I disagree BMac... these challenges are definitely in the better half of the ones I've seen in my long time here. That last no-hit was a beast though...
25 Oct 4:51 2018
For me is the best achievement set comparing to all others collectatons from the N64, is the one that have the most fun and original ones and also you don't unlock a cheevo every 5mins, that's a good point for me
17 Nov 19:49 2018
BMac its a challenge and completion set, if you wanna play for fun do that
28 Dec 22:04 2018
I agree with BMac, there are achievements and then there's just stupid shit like this. But hey, if you guys like wasting your time go for it
19 Feb 1:25 2019
Maan i was playing on file number 2 so i think a lot of achievements didnt trigger because of that. damn me.
31 Mar 20:05 2019
I'm also playing on file 2 and everything is triggering just fine.
3 Apr 18:35 2019
Do I need the pal or usa rom for the achievements to work
4 Apr 2:12 2019
USA
22 May 1:33 2019
i forgot to gives those blueprints to that dude so it is why i wasnt getting those 100% level achievements XD
9 Jul 22:20 2019
The missables one are really bad huh
1 Aug 11:49 2019
Some of these achievements are just ridiculous, who came up with these?
10 Jan 21:07 2020
This set should be revised or redone, imo!
12 Feb 6:35 2020
oof these achievements. most people have no way of getting some of these due to stupid secrecy. move some of these to a bonus set at least!
14 Mar 14:26 2020
it's really weird that the bossfight cheevos (without taking damage) have the same amount of points as the ones where you just need the bosskey. Damageless should give 15 or 20 points imo
11 Apr 3:38 2020
I think its fair that they give the same amount of points as you can replay them as many times as needed after you get the fairies, so there is no really skill or difficulty as you can just re try easily.
11 Apr 3:45 2020
Also, no achievment so far uses bugs of the game... so do not get discouraged, only the Savana one relies slightly in RNG
30 May 21:35 2020
Sounds like a good main set for a pretty underrated and hated N64 game in comparison to others made by Rareware. Gotta try this someday BUT as long as the game has the memory leak problem, game might freezes at Fungi Forest or Creepy Castle...
29 Jun 20:54 2020
While I am working on the 101%, does anyone know if you can get the normal ending achievement at the same time as the 101% or do i need to just save before the final boss and redo it with all the golden bananas?
29 Jun 20:57 2020
Normal ending always comes first before secret ending, so I suppose that only the 101% run is enough.
2 Jul 23:05 2020
I unlocked both at the same time. You can check my profile, the difference should be only the minutes it takes to start the secret one.
