Indeed, but it's a very valuable technique. Life isn't really an issue when you have 8+ lives (usually by level 4, when playing on easy difficulty).
DJC, I downloaded the new version today and am so happy I don't need to worry when weapons drop down the shaft's
I also found it easier to get the Trophy weapon achievement - I managed to get it on Easy difficulty, but it still requires finding nearly all of the secret areas and the 2 hidden weapons caches.
Erm... not sure how to say this.... I found the extra 2 hidden areas!
They were very cunningly hidden, I had to go through level 5 twice (first time to clear level of bad guys) and only found the first one on a hunch - it's in the same spot I would have put a hidden area.
The second hidden area took a bit longer, but I found it too.
Oh, I also transferred my old scores, deadbodies etc. across with no problem.
