I understand that the game is rough on normal and no passwords makes it even harder, but this is my first set of achieves and I wanted them to be a challenge rather than something you can run right through and get immediately.

It will take practice and it will be tough, but the game it no longer than 2 hours once you get the hang of it. I hope this proves to be a challenge and I hope you have fun trying to get these achievements!

Ran through the game on HC mode, 3 achieves did not pop, they are now fixed.
23 Feb 21:45 2015
unintentionally reseted the game in the last boss Instead of pressing the TAB to get to continue fester, I will not play again till there. :(
23 Feb 22:07 2015
Oh man, that's harsh, it should be easier the second time through and maybe ou can get the crab level on your way :)

Any plans of adding more achievs? Or would you rather increase some of the existing ones to complete the 400-points limit?

How exactly does secret slayer work?
8 Apr 12:43 2016
About Secret Slayer....Someone should wipe those achievements nobody knows how to do...Mystical Ninja of the snes has the same problem...

I really don't see the point of having no Passwords, using these doesn't help you in any way except to take up from where you left off, as an extra convenience. Besides, it's not like you could get all previous achievements anyway, right?

Secret slayer seems to be playing the game on normal, completing the secret crab level, and then spam killing a bunch of skeletons early on in the green temple level. That at least is when it unlocked for me. Thank you SamuraiGoroh for the help!

Thank god someone got rid of secret slayer

Sorry, I've been absent from the site for some time and just now getting back into the swing of things. Set updated to 400 points also leaving Secret Slayer out.

Achieves should pop at the proper times now. If anyone would like more achieves for this game (no damage, no continues, etc.) Just send me a message and left me know!

Beated the first boss, but it got achievement for beating 3rd.

Love this game, but it's not worth the fucking price people want physical copies for.
