I think its perfect fair. Missable achievements are normal even in modern console games. And as for the achievements being "made by an expert for themselves", id say i hope so. Thats what I'd expect.
TheRealBillHicks 6 Jun 2021 22:50
I think its inherently the point of achievements is that you have to "achieve" something to earn them. Sometimes that's grinding, sometimes it's finding well hidden secrets.
RossWyatt 15 Jun 2021 14:23
I have to agree with IIStickyII. The one thing I dislike about achievements is the mindset that comes along with it that every achievement must be this insane feat that takes hours of practice to achieve. New games have better saves to go back, too.
RossWyatt 15 Jun 2021 14:27
Everyone else was voicing their differentiating opinions, so why not me too, lol. Though if you look at the Spyro sets on here, those are perfectly fair and acceptable I think. With so many devs, not everyone is gonna be happy. Just a fact
GoddessBow 6 Nov 2021 13:46
this set is ridiculous, you need to be some kinda gaming jesus to master this one..... and that's coming from someone that mastered Metroid Fusion...... i'm considering viping my achievements coz this is gona be one of those games i can't master ......
xTr4ceur 27 Jan 2022 18:57
Mastered! :D
BonesTOS 28 Jan 2022 22:46
Are any of these achievements missable?
xTr4ceur 29 Jan 2022 00:07
if an achievement is missable it is marked with an [m] inside the title name.
BonesTOS 29 Jan 2022 00:30
OMG I have no idea how I [m]issed that LOL thanks for the answer! Congratz btw!
xTr4ceur 29 Jan 2022 09:29
Thank you. <3 :D
LockDown2341 23 Apr 2022 07:11
Yeah this list is gross. Just by looking at it, most of them belong in some sort of bonus set, not a core set. Maybe someone could revise it? Move some of these to a bonus set and make some core ones that aren't ridiculous?
HayatoVJ 4 May 2022 13:51
I have the original cartridge from 1999 and could never finish it. It is the only game in the series that exhausted me. However, with the achievements I give it a new opportunity, but it still seems like the worst DK in the series. Thanks to the achievements I have discovered new things that I did not know, but the DK arcade and the "Bonus Stage" still seem horrible to me. Thans for the set.
PumaZ3TA 16 Oct 2022 09:13
I finally got closure to this games, since it has been one of my oldest backlogs ever. Never managed to finish this game as a kid, and sold it along the console as a teenager, because I’m an idiot. Now I finished it and found inner peace. I’m not gonna master it tho, some achievements are insane.
Jonny8567 3 Nov 2022 17:27
Mastered! I honestly didn't think I had it in me to complete this whole set, but damn, it feels satisfying to be done. Overall, most achievements in this set aren't too difficult, but there are some here that will really push you to the limit. Damageless bosses can be frustrating, all banana coins is a major grind if you miss some, 30K points on the DK Arcade is a nightmare if you suck at it like I do lmao. And damageless K.Rool is just... insane.
Poefred 5 Nov 2022 17:11
Just got this as my first master! I was a little nervous going in with all the missables but it really wasn't so bad at all. Great set that makes the most of the whole game. Nice to have some goals to reach for certain things that didn't really matter before, like DK high score and coins. And the extra challenge on the bosses gave them much more of a presence instead of going by so fast.
TanukiJuke 13 Jan 2023 09:16
I am glad it is over and I never have to play this game again.
Cavi3D 13 Jan 2023 20:03
Is anyone else having issues with Tiny's Ponytail Twirl ability?

I cannot make the jump to the bonus stage at the top of Frantic Factory, or the bonus in the lobby of Angry Aztec.

I see videos of other people doing it. They seem to be going through the air so much faster than mine.

Am I missing something? Is there an upgrade for it later I am unaware of? Is this an emulator/rom issue? Very confused.
Poefred 13 Jan 2023 20:30
There's nothing extra about it, once you have it that's as good as it gets. Could maybe be a controller sensitivity issue, otherwise not sure.
Cavi3D 13 Jan 2023 22:36
Ayyyyy that did the trick! Upped my analog sensitivity to 3x and I made both jumps!

Thank you @Poefred for the suggestion! Saved my playthrough haha
Poefred 31 Jan 2023 19:44
Glad that worked :D
