I got three mans!

"Mans" is used to indicate video game lives in many Videlectrix games. Though "life" is the typical industry standard, "man" may be used occasionally (for instance, extra lives being referred to as "an extra man"); the use of "mans" is an example of the deliberately poor English often used to make Videlectrix games feel like the poorly-translated video games of the era they imitate.

In previews, screenshots, or similar situations where the game is not interactive and the number of mans won't change, "3 mans" is normally displayed (Rabbit Algebra obfuscates "3" with the simple algebra problem of 2x=6).
