Sonic Unleashed Forum  /  New category I've been working on.

So I've spent the last week or so routing and grinding out a new category I've invented for this game called "ALL MEDALS".

Basically the goal is to get all 400 sun and moon medals in the game as quickly as possible.

Time starts upon hitting yes after selecting new game in the menu (like any%), and ends upon collecting the last medal.

The run I did last night took 11:02:54

However, I should be able to get this down to sub 10, maybe even a sub 9, without too much trouble. The time loss was due to a bad Skyscraper Scamper Night 1, Jungle Joyride Day 1 and Arid Sands Night and Day 1.

I currently don't have a capture card to record a run with. However I have a route on google docs that I'll be posting either later tonight or tomorrow, for anyone who is interested in running this category.

Also a fun fact. For those that hate Eggmanland. You can completely avoid having to go to Eggmanland all together as there's no medals in Eggmanland, and all the souvenir medals can be obtained without souvenirs from Eggmanland

Hope this becomes a category because it's quite fun and you get to see all the cool bonus levels.

Joshua Sakeld did a few runs of this category before, you can find some links from here

Ye this category has been a thing for years already, Josh is the only one who tried to run it somewhat seriously, but even then noone ever cared enough to want a leaderboard. Current record is what Iden linked, it's 4:43

The route he used did end up beating the game to unlock Eggmanland souvenirs though, so I'm surprised to hear it's possible without it. I imagine you'd need every single Wentos souvenir? If true it's interesting and a big potential timesave, albeit an extremely luck reliant one.

Josh already invented it and has been a thing for years I think the only reason it's not a category yet is they don't want to put a category where it has few to no people running it, considering that josh and zzz are the only ones that even did a run on this it'll only have 2 people and feel quite empty it'll have to catch interest in more people before they decide to add it

Oh I didn't know it was already a thing, surprised the record is that low. According to the FAQ I used to figure out the medal locations, the Pickle medals are luck based. He either gives you a medal or an art book or a record. So I assume that with good RNG you could get them without Eggmanland. This might not be the case however, I only started running this game seriously a few weeks ago.

Also sorry I took Josh's credit lol. His time makes mine look shit lol.

Just a little correction, I too have done a run (7:05:45 according to my splits from early 2015), though I seem to have lost the video so it wouldn't help filling up the boards. I wanna say Frokenok has also done a run but not sure. But yeah it's definitely existed for a longer time.
Same can be said for 100%, though at least I have a video for that one

I've done 2 semi-blind "runs" too and got to like 8 hours There's plenty of runs around for a leaderboard, it's just that most of the runs were just non-serious one offs and noone cares enough to want to request a board. Still curious about the pickle medals though cause I thought they were consistent with amount of souvenirs gifted.

Edit: also to make a correction from my earlier post, seems zzz took it down to a 4:37 😮
