I changed the pictures in the case of few achievements just to avoid the duplicated achievement pictures.
I hope you like it:) and I hope Falconburns'll approve them:P

By the way the game's incredibly difficult..especially on hard:P
But the music's awesome:) One of the best on Genesis/Megadrive :)
Anyway I know it's not so important in these kind of shooter games but I found very strange the "story",
especially the end of the game:P I can't really figure out what would be the point of it:P

which version should I play the USA or JAPAN room

Posted: 11 Jan, 2018 01:53
Added protection against cheats ...
Now, if the cheat menu is opened during the game, all achievements will fail.

I tested and all the achievements are working (I have not tested those to finish the game more than once, but if they worked before they will still work)

ROM that I used: Zero Wing (U) - Checksum: 0c14c68e846cd2145e8b6f58011dffda

Me and Alena are wanting to make a revision for this set. Here is a draft of what we have in mind.

- We do NOT want to remove any achievement from the current set. Only rescoring, of course.

- Meme cheevo "all your base are belong to us" for watching intro scene with the best japanese to english translation of the history of videogames.

- Pass through stage X without dying (stage select trick allowed)
Not sure if it's fair to make these cheevos for hard only. Will check it.

- Upgrade each weapon from level 1 to 3 without getting any other weapon
In this game if you change the weapon the level of the previous weapon is kept. So a cheevo for upgrading from 1 to 3 without changing can be interesting.

- Get the level 4 power up
It's a bit tricky to power up your weapon to level 4, so it deserves a cheevo. But as it's a rare situtation on the game, I think that getting the level 4 regardless the weapon is enough (I mean, no need for making 3 cheevos for getting each weapon on level 4).

- Cat Zig: collect 9 lives.

- A score based cheevo
Will check what score should be considered high (and fair) enough for a cheevo.

More cheevos ideas are welcome.

Just a quick question. Are there different ending for multiple completions? Only ask as there are cheevos for beating it twice and three times but no one has bothered.


Weird. Seems people have done it but no numbers on cheevo page

It's a site bug.

Posted: 13 Jan, 2018 22:17
ok, so does the game have multiple endings?

Posted: 13 Jan, 2018 22:32
Last Edit: 13 Jan, 2018 22:36
English localization have 3 endings, original japanese have... 35. To reach different endings you need to play trough the game over and over. Yeah, you need to do it 35 times in japanese version to see everything ;p

Leaving memes aside, I love this game, mainly the music. It's just so good.
Also I just noticed the achievement for max weapon for both vulkan and homing have their names switched, the one for vulcan is called "Max Homing Unit" and the one for homing is called "Max Valcan Unit"
