I'm starting to feel like a lot of people haven't played it somehow. Definitely one of the best GBA games out there! I suppose it did come out almost one and a half years after the DS though.
GameDragon 8 Dec 2016 06:16
This was one of my favorite GBA games. It's a shame not too many people know about it. I never got a chance to try Hard Mode last time I played this, but doing it now.. wow. It can be relentless at times.
MGNS8M 8 Dec 2016 16:07
I agree, it's like a completely different game! I kinda wish you could start on Hard Mode immediately. It turns damage-tanking levels into almost puzzle-levels. I don't think I bothered to play Hard Mode myself back in the day either.
coczero 18 Dec 2016 14:17
The controls in this bad suck badly. There are some techniques that I can just never pull off.
MGNS8M 21 Dec 2016 03:18
Hmm, I guess I just got used to them. To me, they're extremely responsive, but I do think the heavy-weight of her tank makes it hard to move well sometimes. It's a much slower-paced game.
GameDragon 21 Dec 2016 05:52
That's actually the first time I've heard anyone say that about the controls. I find that they're pretty intuitive.
BarronCos 20 Sep 2018 09:39
What a great game!
OmegaVideoGameGod 5 Aug 2019 20:50
It's a fun game. :D
JMaio 19 Apr 2020 09:40
Nice game and nice set!
SevaanSevant 10 May 2020 23:34
Mastered! This game was an absolute blast to 100%. Hard mode had some difficult moments, but it was so satisfying to pull off every single achievement in it. Thank you very much for making them, MGNS8M.(Also, this game took me 31 hours to 100%!)
MatheusBrazuca85 11 Jun 2020 01:52
I'm stuck on the final stage in hard mode ( a whole new game, sad Terraria didn't make master mode like that ), but this game is great.
OmegaVideoGameGod 17 Aug 2020 05:36
Agreed, this game was very interesting for a handheld game. :D
Themooncow 2 Apr 2021 02:45
I want to master this game so much, but i got stuck in the weather boss ,_,)

No clue how to enter Hard Mode
SevaanSevant 26 Apr 2021 23:26
It's rather convoluted, if I recall correctly. You're going to have to look up how to enter Hard mode.
GyroWolfX 27 Apr 2021 11:25
I did, even did the combination in every way i can think to see if I did it right but none of them changed the border file or turned it into hard mode so unless there's some requirement to even be allowed to have Hard Mode it doesn't work
SevaanSevant 3 May 2021 03:33
Okay, I replayed the game on my phone (still fun), and I can confirm that all you need to do for hard mode is beat the game, get the Mega Bit, enter the code for the Master Seal in the tutorial area (after entering the level 3 unlock code)...
SevaanSevant 3 May 2021 03:36
And finally press L and R simultaneously and then Start on an empty save file. 100% completion is not necessary. The codes can be found on Gamefaqs or other sites.

Mastered! Amazing game. Amazing set, the best set on RetroAchievements. Thanks!
