Glad someone's finally bringing achievements to one of my all time favorite games. Can't wait!

An excuse to finally beat this game. Got to the plutonium boss once as a kid, didn't have the heart to pick it back up again.

Thank you for putting this up. I was actually delaying a play-thru with hopes of this.

2 bugs:1. Using homing missiles doesn't work.2. Using the shortcut through the blocks to get you out of Stage 3 doesn't pop the achievement. UGH.

Using Homing Missles works, you have to press B repeatedly whiled pressing down inside the Sophia. Keep pressing until it triggers. The value for that address is stubborn.

Shortcut worked for me. Homing missiles worked as well.

Area 3 shortcut didn't trigger for me, and I was using Blaster Master (USA).nes.

OK, I changed the requirements on "Detour" so that you don't have to jump up over the ledge to open the achievement. So it would trigger at the moment you find the path instead. But people :) please report any broken achievements in RANes, thanx !

Thanks for fixing the achievement. And I would report things through RANES, but I only get a response less than half the time. It seems to be a little more effective to post on the game's wall. I'll just use both next time.

Would be nice if RANes had a Save Point feature for games like this. If you can't complete the game in one sitting, you simply use this, which creates a temporary snapshot that is deleted when you return to the game. Useful for hardcore.

Playing like how the game was intended to be played is the true purpose of hardcore mode. With that said, temp saving may not happen at least when in relation to playing in hardcore mode.

Kdecks has updated the set to nullify if the boss glitch is used. If you attempt to use this exploit, any further achievements will not be earned. This blocks players from skipping bosses as the set is mostly progress based.
