I have to apologize, "coin collector" is mine, and I was new at the site when I did that, I'll remove it when I get home from work. Sorry about this.

Hidden Glove and Hidden Blue Wing Boots really need to be addressed: I tried the Wing Boots at 2 spots and it didn't work. Either the achievements need to be updated in their description to the spot they're activated or the achievement itself(cont)
19 Oct 0:34 2015
needs to be updated to include all spots: At the current rate it's random and IDK where to go to collect them. There was a problem with certain boss achievements with this as well
30 Apr 12:24 2016
The wing boots that triggered it for me are near the boss that guards the Battle Suit and the Magical Rod. The Hidden Glove is above this area, you can just barely see it behind a pillar. But you'll need Wing Boots to get it...
30 Apr 12:25 2016
...because of an unjumpable gap in the floor.

As for the rank achievements (esp at the beginning ranks) it's easy to get 2 or 3 ranks on one huge spelunking outside of the town and come back to speak to the guru effectively missing some of the lower rank achievements.
6 Aug 5:16 2016
I understand why Thundard did the = val instead of the >= rank due to save states and abusing passwords. I mean who's to say someone didn't have a legitimate password, but who's to say they did? It's just annoying to have to play the game again
6 Aug 5:17 2016
to get those few pesky achievements that slipped through due to kicking some @$$. ^_^
11 Dec 6:34 2016
Mind posting a video where the Hidden Gloves and Boots are? I have no clue on where those are
16 Jan 5:10 2017
The Achievements are not working for me.
31 Jan 15:27 2017
Any word on the locations of the Winged Boots and Glove? I'd really like to know where they are
1 Apr 0:31 2017
Weird, every time I load Ganbare Goemon, Faxanadu shows up on my Retro Achievements wall.

Um de meus jogos favoritos de nintendo,agora completo.
12 Jul 20:16 2017
Thundard, great work, great set. Very much enjoyed replaying this game. Thank you. 5*.
24 Aug 22:16 2017
Once again, like NightmareJames asked, does anyone have a video or something of where to get the Hidden Glove and Wing Boots Achievement? Thanks!
25 Aug 2:26 2017
I found where the Hidden Glove is to get the Achievement. I'll record a video of where it is soon. I still need the location of the Hidden Wing Boots ...
2 Aug 23:35 2018
Man, the hidden gloves were annoying. I cant make a video, but: head left out of daybreak. Go left 2 screens, down 1 screen. Its hidden behind a pillar. Head left 1 screen, use the boots to fly up, then right again. Voila!

Sucks when you miss Achievements for levels because you gain a couple levels at once. Really seems like something that should be fixed.
29 Jun 19:12 2020
I do really love this game. Loved it since it was released. Played through it countless times and it never gets old.
