If you have completed all the games & vs modes & have already got the true ending for Golden Axe 3 & your missing this achievement then use this level select for Golden Axe 2 & make sure you run it this time on normal or hard & you will pop it after the boss of course. First hit select and go to "Control Setup". Now make sure the game is in ABC mode to correspond with XAB on your pad. At the title screen highlight "Options". Now press & hold X+A+B. In the options screen continue holding X, release only A & B. Configure the game however you like. Now only press the A button to confirm all choices until you have selected your character. (don't forget to continue holding X the entire time) Once you have selected your character a number should appear on screen allowing you to select your level which you use A or B to raise the level or lower it.

This is a fairly tricky achievement to get but very doable.

Golden Axe 1 - as tempting as it is, do NOT set the Difficulty to Easy. It will not count otherwise. Simply go to the Options (through the emulator) and select Custom, and adjust your Lives and Power Meter to 5. The game shouldn't be too challenging now and you will be able to finish the game. Gilius (The dwarf with the axe) is a nice choice for breezing through.

Golden Axe 2 - Again, you cannot choose an easy option, you must go through on Normal. Again, Gilius is a good choice due to his weapon's reach. If you are inclined for an in-game cheat, there are cheats that can severely reduce the difficulty of this game:

1) At the opening cinematic, hold down the X, A and B buttons (default controls), then press Start, select Options and press Start again. Remove ONLY the X button, make your adjustments, then press Start on the Back option, then press Start again when you highlight the option to start the game. At the Character Select screen, you can release the A and B buttons. At the bottom right, you will see that you have 8 Credits.

2) This is a little tricky to pull off depending on how skillful you are, or how well you can gauge an boss' life, but if you want to try this out, hold the Magic button down as you finish a boss off, and keep it held, even through the stage's end. With the thief minigame that comes up, just hold the magic button down and do not move. At all. Once it ends, let go of the button and when the stage begins you will immediately cast a spell. This spell gives you the added benefit of having 255 "books" to cast with at will. Bear in mind that if you cast more than your character's maximum magic capacity allows, you will crash the game. Don't use this particular glitch if you want to have some kind of challenge as the game becomes laughably easy.

Golden Axe 3 - The tips in Golden Axe Forever will be very useful, and you may as well get it anyway.

The Panther tactic will be the easiest method of clearing the game fast, and with a respectable enough score to enable you to get the true ending.

If you cleared all three of these games (Remember that GA 1 and 2 CANNOT be cleared on Easy. It will not pop if you do.) you should get this achievement.
