Regarding starting over, I think it is a lot to ask the beginning
player to work through the entire level again each time they die on
mode, wouldn't it be enough to start them one room back from where they
on the old side scrollers of my youth, you didn't have to start over at
if you died in most cases.
Well, i've seen it go both ways. I seam to recall Super mario Brothers
put you back at the beginning of the level when you died. Not only that
but the level got reset so you had to fight the same traps, enemies, etc
all over again. That could be a big score builder, but also added
challenge to the game. That is why I have elected to start over at the
Also one more note. For those players who don't like going back to the
beginning of the game once I get the save and load game feature added to
standard mode those gamers can simply load from where they died and try
again. So in a way you get the best of both worlds here.
