The continue is a mode that allows Rayman to continue the game even if he has lost all his lives. It is available in the original Rayman game, the Game Boy Advance version of Rayman 3 and the Game Boy Advance version of Rayman Raving Rabbids.
A clock is found on the continue screen after Rayman loses all his lives. The clock, like most characters in the original Rayman game, is limbless. His hands are set to 2 and 10. If Rayman accepts his offer for a continue, he starts dancing uncontrollably. If Rayman instead declines or if no continues are left, he looks tired.
In the PC version it shows how many continues are remaining on the save file selection screen. These clocks are given to the player at the start of the game and new ones can not be earned through normal gameplay. The only way to earn more is by using cheats. Different versions have a different starting amount. In the PlayStation version, Rayman starts with five continues.
The continue screen is seen again in the Game Boy Advance version of Rayman 3. If Rayman loses all his lives, a screen appears where he is playing basketball with his body. If the A button is pressed in a time of 10 seconds Rayman will score and the player will repeat the level, if it is not, Rayman will go away and the player will return to the main menu. Unlike the original Rayman game, there are infinite continues.
In the Game Boy Advance version of Rayman Raving Rabbids, there are infinite continues like the Game Boy Advance version of Rayman 3. The screen now shows Rayman slowly walking on a dirt road towards the right side of the screen with a wooden sign with a house on it pointing the other way.
