    Totally agree. It's the only thing I feel like playing!

    How well does the save-syncing between Vita and PS3 work? I haven't tried that yet.

    I can't get the shotgun to the digger guy. Most of the time it's not even available to me to buy in the shops and when it is it's right at the start of the first level when I have no money for it. So frustrating.

    A helpful tip when in the mines:

    Sometimes mine levels have deep pits (for want of a better description), in them which will always have a mattock buried at the bottom. Well worth carefully making your way down one in order to collect gems/ gold/ save on bombs.

    @Derblington

    It's been mentioned here earlier but if you missed it, the easiest way is to bomb a grave with ASH written on it, there's always one in an undead level

    To all those who need a shotgun: when you are in the jungle levels and get a "dead are restless" the level then you can bomb a gravestone ( not the RIP ones ) and get the shotgun from there

    Doing better now. I almost always make it to at least the jungle levels.! Very moreish one more go feel to it!

    *EDIT* Just googled because I couldnt remember what one was needed for the shotgun The gravestone you need has "ash" written on it and has a randomly generated chance to apprear
    Quoted from a few pages ago for Derblington :)

    ARGH. First time I've ever reached the Ice Caves, got to 3-4 with one life remaining, got down and could see the exit. Couldn't see any other option so dropped off to land next to it - it must have been one block too far. Died next to the exit leading to the Temple. :(

    I got the shotty to the dude and unlocked the shortcut! Cheers for the 'Ash' tips.
    On the same life, I breezed all of level 3 and entered level 4 to be greeted by a dark level and pretty much insta-died within 30 seconds.

    Getting the key to the tunnel man is quite the enormous challenge. I seem to do really well until I hit a dark level. Those dark levels are hard enough without that extra layer of challenge!

    Also, don't you just hate it when a character-containing coffin finally appears and you die before you can reach it!

    It's hard to imagine I could ever tire of this game :)

    I need to do that too, now Roddy. Haven't tried it yet, though.

    The ice caves were relatively nice compared to some of the previous levels, but the temple seems full of surprises! Are there many more levels left?

    @santashi Nope, that's the last world. The last main world anyway - there are a few secret areas dotted around. :)

    Oh! Thanks, I hadn't realised I was so close. I know I've got lots of things left to discover in it, though, as you say. Plus it's fun just to mess around in! :)

    Managed to get the key to 2-3 last night! That's great, but such a long way to go!

    Managed to get the key all the way! I just kept on my toes and didn't make any mistakes with the traps, and the ice caves was pretty straight forward (it really helps to have a compass so you don't accidentally wind up on an unescapable island). reached 4-1 with like 7 or 8 hearts, 10+ bombs and rope. Got squashed by one of those moving blocks...

    The biggest problem when trying to traverse with the key is the games insistence to give me fucking dark levels. I don't need that shit.

    Yeah, if you're carrying the key then you're likely to get landed with dark levels and have to have to make a leap of faith at some point. Usually into spikes or a tiki trap. :p

    The vita version is tiny, don't get me wrong it's perfect, but it's size makes it much more difficult.

    So. What are those locked doors in the temple? I have a horrible feeling they will react to another key carried from the mines journey......

    Do those big stone heads in the ice levels do anything? I've tried bombing them and a few other things but no reaction. They look like they're going to do something. :p

    Haven't discovered myself, but I think that door leads to the City of Gold. Basically, the item you get when you unlock the chest with the key in the mines? That's part of what you need to unlock it, from what I've read (and I didn't read any further!).

    Did anyone else find that there's a really sharp difficulty spike once you reach the Jungle levels? I'm approaching 100 deaths now and have only reached the Ice Caves once. I almost got to the end of that section as well with no where near as many problems as I'm having in the Jungle levels. I'm getting close to giving up on the game now because I'm not getting any closer to unlocking the second shortcut...

    Keep at it. Each world has its unique thing. Once you acclimatise to that it's not so bad. Temple seems almost impossible at first.
