Do the ones for beating the game in a certain time stack or do you need to beat it 5 separate times?
5 Jun 3:59 2018
They do stack
29 Nov 3:26 2018
Battery save protection is added to the set as well as other fixes.
3 Dec 23:21 2018
If you're playing on RetroArch please use QuickNES core only for this set.

Question: Am I going crazy or is the ice beam achievement glitched? Because I picked up the one in Brinstar first, then picked it up in Norfair but the achievement didn't pop. Was I supposed to pick it up in Norfair first for the achievement to work?
10 Dec 15:36 2018
ice beam achievement is glitched
12 Dec 21:34 2018
And I guess alienation is also broken.
20 Dec 17:22 2018
Ice Beam was broken. Fixed now.
21 Dec 8:33 2018
Alienation wasn't completely broken but it's fixed too.

And that's precisely why I love this community. Only time I had played this game was inside the Metroid Zero Mission bonus and only did the basic. Now, after mastering this classic, I feel so much closer to this epic series.
15 Apr 18:32 2020
It isn't just about the points, it's about truly diving into the game. It's about learning how to truly understand the soul of each game. Thank you, RA.
5 Jul 17:45 2020
played through the game on retroarch and only received the 5 achievements for each level. basic achievements didnt work.. any advice would help
5 Aug 16:07 2020
There's def an issue with FCEUmm and a few achievements. If you want all to pop use QuickNes core.
28 Aug 17:53 2020
retroarch says achives not supported?
29 Aug 13:42 2020
You need to use the Quicknes Core like I said in my last post here.
10 Sep 22:10 2020
Platinado!
28 Oct 16:12 2020
Love it!
16 Nov 16:55 2020
Finally mastered this
20 Nov 1:18 2020
quick question before I start trying the speedruns, what is considered a "loop"? Also, can I use the second controller to use the password screen in order to backtrack faster?
20 Nov 15:08 2020
Loop refers to your current playthrough of the game. After the credits of your first run you can restart the game with all the items of your previous playthrough. For this reason, only the 1st loop is considered on the achievements.
