Of course people that can do this will be against removing it. But the fact is, it is a glitch and shouldn't be here. Like lots of other achievements in another sets...

I don't know what rom you have, but I tested it and it works well. In my opinion this isn't a glitch, but a trick. You don't do anything else than position your character perfectly align and perform a good timing. Some times works and others don't, but it works as expected. In my experience some emulators didn't unlock it, but nothing that I didn't found in another games like original metroid with particular emulators that not recognize the achievements.
If developers in particular or retroachievements in general decide to delete it, I will agree with their decision.

Just remove...

I think if it was a "trick" then it wouldn't have been removed from some releases and left in others. Seems even nintendo would agree that it's a glitch. A famous one, but a glitch all the same. Shouldn't "missingno" be in the Pokemon Red/Blue main set then? Its just as famous.

Yeah. As I said before, check the VS version (arcade). It can't be done as they changed the enemies on those spots :) The arcade version was released after the console version.

I will not really say it is a glitch though. Probably more an exploit of an existing mechanic in the game. Not intended though, and that is the main thing.

I think this archievement has nothing to do with ACHIEVEMENTS in this game. In my opinion, achievements based on a GLITCH have NOTHING to look for here. I would think of another achievement instead of this one... Get the Fire Flower in World 1-1 and finish the game without Damage (No Warp allowed!!!)

It doesn't matter if it was a glitch, exploit or intended by the developers. Fact is that Nintendo officially acknowledged this trick because it is part of a challenge in their game NES Remix.
QRS666 31 Oct 2022 10:26
Hmm well, why would they not aknowledge it? It is a common trick and most people know of it or have heard about it. Also, as any company of course they use anything to create money or spread the word etc. Once again, they were not that keen of the trick in the arcade version. Why? Because they lose money if people do that. There they treated it as a bug/glitch instead etc. My point is just that regardless of what Nintendo said or if they aknowledge it or not, it does not make the arguments in this thread any different. For me personally, I do not mind if the cheevo is left as it is. Kind of fits both in a standard set or a bonus set.

This trick doesn't work for me. Tested 100 times

Why is this not available? I use Nestopia
mnavarro 12 Jan 2023 15:23
I suffered the same problem. Try another emulator and it will work.
TheRealBillHicks 12 Jan 2023 15:38
Check the "core compatibility" chart in "downloads" for a list of working cores. I suggest using mesen or fceumm for all NES games.
Manufacturer 12 Jan 2023 18:51
Okay, thank u both :)

é simplesmente inacreditavel essa conquista. Ter que fazer glitch para conseguir uma conquista é lamentavel, não funciona pra mim, não consigo. não da, passei o dia tentando e não da, não consigo sequer 1 up
Achievess 11 Feb 2023 23:46
Lol, I didn't know I was playing the Bonus Set

Everyone commenting on how this is a glitch, lol. The devs at Nintendo made sure this works. It was absolutely intended.
