The word 'special' must be an euphemism.
17 Feb 17:09 2019
It certainly ain't normal
9 Mar 15:08 2019
infinite lives glitches :)
9 Mar 15:30 2019
Infinite live glitch or just a trick? Most mario games have a way of getting lots of lives intentionally. If it's bouncing on koopa shells, then be careful past world 6 or 7, I can't remember, I couldn't find any opportunitiesto do the trick anymore.

I found a way to get infinite lives in 8-4. Unfortunately, that infinite lives spot is near impossible to use and there's some near frame perfect jumps before it. Like, I got there 5 times with ~50 lives.

This works perfectly on retroarch
23 Mar 3:13 2020
