    Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you,
    The Skull Man Challenge!

    First of all, copy this to a .txt file and then load it in SMBC:
    Code:
    <smbc_save_data>13,1,1,1,0,0,11719,798,1104,380,0,2231,1571,43312,0,4,3,3,3,0,10,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,10,16,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,18,1,0,1,1,0,1,1,1,0,0,0,0,1,1,0,1,1,0,25,1,0,1,1,0,1,1,1,0,0,1,0,0,1,0,0,1,1,1,0,0,1,0,0,0,15,1,0,1,1,1,0,0,0,1,0,0,0,1,1,1,16,1,0,1,1,1,0,0,1,0,0,1,0,0,0,1,1,27,1,0,1,1,0,1,1,0,1,0,1,1,1,1,1,0,1,0,0,1,1,0,0,1,1,1,1,12,1,0,1,1,0,0,0,0,1,1,1,1,14,1,0,1,1,0,1,1,0,0,0,0,1,1,1,19,1,0,1,1,0,1,1,0,1,0,0,1,1,1,0,0,1,0,1,11,1,0,1,1,0,1,1,0,0,0,0,17,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,0,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,10,4,93,12,55,24,0,0,0,0,1,71,1,79,1,54,1,2,0,10,9,87,47,19,11,49,25,75,60,28,4,38,43,26,85,4,9,46,44,70,1,24,1,24,9,87,47,93,11,49,25,75,60,28,1,88,4,34,74,90,94,1,96,3,91,32,14,10,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,10,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,10,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,10,9,112,112,112,112,112,112,112,112,112,0,2,3,10,0,0,11,112,112,112,112,112,112,112,112,112,112,112,1,50,1,8,1,15,3,9,3,8,10,15,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,10,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,37,39,38,40,88,83,68,13,67,1,2,2,0,1,0,0,2,0,7,1,3,0,1,0,1,1,1,3,0,0,0,1,2,0,0,0,5,0,0,0,2,0,0,0,11,0,18,18,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,0,0,1,0,0,0,1,0,0,0,1,0,0,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,1,0,1,0,1,0,1,0,1,0,0,0,0,0</smbc_save_data>
    Now here's your task:

    You must go through The Lost Levels as Skull Man on Normal Mode from start to finish, scoring as many points as you can. But here are some rules:
    • Invincibility, Infinite Time and Bouncy Pits must be turned on!
    • Collecting Fire Flowers and Starmans are allowed.
    • No saving is permitted.
    • No taking any warps.
    • No collecting extra lives! Either collect a 1-up mushroom, or accumulate 100 coins, and you lose!
    • You may change the map skin to whatever you like.
    At the end, post your score here after you're done, either from finishing World D-4 or collecting an extra life. If you did collect an extra life, post what level you were on.

    Good luck! :joy:

    That's.. um, pretty out there, I must say. I might try it out later.

    Interesting challenge. I assume the "no extra lives" thing is because he's already "dead" and collecting lives would "kill" him (like casting life spells on undead enemies in RPGs)?

    That was kinda the point. Yes.

    Anyway, I took on the challenge I set and managed to make it to the end! Here's the result:

    Needless to say, I had a very close call in World 8-1 involving a hidden 1-up mushroom and a nearby hidden Poison Mushroom, but I got lucky and managed to avoid the extra life. :)

    Personally I'm surprised you didn't set it that you had to choose the Water Shield for the Flower upgrade.
    I still haven't gotten around to trying it yet, but I will eventually.
