Hi!

Is the glitch 'more continues' and 'Invincibility' allowed in the any% first loop category?

About them:

More continues:
"Push in a clockwise circle to get free continues. Keep going in circles until time is about to expire, then hit button 1. This can earn you up to 12 continues. You don't have to get all 12 in one try. When those are expired, push the pad counter-clockwise to bring up the sound test. Hold button 2 and go right to sound 62. Play it 3 times then exit the test. Then resume the clockwise circles to earn more continues. After getting 30 more, you will need to replay sound 62 3 times again to get more."

Invincibility:
"You need to have 2 controllers and plug them both in. With the system off, on controller 1, hold Down-Right, and on controller 2, hold Up-Left + Button 1.
Turn on the system. After R-Type finishes flashing across the screen, you can let go.
This usually takes a few tries to accomplish."

Hi!
Nice cheat codes. I never knew!
Sorry cheating is not allowed.
I know that the game is rough without those cheats 😕

sorry to bring it up again, but this game is proving to be very challenging for a lot of our members. Could you maybe make a category where the player can be invincible so we can at least get some runs going? It's our first game for our event and if we leave everyone hanging they'll probably not be too excited. Misc would be okay too, if necessary. I think with godmode at least a few people will try running it and in the future do a real run, but that's up there. Thanks for considering

Created the Misc "Invincibility mode".

Just make sure to always mention that it is used in title of the run.
