Thanks for the new achievements! The achievements are very creative, the only one I don't like it is the "Do The MJ" because it is very lucky and decoration, apart from that, the list is very good.

It's not "Lucky", it's "planning ahead" =)

Remastered! Wasn't too bad... really the most aggravating one was the Slot bonus.

Well, hey, it's a slot machine. What do you expect? you'd probably get it eventually during a play-through anyway.

Deathless Egg Zone might cause problems. Despite trying to find the problem three times, I can't find a problem. I'll need some help on that one.

Not sure what to do for Do the MJ. I did all Special Stage 1 backwards and it didn't trigger... I can't start going backwards, I have to hit a bouncing star ball.

blazethecat
To begin the challenge, you walk to a star ball and bounce backwards. then, you have to keep going backwards and do the stage that way. If you bounce forward it'll cancel it.

I'll try again, did the MJ twice already and no achieving @_@
17 Jun 07:39
blazethecat
Did you perfect it? You have to perfect it, it's in the achievement.
21 Jun 23:20
Jungon
Course I did, and no pausing.

The Hyper Knuckles Victory achievement did not trigger. I did this multiple times, and even with a new save file.

@an7xuan I just tried this and it did indeed trigger for me when I did that.

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.

"Hyper Knuckles Victory" is fixed now.

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?
09 Apr 09:54
an7xuan
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.
