Wow, don't pass the score you want for the achieve, it won't pop. Happened twice to me, went from 690k to 800k after a boss and didn't get 700k achieve. Went from 970k to rollover 1800 at the end of a level and didn't get 990k achieve. :(

Same thing happened to me valkyrov... super disappointed. I just the 990000 by finishing a stage (not involving a boss in my case) and it didn't pop.

So do anyone know exactly how to trigger than 100000 point bonus you sometimes get after a boss? I can't find any info on it anywhere.

Man, that Swat Kats achievement is TOUGH. Extremely satisfying to finally get it. Excellent game.

The game needs a "Finished the game" achievement.

Indeed it is a little weird to "master" the set without needing to actually beat the game.
