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.

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 ?

Leaderboard is broken. The score does not apply if you beat the game.

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...

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...
