"Devilish Mode

Oh god this may be the one thing to make me finally not hate this game all I ask is that we can die or at least get booted to the start of the level

The ONLY thing keeping the original from being one of thee greatest platformers ever made imo was basically the inability to truly ever "fail" and therefor that lack of any sense of true accomplishment and achievement at overcoming the odds and "winning" when you beat the game--although it was still up there with the best platformers I've ever played regardless--so the addition of a "Devilish Mode", if it truly fixes that one issue, might just put this into my Top 5 and maybe even Top 3 platformers or all time! Surprised

But, given these fixes, now I really do wish this was coming to Switch too. :-(
