ACHIEVEMENT GUIDE:

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2273/-+VKLQ==.jpgLost and Found 10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif
Obtained equipment from a defeated enemy in Wonder Boy in Monster Land.

This achievement is obtained by getting either a shield, boots or armor from an enemy (Not the gauntlet, Helmet or wing boots). If you play without buying any equipment and abuse your save states an enemy will eventually drop something for you. (I have been told the monkeys are the first to dorp something).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2273/-gWyvg==.jpgGhost Slayer 5 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif
Defeated a resilient Ghost in Wonder Boy in Monster Land.

These blue ghosts can be found one of two places. One place they can be found is in the last round. Another way to fight one is through doing the games optional side quest. TrulyDexterous of GameFAQs outlined a detailed method for this so I'm just going to use it, can't improve on perfection haha ;) The ghost is in the secret area of round 7.

"On Round 2, you will enter a cave after going through the village area. Above
the first lava pit that you come to, there are some platforms. As you land on
the platform, a sign will appear saying "Someone be beyond the wall."

Push up and enter a hidden door. Someone inside will speak to you about the
Hero's Emblem. He will also give you the Scroll To Catherine. You need to take
this to Catherine during Round 4. You can see the Scroll To Catherine in the
status menu.

At the start of Round 4, you will make your way over a body of water. On the
other side is the town of Baraboro. Climb the only ladder here and at the top
is a shield shop. To the right of this there is bare wall. Press up in the
centre of this wall and you will enter a hidden door.

In here you will find Catherine. She will tell you that an old man on Pororo
Island will help you obtain it. She will then give you the Flute to help you
reach the mansion.

Towards the end of Round 7, you will reach Pororo Island. You will see the
exit door here. However, you should ignore that for now. Instead, head to the
far right of this area. Here, there is a ladder. Climb to the top and you will
automatically play the Flute. This will reveal a mansion over on the right.
Head inside.

Once inside the mansion, go to the area with the Mini-Knight in it. Kill the
knight and go through the door above the moving platform. In here you will
find the "old man". He will give you the Charm of Star. He says that you need
to give it to the Great Catfish, who will exchange it for the Hero's Emblem if
you are truly worthy. You are now free to exit to the left and continue the
round."

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2273/-CS7Cw==.jpgGold in the Clouds 10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif
Found all the gold hidden in the clouds of Round 7 in Wonder Boy in Monster Land.

Hopefully you have been using the waggle technique and have managed to obtain legendary boots for this one. When you enter the town the first shop is the boot shop. If you have legendary boots then all you can buy is wing boots which is very much needed for this achievement. Ignore the shop for now and make your way to the end of the village and talk to the person in the last door (The second to last door has a sword upgrade just so you know). This unlocks a floating block that will send you up to the clouds. Now go all the way back to the first shop and make a save. This is where you need to grab the wing boots and leg it. The gold is fairly easy to get but the last one can be tricky as your boots must not run out by the time you reach the last cloud or else you will not be able to float over and obtain the gold and thus the achievement. Here is a video of getting the gold with the boots, I went pretty quickly and the boots ran out as soon as I landed on the final cloud so be wary and make sure you save before buying wing boots.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2273/-5pWyg==.jpgYou are a True Hero 10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif
Obtained all the Legendary Equipment in Wonder Boy in Monster Land.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2273/-nquWQ==.jpgQuestion: Who defeated me? 20 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif
Defeated the Sphinx in Wonder Boy in Monster Land.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2273/-V26Vw==.jpgRefreshment 5 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif
Washed your face in the spring at the Pyramids in Monster World IV.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2273/-L1CxA==.jpgSuch Agility 10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif
Landed 3 consecutive downthrusts without touching the ground in Monster World IV.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2273/-pxLcQ==.jpgEvery Last Drop 30 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif
Collected all the Life Drops in Monster World IV.

*THIS IS MISSABLE*
For this you need to get ALL 150 Life Drops and this is missable as you cannot re-enter previous areas like in Monster World III. A good checklist for this can be found on Strategy Wiki which details what your Blue Heart/Life drop count should be at after each area. Link. (http://strategywiki.org/wiki/Monster_World_IV/Life_Drops)

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2273/-3yz4g==.jpgWizard 10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif
Used all types of magic in Wonder Boy in Monster World.

