Dying while turned to stone
« on: January 18, 2008, 08:33:02 pm »

I didn't see any threads dedicated to this, so sorry if there is, or if it's a known bug already.

If you die while having turned to stone, you'll hear the SE for the kid breaking out of his stone form, and you'll be able to move, invisibly, from where you died.

If you shoot, you can see your shots, so you can actually track where you're going.

This makes it possible to die by medusa head, fall like 4 screens to the bottom of the tower area, and hit the save down there, as an example.

You can't, however, double-jump while this is happening. Otherwise it'd technically be possible to beat the whole game this way. So getting to drac in this state is impossible, or doing anything notable. But it's still worth pointing out.

this has been a "bug" since the earliest version of the game...I was just never part of the forums to point it out.

The same thing used to happen if you did something in The Guy fight.
I have no idea if its been fixed.

Are you sure there isn't just some weird sky leak above your head?

You can use that to fall on the left side of the first screen and collect Birdo's orb without fighting Birdo. Little glitch I came across while attempting Impossible.

It's okay, we've all been literally retarded at some point in our lives.
