Looks like someone just added achievements for Wonder Boy III as well. Guess I need to shift my focus to getting some Master System cheevos. :)

First 2 achievements popped without me playing the game, however. "Hedgehogs are careful" and "Tastes Like Neon". The latter popped once the demo mode started past the initial title screen.

Sorry. I forgot to mention that you need to update your picodrive. It received a small fix to make MasterSystem cheevos work just yesterday (18-april-2017).Please, update and try again.