As you progress through the game you will no doubt pick up all of magic and experiment with them and get this achievement. One type of magic you may miss is the return magic as there is only one of it in the game. It can be found in Poseidon's Temple. Dammit9x of GameFAQs has a fantastic picture of this area detailing all you need to know about getting the one piece of return magic. Link (http://www.gamefaqs.com/genesis/586607-wonder-boy-in-monster-world/faqs/52552)

The rest of the magic can be found all over but most notably in the pyramid where a secret chest exists containing a bounty of magic (2/3 of each magic). Again, Dammit9x of GameFAQs has a fantastic picture of this area detailing all you need to know about getting this secret chest. Link (http://www.gamefaqs.com/genesis/586607-wonder-boy-in-monster-world/faqs/52554).

Once you have your magic simply press start and equip it to one of your two slots. To use it, simply press the X button then press left or right depending on what slot you have the magic in. Do this for each type of magic and pop goes your achievement.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2273/+t5YGw==.jpgWith All One's Heart 30 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif
Collected all the heart containers in Wonder Boy in Monster World.

For this one I recommend (Once again) using Dammit9x's very helpful game images detailing all equipment, hearts, magic and other secret loot around every area of this game. Simply go through each picture and collect what you need. Link. (http://www.gamefaqs.com/genesis/586607-wonder-boy-in-monster-world/faqs)

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2273/+z6giA==.jpgThe Legendary Wonder Boy 15 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif
Collected all the Legendary Equipment in Wonder Boy in Monster World.

As part of the story for this game, you will need to obtain the Legendary Sword to continue onto the final area. For the rest of the equipment (Shield, boots and armor.) They can all be found within the castle in the sky. Again, Dammit9x of GameFAQs has a fantastic picture of this area detailing all you need to know about getting the equipment as well as more Hearts. Link (http://www.gamefaqs.com/genesis/586607-wonder-boy-in-monster-world/faqs/52559)

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2273/+R+pPQ==.jpgCongratulations! 45 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif
Cleared all the games. Impressive!

Fairly straightforward if you abuse saves whenever things start to get tough.

If you clear Monster Land WITH continues you will not get credit for beating the game. You must complete WITHOUT using a credit for this achievement to pop.

I'm in the Ice Pyramid now but couldn't find any fountain to wash my face in... do you know where it is?

That I do not, just starting my playthrough of that monster world. I recommend making a save at the start of the Ice pyramids and keep it safe.

This game is not a 1/10 difficulty.
I'm just going to stop you right here.
I can't say for sure myself yet, but it's certainly no 1/10. Not even close.
If that was just a placeholder difficulty then at least put NA/10.

edit: And most of the achievements are indeed missable

EVERY achievement is missable except the complete all 3, and if you use continues then you will miss that too... so yeah, every single one.

also i agree 1/10 is way way way too low. just because it has save state doesnt make it a cake walk. the dragon in Monster Land is tough and the Final Boss in monster world will take multiple tries due to that cheap saw blade and conveyor belt. needs to be at least a 4.

The spring is right below the Sphinx outside of the pyramid. You need to fail his questions in order to be able to use it and get the achievement. You can only answer questions after completing dungeons 1 and 2 in the pyramid.

And I think it's pretty much confirmed by now that Congratulations! is not glitched, and that it just requires you to beat Monster Land without continuing (which is the japanese definition of clearing an arcade game, so the description is not wrong).

1/10 was just something I put up while making the road map. Right under the big work in progress sign.

And I wouldn't say the Monster World 3 achievements are missable as every area can be revisited so there is nothing you can only get once.

"Gold in the Clouds 10
Found all the gold hidden in the clouds of Round 7 in Wonder Boy in Monster Land.

Hopefully you have been using the waggle technique and have managed to obtain legendary boots for this one."

What is the waggle technique? Sorry if that's a n00b question, I just got the game and I'm not sure how to abuse the waggle yet. :confused:

I'm experiencing some devastation over the 'no continues' rule on the complete all achievement... D:
