I was going through my list of downloaded content, re-licencing stuff to my new 360, when I realised I’d bought this but barely played it. I’d not even managed the spider boss at the end of the first stage.
So I gave it another go, and, if you’ve read the title of this post already you’ll already know, I completed it. It wasn’t actually that hard, so I’m not really sure how I managed to fail so badly on previous attempts. The only time I actually lost all my lives was actually on the section after the end of game boss! Luckily, you can continue from there, and so I soon finished it off.
Netted quite a few achievements in the process too. Aces!
