Just so you know: None of my Link's Awakening DX ROMs could be detected as being THIS game, because to RAVBA, this is a game for the Original GameBoy, were the DX version is for GameBoy Color. How did you made the game detected as this one?
25 Jun 1:52 2015
Just started this up and upon entering the shop the first time I got Rupee wallet(250) which of course shouldn't happen when I haven't even gotten a single rupee..
6 Jul 20:45 2015
Why i had Ruppe wallet when in enter on the shop ?
11 Aug 19:12 2015
Just opened this game for the first time. I got the Rupee Wallet Achievement without doing anything...
29 Aug 20:49 2015
Bested Slime Eye didn't trigger.
29 Aug 21:28 2015
Am I the only one who tried to do these achievements on the Game Boy version? RAVBA doesn't open up this achievement list with the Game Boy ROM, only for the DX/GBC version.

First Rupees fixed and tested. Should work now
28 Apr 18:24 2017
I couldnt get bested Genie either.
5 Jan 21:19 2018
This was very fun, I enjoyed this set. There were some hard times, like Bested Genie, but getting the Piece of Power made things WAY easier. I'm surprised I got Bested Nightmare on my first try XD But with that, set mastered, will play DX later thx!

18 Oct 11:15 2018
Thanks for this set, It was awesome to do it again

12 Nov 11:27 2018

18 Nov 21:31 2018
Have anyone a Save.stat for the "A Dream Come True" Achievement plz? :)
23 Feb 23:01 2019
Gonna play this when the Switch version comes out :)
9 Mar 0:29 2019
Mastered!
2 Sep 20:35 2019
There needs to be an achievement for filling out every square on the map on this one and the DX Version. The grid-based map begs to be filled, plus its fun to go through and see what little spots you missed.
20 Oct 21:36 2019
Ok, I LITERALLY DELETED A SAVE THAT WAS IN THE WIND FISH'S EGG, BECAUSE I WAS TRYING TO COPY MY SAVE FILE TO BE GUARANTEED THAT I WOULDN'T BE THIS DUMB TO DELETE IT, BUT...
2 Nov 15:47 2019
Then, Mastered!
13 May 4:44 2020
None of the achievements for "collect X number of rupees" will trigger for me, though all the rest seem to be working fine.
