To open a gold crown level you must earn all 10 gold crowns in a set of 10 levels. To earn a gold crown you must collect all 10 bananas and finish in the time limit without dying. Unfortunately, if you die on a level you lose the chance to earn a gold crown even if you exit the game, open it again from the Xbox tab and load your game in progress. Luckily, there is a trick to make it a bit easier. If you lose a life just lose your remaining lives and use a continue. When the level starts hit the windows button and restart the game from the Xbox tab. When it asks if you want to continue your game in progress hit yes and you will start with all your lives and continues that you had when you started the level. The best part is you'll also see the banana counter (0/10) in the bottom right corner has reappeared. If you quit before using a continue you will not see this counter under the level number when you reload and it will not count as a gold crown even if you meet the requirements. Also, I haven't tried earning a crown after using my first continue to see if it counts because the counter appears at start but then vanishes. If anyone can confirm I'll edit. I do know that if you use a second continue, the counter reappears and it will count but quitting after the first continue is quicker and saves your lives. So to recap, if you die at any time in a level just lose all lives, use a continue, quit out once level restarts and reload game (and continue game in progress) from Xbox tab. If you are quick enough, you can exit a level before a fall is counted as a death. As suggested by Buckswana in the comments, you'll want to use the back button to pause before using the windows button to exit as there is a short delay when using the windows button alone. If you hear the voice say fall out then it's too late and you'll need to repeat the process of suiciding, continuing and quitting to make the counter reappear. This is still kind of a pain in the ass but this should make it a bit easier. This game could REALLY use an individual level select! Good luck.

Thought I'd out up a updated guide which wasn't all jumbled up and make it easier to follow.

unlock all crown levels. Okay this requires you to collect all 10 bananas in all 20 stages of every level without the timer hitting 0 and without dying.

there is no level select but you can easily get to what level you need a crown on if you miss.

if you happen to fall off or die during a run you can no longer get a crown on that run. UNLESS you suicide till you lose all your lives. When this happens, hit continue, then when the game starts back up, hit your windows button, then start the game up again from the Xbox tab.

doing this will make you restart whatever level you were on with all your lives and the chance to obtain a crown again.

another way is if you know you are going to fall off or not reach the goal in the 60 seconds is to hit the back button to pause the game, then windows button. Then restart the game from Xbox tab and select yes to continue. If you're falling off the map and it says fallout, then you must do the suicide all lives option. But anytime during the game if you want to restart that level you can.

far east does NOT count towards this.

if you go through and miss a few crowns don't worry. Just restart the world back up take note of which number crown you need. (it goes from bottom to top, so top crown is level 10,20, and bottom crowns are level 1,11.)

say you need the crown only in level 9, well go through the world and just head for the goal, no need to worry about bananas or dying. Once you get to the level you need, the windows and back button tricks still apply if you need them. Finish any remaining levels just to be safe.

all in all this took me not even 1 day of constant playing.
