Anyone wanna help in figuring out how the Stars work in this to make some achievements? I can't figure out how the High Scores are stored

I started making the achievements, but the system I based it on (1 star = 1 cheevo) would produce... 100 achievements. That's IF none were added for the Very Hard Missions and the extra games. Instead, I think it's better to do 1 for the first star earned and 1 for the last one. That brings us down to 40. If we use the same system for the Very Hard Missions, that's +18 so the total is at 69. The 9 hidden games would give us 18 more so the grand total is 87.

I highly suggest making achievements for all stars per one minigame here. This will give you 38 achievements, which is very satisfying number for achievements in this case (only completion badges, based on the same template). The best quality completion achievements are these which are grouping the possible checkpoints to the lowest possible number, still resembling part of the game. One achievement per star? That would be really cheap. One for first and one for last in the game is like making achievement for completing Stage 1-1 and 1-4 in SMB, which is wrong in my opinion. Go for all stars per minigame.

ok. I wanted to still give the satisfaction of a progress achievement without it feeling bloated, but I guess I can ditch it entirely.

Also, do you think I should include the Very Hard Modes and Hidden games? The game doesn't reward you for completing them, but since we have the ability to do so on here, I figured why not? I'm indifferent either way though.

I've included both of them in the first place. 38 cheevos = 20 normal mini game achievements + 9 very hard + 9 secret.

I've changed the game icon to match PAR and look overall less JPEG-y.
