This may be a first in Layer Tennis history, friends. I'm not sure, because I've never actually looked at any of the matches, but has a player ever whipped out a cheat code before?
I'm poring over the rulebook here — ha ha j/k reading is not my strong suit — but I'm not sure what playing the Konami card means to the rest of the game. Does Mig get 30 more lives, as in Contra? Does that mean I need to continue to provide this sterling, insightful commentary for 30 more layers? Because I'll tell you right now that the kid here has a hot date with the commode and then a leisurely evening doing a little cat wrestling. (Stand down, PETA! Nobody gets hurt unless they forget the safe word, which is "mrrrrooow.")
I guess I'll have to make an executive decision here and say that Mig's cheater move entitles him to one (1) bonus point. Enjoy it in good health, my friend! And don't you fret about the fact that there are no points in this game. Or even a point. OOOOH I WENT THERE
Play by play commentary for this match is provided, as it happens, by Joshua Allen.
