Ending requirements
The game has a hidden points counter to determine the ending the player receives when completing the game. This tally increases every time the player is hit during gameplay, and every time they lose a life. Dying ingame increases the tally signifigantly faster and thus is an easier metric to determine what ending the player will earn when they complete the game.
