    This cheevo makes you rewire how your brain works when playing Sonic, the amount of times I managed to get through a level with 0 points and then forgot about ending after 5mins... Interesting one

    Hopefully fixed now thanks to feedback; should now also work in Genesis GX Core.

    Made it after two painful weeks and... No achievement unlock for me. Oh, the frustration...

    Got more 3 times before the achievement popped. I was using picodrive all the way.

    Kinda easy, if it was hard for you guys, you need more practice in Sonic. The only tricky part was the spikes between platforms in Green Hill 2. Remember 3 points:
    * Don't kill any enemy except the boss, try to not roll
    * Avoid grabbing too many rings
    * Wait until past 5 and a half minutes to finish a stage
    Ramiro1992 28 May 2023 13:11
    * And beat the stage with 0 rings and more than 5 and a half minutes

    If you play on Steam RetroArch, use the core "Genesis Plus GX", the "
    Under-achiever" achievement doesn't work on PicoDrive core.

    The boss gives you 1000 points, so you can't get any other points at all. Unlike master system, breaking monitors doesn't give you points. You can get 1-ups by rings or monitors and its fine. If you die its fine as long as you never get any points.

    Not that hard, but extremely tedious.

    I got to Act 2 before a Newtron flies to the right and I got 100 points.
    CLD21Studios 24 Feb 2024 17:26
    Now I've just finally completed it.
