Finally, I Re-Mastered this. That Deathless run cheevo was literally brutal but fair since games like S2 or CD has a deathless cheevo. (thank god there is a shortcut in Labyrinth Zone 1 and Scrap Brain 3)
FishyBiller 26 Jun 2024 06:39
I love the Heroes reference in the titles
Kreb 27 Jun 2024 14:57
Re-mastered!
Capeira 28 Jun 2024 15:29
im a bit mixed about the ''beating the game under 40 minutes''. I'll probably do it anyway but my spider sense says me that ill get very pissed trying to get that one
Capeira 28 Jun 2024 16:57
ALSO WHAT THE HELL IS THIS ''special collector'' ACHIVEMENT????? the special stages for sonic1 aren't about skill or muscle memory, its about luck and hoping that the game's physics and the camera won't let you fall on the goal balls.
Its seems like a unnecessary achivement that was made because ''why not?''
Poefred 28 Jun 2024 17:38
Not only is that provably false, I don't know what achievement you're talking about lool. Am I missing something or is there not actually a special collector achievement??
AManNamedQuest 28 Jun 2024 17:51
There isn't one. I would assume he's referring to "got them all". Regardless, his comment is incorrect, they are based on muscle memory more than skill, but both are required.
Poefred 28 Jun 2024 18:08
That's all that makes sense but getting the good ending isn't just some random made up "Why not" challenge that people usually complain about on here. But also they've done that like a year ago, perhaps they're looking at the subset?
AManNamedQuest 28 Jun 2024 18:12
No special collector there either. I'm working through sonic 1 subsets ATM and you only get achievements for getting all the rings in the individual levels (Perfect subset) and collecting each individual emerald without pressing left and right (hold right to lose - Knuckles in Sonic 1) . I'm not sure what he's referring to at all
AManNamedQuest 28 Jun 2024 18:13
Regardless, it's an insignificant "casual" complaint. Either git gud or don't worry about it. I don't understand why you'd gripe about achievements and get them removed instead of facing the challenge
Poefred 28 Jun 2024 18:28
Ah, just found out the achievement they're referring to is an unofficial achievement. It's not in the set lool. But to be fair if it was it would be pretty rough, it's one of the hardest achievements in the current subset.
UniverseOfGamer 4 Jul 2024 09:13
Remastered!
Potater234 4 Jul 2024 11:04
Not a fan of the new achievements.
Derby42 6 Jul 2024 01:59
Just remastered this set, and i mean its still easy, it's just having to understand the quirks of sonic 1, the deathless achivement took me 2 attemps
FireSonic 11 Jul 2024 04:37
Remastered!
Nesmaster666 12 Jul 2024 04:21
Sonic is a very cheeky fellow
ZeroHabilidade 12 Jul 2024 20:05
Would someone be willing to make a subset based on the under-achiever acievement? I feel like that would be fun
Firechance142 13 Jul 2024 06:15
Man that was easy. i felt like i did this video game in under 30 minutes or smth, but that aside, that was fun. The levels was challenging, expect Labrinth lol, under-achiver was asking for perfection without touching a simple badnik. but regardless, this was fun.
ZeroHabilidade 13 Jul 2024 16:53
sooo im just missing the hidden emblems to remaster this, did the deathless run almost first try. Really not bad at all. But then again, I've beaten this game tens of times, most of them with 2-3 deaths tops, mostly to glitches or jank. So i kinda get people complaining about the deathless cheevo being here in the first place, not very welcoming to begginers. Either way nice work on the set and stuff.
BitPepo 14 Jul 2024 18:58
Except for the deathless run, it was very fun to complete the game.
