Bonus Life Loop
sounds like another trope... a 1up a bit after a checkpoint and a bit before a really tricky bit. It's a loop because you get the 1 up, die, get the 1 up, die, get the 1 up... I should probably run that through YKTTW
(maybe later), though I don't think I'd use Bonus Life Loop
, pretty sure I can come up with something better...
Anyways. There is a preexisting term for this One Up Sampo
thing in the gaming community which is Infinite 1-Ups
or Infinite Lives
. It doesn't -necessarily- have to refer to a Cheat Code
that makes your lives never run out, though that's where the name came from. I personally favor Infinite 1-Ups
because it references the 1-Up
items and helps to differentiate it from infinite lives gotten through a Cheat Code
. It's fairly self-explanatory as a title too.
