This game is not for everyone. Grind is a art for some....
19 Apr 18:54 2017
Lol, so true, cosmo1
31 May 2:08 2017
Grinding is easy, hard is this death necklace. :v
21 Nov 3:36 2017
There was once a time when Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy competed, and they were better for it. Now they work together, but without rivalry they just aren't what they used to be.

Hi!Random cheevos unlocked after death - Thou Hast Gained A Level (5),Thou Hast Learnt a Spell (7),Thou Hast No Need for Torches (8),Thou Hast Seen Sunlight (10).Retroarch(1.6.7),mesen-core.
1 Feb 5:22 2018
Am I the only one who thinks 5 naming achievements is overkill? I mean the game only has 3 save slots.
27 Apr 1:36 2018
Finally MASTERED :D
22 Jul 4:39 2018
after three hours of grinding I accidentally hit CTRL-R which resets the game making me lose all that time went from level 20 to 9
26 Oct 9:12 2018
Mastered. Pretty satisfying.
26 Jan 7:18 2019
This game was a pure slog to finish.
2 Sep 5:43 2019
fucking gay you changed the icon for completion
2 Sep 22:31 2019
S-E-L-L-O-U-T
4 Oct 20:52 2019
Mastered!
10 Feb 15:41 2020
lmao i never knew you could bring the princess to the dragonlord! XD
13 Mar 8:24 2020
I suppose the multiple endings can be missed? Which ones are missable, if any?
23 Mar 9:15 2020
Mastered! On game completion, it doesn't save, which means you can miss on the princess achievements if you return it before getting those for NOT returning her, and "returning her in tow".
23 Mar 9:17 2020
Therefore your required (minimum?) endings, while not having returned her : Accept dragonlords' offer, "be a jerk to women", and finally "return with bagage".
7 Apr 11:35 2020
It doesn't save? You sure about that? this is one of the earliest NES games to have a save feature that wasn't password based. You just go talk to the king when it's time to save your game.
7 Apr 11:41 2020
The easiest way to get the chevos for the princess is to drop a save state right before you go to Charlock to fight the dragon lord, assuming your not in hardcore mode. Then you can pull off all of the princess related chevos on one game save.
7 Apr 17:54 2020
Yes there is saving, only it doesn't save upon beating the game, so you can kill him over and over -- however you can't grab the princess more than once, so you have to plan that out. (And Hardcore for life!)
