1D,2D,3D,4B,5D Bonus B
18/25 :D

I've been playing Transcendence for years, and there are still things/achievements I have to do, like permadeath :D

You should add a Bonus question 2: Did you ever finish a game without backtracking ?

Luckily you can do permadeath and no backtrack at the same time. That one game counts double then, right?

Not usually, but on the occasional good game I have.

Edit: After reading through the other answers, I should point out that I beat the old Heretic, when it was just the one enemy that you had to not destroy :P

1. D
2. D
3. C (look at point 5)
4. C
5. D (actually, I don't count any games with an resurrection as won)
6. Three or four times, don't remember.
28 or 29 (if you count non-permadeaths as wins :D)

Or maybe less - I don't have time for killing Phobos Dreads - I'm a speedrunner :D

EDIT: Last version I've played is 1.01 - I'm waiting for a stable version (I HATE broken savegames, mainly due to my permadeath mania :D)
Sorry for my poor english :-(
Last cause of death: arena opponent + crappy Cyclotron shield generator (I was insured).

My answer is for 1.01 alone. I still have to finish 1.05. I have a simple observation: Why is 1.01 much harder to play than 1.05? Is it just me or just me? Im confused now.... :?

I DON'T WANNA ADD EM UP. I SUCK!!! :oops:
