    To get this you must earn an S-Rank on every one of the main stages in the game. 9 zones, with 2 acts each, means you need a total of 18. Rival/Boss stages don't count, and neither do Challenge stages. This isn't nearly as difficult as it sounds, as this game is FAR more lenient with S-Ranks than previous Sonic games were.

    Basically, all you need to do is get through each stage relatively quickly -- under 6 minutes is generally fast enough -- without dying. You don't need to rush too much, so if there's a section you struggle with, don't be afraid to slow it down a bit to make sure you don't get yourself killed.

    Chances are, you'll get a lot of them just playing through the game normally. Not dying is REQUIRED for an S-Rank, but if you die, I recommend you finish the stage anyway if you need to practice. If you've finished the game, you should be able to get most of them within a few tries.

    The only stage I personally had trouble with was Rooftop Run Act 1, mostly because of that stupid clock segment near the end of the stage.

    Good luck!

    HeyMrBassman@Reefer420ATK - No it doesn't mess anything up, but it does for some reason use up one of your lives, meaning once you're at 0, you have to exit to the white space anyway. Strange bit of game design there, seeing as you get infinite continues anyway.

    SmokingBmbr465For Rooftop Run Act 1, I recommend Super Sonic as your skill load out. It means that you won't get much of a rings bonus, but it makes the last portions trivial

    For Crisis City Act 1, I recommend the lightning shield or the fire shield

    To obtain this achievement you just need to obtain an S-rank on each of the 18 stages (9 per act). If you want an S-rank you need around the following times for each section.

    The first 2 sections with Green Hill, Chemical Plant, Sky Sanctuary, Speed Highway, City Escape and Seaside Hill you need to finish roughly under 4 minutes without dying and with about 30 rings left. The third section gets ramped up a bit though with Crisis City, Rooftop Run and Planet Wisp. If you want to get an S on these you will need to finish under 5 minutes. Strangely enough though i got an S-Rank on Planet Wisp Act 1 with a time of 8:13.51 so you could give yourselves a buffer there.

    The one's i had the most trouble with was Crisis City Act 1 that took a lot of time to get used to. The best thing i can suggest is practice and always look for new routes. And go up in the stage as much as you can the higher you go the faster you get there!

    Big Bang - 50G (Original Achievement)

    Difficulty: 4/10

    To get this Achievement, you must get an S Rank on all 18 Acts in the game.

    To get an S Rank, you MUST NOT DIE. That is the main key to this as well as getting to the goal as fast as possible.

    I recommend two ways to do this.

    1. Go through the levels and get a feel for them. once you know what you're up against, or once you've found enough shortcuts to feel confident, go for it.

    2. Believe it or not, I actually got most of my S Ranks while going for my Red Star Rings. I watched SadFaceGaming on Youtube and ran to where they were, getting each Red Star Ring, and pausing the game when I watched to see the next RSR's location. Doing this will force you to move faster than you think your going, and take shortcuts you probably didnt know about, making your S Rank easy. (Just remember to pause between RSR's!)
