Hey DrHell you had any problems with the Achievements of the game, I noticed that you have gained some out of order.

Yeah, the Hot Crater Area unlocked after finishing the Musical Area... dunno why.
Wanted to report it, but someone already said in the bug section that he unlocked it like 10sec after accessing the Hot Crater Area...

he suggested it was something wrong with the values or something, as i think about it, it's probably that.

you guys were right the values ​​were changed, hopefully now work usualy

Anyone have achievement ideas for this? I might take a shot at it

I've been playing this game a lot and have had quite a bit of fun with it. I just feel this game is lacking some achievements (it's not even a full 400 yet).

Some ideas I had:

Head-start: Get the speed-boost at the level start (push right just before it says GO)
Fastest Thing Alive: Stay in boost mode for 20 seconds straight
Lucky!: Get 50 Rings from a ? Ring container
Ring Hoarder: Get 200 Rings
Gem Collector: Get a Chaos Emerald
Utter Chaos: Get all 7 Chaos Emeralds for every character
Cheesing it: Defeat a boss with Cream using only Cheese's attack

Ones I don't have a name for:

Get a 5x Ring Multiplier in a Special Stage
Get a 10x Ring Multiplier in a Special Stage
Get 500 Rings in a Special Stage
Get 1000 Rings in a Special Stage
Do a Trick 10 times in a level
Do an idle animation for 10 seconds straight (hold up)
Get the full 1600 stage ending point bonus (800 for passing the end at high speed, 800 more for stopping in the yellow area)
Beat the first boss in 15 or less seconds

This game could probably use some Time Attack or Chao Garden achievements too, but I don't have any good ideas for those yet.

I'd love to see more achievements for this game, it's one of my favorite Sonic games.

I'm sorry, but I'm against Chao Garden. Because, Chao Garden isn't really interesting in this version of the game compare to her console version.

A few more ideas for achievements

Attractive: Get an Electric Shield
Sparkly: Get an Invincibility Monitor
Speedy: Get a Speed Shoes Monitor
Extended: Get a 1-up Monitor
Top of the Scoreboards: Get 500,000 points
Highest Score: Get 999,999 points (Maybe too difficult for characters other than Cream, might require special stages, overall maybe not necessary for the set)
Lactose Intolerance: Beat level XX using Cream in 2 minutes
Zero-G: Stay in the air for ten or more seconds in the Egg Utopia boss battle (without flying/gliding)

And just for fun and to add a bit of quirk:

Twinkle Park: Play "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" using a Xylophone in Music Park (It's possible to do by hitting Orange, Orange, Green, Green, Blue, Blue, Green on a Xylophone)

There's still more achievement ideas that could be made for this set, but I'm not always good at coming up with that stuff.

This set is super basic and all, but man, this game is a brutal mess, the requiriments to get the emeralds in this game is absolutely ridiculous, most people who played this game was not even able to get the very first chaos emerald, and to unlock Amy you need to get all 7 chaos emeralds with each character, which makes this even worse, so here is my rescore:

5 > 25
5 > 10
10 > 5
10 > 25
10 > 25
10 > 25
15 > 25
20 > 25
20 > 25
20 > 25
20 > 25
20 > 50
25 > 50

Old Score: 230
New Score: 380

I agree that the case with the Special Rings could've been handled better, such as a map to show the ones you were able to fine so far or having the Special Rings located in a manner that helped you find the fastest path for an act. Nothing that the help of a locations guide can't fix, but that doesn't help in the regard that you will have to go through an act in a particular way the same way after memorizing the optimal paths to get all of the Special Rings for a particular act, as they are a bit all over the place. Still, if a game is going to have achievements, please give the game challenging/interesting ones. Not such a basic set.
