I have played this game so many times over the years but level 3 difficulty final level still makes me want to tear my hair out.

It's pretty brutal. I've adjusted the "Shadow Dancer" achievement. It would previously only work in Non Shuriken mode... I think it's hard enough as is, so you have the option to do it in either mode now.

Seems the points are a little out of whack. Defeating the final boss on setting 3 without ninjitsu is only worth 10 points compared to beating the game on setting 3 being worth 50.

Generally there seems to be a point imbalance issue with some of the stuff on setting three compared to how hard it is to just clear setting 3 and what that is worth overall

That's fair. It's an easy thing to change, so no problem. I have fixed it up a bit, though I am open to suggestions/criticism on the values.

"Legendary Shinobi" ..... oh man, I was the one responsible for this achievement existing? @_@

Yes, I saw your comment and decided to implement it. Everyone send your anger towards Jungon when trying for this achievement, haha. As an aside, is "Shadow Dancer" too difficult? Or are people ok with this challenge? A lot of 700s...

Complete the game on level 3 difficulty without reaching 2 or less lives. Fix it, not working.

The "Savior" achievement is bugged. If you get the hidden life in stage 1-1 you can't get the achievement.

Can you change the Genin and Chuunin achievements so that if you beat the level on a higher difficulty you're awarded them as well?
