This game is absolutely awesome. I was introduced to it not too long ago. I would HIGHLY recommend save states to lower frustration until you get awesome at the game. The final stage's boss does NOT trigger the achieve correctly.

^ Rdannylor2 addressed the final achieve not triggering--ALL achievements work properly. Thanks for fixing it! Enjoy the game!

What a wild ride. D': Mastered. :3

I rode the tiger through the midnight sea. Glad to have finally mastered this absurdity that some call a "video game". Oh, don't you see what I mean?

The truth is that to be an extremely difficult game, it should give a minimum of 1500 points for passing this nightmare, plus the achievements they are asking for.
