I've never played the NES version of this before. It should've been named Lagodius, lol.

I finished it in Manual power-up mode, and it gave me the achievement for Auto instead.

Weird, that shouldn't happen. I plan to revisit and add bonus "DLC"-style achievements only compatible with the Famicom game, so then I will take a look at it. For now, be sure you are using the Euro version of Parodius, not the Famicom for that one.

2 new achievements added: "Moai Ambush" and "Tip of the Iceberg" which are secret level/easter egg-based achievements exclusive to the Famicom release.

The "Island of Pirates" achievement popped for me when I died the first time on level 1 (Famicom version, fceumm in retroarch)

"Island of Pirates" and all other progress achievements updated, along with fix to the Manual/Auto duo. It's safe now to say both Famicom and Palcom versions are fully compatible with the set.
