This is my first achievement set guys, so even though I was very careful and bugtested a ton there still may be problems here and there; be sure to post them (or ideas/comments/criticisms/whatever) here or on the official forum topic for the game!!

Thought I'd just put this here; For the "finish stage as a character completely" you don't have to enter the stage as that character instead of Trevor. If you enter as Trevor simply change into them without taking a step and it'll work.

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.

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.
