But god forgive me for accidentally using an instrument here, or killing an enemy there or playing the game the way it was intended and getting locked out of a cheevo and having to play up to that point again for another shot at an achievement.
7 May 2021
This game is nothing like the original trilogy on the snes and I don't see the justification for boss fights to have cheevos based on if you got hit or not; seeing as most attack sporadically. Especially King K. Rool's dreadful 20 minute long fight.
7 May 2021
This achievement list could benefit from a good scrubbing, but in no ways by making it a more casual experience. After all everyone using this site is looking for a greater challenge.
7 May 2021
Just not challenges made by players who treat this game like a 2nd religion.
7 May 2021
Please forgive my long tangent.XD
7 May 2021
While most of these achievements aren't really that bad looking back, some of the missable ones are just too many for this kind of game. I feel like *only some* missables belong in a Bonus set. Not trying to piss anyone off, I'm grateful for the set,
7 May 2021
Nah, i don't share that critic. I really liked and enjoyed this set. Grab the 101% and watch out for the missable ones. Get every achievement is usual a little more tough at the end, so it was with Every-Coin- and NoDamage-Finalboss-Achievos.
26 May 2021
Finally beat that stupid Pufftoss battle without taking damage. Five freaking rounds of going in circles trying to hit rings and not get hit by a million fireballs... brilliant -_-
6 Jun 2021
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.
6 Jun 2021
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.
15 Jun 2021
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.
15 Jun 2021
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
6 Nov 2021
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 ......
27 Jan 2022
Mastered! :D
28 Jan 2022
Are any of these achievements missable?
29 Jan 2022
if an achievement is missable it is marked with an [m] inside the title name.
29 Jan 2022
OMG I have no idea how I [m]issed that LOL thanks for the answer! Congratz btw!
29 Jan 2022
Thank you. <3 :D
23 Apr 2022
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?
4 May 2022
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.
