    Another easy one (this game is full of easy ones), it can be earnt on any level, including the very first.

    Whilst playing the game you will undoubtedly come across a little sign post with a star on it which, when crossed, will cause it to spin and make a noise (and save your progress in that level).

    All you need to do is be sure you have 50 or more rings when you do pass it and it will make a ring of stars appear above it, jump into it and you'll be transported to a bonus stage in the form of a gumball machine.

    Your aim is to get to the top using the springs on the side and activate the machine, it will drop a sphere with different letters and colours - you need to keep doing it until you can collect a blue sphere which will give you a bubble shield.

    Octobot SuperIt's strange that they make you collect a bubble shield for the achievement. You'd think that they'd make you go for the 1UP sphere, which is much more rare, and requires you to get through most of the bonus stage. I hate the bubble shield.

    x2iAgreed but I reckon it's because Sonic is blue and they were following a theme perhaps. Who knows?

    I know i'm kinda commenting on this like 5 years later but in my opinion this is the only achievement you could miss when completeing the game.

    You first need a total of 50+ Rings, then find a Checkpoint. Once done the checkpoint will flash a ring of stars which will spin around in circles (like Sonic The Hedgehog 2). Jump into the ring, and you will be taken to the Bonus Stage.

    The Bonus Stage has springs placed all over and there is a large capsule full of power-ups. Simply let your character touch the lever, and it will twist and reveal a power-up.

    One of the power-ups should be a Blue Gumball with the letter B on it. This is a Water Shield Power-Up. Grab that and you will get the achievement.
