I'd like to try to make an achievement set for this game. It would be my first set though, so don't get your hopes up too high.

I just discovered RA a few days ago, and it felt like coming home. So happy it exists! W&W was, I think, the first NES game I bought after SMB/Duck Hunt, and I played the living stuffing out of it.

I plan to follow the template set development roadmap. Actual development will probably take time, since the code notes for the game are incomplete, and I am by no means a master of the game itself. Will certainly need and appreciate help with making special game saves for memory investigation. Also, though I am a professional software engineer, I'm new to RA development.

I feel confident in taking this on myself, but if you want to collaborate, let me know. I have the same user name on Discord.

Without further ado, here's the preliminary list of cheeves that I have in mind (EDITED):

Progression/Exploration:
- Find all keys in Forest of Elrond 1
- Find all keys in the Ice Caves
- Find both keys in the Fire Caverns
- Find all keys in the Purple Caves

- Find all keys in Inner Castle 1
- Find both keys in Inner Castle 2

- Beat the Demon Skull in Forest of Elrond 1

- Beat Rock Face of the Fire Caverns

- Find all treasure chests in Forest of Elrond 2

- Beat the game without obtaining any temporary items

- Get the Boots of Force in Forest of Elrond 1 and then keep them on until you beat Malkil.

Special and random ideas:
- Beat the Demon Skull (1st boss) while crouched
- Survive a very very long fall. (Game has no fall damage, so just for fun)
- Break open a chest containing the Boots of Force, using the Boots of Force
- Kill a Red Werewolf after it throws a projectile (Gives much higher score, a bit difficult)
- Have the dagger or axe in the air for at least X seconds.
- Kill an enemy with a dagger or axe after it's been in the air for X seconds.
- Kill three enemies with a single dagger or axe
- Rescue a maiden while invisible
- Complete Forest of Elrond 1 without collecting any keys
- Complete Forest of Elrond 2 with only the Blue Key
- Beat Malkil with only one health bar remaining

Glitchy/Grindy (maybe for bonus set):
- Max out your gems at 999
- Kill the souls of a boss so quickly that no treasure appears, and your adventure comes to an early end.
- Glitch back to the first part of the Forest of Elrond from the second.
- Glitch back to the first part of the Forest of Elrond from the second, then keep playing to finish the game in the Fire Caverns.
- Beat the game a second time in one sitting, improving your previous score.

Leaderboards:
- Highest score for completed game
- Highest score for incomplete game (died before beating Malkil)
- Shortest time for completed game (not sure how to code yet)
- Shortest time for each stage?

Short update. Development is coming along well. I've coded 30+ cheevos, and have a clear plan for ~15 more. Not sure yet how to do "Hidden Treasure" and "All Chests".

Update again. Very close to finishing. All cheeves above, except for "hidden treasure" and about half of the special/random ones, are coded and have badges.
