Great game. A very good method to avoid the sprite overflow problem :)

But the physics behind jumping (slow increase in jumping speed) is really annoying. Why not doing it like in SMB?

What method are you referring to?

Also, what is a corshoneta?

The coins are not permanently in one position in OAM, they are constantly changing. Thanks to this they all flicker when there are a lot of them, but they do not disappear completely from the screen.

Probably it has been used many times before, but I did not notice it before.

Besides, I do not know many interesting things about NES programming yet.

That's... well, the standard way to do it. Hardcoding objects to OAM is a very bad thing to do, and only absolute beginners will do it.

Surely you meant smb3? I don't like smb physics. Who cares what I like? My point is, it's personal, and the physics in this game didn't bother me at all, every game has its own.

I agree, but I'd still note that for instance when I reverse engineered Rad Racer I was surprised to see that some of the sprites for e.g. the status bar and the main car (the one you drive) are actually hard-coded in OAM.

In my prototype nes game I hardcoded the main characters sprites into OAM so it wouldn't flicker, only other objects would. I think it's ok to choose what to flicker and what not to.

Yeah, often it's perfectly sound to hard-prioritize what you think is the most important to view at all times.
