"I Have My Arms But I Must Scream" works and you're allowed to die. "Enemy Behind The Gates" also works now.

No offense, but some of these 'new' achievements are really tedious. The whole game without crouching, even in stages 2&4 ? 'You have to jump and shoot before you land' ? Oo Seriously ? If anyone finds that it's a fun way to play the game, OK then.

I didn't find it to be too hard. I enjoyed it cuz I had to break my habit. And you have plenty of lives to do it

hehe, I agree 100% with you, except for the 'enjoy' part. ;-) Anyway, nice job to the one who makes these achievements, it must be a lot of time/work to create them.

10/10 for originality, 1/10 for stupidly high level of difficulty of some of the achievements, even on softcore mode.

Man this one was a real challenge especially if youre using x360 joystick cuz d pad sucks. Another thing I realized is that this game is easier on m/k.

Mastered! This and Castlevania 3 are Retro Gaming Heaven to me. Farming with the M-Shooter 1-Ups at the Stage 4 Boss (Falling Guys) can help with some Challenges.
