It's working really fine in RetroArch with the picodrive core! ;-)
19 Apr 19:01 2017
I thought I checked PicoDrive before but it looks like I did not. Thanks for the heads up, meleu!
19 Apr 19:03 2017
Looks like someone just added achievements for Wonder Boy III as well. Guess I need to shift my focus to getting some Master System cheevos. :)
19 Apr 19:06 2017
First 2 achievements popped without me playing the game, however. "Hedgehogs are careful" and "Tastes Like Neon". The latter popped once the demo mode started past the initial title screen.
19 Apr 20:45 2017
Sorry. I forgot to mention that you need to update your picodrive. It received a small fix to make MasterSystem cheevos work just yesterday (18-april-2017).Please, update and try again.
21 Apr 2:37 2017
I just loaded the game and got "Hedgehogs are Careful" and "Tastes Like Neon" from the start..

I really enjoyed this 8-bit version of Sonic. Would love to see the other master system Sonic games get achievements!
