Not sure why the box art says it's still "Sonic! SP". Camelot's site says they were established on 4/4/94

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.
