SonicRanticoot 3 Aug 2022 02:37
After starting this set many months ago, finally a master. Incredible game and a pretty good set, a lot of the non-progression ones I found actually pretty fun
RetroSprites 3 Aug 2022 23:40
Mastered, good achievements, the game is very good, although sometimes it has one or another annoying bug, it doesn't prevent you from enjoying it.

StonyPony 18 Nov 2023 02:17
Anyone else feel like the Special Stage backwards things should be removed? It adds nothing to the gameplay. I appreciate a nod to MJ, but that one honestly should be part of a challenge set.
ZeroHabilidade 27 Nov 2023 00:20
@StonyPony I haven't really tried it yet, but I would have to agree. It feels really out of place.
megamanxlegends 27 Nov 2023 04:35
Mastered. MJ achievement was really the only one that gave me trouble, as I had to fight muscle memory. Had fun revisiting my favorite 2D Sonic game.

Do the MJ is more intimidating than it ended up actually being. Had more trouble with Right Base Zone and deathless death egg. Good set!
jaydee03 10 Jan 2024 04:00
Mastered! Was worried "Do the MJ" was gonna take me days to pull off but it just took a few hours of practice. The Jackpot achievement took longer than it lol.
