The original game on the Genesis, miles better than that "thunder spirits" crap on the SNES.
kronoschiarini 9 Mar 2017 08:53
me either didn't count the 600.000 score achievement
kronoschiarini 12 Mar 2017 08:00
It's very frustrating didn't complete this game because a broken achievement :(
kronoschiarini 12 Mar 2017 08:44
The really problem is the leatherboard and the score counter

600,000 is just an odd number to make an achievement for, since all game mem reads in hex=ffff/655350. I suggest it should have been a lower value like 500x; it can either be demoted or just remain as is with the 30 other players who have earned it.

Hey all, I'm getting the "beat boss with only twinshot/no specials" despite using other weapons. Anybody else getting this ?
ZBR 17 Apr 2018 03:14
Leaderboard is broken. The score does not apply if you beat the game.
EudesSoares 8 Dec 2018 15:29
I had the same problem of twin shoot achievement
yopadato 30 Dec 2018 03:47
Many broken cheevos, for example I got "Guardian" and "Cerberus" at the same time, just after beating Guardian. I got "Gargoyle" several minutes after his death...
Amnius 30 Nov 2019 10:19
I reset after beating normal and set the difficulty to mania, which gave me the cheevo "real hero". Now I need to beat mania to have actually earned it...

good game
Englishmadnesss 10 May 2023 16:25
I prefer this to Thunderforce 4 I think.
Rudi666bit 10 Feb 2024 21:43
I somehow misunderstood the cheevos and instead of beating only the bosses, I beated the last 3 whole levels with the twin shots whitout specials xD Love this game!!!
guiretrogamer 12 Apr 2024 17:47

Evilchipmunk866 17 Apr 2024 15:24
