Have funny
18 Jan 9:56 2014
welllllll done

The original game on the Genesis, miles better than that "thunder spirits" crap on the SNES.

Okay, I beat the game, and then changed to Mania just to see the mess, and voila, I "beat the game on Mania" ... is that right? Instead of this achievement I should have the Pro Score with my 1.202.910 that didn't count.
9 Mar 8:53 2017
me either didn't count the 600.000 score achievement
12 Mar 8:00 2017
It's very frustrating didn't complete this game because a broken achievement :(
12 Mar 8:44 2017
The really problem is the leatherboard and the score counter
14 Mar 8:38 2017
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 ?
17 Apr 3:14 2018
Leaderboard is broken. The score does not apply if you beat the game.
8 Dec 15:29 2018
I had the same problem of twin shoot achievement
30 Dec 3:47 2018
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...
30 Nov 10:19 2019
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...
