A new achievement will be chosen each week as "Achievement of the Week."

Some will be set for obscure and underplayed games; while in other weeks, the challenge will be the hardest goal in that game's entire achievement set. If you can get the achievement:
You win 1 point towards the "Just For Fun" leaderboard, 2 points for earning it on hardcore mode!
(Note: You must earn it in the current week to get the point)

Scott: "Can I add - if you already have this achievement and want to enter the competition, please visit your settings page ( and remove the achievement from your account first. You will find the option to remove individual achievements from your account under "reset game progress", first pick the game, then the achievement. This will allow you to re-earn the achievement this week! Good luck all!"

I Can Track Timestamps for When You Earned Things, so I'm not awarding points that were unlocked way before or way after

I just got the Home Sweet Home achievement from The Lost Vikings in Hardcore mode!

Posted: 13 Aug, 2015 10:13
Cool that one of my achievements gets to be Achievement of the Month. :D

Good luck guys, it's an extremely hard boss.

Posted: 15 Aug, 2015 14:45
@SirVG, easiest boss ever, you can hit him with OHKO attacks like Death, and earthquake (my Kaine killed him with able's Lance with proced Tornado)
xD but only if you know such things

The new achievement of the week doesn't have a new topic.

Anyway: I earned "A Trick Up My Hat" for "Duck Tales 2" on NES in hardcore mode.

Posted: 19 Aug, 2015 00:03
Ill be making it tonight

Posted: 19 Aug, 2015 01:00
Well, Ducktales 2 was a fun little romp... though I suspect the bad ending will be a good deal tougher...

Posted: 19 Aug, 2015 01:10
For the bad ending it's not that tough you just have to plan everything ahead, to end each level with 0$ (By dying before the boss if having any money) and to plan how to use the money won from the treasures. So 5 treasures means 5 millions wich could be done by buying 1 continue(500 000), dying, continue, buy another one (500 000) and which leaves 4 millions that you can spend in buying 5 1-ups (800 000 x 5).

For the good ending, you have to gather the map which is difficult if you don't know where to look for the pieces.

Posted: 19 Aug, 2015 01:40
Yeah, you were right amine. Once I had a plan (supplied by YT), it was simple! And thus another game is Mastered!

Posted: 20 Aug, 2015 03:56

i had to do this week's... it reminded me of when AotW's very first started and I believe the second one ever made was to get the good ending on ducktales 1. and that was kinda my first anyway, since the only one before that was the kirby one that I easily got in a day, the first day i joined RA, on a sunday, so yea... recent-nostalgia
