You need to collect a certain number of coins in certain levels to make one appear (…), but there are a couple fun things about it

Wow, I never knew. That was so fascinating. Thank you for sharing! on 28 Sep 2023 11:13 +0000

Ditto! I’ve been playing with 8-bit assembly programming and it’s fascinating how this mechanic was implemented in just a couple bytes of level data. on 28 Sep 2023 11:35 +0000

So is the mechanic for the coin ship implemented the same way? on 28 Sep 2023 14:36 +0000

I think there’s more to the coin ship, that unfortunately isn’t covered in the article. I know for a fact that the hammer bro on the World 1 map turns into a coin ship if you finish 1-1 with 55 coins AND end the level with time remaining being an odd number.
