This game has serious issues on this particular emulator. Managed to get a soft lock on stage 5. I would recommend proceeding with save states only. I have played this game on a few other emulators a lot--have never managed to softlock like this.

It would be nice to see "Beat the game without continues" achievement here. Please add it someone.
u can also add:
"reach 7hp bars"
"reach 250 mana"
"no damage" 1st, 2nd. 3rd and 6th (1st form) bosses (few points each)
and beating 4th, 5th bosses without losing a life (few more points).

And mb it is possible to protect the game vs cheating

So the set that's up is worth 170 points. Been working on this to try and boost it a bit.

10 - Obtain the Bracelet
10 - Obtain the Jump Boots (I submitted this one, actually)
10 - Obtain the Cape of Protection
10 - Obtain Dragon Carving
10 - Obtain the Wizard's Staff
30 - Max Mana
30 - Max Life

That'd be 280 points.

As for 333's suggestions:

10 - Beat the 1st boss without taking damage
10 - Beat the 2nd boss without taking damage
10 - Beat the 3rd boss without taking damage
20 - Beat the 4th boss without losing a life
20 - Beat the 5th boss without losing a life
10 - Beat the 6th boss without taking damage
40 - Beat the game without using continues

That'd put it at 400 points.

I'll work on these soon, hopefully. Any other suggestions?

Yo guys!
First of all - thank you for the set :D
I wanna ask you to add "Stage 4 - Extra Life" achievement
and, mb, 'White Cat' - Have 9 lives achievement (I mean gather lives until u have 9 of them, without codes)
('WhiteHat94' is a speedrunner, who beat this game in 17 minutes without a single death)
