I just finished level 2 and I didn't completely die at all.
In a couple spots I restarted my last checkpoint because I thought there were items I missed but thought I could get to if I did restart it. Then there were a couple spots where I restarted simply to see something I skipped and thought I could get items/orbs. Do those count as deaths?
I fell quite a few times, mainly from screwing around to see if I could do certain jumps or timings with the hooks, but I ended the level with 12 deaths...but didn't think I fell that much either.
So what counts as the death stat? --- Lets Go: Lions, Red Wings, Tigers, Pistons!
