Not sure why the box art says it's still "Sonic! SP". Camelot's site says they were established on 4/4/94 https://www.camelot.co.jp/public-wpFIu30X/?page_id=201

wow, was just thinking about how great it would be to see achievements for this. thank you for your hard work!

Great game, great set ! Some of the puzzle make it look like a proto Golden Sun at times and I love the early 3D jank. I feel like the set is a tad low in term of points given how long this is to complete and having a single achievement for item collection is kind of oppressive. Especially when you realize in the last room of the game that you are missing ONE item and have to revisit all the previous dungeons until you find it... It's probably directly tied to the endgame item collection percentage but it would have been cool to have it be like the Shining in the Darkness set. In any case, thanks Alfex for the set and for how quick you helped me when one was bugged.

Mastered! Phew, was able to snag the 10th spot. I had already started, but had to travel back to Japan, I had a little jetlag, so I blitzed it with fast forward. Playing through again no fast forward. Pro tip: Don't level passed level 20 and then promote. It's not like previous Shining titles where levels reset. If you promote at level 30, you will still need level 30/31 experience required to get to level 2.

Mastered! A not to anyone trying. Before battling Rilix for the first time when you go on the boat in Enrich Castle, there is a chest ghost in the areas that are inaccessible after the Throne Room Fight.

Great set! Hope one day this'll work in Yabause forks in hi-res :)

When you're almost at the end of the game and then a bunch of new achievements drop. XD

Nice job Ghal416 I am glad I waited for the revision before starting to play the set.

Thanks Ghal for putting in the work on this revision. This is a really great game that always deserved a much more polished set. Excellent job!

Quick question, when it says "No Aura" does it include Akanes Praying too or just Lisa and Melody spells?
Ghal416 13 Jan 2024 14:45
Praying is Akane's version of Aura, so yes it does count the same concerning magic spells.

And appreciate the thanks everyone, glad I could bring this revision together :)

@paladiam1 I tested Prayer on the first Akane achievement and it indeed cancels the achievement. I haven't tested Restore or Healing Rain as they're both party healing as I didn't want to have to reset the achievement if it cancelled.

Mastered yet again, hehe. StHA is one of those games that I play yearly, so a revision was more than welcome for me. It definitely made the game more enjoyable. There were some harder achievements and had to mix up the strategies and also had characters being healers who I would never have as healers. If anyone has any issues with achievements feel free to ask and I'll share how I unlocked them. Thanks for the revision, Ghal. Who knows maybe someone else will do another revision, haha.
