Death #1: Restless Dead level. Found the Black Market entrance, saved the Damsel, and got a cape. Mistimed a jump and landed in a spider web next to a spear trap. Not even sure how.

Death #2: Died robbing the Black Market. Used a ManTrap to set off a Shoppy, freeing up most of their items without angering them, but was still eventually shot anyway.

Death #3: Died fighting a Giant Spider. Fell on top of it, but passed through it instead (thanks, hit detection!).

Death #4: Died stealing the Crystal Skull. The Ghost came from the inopportune side of the crypt, and I failed to slip past it due to the Climbing Gloves I found moments earlier.

Death #5: Frog'd.

Death #6: Killed robbing an armory. Didn't know Shoppy recovered from Pistol shots so fast.

Death #7: Killed by a Shoppy on the first jungle level. I'd robbed a shop on the previous floor, and couldn't escape in time.

Detah #8: Was running too fast in the caves and landed in spikes when I thought I was quick enough to clear them.

Death #9: Killed by a Shoppy in the Black Market. Stomped on a Caveman with Spike Shoes inside one of the shops, and sure enough, the corpse landed right on Shoppy's head.

Attempt #10: Success! I stole a Jetpack on Level 2 and totally got away with it. I found the Black Market and bought the Ankh (no reliable chance of stealing it), got a full satchel of sticky bombs in the ice caves, reached the City of Gold, yeti blendered the cultists to get 99 HP, trashed Olmec, and made off with $1,029,175. It took 46:42, I killed 97 foes, and rescued 9 Damsels. I wish it didn't take finding the best item so early on to pull it off, though. -_-

That last game sounds pretty epic though.

But yeah, it is a little ridiculous how powerful that one item is.

I'm going to attempt this, and it will be streamed.

http://www.twitch.tv/kirby_lord

EDIT:

Holy shit beat it first try. Got the climbing gloves before the ice levels and found a shotgun in a crate. Enabled me to beat the giant yeti scoring a lot of ropes, the shotgun let me kill the mummy so I gained the sceptre early on in the temple.

Had a REALLY close call with Olmec, though. Messed up near the end and almost got smashed.

Video here: http://www.twitch.tv/kirby_lord/b/363668890
Gameplay starts at around 50 seconds.

WOW! Nicely done. It's interesting that you got such good millage out of the climbing gloves, that's an item that usually ends up getting me killed. I seems like I always end up accidentally glued to the wall in front of a spear trap or something.

Yes that has been my experience but I always have trouble in the ice levels so I decided to pick them up this time.

Climbing gloves has always been one of my favourites. FAR better/easier to use than the spring shoes.

I dislike the spring shoes. Maybe I would like them better if they reduced fall damage. Anyways, I really dislike climbing gloves in XBLA. If your sprite comes in contact (AT ALL) with a wall you get stuck. And good job Kirby! I don't think I will do as well as you Tongue

Incidentally, this seemed like a better perk for spike shoes/spring shoes combo in TLS. Thanks for reminding me! I'll update it in six months.

Do you, by any chance, have a backup of that video, by any chance?

A big block of text in the center of the screen telling me that the "broadcast is no longer available on Justin.TV. Check out the channel" is obscuring the view. Sad
