Any reason why this game 405 points instead of 400?

Thundard
nope... "Coin collector" is not mine

I have to apologize, "coin collector" is mine, and I was new at the site when I did that, I'll remove it when I get home from work. Sorry about this.

Hidden Glove and Hidden Blue Wing Boots really need to be addressed: I tried the Wing Boots at 2 spots and it didn't work. Either the achievements need to be updated in their description to the spot they're activated or the achievement itself(cont)

NightmareJames
needs to be updated to include all spots: At the current rate it's random and IDK where to go to collect them. There was a problem with certain boss achievements with this as well

The wing boots that triggered it for me are near the boss that guards the Battle Suit and the Magical Rod. The Hidden Glove is above this area, you can just barely see it behind a pillar. But you'll need Wing Boots to get it...

...because of an unjumpable gap in the floor.

As for the rank achievements (esp at the beginning ranks) it's easy to get 2 or 3 ranks on one huge spelunking outside of the town and come back to speak to the guru effectively missing some of the lower rank achievements.
6 Aug 5:16 2016
ZeroEscape
I understand why Thundard did the = val instead of the >= rank due to save states and abusing passwords. I mean who's to say someone didn't have a legitimate password, but who's to say they did? It's just annoying to have to play the game again
6 Aug 5:17 2016
ZeroEscape
to get those few pesky achievements that slipped through due to kicking some @$$. ^_^

Mind posting a video where the Hidden Gloves and Boots are? I have no clue on where those are

The Achievements are not working for me.

Any word on the locations of the Winged Boots and Glove? I'd really like to know where they are

Weird, every time I load Ganbare Goemon, Faxanadu shows up on my Retro Achievements wall.

Thundard, great work, great set. Very much enjoyed replaying this game. Thank you. 5*.

Once again, like NightmareJames asked, does anyone have a video or something of where to get the Hidden Glove and Wing Boots Achievement? Thanks!
25 Aug 2:26 2017
Kronoan
I found where the Hidden Glove is to get the Achievement. I'll record a video of where it is soon. I still need the location of the Hidden Wing Boots ...

PerfctWeapon
Man, the hidden gloves were annoying. I cant make a video, but: head left out of daybreak. Go left 2 screens, down 1 screen. Its hidden behind a pillar. Head left 1 screen, use the boots to fly up, then right again. Voila!
