I popped this in on a whim today, figuring I'd get to the jet ski part and die like always. This time, however, I passed it ON A SINGLE LIFE! It's taken me 20 years to pass this damn stage, and to do it with one life was freakin' sweet!
Then I got to the ice stage and lost all my lives. Continuing sends you back to the beginning, so this is as far as I go. Why is this game so damn hard?
