How in the world am I supposed to achieve Adventure Master?????
27 Jul 14:02 2015
Finish the game => new game + mode where you start with all your stats from the previous game (8 in each skill) and all of the magic spells (no need for the side quests no more). Bosses are then very easy, each time you hit 9000 points you get a 1up.

I am surprised! There are not many achievment for this game. The achievement of the dungeon item for exemple.
9 Feb 13:33 2016
thanks :)
27 Jul 4:08 2016
Just added Item achievements.It's not much, but having them would be a cool thing in my opinion.
27 Jul 4:33 2016
I've been intending on adding some challenging ones myself so if you want I can promote yours to the main set once I'm done with the ones I'm planning so people doing the new ones can do them all at once.
27 Jul 17:37 2016
That would be kind, thanks :)

Will adventure master still unlock if you just marathon the game through on the first new game and manage not to die/dontinue?
15 May 21:33 2017
Anyone have any tips on how to beat the Bosses of the Palaces without getting damaged?
16 May 16:28 2017
Also, to get the Adventure Master Achievement, can the file be a new game + with saves etc. or does it have to be a 000 file? Thanks!
16 May 19:29 2017
For how to beat bosses without getting damaged, best is watching some youtube videos tutorials, they are pretty well made to explain how to do it (and it works with new game +). And yes adventure master achievement works with new game + too.
18 May 6:47 2017
OK, cool! Thanks!
17 Jan 21:14 2018
I'll have another go at this again and try not to pull my hair out just beating the game
7 Mar 1:13 2018
Although the bosses without damage was very fun and challenging, they weren't as difficult as I originally thought. Adventure master is interesting as well!

Great game! Thanks for this set!
