Leo's Fortune: Hardcore Mode Contest

Hardcore mode is so difficult that, to date, nobody in the world has completed it! Today 1337 & Senri are issuing a challenge to the Leo’s Fortune community to complete Hardcore mode.

For the next few weeks, if you manage to complete the game in one playthrough without dying, you will be entered into Leo's Hardcore Challenge. All participants must email a photo of themselves with the secret that unlocks after beating Hardcore mode, along with their GameCenter ID, to contest@leosfortune.com to be entered.

Each entrant who completes Hardcore mode will have their named added to the "Hardcore Players Club" in the credits where it shall remain forever! One grand prize winner will be chosen at random to win a 16GB iPad mini (Wi-Fi). Two runner-up prizes of $100 iTunes Gift Cards will also be awarded to entrants chosen at random.

Complete rules are at http://www.leosfortune.com/contest-rules/

Sounds very interesting. I've heard good things about the game but I haven't try it yet. So you're saying no one has completed this task yet? Is this even doable?

One of the devs said he got to the last level.
Yeah nobody beat this challenge. I could manage up to level 14/20 with the number one having 16/20 IIRC. Not so easy.

Are these the same rules as listed on the contest website. The one play through comment seem different than what's listed on the website.

Hardcore mode is not necessarily very difficult in theory, but in practice you need to keep your focus all the way through the game. You usually don't die from the tricky bits, but instead it's the parts where you feel confident that will get you. A false sense of security can easily get you to drop your guard.

My advice is to play through the game in normal mode first and list all the parts that you find difficult. Then you practice on each of those segments until you've mastered them. Usually you can go through a segment and then kill yourself at the end to restart right before it. That way you can practice a segment over and over without having to restart the whole level.

In the end it's down to how much you've practiced. If there are a number of segments where you will die 50% of the time, then you need a lot of luck to beat Hardcore. But if you improve your skill so that you only die 10% of the time, you have a pretty good shot.

There is no difference. Hardcore mode is beating the game without dying in one playthrough (which is unlocked after beating the game normally).

This is about half right. The contest itself is open to everyone to get your their placed in the credits. But due to legal regulations, we must restrict prizing to the US.
