    Any Difficulty, No Continues allowed
    Special Rules: Your scoring attempt ends when you either lose your last life or complete the game. Your final total will be what is displayed under Total, as you technically don't keep the money in the stage until you go back to Duckburg and deposit it all. Remember: Different difficulty levels yield different money amounts. YOU MAY ONLY COLLECT EACH EXTRA LIFE ONCE! [This is due to a bug where they may reset in a level]

    There is a lot of time between 1:05 and 2:45 where you appear to avoid collecting diamonds while also sometimes collecting diamonds.

    If there is a technique that can net more lives than you lose, whether or not you choose to collect the rewards, then it is leeching.

    Can someone elaborate to me how extra lives are earned in this game?

    Nevermind they’re just not dropping diamonds. And lives are earned only through pickups (had to text someone about that). I’m still watching but that part seems good.

    Yeah lives are set in chests, but they can "respawn" so the challenge states I can only pick them up once. There are a total of 8 extra lives, and you start with 3, so you can have 11 lives total (but only 9 at a time).

    For my run this translated into:
    -Start with 2 Lives
    -2 Lives in The Himalayas (1st trip) [4]
    -2 Lives in the African Mines (1st trip) [6]
    -Lost 5 lives on The Moon [1]
    -2 Lives in Transylvania (2nd trip) [3]
    -2 lives in The Amazon (2nd trip) [5]
    -Lost 5 lives on The Moon [0]

    It wont let me edit, I meant to say you start with 2 Lives and can have 10 lives total.

    Don't worry, that's intentional: nobody has edit access in the submission threads. :)
    Lots of 1sts to be surpassed: what are you waiting for? Play the game, submit the score...

    Holy cow, that's a long one. This is out of my ballpark to adjudicate but: Welcome to Twin Galaxies. :D

    Congrats dude! I am glad you got around to recording this. My base level checks all look good. I just have to watch the whole thing and man is it long! I will probably do that today and barring anything I find it will be a yes vote from me.

    Yes, someone else finally discovered this little gem of a technique! I was meaning to do this about 4-5 years ago but never got around to it. Congrats on this! The only bad part about this strategy is that it will literally come down who gets the best RNG on the diamond drops at some point for the top spot.
