I am going for win #2 now and I am on the Ice Zone currently so I am taking it slower and making sure I write down 0 for each board after I beat them without dying. Those Ice Cubes may have gotten me and now that I am thinking about things I could have possibly died once the first time I did Open Ocean as well where you just dart across the bottom as there are sharks everywhere and then I may have just respawned and done it again. It shouldn't count as a death when you die and relaod your saved game I don't think. It wouldn't make sense. Thanks for the prompt response JBong. I will let you know how my second attempt goes through. This is a long game for me, I don't understand at all how people beat this in under 1 hr. Like #1 on the leaderboard says 27 minutes, like ya right. I had to use a 28 page guide the whole way because I never beat this game when I had it on genesis and now I know why. LOL.
