OMG this game is so bad. Not the achievements, just this game version.

Jogo Imundo
25 Aug 20:42 2016
well sb should fix that score leaderboard already!
27 Jan 6:29 2017
Na memria era um jogo bem melhor sim haha mas bora buscar os achievments
28 Feb 14:36 2017
Wow, don't pass the score you want for the achieve, it won't pop. Happened twice to me, went from 690k to 800k after a boss and didn't get 700k achieve. Went from 970k to rollover 1800 at the end of a level and didn't get 990k achieve. :(

Same thing happened to me valkyrov... super disappointed. I just the 990000 by finishing a stage (not involving a boss in my case) and it didn't pop.

1942 the game is hard
17 Oct 14:47 2017
So do anyone know exactly how to trigger than 100000 point bonus you sometimes get after a boss? I can't find any info on it anywhere.
18 Oct 0:27 2017
Man, that Swat Kats achievement is TOUGH. Extremely satisfying to finally get it. Excellent game.
20 Apr 16:08 2018
I have the 100000 point bonus on the 2nd boss.I don t know how:)yeah it seem hard to get 9 lives gg to you:)
21 Apr 22:06 2018
Really nice game!Thanks for the achievements
12 Jul 20:50 2018
The game needs a "Finished the game" achievement.
22 Oct 21:36 2018
Indeed it is a little weird to "master" the set without needing to actually beat the game.

Spended hours in my childhood playing this trash
10 May 9:36 2019
Had the same issue as RideTheSkies and valkyrov. I'm gonna just leave it like that. Bogus.
