Personally I couldn't be bothered with that so I wound up using some lives cheat to beat the game. I had a lot more fun that way.
What lives cheat?!?!? Is that the one that Wombat posted about on his blog? I tried to do that, but it didn't work for me. I'm sure I did something wrong, but I don't know what. Would you could step-by-step it for us, better then was done on that blog entry? I really just want to beat it on easy in any way possible so I can unlock the challenges and then extras.
