All achievements are for normal difficulty or higher (unless it's specified in the description). Everything is protected against cheat codes.

Using Mega Crush and collecting blue power-ups while doing "Galactic Hunter" achievements, may cause not getting desired achievement (every kill must be counted seperately).

Hi Evereyone....I asked meleu to link the hash 8c70e7de02f2056a646511731b4ecdf4 to this game. It's a MSU1 patch for better sound effects.
