Awesome set. I love the skeletons shield bashing sound effect. Hurts a lot.
Ramiro1992 28 Sep 2022 00:05
Mastered, I can't believe I've made it, my heart was pumping like crazy, made it with Gulius with 1 entire health bar remaining, took me a couple of days of intense practice but finally got it =)
SlyKornell 24 Jan 2023 22:53
Great set! Thanks!

Довольно хороший сет! Минимум духоты, максимум действия. LGW можно получить и проходя игру в кооперативе, так что зовите товарища и разносите будку Сумматору!

I had beaten the final boss without spending continues, but my internet connection had dropped while I was playing :( And then I had to do it all over again, and this time I actually achieved mastery!
IzaNamiZX 17 Sep 2023 04:11
Mastered! Dwarf man is definitely the best character: good dash attack, best jump attack, and can refill his magic quickly. Think of it like a fighting game; you want to go for hard knockdowns and then set up the next one. For bosses, you definitely want to practice landing the dash-and-jump attack, it does HUGE damage.

Mastered. Took 3 months to go from completing it to a 1CC - maybe 30 attempts.

Definitely found Tyris to be the best character for this thanks to her magic.

Learning downstabs are essential as is enemy placement so you can trick the AI into walking them into a pit or at least lining them up to easily be knocked it.

01garland01 on YouTube has some great tutorials for the game that teaches you enemy placement and how to stun lock bosses.

@supersharpy64 3 Months? wow, I made it with only 2 days of intense practice, I've finished it before but never 1 CC until I mastered this set
supersharpy64 2 Oct 2023 12:52
@Ramiro1992 unfortunately I don't get the opportunity to grind these days, I might get an hour at best, 2 or 3 times a week. I'd mastered several other games in that 3 months, I wasn't trying to just grind this one cheevo.

Mastered! Thanks for the great set. The one continue cheevo took some time but was really fun!
Gubila 11 Feb 2024 13:19
At the moment, "Legendary Golden Warrior" is the most difficult achievement I have mastered. Moreover, the difficulty lies not in killing the last boss, but in getting enough lives to kill him. In the end you get tired, lose concentration, and die in very stupid ways, not even reaching the boss. Although the boss is simple, if you don't let him use magic while knocking back the skeletons with a jumping blow. In total, I mastered all achievements in 11.5 hours.
BillyZard 20 Feb 2024 12:57
So many mastery runs lost at stage 7 by getting complacent. Thank you for the set! The 1CC was tough but I learned a lot and might consider speedrunning this in the future.

Mastered live on Twitch! @ retrounderbelly

punny mastered,all chevos are green light,no need revisions not yet xd
SegaJAM 10 Mar 2024 04:25
Mastered! After 3 years, I decided to finally get around to beating duel mode. Fortunately, it only took a single attempt to pop Legendary Golden Warrior. Completing Duel mode was trickier than 1cc'ing Arcade mode, in my opinion.

#12 - esse jogo é bom de mais, joguei muito na infância mas não conseguia zerar. A conquista de zerar no har sem continue foi a pior parte
CelestialBunny 4 May 2024 23:21
Softcore complete, final boss is tough but not impossible, just remove the skeletons then hit him on far left or right to get him down. Arcade version is arguably the harder of the two.
Nabas6545 13 May 2024 18:00
It's amazing that a 35 year old game still plays so well today. Not too difficult of a set, apart from completing the game without using a continue which can be troublesome if you get sloppy with the final boss.

I made a longplay video of my no continue run with Gilius if anyone wants to see how I approached it, which can be found at https://youtu.be/DITbMLsuvLk

I also made a short Game & Set review video which can be watched at https://youtu.be/f2ULegLtw1U
