we need achievements on this masterpiece

Reviewed the existing unofficial set, promoted it, and added two leaderboards.

Nearly all achievements must be earned on the default hard difficulty. Exceptions: "Learn How to Play" and the 3 Easter eggs which can be earned on easy (setting 3).

Good set. Bad game.
Dogmeatman 12 Jan 2020 20:49
Pretty amazing game considering the hardware limitations and HSW was given only six weeks from design to delivery. If it wasnt for the annoyances of falling in the pits when you didnt want to, this would be among the greats of the 2600 games.

I don't disagree. Could have changed the course of history.

I just noticed the box art for the first time. Seeing it made my day. Please never change it.

Great set design, it teaches players how the game works.

Tips for dealing with pits: you fall when any part of your sprite overlaps with them. If you fall, press the button (without holding directions) while in the air to begin floating so that you don't lose too many points. You don't need to hold the button to float, you're free to move up or safely descend to get a phone piece. When you reach the top, start pressing left or right to avoid falling back down, and find a safe place to land.

misunderstood (and very unpolished) masterpiece
julienktl 25 Sep 2022 21:30
This is not a bad game but when I fall just after I have reached the top make me sad.
krehztim 26 Oct 2022 15:11
Mastered. I forgot what an absolute aggressive jackass the FBI agent is.

Achievements will not be given on Gamemode 3 (Easy Mode)
sseb22 21 Feb 2023 16:08
Trying the game again thanks to the RAguide but even not in mode 3, the achievements are not triggering or triggering randomly. Am I the only one in this case?
Dogmeatman 21 Feb 2023 16:20
They all triggered fine for me using game 1 in RALibretro
