When you enter Press Garden Act 1, look for the first ink container you see (that spawns the hopping badniks) stand next to it and do a spindash to kill the badnik. Let go of your spin dash and let another badnik come out. and repeat. The points will start stacking up to give you free lives. (This is akin to Sonic 3's Launch base bird Infinite Lives trick) Note: You cannot hold the spindash down, you must release in between for another badnik to spawn. Alternatively, using Super Sonic you can stand there and do the same.
