I can confirm that Do the MJ is broken, as I have beaten it as Tails, no pausing, bounced off of the Star sphere, perfected it with all rings, did not bounce twice, still no achievement.

Anyone know of a good spot to get past the top of the screen in Mushroom Hill? I'm at my wits end on this one.

This game really needs a score based leaderboard.Scores in this game usually tend to be ignored, but it would a fun addition to the achievements system to see these included in some way.

How can I get the "King of the Hill" achievement?

Use knuckles in act 2 and go to the top path. After you pass a giant ring, you enter the "white " part of the stage. As soon as you enter, you will see a mushroom next to a wall with a spring; grab that wall and climb it to the top.

Do The M.J. seems to be the most reported achievement. I'll be sure to look into it pretty soon to be sure.

Score-based leaderboards are nice, but there's really no true way to get a lot of points in the game without grabbing loads of rings or finishing the act with 9:59 left, and any possible score challenge is ruined by Launch Base Zone bird spawners.

"Perfect all bonus stage" missing....
