Yes. The b2-square was a <LOOSE> mating focal point next to the White king and 25 ... ♘c4! brings in the Black a5-knight to coordinate with the Black c3-queen on this target.

White's only defense to the mate threat of 26 ... ♕b2# is to play 26 ♕x♘ so he resigns.

<DarthStapler: Bxf2+ and black is winning>

The statistics at Opening Explorer bear this answer out well. White's choice of fifth move in this game is much better.

  Infohunter: Oh, and yes, as wild and wooly as this 4...Bc5 is, experience has shown that it offers Black good practical chances--a reality which I would agree is counterintuitive.

Despite the stats supplied by <Infohunter>, this verdict is incorrect; 5....Bxf2+ 6.Kxf2 offers no more than a draw against proper defence, though this may be easier said than done. Nunn has done a fair amount of analysis on this, which debunked the above conclusion.
