Damn, and I thought Mario Pinball's achievements were a trial. This is like a trial TIMES TEN!
MusicalMinerdude 23 Aug 2021 07:51
I'll say! I gotta say though, I'm proud enough just for getting so close to the top of the Fast leaderboard. For many years I've been DREAMING of clearing the game on both speeds... That day is here. Whew.
sittaman 26 Nov 2021 14:22
PRO TIP #1 - Use the Fast setting always. It's better and most achievements here required this option to be on. Also make sure your emulator clock setting is not set higher than default as it would render the game so fast it's unplayable.
sittaman 26 Nov 2021 14:23
PRO TIP #2 - No Level Select code. No achievements will unlock if you do the level select code, so don't waste your time trying it.
MGNS8M 24 Dec 2021 00:05
Well, a few legacy achievements allowed level-select for years, so I went ahead and allowed those to continue(but at lower points). Otherwise yes, the others will remain locked against cheat-codes.
Stixil 12 Jan 2022 02:59
Challenging game but very fun once you get the hang of it, worth a try at the very least, but don't expect free points from this one
Revel90 14 Feb 2022 00:28
Having played this game for 25 years, going through this set has been a blast. You always have a surprising amount of influence in Sonics air movement with the D-Pad, use it constantly and youll find a lot of the randomness is taken away.
Enagonius 7 Dec 2022 15:20
If there's already an achievement for beating the game without Level Select, then why lock out the other progression achievements when using Level Select?
RetrarkJJPR 13 Mar 2023 08:03
This game is honestly underrated in my opinion. It’s not a masterpiece or anything, but I like it quite a bit.
MGNS8M 14 Mar 2023 15:37
Level select shouldn't have been allowed at all, but because it was for years for certain achievements, I left those old-achievements that way. The new ones were made with the intent of being obtained by getting them naturally.
ElectricAngel 31 May 2023 23:13
Mastered! Such a great set! Gotta say going through all the achievements made me really fall in love with the game. I had such a blast doing this one <3
MGNS8M 12 Aug 2023 21:32
Progress includes the first 3 bosses, with the final boss as set to Win Condition. If I recall these are some of the few achievements that do allow Stage Select, so you CAN get that much by using stage-select to get the final achievement, if you already have the others. The rest will be considered 'extra'.
blackrook29 18 Sep 2023 19:47
this is the worst game i ever played. resorted to save states on last level. i do not want to ever play this game again. the controls are horrible. take sonic out of the design you have a terrible pinball game. just my 2 cents.
blackrook29 19 Sep 2023 14:48
showdown is terrible. there is nothing to learn its just swings and roundabouts going in the same loop till you eventually die. the central emerald is infuriating. i can not consistently move sonic where i need to go. i quit moving on to next game. 0 out of 10.
SuperGamer18 19 Nov 2023 14:00
Fun fact: I got 6 achievements by accident when using the Sonic & Knuckles lock-on using RetroArch's Genesis Plus GX core. The achievements I got are: Ring Mania, Good Ring, Awesome Ring, Nice Score, Great Score and Awesome Score.
MGNS8M 25 Nov 2023 23:11
That's not really fun for us, who need to fix those kinds of things.

I went ahead and reinforced against accidental unlocking for those 6, but I'm not sure how many other things can easily be affected. I just played a few rounds of Blue Sphere and didn't see any others pop.


Also I changed out the fake-Measured tags I had used for various things, and swapped them over to Trigger(since I guess we didn't have Trigger back then). So for the Timer-Bonus and No-Death achievements there should be a Trigger-icon for those now.
SuperGamer18 6 Dec 2023 14:32
Oh, I see. I just wanted to notify about this. I wasn't trying to cheat, I just did it for curiosity.
MGNS8M 14 Dec 2023 16:10
Right, and reporting it was the right thing to do, but calling it a fun fact like it was a good thing for others to try is a bit off. At any rate it helped to get it fixed and even upgrade to Trigger on the things that didn't have it and I forgot about it.


Don't worry too much about it; there are those who make a mess of the site by trying to cut everything down, and I see that as being a much worse cheat. You're a softcore player, so I doubt they care that much about a few accidental unlocks...
MGNS8M 18 Dec 2023 16:37
I added an experimental Measured-time leaderboard, mostly to see how long it takes people to beat the game(any speed), should start in Toxic Caves, hopefully there isn't a situation where it either stops counting or allows a shorter submission artificially.

I also tucked some of the leaderboards into Start-and-Submit style, so they don't crowd the screen too much(score is always displayed, Bonus-count is nice to see but not usually necessary).

Hey I wanted know if it would be possible to add a rom hack to the list of supported rom.
In this video there's a modified USA rom of the game, the only difference with the original game is the option music being fixed.
But it's different enough to not be recognized as the USA rom, making obtaining achievements with this one impossible.
