Impressive list! I think I will keep in mind the current 25 retro ratio :-)

One problem with this game and getting HC achievements is this game is designed for the arcade and to be always on. Item appearance is based on behavior or your actions from previous games, so it's going to be harder if you reset the game.
RAtards 3 Feb 2017 15:32
Many of the achievements you can get by continuing, and also using passwords without being reset. unless it says otherwise you're good to go.
WampaCow 8 Feb 2017 07:00
I didn't find the current set of 75 to be overly difficult. There are some hard ones in there (100 drops without dying, red grumple without dying, 75 enemies without dying after lvl 57, glutton of caviar), but overall, I think it's a good set.
WampaCow 8 Feb 2017 07:01
For the coop achievements, Bubble Bobble is programmed to require coop for the happy endings. I think ignoring this in the achievements would do the game a disservice.
HippopotamusRex 26 Jun 2017 10:15
You can avoid the co-op by putting in the password for the final boss and then using 2 players in that one room. Once you get those endings you can just play the rest on 1 player

Thank you for this challening set Salsa, mourinhosgum and UNHchabo :)

Super fun set. Check the harder cheevos' pages for advice. 'O Baron, Where Art Thou?' was the only cheevo that needed attention, but JAM seems to have sorted things out. Thanks devs!

This game reminds me of a fish tank in a resturant, while you are eating that is going on in the backgorund.
