Spoiler discussion after the break.
Tom Francis: I got to hell! My second time ever, both on dailies.
I usually don’t rob shops, but that Black Market. There were just so… many… bombs. Everyone had to die. I took the precaution of buying them first, since I wouldn’t need the money, so I could stay up a rope and toss (non-sticky) bombs down on everyone. That worked well. And then, of course, there’s a jetpack in the ice caves.
After an almost completely empty level 1, a pretty generous seed!
Jason Killingsworth: Like Tom said, a surplus of bombs makes all the difference. This daily was my first time cracking the overall top 10.
Philippa Warr: The choreography was sublime. Deadly, obviously, but sublime. What’s the sensor radius on an arrow trap? is it set or is there an element of randomisation?
Marc Laidlaw: I had big plans. Actually, my only hope was to actually get through the process of recording and uploading my first ever demo of anything ever without deafening hiss, and without my family throwing things at me. So this was an unqualified success and nobody had to suffer too long in the viewing of Spelunky department. I have never before tried to talk while playing, so that’s another skill I’ll need to develop. (PS: When I said “arrow” I meant “rope.”) I guess the thing to do is narrate it after the fact…? Anyone do that?
