(BTW when I asked if Crash 2 would have achievements when loading from a physical disc, I MEANT to say: if I load a game that has achievements from a physical disc, would it work?)

(I.E. Crash 2, Panzer Dragoon, stuff like that.)

Does this game have a way to select any level?
6 Mar 2020

Yes. In the Options menu play these sounds once in order: 19, 65, 09, 17 (Yugi Naka's date of birth). Then, on the title screen, hold A+Start. If you restart the console you do NOT need to enter the code again.

Mastered back in my quest days. The set is tough and pretty enjoyable to play, I must say. This set contradicts the main aspect of the game: It's the easiest Sonic game of all franchise in matter of Retrogaming (before existence of Modern Sonic)
