A well known NES error. Come up with something more... unknown and the stars will increase.

Besides the fact everyone knows this, it's neither a flaw or epic. (Neither Holy or Roman, or an Empire)

you half-fail the epic fad.

:\ everyone knows about that.

I should be burned alive for not knowing about that until now.

to the people complaing about this being an old trick... i know it is.. the game is 20 some odd years old but in part two youll see something you mostly likely havent seen before
June 19th, 2006

Yeah, this is pretty old. Excellent animation, though. :)

so much f*ggotry on ytmnd, as usual. i'm going to 5 you, just because i hate the downvoters. "a well known nes error" my ass. only to geeks that spend all their time in their parents' basement discussing video games on internet bulletin boards. i've seen this glitch done before, but totally forgot about it. thanks for the nostalgia. here's your 5, cockf*g.
June 19th, 2006

lmao, 5 for pissing people off
June 19th, 2006
(0)
3 for effort, but everyone knows about this, geek or not. Also more pertinent is that it is not terribly entertaining as a YTMND.
June 19th, 2006

3'd, it was on G4 like two weeks ago, so it isn't that entertaining to me, like you wanted it to be. Nostalgic, yes. So 3.
June 19th, 2006

Doesn't fit the fad, and won't fid any other fad either.
June 19th, 2006

if it was truly for nostalgia then you wouldnt have included the arrow flashing repeatedly as though it was infact late breaking news. but whatever

Yall a bunch of downvoting f*ggots. Here's a 5. To all you f*gs claiming this is the "oldest trick in the book", get a f*cking life and stop beating it to NES games for street cred.

I remember that. A friend of mine and I thought it was a super-secret and we would go there and try and beat the 'minus worlds' but, alas, you could never get to the end before time ran out.
June 19th, 2006

5'd because it brings back precious childhood memories...i remember me and my bro trying to get to level -1 long ago

It is pretty gay how people give you low ratings because its an old trick. 5 stars.

I actually remember tying to do this when I was younger when I saw it in gamepro magazine. I believe they reffered to it as the minus zone or something

For f*cks sake, it's Ghost Love Score.

lol, that's old school. They call that the "Minus World". Hell, they even told people how to reach that world in a VERY old issue of Nintendo Power.
June 19th, 2006
(0)
Good stuff :)
June 19th, 2006
(0)
I just want to point out it's not really world "negative one." Look at the way it normally is; for example, world 2-1. After going through the tunnel, the first number disappears, leaving the appearance of -1, although it's really more like "world null dash one."
June 19th, 2006
(0)
nice, never knew about it
June 19th, 2006

endless looping negitive level LOL

I think it should have been called Epic Mario Maneuver.
June 19th, 2006

"Epic" fad isn't really funny, though. Sorry.

HELL YES. Sydd is hungry for epic flaws in his games. Ever fall through the cantons in Vivec?
June 19th, 2006

If you go into the middle pipe it will sometimes warp you to 5-1.
June 19th, 2006

Whoa sh*t dude! A game that's probably older than you has a flaw in it?

This was intentional anyway. Called developer testing zones. do the swastika in the trees ok in (marioworld?)

O LOLZ ITZ NOT NEW!111one EVRY1 NOZ IT!!111one Guys, go die somewhere. Awesome YTMND.
June 19th, 2006
(0)
make a ytmnd with mario running and sliding under blocks adn it will be gold
(0)
Oh just to add, it's not "negative" at all... It's just that the world you entered hasn't got a number like World 1 Level 1 would be 1-1... This is -1, plus the fact it loops would just make it a test level for the water stages, even though not used it wasn't removed so when the game enconters and error because you didn't go the normal route, it drops you into this -1 world.

Yes, the never ending World -1. I'll have to try that sometime. And to all the up/downvoters, God forbid someone might have an opinion on this.
June 19th, 2006
(0)
Anyone that played NES as a kid should know about this from word of mouth. It's an easter egg not a glitch. Any YTMND fan should know that this is not epic!
(0)
come on, no more epics.
June 19th, 2006
(0)
I don't see how you can say that's an easter egg, not a glitch. They even fixed it for re-releases.

5 for one thing that made Super Mario Bros. Awesome.
June 19th, 2006
(0)
Cool animation, but very misleading. You use the word "flaws" in the plural, suggesting there are more clips in your YTMND. You just show the one, and it's neither epic nor flawed. Still cool for the memories, though.
June 19th, 2006

I hope they dont think its world NEGATIVE ONE its part one of a world WITHOUT the first number, that is all

four because its classic and interesting. I wish you wouldn't have slowed down the loop though.

Minus World FTW! I've always wondered, who at one point thought "I wonder what will happen if I break these two bricks and jump backwards? Maybe I'll go through the wall and discover a never-ending water level!" :P

This was a terrible ytmnd.
June 19th, 2006
(0)
Ahh, so THAT'S what Minus World is!
(0)
just thought id explain why this happens for people who think this isnt a flaw... there are four exits to world 1-2 one on the right side of the screen and three on the bottom. when you go down a pipe thats not lined up with one of the exits the game doesnt know where to take you. it defaults the world to a blank tile in the game so it looks like "world -1"
June 19th, 2006

were you born in the 90's or somthing? everybody knows about this already.

I don't know why everyone calls it the "negative" world. It's quite clear that the world number is missing, not below zero.

How is this a flaw? It's more of a secret. a flaw or bug would be if it messed up your screen or something, but this is just a secret level. A very well known secret level.

Lol for world -1. 5 for you.
(0)
It's not a programming flaw, it's an easter egg, or a secret area, or something, but I'm pretty sure it's intentional.
June 19th, 2006
(0)
Take it from a Rom Hacker, the game tries to register you as going into level 36-1, but tile 36 is blank so it comes up as -1. The level is really 7-2. Dont fight with me, it's the truth.
June 19th, 2006
(0)
I was a programming error, not intentional. The reason you slide through is because the game thinks you hit the block but you really didn't, so it makes you not solid for a second and allows you to clip into the wall.
June 19th, 2006
(0)
And as we all know, when you clip into a wall in SMB, you slide out to the other side. When you jump into the pipe before it registers it as 4-1 destination, it loads 7-2 with no pointers, and names it world 36-1.

If you're gonna make a YTMND for nostalgia value, you need to design it in a way that feels nostalgic (ie not making an epic themed YTMND.)

If it was a flaw it would not have obviously programmed aspects such as... the plants on the other side of the wall, the pipes, the fact that it's a unique level... how can it be a flaw? It must have been created, like the pokemon secret village or whatever

To Peanut:IT IS A FLAW! Normally you're supposed to go above the wall at an earlier point and go ver the exit pipe to reach a Warp Zone, if you reach the other side without doing that you will enter the Minus World.

"Ghost Love Score" by Nightwish, off of the record "Once". I can't believe one of my favorite tracks is now a f*cking YTMD fad.

I've been there. The weird thing is that when you get to the end pipe in it, it just loops back to the beginning. Oh, and it's not a flaw, it's a feature.

I like how the downvoters either say it's not an error or that everyone knows abou it, despite the description and huge collection of commenters that never knew (like me). 5 to offset.

Just delete the site. It's not a flaw, and you've provided proof yourself. Also, i'd like to point out that game was made how long ago? And what year are we in now? Also, it wasnt epic.
