*Missable achievements (Achievements with a star on the end), see first post of forum for details.

Okay, so I just unlocked a bunch of achievements randomly without earning them. Including the complete photo album, all 26 secret shells and the upgrades to arrows and bombs. All I did was visit the camera place before going into the Mobgoblin cave

I got the "Tower Organ" achievement when I knocked the final pillar down, instead of beating the boss and picking the instrument up.

Best Zelda game <3
19 Apr 18:28 2019
Got all the achievements now, great game! Can't wait for the Switch remaster haha
19 Apr 18:29 2019
BTW used latest retroarch with the Gearboy core, everything was smooth
25 Aug 18:42 2019
I really dislike the preoccupation with the Zelda sets to defeat all the bosses without losing hearts. Because when everyone plays 2D Zelda, they obviously play it for the deep engrossing combat, not the exploration and puzzles.
25 Aug 18:43 2019
This particular one is worse because you're not allowed to use savestates, even when not on hardcore mode, because then the achievement won't pop. Like, the whole point of having hardcore mode or not is to make the choice available
25 Aug 18:52 2019
A good set showcases the strengths of the gameplay, not the weaknesses. When a large portion of a set is based on combat that's widely considered lackluster by fans, those flaws are magnified and it's game-ruining.
25 Aug 20:50 2019
The combat is not flawed. You have to learn the boss fights (boss attack patterns & which items to use) and most of them can be consistently done without damage once you do.

sadly that look dont working with the french version of the game.
1 Sep 23:03 2019
Yes i'm sad me too, not french version :( do you think the old game zelda link awakening no DX in grey version working in french european version ??
27 Sep 19:32 2019
Agregaran el set de logros a la versin en espaol del parche de Lukas&cue? Es que la versin que est ah no hay forma de conseguirla ...

I was trying to give No Damage to the first boss and collect the music instrument, and none of those achievements came. The ones I received were the upgrade on bombs and arrows (which happened before activating alone for me).

Mastered!
17 Jun 1:29 2020
What these [m] are supposed to mean?
17 Jun 1:34 2020
It means "missable", for example if you get hurt by a boss you can't fight it again without reloading a save. If you save afterwards, you have to restart the whole game. Missable.
17 Jun 1:41 2020
We used to have an asterisk instead, but despite my preferences this method became the norm.
17 Jun 2:34 2020
I personally prefer the [m], easier to ctrl+f for me personally.
