    I'm sure that you guys who were into the Arcade Scene back in the day know that people have achieved such high levels in certain games that they're no longer playable?

    This is known as a 'Killscreen' and happens because of a number of things. Maybe the developer added a level cap, thinking no one would ever get that far, Maybe the level counter is stored in a single byte, meaning that 255 is the highest level before the game doesn't know how to load the next one correctly.

    Either way, it results in a Killscreen where you can't progress!


    Anyways, beating around the bush there, if you know any cool Killscreens then you know what a killscreen is hahaha

    I'm soon to be doing a video on Killscreen Glitches for my YouTube Channel, and other than the already famous versions of these glitches found in Pacman, Donkey Kong, Duck Hunt (NES), Galaga and Dig Dug, I'm wondering if anyone knows of any others I can mention/ Feature in the video too!

    Would be a great help :) I'll be digging deep elsewhere too, so if you feel I'm being lazy then don't feel inclined to answer ;D
