Are those Amazing BrandO references I see? ;) Very awesome if so.

Why yes, yes they are! I wondered if anyone would get them, but with how those songs get stuck in my head as I play the related games I couldn't NOT do it. Plus, they make pretty cool achievement names on their own anyway..

I certainly think so! And yeah, I know what you mean. Those lyrics have a way of sticking with you. x) Awesome set of achievements! Looking forward to attempting 'em all.

''Dark Metamorphosis'' seems hard, did everything else in NES as a child, except the creative ones of course, like ''Mana Efficiency'', I even beat hard mode as Trevor alone, favourite NES game by far. Excited about doing it again for all this,

It's actually not as hard as you'd think! Try fighting Death with Alucard a few times and he might just become your favorite character to fight him with. I'm glad you're excited though! I had a great time working on this set.

The invincibility potion achievement didn't trigger for me. Also, the in-emulator bug report feature didn't work for me.

I got that achievement with a reset. Thanks.

FYI you should use the (U) version of the rom for all achievements to work properly. I'm considering making a set sometime for Akumajo Dracula Densetsu since, say, Mario 2 and Mario Advance have separate sets.

Heart of fire no working

Yeah, as mentioned above, 'Heart of Fire' seems to be bugged, as I was not awarded it when I beat all three bosses at the end, and I do not want to do that again.

It'd be great to see this list get ported over to the Japanese version of the game. :D

That's a great game and really hard too! I got the Brando references. It was really amazing and funny mastering this set. Good job popoki!

Is Iron Blue Intention supposed to be unlocked when Sypha gets the ice spell?
27 Oct 16:06 2018
DisdonnPlays
Slowly working on getting these done. The Sypha and Grant ones will likely be hardest since I typically pick Alucard
