On the save select screen, what does the counter next to a heart below my save file mean? The counter is still at zero after completing two chapters.

Save file screen with 0 counter

Hearts are a kind of counter/points/reward for cooperative play, if you play online with others. If you jump the flagpole at around the same time, revive, share power-ups, etc. you gain hearts as points.

  • Do people interacting with standees add to hearts, too?

  • @Catija I think, they actually do, but only if they rescue someone. Can't tell for sure.

  • @Catija, only if a ghost touches a standee or owner for the first time for a particular player. Any saves after that does not add any hearts. Sometimes the standee will have to be "activated" first by touching it when you're alive. Commented Oct 29, 2023 at 4:30
