(can't wait for the no death run)
rabbids4eva 5 Feb 2019 14:06
Like its Game Gear counterpart, if you don't get all emeralds, Tails will die in the end
NgNvNn 14 Dec 2019 03:59
Rings from monitors only count as one for ring cheevos.
professorgascan 3 Feb 2020 13:48
The boss fights and the life monitor achievements are triggering for me as soon as I start the Act they're in. (I haven't put tickets in because it seems to be for all of them).
Psychosteve 3 Feb 2020 22:44
Mustard!...man, that was quite a ride!
Captainix 4 Mar 2020 09:11
How can we beat the achievments that ask to collect more than 200 rings? Do we haver to use some Patch for the game can make the count?
Psychosteve 25 Mar 2020 03:32
Go there if you need to know where to find rings in each level (really helpfull bu it won't show 1UP, emeralds and ring TVs though...) : http://info.sonicretro.org/Sonic_the_Hedgehog_2_(8-bit)/Maps
Psychosteve 25 Mar 2020 03:40
Beware that the "Aqua Lake 2" map is a little different (like the "RAY" rings which are not in this MS version)... i guess they mixed up with the GameGear version. But apart from that you can trust it!
DarkBoolen 5 Jun 2020 17:50
I'll take the achievement's I get but this f'n Game sucks for a Sonic the Hedgehog game. Worse flying mechanic in a game ever, am I right?
Shaider84 4 Nov 2020 21:53
for me, is a pretty original and solid game. i saw way worst flying mechanics even in Mario games...
MusicalMinerdude 27 Aug 2021 08:01
Crystal Egg act 3 speedrun leaderboard doesn't seem to have a submit trigger, meaning it doesn't work o_oon a side note, I find it weird that Sky High doesn't trigger when the last hit is dealt on the boss like the other bosses that have working leaderboards
MusicalMinerdude 27 Aug 2021 08:02
...it works, it just triggers a few seconds later for some reason; between that and the capsule breaking. Curious as to what causes this
professorgascan 25 Jan 2022 15:53
I used to play this on a black and white TV :)
professorgascan 28 Jan 2022 15:07
Any tips on how to get the rings at the end of Crystal Egg 2? I always end up on 199 and can't reach those last rings near the birds
professorgascan 2 Feb 2022 08:17
Got there in the end. Really enjoyed mastering one of the first games I owned. Cheers to the devs.

I really like this SMS version of Sonic 2, it's a great Sonic game that is often overlooked. I'm surprised so little people have mastered the set, so to help I've made some videos covering all the Ring Hoarder and 1-Up Monitor achievements. They can be found at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfZbxnFekfWix6rIGmRl6v0OcwJ2e0Cgo with the relevant timestamps in the video descriptions.
