Wait a second! ....where does that sprite of the KO-ed seagull (or duck?) come in? From what I remember it only ever flies in front of you and then flies off. Can you... knock it out somehow or is that unused?
Yeah but it's not really that challenging to me anymore. ^^'
Like... I don't ever really die in S-Hard mode anymore and I don't think I've ever missed a collectible either.
Nowadays I just make it harder by attempting perfect money runs. ...or at least as close to perfect as possible. (Those fish inside the Sunflower can suck my nads. )
