Platinado família, difícil é pouco pra esse daqui, quase fiquei careca terminando esse set.

I did a Recording of the Dracula Fight Whip only No Damage. Easy Fight cuz the Pattern is always the Same and this could be a Cheevo for this Classic Gem. This Set is too easy for a CV Game.

Mastered. Some achievements were way too challenging. I guess it fits this game, though. Great set.
MrDynamite 25 Feb 2024 17:07
Mastered after 3 Years, because I paused it because of the Thunderstruck achievement, now it's done. ^^ There were a couple of nice challenges, especially the one for Alucard, but the only thing that was really hard besides Thunderstruck was the entire hard mode.
