Todo: level achievements, complete as each character (Sonic Tails, Knuckles?), emerald achievements, super- achievements, no-ring/perfect ring challenges, time challenges, no-hit challenges? Secret areas?
12 Jun 22:49 2013
The achievements're also great here just like in the Sonic1 and the Sonic2. I love especially the "No Ring Challenge 1" :) But I think here maybe would be nice a little bit more achievement. Maybe 25 like in the first two part.
12 Jun 22:51 2013
I missed especially the time challenges,those were nice and challanging in the first two part as well.
12 Jun 22:55 2013
Sounds good! We've got another 200 points to allocate for this game so we have plenty of room for more, and I think time-challenges are great idea! I'll make a forum topic so we can all share ideas: retroachievements.org/viewtopic.php?t=160
12 Jun 23:17 2013
Thank you:) It would be great:)
2 Jan 15:30 2014
Hmm.. we need achievements for Sonic 3 & Knuckles!
2 Jan 16:42 2014
SnK is next definitely, then Knuckles in Sonic 2, then Sonic 3 and Knuckles! Anyone got any good ideas for achievements?
3 Jan 8:54 2014
Yep, -follow knuckles into hidden palace zone (if you got all chaos emeralds by the time you got to mushroom hill zone) -get first super emerald -get all super emeralds as each character(hyper sonic, knuckles, super tails etc
3 Jan 8:57 2014
I ran out of space :p 32 MEG EPIC: complete the whole game in one sitting (from angel island to doomsday zone) HYPER DOOMSDAY: have all 7 super emeralds by the time you reach the doomsday zone all above are for sonic 3+k :)
3 Jan 8:58 2014
Could probably come up with some creative ones if I spent a bit more time with the game.. I played the hell out of it as a kid! ok I'll shut up now.
