    Either that, or the shield was on you constantly, with no way to get it off.

    What if there were levels where you needed a lightning shield to double jump to a platform, forcing the players to keep the shield, and at the same time try to avoid getting too close to rings with the magnetic radius?

    Small bug, for example I know I'm only a couple of rings from game over.
    I see a nice tasty 10-ring box, I take it and because it gives me 10 lives I loop past 0 and have small amount of lives again.

    Had good fun with this hack, well done :(

    Been fixed for awhile now. Actually I fixed all possible ways to make the counter loop over...
     
  8. I made it to CNZ on my first try XD
     
  9. I got to CPZ act 2 then dead. LOL I was right in the middle of the loop going towards the first goal post before the final boss and I died right in the middle of it. It was actually pretty fun to find out how fast you could get a game over. Now I'm working on going through the levels slowly and carefully and avoid getting too many lives. I look forward to the final release of this.

    No, I am not working on any hack, fanart, or website.
    You can die in EHZ Act 2.

    Actually act 1. :P
     
  12. LOL I have no doubt, especially if you hit the ring boxes along the way.

    WolvGambit: Do you mean how sudden it is, or how early in the game? Because it still gets me every time when I'm moving at top speed, and everything just suddenly stops, and I get a game over.
     
  14. A little of both actually.

    I haven't really got into this all that much because I plain suck at it. XD I made it to ARZ2 and never have made it further. Great ideas though, I definitely love the direction you're taking with it.

    Just thought I'll let you know, I tried this on real hardware and it works as expected. :specialed:

    This seems like a very interesting and unique modification, is this to be played via emulator? or would one play it via a different method?

    You can play it any way you like. I play it on an emulator, but as Alan just said, it works on real hardware as well.

    Wow, this is truly a great and unique hack you've made here. I noticed no one has completed Hill Top Zone Act 1 with 0 rings yet. Just letting you all know that I did it so its possible. These are the levels I've been able to get 0 Rings on...

    Emerald Hill Zone: Act 1
    Aquatic Ruin Zone: Act 1
    Aquatic Ruin Zone: Act 2
    Casino Night Zone: Act 1
    Hill Top Zone: Act 1
    Mystic Cave Zone: Act 1
    Mystic Cave Zone: Act 2
    Oil Ocean Zone: Act 1
    Oil Ocean Zone: Act 2
    Sky Chase Zone
    Wing Fortress Zone
    and of course Death Egg.

    Unassisted by save states or cheats after several attempts I was able to complete the game with 67 Lives. I found that Metropolis was the most difficult to avoid rings on.

    Anyways, thanks for this game, very enjoyable and will be looking for updates ;]

    How is HTZ act 1 possible..? What about the first loop when you go down into the tunnel? There are rings in there....
