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?
23 Apr 10:39 2019
Salsa
Damage? There are no hp in this game
23 Apr 11:51 2019
teie
Since there is no lifebar/hp, no damage = without losing a life. Logic.
23 Apr 12:09 2019
Salsa
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.

Why removed the achievement of the passage of the game without death and shield?

Arekdias
Too unfair for casuls. I am mostly against that but at least it will not be wasted and will be moved to bonus set. Though it would be much better if achievements were demoted/moved AFTER a bonus set appears and not before.

Salsa
This achievement was demoted right now, because it violates develpers CoC. This set will also be recored regardless, so you don't need to worry about your points.
