It doesn't save? You sure about that? this is one of the earliest NES games to have a save feature that wasn't password based. You just go talk to the king when it's time to save your game.

The easiest way to get the chevos for the princess is to drop a save state right before you go to Charlock to fight the dragon lord, assuming your not in hardcore mode. Then you can pull off all of the princess related chevos on one game save.

Yes there is saving, only it doesn't save upon beating the game, so you can kill him over and over -- however you can't grab the princess more than once, so you have to plan that out. (And Hardcore for life!)

Clearing the game in softcore mode and then loading a save in hardcore unlocks the majority of achievements (which happened to me unexpectedly...)I think this should be patched out...

It'd be nice if the appearance rate of the Death Necktie wasn't monumentally-low.

Be sure you are using an emulator compatible with these achievements. I don't think the ROM itself has anything to do with it.

Replying to a previous post, the game will not save once you reach level 30. So if you're grinding, be sure to plan out your approach. Use Gwaelin's Love to check while in the field.

If you're playing on Hardcore, definitely tackle the Death Necklace once you hit level 7 or 8. I did it just now, and in the process, gained 5 levels and 15k gold, haha. Cuts into some of the later grinding at least.
