Thanks a million, Salsa. These achievements were kicking my tail, and I enjoyed it a lot. :D

Cheers. Planned to take care of it some time ago. I like challenging sets, both making and playing with. It was a pleasure :)

Thanks for the achievements! Bonus Points I did not unlock for me when I got it on level 1.

Stage Clear Achievements only work if you clear a stage no damage. Why isn't this condition mentioned in the description?

Damage? There are no hp in this game
23 Apr 11:51 2019

Since there is no lifebar/hp, no damage = without losing a life. Logic.

there is no condition for lives included in the code, except one for not having any (game over)

Weird, stage 2 didn't trigger for me until I cleared the stage without losing a life. Stage 3 doesn't trigger at all and I can only assume that it didn't because I lost a life mid-way through the stage.
