First game ever to be mastered as it was the first set available on Retro Achievements website! "Under-achiever" was a challenging achievement back in my quest days xD

platinado!! quando eu era criana, joguei esse classico mas eu nao era muito bom. com os desafios propostos, eu me superei e fechei todos. ate zerar o jogo com as 6 esmeraldas do caos eu fiz, algo q eu nao conseguia na infancia.

Friend, go to the game official forum topic (you can see the link right above the comments section) and look at which rom files are linked to the set. Each rom file have an individual and unique code called MD5. Download the ones with the correct MD5

Recien completado al 200%, muy buena eleccion de logros, fue muy entretenido hacerlo.Recordatorio de usar la rom de Japan/Korean para el logro de los 1000 puntos en Green Hill.

Tambien puedes usar la version (World), amigo. Pero si la seleccion de nivel se usa para hacer otro cheevo, debera reiniciar el juego mediante un Hard Reset (Abre el juego de nuevo), de lo contrario, lo cheevo no aparecera.
