    It's not quite finished, there are a few things I haven't explained. But I have catalogued 90% of the entire ROM's contents, including all compressed art, level layouts, mappings, palletes and so on.

    Donut Zone is just the game loading non-level data as a level... Or, at least that's what it looks like.

    Well, now we've got people thinking it's a lost level, which is annoying :P

    No.


    The only evidence for a lost zone is the "Mountain Zone" title card, which is more than likely a leftover piece of an unused "Gimmick Mountain Zone" title card.

    But just "Mountain Zone" doesn't fit Gimmick Mountain at all...

    He meant a leftover of "Gimmick MOUNTAIN" instead of the "Gimmick MT." in the final version.

    It could also be from an earlier version of Gimmick Mountain, but something tells me to dobut that.
