Pro-tip: Play the game on "Fast". It's paradoxically easier and way more fun.

Good Achievements. I hate it and like it. I'm never gonna play this game again. If You have problems getting these achievements, use 256 live glitch. It's very useful to earn them.

Thanks fellow brony! Even Buttnik's ultimate cheapiness couldn't stand up to THAT many lives!

Mastered!

Those bonus cheevos are so tiring... you only get one chance and the ball trajectory is so random.

Am I allowed to use level-select to help me get to the third Bonus Stage to grab that Chicken Button in Hardcore mode or not? Gah! It's such garbage having to waste time to get to The Machine, beat it, and fail on the stage! I NEED THAT ACHIEVEMENT!
11 May 2020

Yep, looks like it, there's no protection on it
11 May 2020

Not like it's needed anyway... "Awesome Score" pretty much covers the "no codes" aspect by itself.

YASSS! I FINALLY GOT IT! I FINALLY GOT CHICKEN BUTTON ON HARDCORE MODE.Mastered! :)

Mastered back in my quest days. Probably this is one of the most raging games in Sonic franchise. The only thing missing was an achievement requiring completion on one Multiball Bonus.

Mastered. Finally beat this game after 20 something years

This set will be updated soon, as stated in the forum, so much of this will change as well as new achievements being added.

Set revision should be complete, hope it goes well..
14 Feb 2021

Mastered and remastered again! Thanks to all developers involved in making this set and MGNS8M for revisioning it! I think I got a little of my sanity drained, I need a breather xD Time Bonus, Jackpot Bonus and Multiball subsets were the toughest ones!
14 Feb 2021

Fast mode subset was a nice addition to force players to play that way. Never finished the game on Fast mode before... Such adrenaline, much speed! (and I am still not using level select cheat yet. Wasn't needed to :p )

One more thing: It seems that majority of achievements (if not all of them) of this set are blocked against "multiplayer" mode. So, don't ever think changing default value "1 PL" in Mode on Options screen to take advantage on your trials and errors.

In case of more people still get confused about how to beat Robotnik in Showdown while pressing the lower button of his spacecraft a lot of times, take a look here for explanation: https://retroachievements.org/viewtopic.php?t=164&c=79181#79181

OH MY GOD! I can't believe it! I finally mastered! Wow, it's a very hard set! Finally I did it! Thx for revision. :D

Not getting the 100m achievement and mastering this before the onslaught of new achievements hurts now
