Why no achievement for advanced difficulty?
soulrider25 20 Nov 2016 05:21
I normally don't like beat 'em ups but this game is so wacky and fun!
Rimitto 3 Dec 2016 19:53
because advanced difficulty only changes the groups you fight and can be modified at any point in time in the game. There would be no logical, feasible, or reasonable reason to make or attempt to make such an achievement.

I would like to suggest a cheevo: type a password correctly. :-)
JagOfTroy 23 Aug 2017 15:34
Having issues with Rocko's achievement currently. I wait for the dialogue and the coin to spawn but hasn't been working.
JagOfTroy 25 Aug 2017 17:05
I noticed I had problems getting the boss achievements to pop if I was on Advanced. I switched to Novice and boom, it worked.
twin0mega 1 Sep 2017 10:27
Boss achievements aren't working for me. Just finished the game on novice. Only got a couple boss achievements. Seems somethings wrong with it. And yes, I waited for he coin to drop and I collected it.
JagOfTroy 1 Sep 2017 14:44
I just did this recently. They were working fine once I changed the difficulty. Not sure besides that how to get it working properly but it does. I think it has something to do with the spec. amount you get when you pick up the coin from the boss.
twin0mega 5 Sep 2017 00:25
(part1) Here's how I got it working. Started out in Advanced, switched to Novice in-game (not sure this part matters). But here's where I got it working. I waited till the bosses finished their speech entirely before attacking.
twin0mega 5 Sep 2017 00:26
(part2) After I killed them, I let the coin sit and bounce for a bit...then the achievement popped up. Then I collected the coin. Seems to work on all bosses.
JagOfTroy 5 Sep 2017 02:37
Yea, that's pretty much what I did too.
Eringobrad 10 Jan 2018 15:14
Unlocked all the achievements but jujutsu master. I know in general what you're supposed to do but can't pull it off! Is my timing off or is there something I'm missing here?
shotobro 8 May 2018 11:16
is there a trick to hitting an enemy 200 times without them dying? Do i need to have horrible stats and attempt to beat on a boss that blocks all my moves or something? Thanks for any help
GyroWolfX 22 Jul 2019 15:13
I got a guy in the corner, I started hitting him repeatedly with a pipe or wood stick whatever it is, no achievement. I thought okay well maybe I can't use a weapon so I start using my fists no achievement. How do you do those achievements
meleu 25 Sep 2019 18:58
yo! I forgot televandalist worked on a revision for this game! let's play it!

<3 this game.
RetroDave82 17 Apr 2020 19:59
this game makes me want to go back and change all my previous 5-star ratings to 4
NeoRizer 16 Nov 2020 07:41
This achievement is really dumb and super glitched out. I just put in the pass and ran through the entire game never getting hit, never entering a shop... mind you I was save state scumming, the only thing I accidentally did was do the Jujitsu move.
