[EDITED BY meleu]

Here's how to get the ROM and support the game developers:
- go to https://store.steampowered.com/app/1065020/Micro_Mages/
- buy the game and install it (it's not expensive at all!!!)
- once the game is intalled, right-click the game in your Steam library, click Properties/Local Files/Browse Local Files... You'll see the ROM file

For those using Linux, as the game is registered as "Windows only" on steam, you normally won't be able to install the game. Here's I managed to get it done:

- launch the steam application.
- on the top menu go to: Steam > Settings > Steam Play
- mark the checkbox "Enable Steam Play for all titles" and click OK
- restart Steam
- now you're able to "Install" Micro Mages on Linux as you were on Windows

On my system, the ROM was placed in /home/USERNAME/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Micro Mages/ROM/Micro Mages.nes

Little bit more information on the game.

The game is comprised of 4 towers each with 3 sections and a boss at the end of the third section, with the exception of tower 4, it has 4 sections and 2 bosses. At the end of the fourth tower you play them all again but at a more challenging difficulty, this is indicated by a skull next to the section number, we can call that 💀 mode. There are 4 artifacts scattered throughout the towers, if you collect all 4 artifacts and complete 💀 mode you will be rewarded with a code to play Hell mode. Hell mode consists of the 4 towers at an even harder difficulty than hard mode. "Completing the Game" consists of beating normal and 💀 mode, Hell mode requires a special password to.

The gameplay is pretty basic. You have 1 HP so any hit will kill you. You can shoot single shots that do 2 damage or charge up your shot and do 6 damage. You player can slide on walls and jump off of them to climb the tower faster, wall jumps can be performed multiple times on the same wall. Along the way you can find fairies and magic feathers, both will protect you frȯm 1 hit of damage and be removed afterwards. The magic feather allows you to hover in mid air for a small amount of time. There are a few checkpoint flags in each section that you will respawn at if you lose a life. The checkpoint flags can also be destroyed for extra points, doing so will not respawn you there upon death.

Points are awarded for collecting loot frȯm crates, killing enemies, and finishing sections. An extra life heart will float up frȯm the bottom of the screen every 16,000 pts you gain, don't miss it. The points are as follows:
Emerald              - 100 pts
Sapphire             - 200 pts
Pearl                - 500 pts
Artifact             - 1000 pts
Destroyed Checkpoint - 500 pts
Enemy                - 100 pts/200 pts/500 pts
Boss                 - 1,000 pts


The game features up to 4 player multiplayer, but for these achievement only single player will be allowed.


Here are some ideas for the set, subject to change. I don't want to much repetition in the completing the game/tower achievements, but the game is very short so I am not to worried about them. Codes will be allowed for any individual tower/section achievements since you character does not gain any advantage for playing prior towers.

Clear each tower on each difficulty - 1/2/3/4 each on Normal/💀/Hell Mode.
Complete Normal & 💀 mode in one sitting.
Complete Normal & 💀 mode with all 4 artifacts. Shows Hell mode password at end of game
Complete Hell mode in one sitting.
Clear each tower on each difficulty without taking any damage.
Complete Normal & 💀 without losing a life.
Complete Hell mode without losing a life.

Collect >= X of points.
Complete Normal & 💀 mode with <= X points.
Collect each of the four artifacts.
Get resurrected by a fairy/feather upon death.
Complete a section wall jumping no more than X times.
Complete a tower/section within a given time.
Complete a tower/section without gaining any points.
Defeat each of the bosses in a unique way - Staying in a section of the map/No jumping/No missing any shots/etc.
Collect X amount of Emeralds/Sapphires/Pearl in a single playthrough or sitting(multiple playthroughs).
Something to do with destroying the checkpoint flags possible.
...

Any ideas are welcome.

To complete it I need to begin with 1-1 level on Hell Mode everytime. It's frustrating and spurning.

He can't. He's using CoproArch on PS3 so he can't update to latest version because cores for PS3 (or whatever OS is used for PS3) are outdated. But instead of bugging those who's making PS3 versions of program and cores he's bugging achievement developers. We are guilty that he can't play this (and few other) games with achievements, not CoproArch devs and not him.

JAM, we have no info about a software named CoproArch connecting to our API. Could you provide more details?
