For more information and basic guides, please view the official forum topic. Thank you. We need to know the secret of the hieros combinations. I just know Extra Life is more than 2 of the same kind.

Second Player will not get the cheevos. :) To reset the game, simply press the SELECT Button after you lose a life.
Zaphnath 10 Dec 2018 01:09
Omnicide can also kill the Sphinx.
JMaio 10 Dec 2018 01:27
Nice work Zaphnath!

Can't seem to get "Walk the Falcon" or the 50 silver ingots achievements to trigger. Used omnicide on the sphinx after walking the whole level, but no unlock. You can obtain 5 silver ingots per level, but 20 levels in and still no unlock.

Walk The Falcon and 50 Silver Ingots were indeed broken. Now fix and working as intended.
