Guide: All Pearls category

#Introduction

Hello and welcome to this guide for the All Pearls category which has recently been added to the leaderboard. I made this guide to show how many pearls there are in each level and which chests to avoid because they're empty. Feel free to leave feedback.

In total there are 30 chests: 9 with power pearls, 13 with range pearls and 8 empty chests.

The power pearls enable you to catch fish in a bubble with less shots and to move objects. As far as I know you need one power pearl to move barrels, two power pearls to move small rocks and three power pearls to move large rocks. The range pearls increase the range of your shot which is especially useful in the boss fight of Stage 2.

When you move objects they can sometimes go off screen. You have to swim with the objects to keep it on screen, otherwise it will disappear and you have to swim back to make it respawn. If an object hits a chest it will open it and disappear and won't respawn.

If you die you lose your upgrades and have to reset the run since many pearls can not be aquired without upgrades.
