It's definitely cool to see a huge passionate set once in awhile but it makes more sense for like

cirello's RPG sets. Bubble bobble is something people wanna play for fun and have a handful of tough achievements for. This is kinda overkill? I'd rather have this than a wimpy set though so idk.

One problem with this game and getting HC achievements is this game is designed for the arcade and to be always on. Item appearance is based on behavior or your actions from previous games, so it's going to be harder if you reset the game.

Many of the achievements you can get by continuing, and also using passwords without being reset. unless it says otherwise you're good to go.

I didn't find the current set of 75 to be overly difficult. There are some hard ones in there (100 drops without dying, red grumple without dying, 75 enemies without dying after lvl 57, glutton of caviar), but overall, I think it's a good set.

WampaCow
For the coop achievements, Bubble Bobble is programmed to require coop for the happy endings. I think ignoring this in the achievements would do the game a disservice.

You can avoid the co-op by putting in the password for the final boss and then using 2 players in that one room. Once you get those endings you can just play the rest on 1 player
