Do The M.J. seems to be the most reported achievement. I'll be sure to look into it pretty soon to be sure.

Score-based leaderboards are nice, but there's really no true way to get a lot of points in the game without grabbing loads of rings or finishing the act with 9:59 left, and any possible score challenge is ruined by Launch Base Zone bird spawners.

I really enjoyed this set. It was just the right amount of challenge without being outright impossible like some sets can be.

Does the ROM that you get when buying S3&K on Steam not count? I bought it on Steam (it's a part of the Mega Drive Classics) and they give you a ROM you can use in any emulator. I used it in RetroArch with achievements on and I wasn't getting any.

Mastered back in my quest days. "Do the M.J." achievement was a challenging one. As someone already said, the set lacks of "Perfect Bonus" on all Special Stages built in one achievement or two separately: one for Sonic 3 and other for Sonic & Knuckles

One curiosity of this lock-on feature is that Launch Base Zone is easier than it was presented in Sonic 3 and has fewer death traps in comparison.
