A Series Of Retrospectives

Three, three, three. The ugly stepchild, the neglected child, the annoying child. A game that nobody wanted. So, the SNES was on its last legs, and the N64 was the new craze. So Dixie was given the worst possible companion for a tag team that re-enforced gender stereotypes. So the game introduced ro...

Re: Castle Crush Soft-Locks

Re: Castle Crush Soft-Locks

I knew that the crash glitch wouldn't work in Mudhole Marsh, I've done this one before. The reason I brought it up was because maybe there's a clue into how invisible objects were handled. Consider the following: 1. Mudhole Marsh is a horizontal level, Castle Crush is vertical. 2. Mudhole Marsh requ...
