Lord Jair isn't all that difficult really, it's just a matter of knowing what you need and what you don't
ReeseKaine 29 Aug 2020 22:04
I'm guessing every "miss" counts as an action? There have been times when I try to pick up a torch or a key, or the scepter and I happen to be off-center.
WilHiteWarrior 29 Aug 2020 22:41
Actually no, "You can't take it!" will not subtract from your torch strength
ReeseKaine 30 Aug 2020 00:33
One last question on actions: Looking and moving between rooms: Do those count?
WilHiteWarrior 30 Aug 2020 00:34
Yes those do
Olafur 31 Aug 2020 21:55
Man I have no idea what I'm supposed to do about this ghost of Sam Kinison one. I've looked at a few videos, but have absolutely no idea, damn XD
WilHiteWarrior 16 Sep 2020 16:10
lol the ghost of sam kinison one is to release the banshee in the crypt room
ReeseKaine 16 Sep 2020 16:29
A great deal of the chevos can be acquired thru simple curiosity.

Mastered! Super fun set and some great music
Dogmeatman 10 Jan 2023 21:20
Great set, thanks. Really enjoyed this one. Had to think about a few of the achievements but got there in the end :)
terminaldragon 21 Mar 2023 18:29
my first mastery
JebDogg 25 May 2023 14:17
Also my first Mastery :D
Cadex 16 Jun 2023 13:39
Perfectly crafted set, IMHO. Squeezes every last bit of fun out of the game without overstaying its welcome.
PremiumBacon 9 Oct 2023 10:00
Can you please add the achievement for closing all the doors behind you? Something along the lines of "Were you born in a tent?" Something a lot of you may of heard as a kid
pfontaine147 25 Nov 2023 01:27
My first Mastery! Loved this game as a kid. Took a lot of trial and error, but the game does give clues how to solve certain puzzles. Very satisfying and enjoyable to return and play through to completion with the added challenges.
Xerenogan 15 Jan 2024 18:17
That was fun. Took me an embarrassing amount of time to figure out that last death... or a number of things for that matter. So that's the nes version eh? Very cool. Thanks for the set.

Great game and a very thorough set. Thank you, it was a blast!
thatoneguy1851 9 Mar 2024 09:42
Mastery #161. Shadowgate is awesome, and this set is more challenging than the original GBC run I did before. Had to plan and pan out my moves carefully, but I got it.
