needs to be updated to include all spots: At the current rate it's random and IDK where to go to collect them. There was a problem with certain boss achievements with this as well

The wing boots that triggered it for me are near the boss that guards the Battle Suit and the Magical Rod. The Hidden Glove is above this area, you can just barely see it behind a pillar. But you'll need Wing Boots to get it...

...because of an unjumpable gap in the floor.

As for the rank achievements (esp at the beginning ranks) it's easy to get 2 or 3 ranks on one huge spelunking outside of the town and come back to speak to the guru effectively missing some of the lower rank achievements.

I understand why Thundard did the = val instead of the >= rank due to save states and abusing passwords. I mean who's to say someone didn't have a legitimate password, but who's to say they did? It's just annoying to have to play the game again

to get those few pesky achievements that slipped through due to kicking some @$$. ^_^

Mind posting a video where the Hidden Gloves and Boots are? I have no clue on where those are

Any word on the locations of the Winged Boots and Glove? I'd really like to know where they are

Thundard, great work, great set. Very much enjoyed replaying this game. Thank you. 5*.

Once again, like NightmareJames asked, does anyone have a video or something of where to get the Hidden Glove and Wing Boots Achievement? Thanks!
25 Aug 2017

I found where the Hidden Glove is to get the Achievement. I'll record a video of where it is soon. I still need the location of the Hidden Wing Boots ...

Man, the hidden gloves were annoying. I cant make a video, but: head left out of daybreak. Go left 2 screens, down 1 screen. Its hidden behind a pillar. Head left 1 screen, use the boots to fly up, then right again. Voila!

Sucks when you miss Achievements for levels because you gain a couple levels at once. Really seems like something that should be fixed.

I do really love this game. Loved it since it was released. Played through it countless times and it never gets old.

The rank achievements still do not pop if you gain enough experience to pass more than one rank without speaking to a guru. Not sure if this is what the achievement programmers intended or not?

Gonna echo the comment complaint about ranks. It would be really nice not to miss some of those things because the experience you get jumps you up multiple ranks.
