I really enjoyed this set. It was just the right amount of challenge without being outright impossible like some sets can be.

Does the ROM that you get when buying S3&K on Steam not count? I bought it on Steam (it's a part of the Mega Drive Classics) and they give you a ROM you can use in any emulator. I used it in RetroArch with achievements on and I wasn't getting any.

Mastered back in my quest days. "Do the M.J." achievement was a challenging one. As someone already said, the set lacks of "Perfect Bonus" on all Special Stages built in one achievement or two separately: one for Sonic 3 and other for Sonic & Knuckles

One curiosity of this lock-on feature is that Launch Base Zone is easier than it was presented in Sonic 3 and has fewer death traps in comparison.

the achievements have such uninspired names, ice cap is two words, the achievements for getting the chaos emeralds use sonic 2 screenshots, and they're just called the super emeralds not super chaos emeralds. so many problems

I just wish some of these archievements would allow the level select mode.

So we got a challenge cheevo which requires perfect'ing a special stage (going backwards), but NO usual cheevos for individually perfect'ing each of the 14 ones? :( Considering a player needs to do those stages at least 42 times to get all True ending cheevos, having more rewards for doing them would be very much welcome.

Mastered (platinado)! Warning: the "Do the M.J." cheevo didn't trigger for me in the Genesis Plus core. Changed to PicoDrive, it triggered just fine.
