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?
6 Apr 2021

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.
20 Jul 2021

There's likely little that can be done about the rank achievements getting skipped. The game immediately assigns you the highest rank you qualify for, so for all intents and purposes you never received those skipped ranks.
20 Aug 2021

Non-coder here, so excuse my ignorance, but couldn't the rank achievements track to the experience gained instead of rank title?
21 Aug 2021
1:59
You could, but since the game doesn't give you the title until you go to the Guru with the right amount of experience, it'd pop early.
