    :) Helps for Temple practice, doesn't really help when you show up to Olmec with nothing of use!

    @monkehhh - yeah I agree and always start from scratch... All that effort to get that bloody key all that way and open the shortcut and now I never use it lol but as you say goods to practice the temple and boy does it need it!

    Am looking for a few people for my Spelunky leader board. Currently only one person on my friends list plays it, so I hope people don't mind me adding a few of you to bulk it up a bit. Feel free to decline me should you so wish. :-)

    I still play it daily, yegon_EG is my id.

    Word of advice - if you ever, ever, EVER want to top the leaderboard for a day, do NOT add Fish_Monsta or Imagine2345 to your friends list!

    I can't get past the jungle

    The jump in difficulty from the mines is just insane.

    Stick with it, once you know what you're doing it's not nearly as difficult as you think. If I'm really concentrating I get to the Temple quite frequently. Problem is, one moment your mind wanders and you can ruin a good run in seconds.

    Grabbing the vines seems a lottery.

    Press up to coincide with u crossing the vine, seems to work for me. Also go close enough to the tiki trap that the spikes cone out and then jump onto it while theyre retracting..

    Anyone else notice in some of the recent daily challenges, that the levels in the mines have had some unexpected level generation anomalies? Like I'm sure there was a shop with a blocked entrance and another level where you had to use a bomb to proceed to the lower areas.

    Usually, levels allow a direct route through without the need for bombs (and ropes even).

    I could be suffering from Spelunkyvision though...

    Yeah, I deffo remember the blocked entrance to the shop, very odd! I meant to take a screenshot with my phone but forgot.

    As for needing a bomb to proceed, I vaguely remember that too but can't be certain.

    Had probably my best daily run score today ... but I got into the Black Market, and the chance, for my first time, to buy the Ankh ...

    well, couldn't resist...

    once I had spent that, decided to break my golden rule of 'no shopping during daily challenges' and bought 10 bombs, compass, parachute ...

    so in the end, terrible score ( the ghost got me before I got out of the Black Market ... ) :-(

    I was doing so well on yesterdays daily, would have easily topped 50k to be in the top 5 on friends list (that's my successful daily position!) but wiped out on spikes with 3 lives left and 32k ! :(

    Also died stupidly on spikes on today's daily.

    Does anyone else like playing the daily close to 12am so not many people have had their go? I've been number 1 in the world at the end of my run 3 times I think :D :D

    Had my best daily challange run on Saturday (I think) and got to 85th place on the world leaderboards! Yes! Very happy with that.

    Yesterday was doing really well but killed myself in a. Massively apps way.

    I only have around half an hour a day to play any kind of gaming, and it's the Spelunky Daily Challenge that grabs me in every time.

    I'm taking so many more risks than before in an attempt to hoover everything in the early levels. It means that I often end with low scores but when a run comes off it pays off.

    I got in a rut last week of dying around 1-2 or 1-3 just about every time and my daily average dropped a bit, but yesterday scored over 110k I think, even after buying the Ankh. The jetpack & shotgun combo makes the early worlds a breeze. I needn't have bothered buying the Ankh though, because I lost both sets of lives almost immediately on 4-1 (as I do every time).

    Has anyone noticed their daily average increase even when you don't even reach that average score in a day's run?

    I think this is one of my favourite games of all time now, even if I'm still pretty ropey at it and am nowhere near completing a normal run.

    Today's daily was my worst ever. Blindly fell on some spikes within a minute of starting. Barely a cent to my name.

    That's going to hurt my average a bit.

    Still play it every day. Still rubbish. Still love it.

    Absolute gem of a game.

    Got to Temple on the daily two days in a row. Didn't last 10 seconds at 4-1 two days in a row. I really must put some practice in on the shortcut, but is there any point with not much equipment?

    Yes, there absolutely is. The first time I beat the game I started from the Temple shortcut with no equipment :)

    Yes, competing in the daily when it has just rolled over is good for the soul! :D

    Got my best score so far on today's one: 118K!

    I had a go of the plasma gun thing tonight. If I remember, it was in a crate at the end of one of the early levels.

    It transformed a rubbish one-life-left run to allow me to blast the way through the black market and come out the other side with a cache of money and items.

    Alas, complacency kicked in when I thought I'd be at a personal best and blew myself up on 3-3 when thinking of how I was going to make my way past the first ten seconds of 4-1.

    Yay, I unlocked the ninja today. 3 More to go, the Mexican, the Golden Monk and Yang. Yang will probably impossible to get, seeing as you have to defeat the Hell level, and I've only beaten Olmec once so far.

    I always play as the Ninja :)

    Did okay today, was all set for a much better score than I ended up with (142K, 3-2), had gloves(purchased), cape, jump boots, 30+ bombs, 10 ropes. Got frozen by a blasted mammoth in mid air as I landed behind it, smashed on landing GRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!

    Love the daily challenge, always culminates in a filthy swear word and a slightly numb feeling for 30 seconds post death :)

    my games seems to have got a bit confused between the PS3 and Vita (cloud saving) and playing offline ...

    Well, I have been asked a number of times to get the key to the man for the temple shortcut.
    And today - I actually DID IT !!!! - And ... he asked for some bombs instead ...

    I have given him bombs and rope already ... ARGH!!!

    I reached 4-4 for the first time ever in the daily today :D :D :D

    Didn't complete the game though as I wasn't certain of how to do it :( I worked it out but got crushed.

    Pretty hopeful I will be at number 1 on our friend's leaderboard today though. :D :D

    Playing the daily every night seems to have increased my skill loads compared to just playing the game loads normally - I reached 4-3 in an offline run on Saturday and normally I can't get past the jungle when starting from mines.

    I have felt 'in the zone' a few times recently - does anyone else get the Spelunky Zone feeling? A mixture of fear, focus and hyper awareness I think!

    Is there a list of PC Daily Chalengees in this thread as I'd love I bit more leaderboard fodder?

    My ID is Nikirie. Actually thinking about it I'll check out the Eurogamer group to see who's playing.
