Although there is one catch: If you collect 50 coins, the game is over... so you will have to avoid to collect coins, but that's a little tricky, because the game sometimes has you begging to come across some nickels to get an extra life. It is certainly harder than it looks.
Granted, this makes the game remarkably easier, but this is also really cheap and an undeniable cheat. But c'mon, we deserve this! This is same game that has made the facepalm a reflex action on us (plus, I'd like the opportunity to show-off a bit here, rather than my usual self, who can't seem to stop sweating the controllers) XD!
