The last one, it's impossible, who unlock him it's a really badass!!!
HippopotamusRex 28 Dec 2016 09:36
Zoda has a weakness when he's 1 diagonal away since he can't attack diagonally. He has to come to the adjacent square, in which you go diagonal again. As long as you have a 2x2 and control it well it's not too bad.

Chapter 3 Mountain Tunnel Screen 4 is pure fuck. I hate it and dont working with my Hori Pad. 1000times and everytime i die.
MasterSwordUltima 26 Feb 2017 17:47
Some reason I can't get Search and Destroy to pop for me. Any reason for that? Is there another hidden Minie somewhere that I'm not aware of? (Besides the one that leads to the healing room just before the Maxie fight).
Lava303 27 Feb 2017 21:32
After you have defeat the big ghost, you must go in left room and there you can find the last mini ghost.
MasterSwordUltima 28 Feb 2017 06:15
Oh my god, that was it. I can't thank you enough.

"Watch your step" was ridic. I think that was luck.
SYKEKO 31 Jan 2021 17:22
Such a great game, each world has something new.
groff16 31 Jan 2021 18:31
One of the greatest I have ever played ...
ChronoGear 7 Feb 2021 00:33
Mastered! Underrated game, definitely worth playing
CristianNicolai 24 Jul 2021 03:40
Mastered, thx for the set.
BloodiestCODY 29 May 2022 19:22
being able to find rom that works with both Retro Arch and This site is a pain...
groff16 14 Jul 2022 03:47
Try using USA(Roms) it works most of the time. But another thing you can try is switching to different cores as well.
Deansrule 3 Nov 2022 19:40
Mastered! So many great memories of this growing up, calling NiN power for the code to the sub because of no manual lol.
***Warning*** don't keep hitting Zoda at the end once he's beat, this will skip the final scene and the cheevos won't pop. I found this out the hard way and had to beat him twice! Good luck folks, I'm off to play the sequel.

First timer, loved it! and the set: cheff kiss! thanks for the fun set PhilInTheBlanks! 11:44 playtime. Hardest cheevo for me: Watch Your Step. Galactic Domination was surprisingly easy. Heading for Zoda's Revenge now :D RUN, RUN! HURRY, HURRY!
PranHunter 17 Nov 2023 02:27
After 8 years, finally mastered, of course I gave up and didn't play for a long time, I felt the urge to play and finish this work of art that is so important in my life,
Thanks for all the tips, thanks to the user HippopotamusRex, and the YouTube channel Grahamtams, they helped me a lot!
Thank you Startropics and its creators for existing!

First Master! Loved this game as a kid
jimstrom 4 Feb 2024 16:43
I seem to have some trouble with the "Watch your step" achievement. I've tried the blaster strategy, but i can't get the speed down, and Osteroid is jumping forward and crushing me instead. I play on the EUropeean ROM. ANyone who have any advice or tips for this acheivement?
