Of course 127 would be my first choice for no reason! 4, 8, 16, 32, and so on are all holy numbers, along with relatives, retainers and heroes like 0, 1, 2 and 127. 127 is the sister of 128, a noble who fathered the mighty 256.
My dementia aside, yes, Cave Story was created in C++.
Actually it dosn't delete it and you can cheat to have max health which the cap is 255 the best you can get there.Might have been during beta testing god power privilege's but they still only had 255 so the maximum damage anything can do is death spikes,3 hits to kill if 255 health it could have helped.two hits=254 health helpful during beta testing think bout' it
I suspect that the player damage logic matched the enemy damage logic when the spike damage value was originally set. Or Pixel simply forgot that the logic of the two were different, as Bionicobot suggested. But I very much believe that the number being the max signed 1-byte integer is significant.
