Well, uh, you didn't get 200+ kills!
And, well, you used the tunnel man!

The gold trophy is only 120 kills.

But still, I agree, it's a bit like saying Resident Evil is too easy when playing with infinite ammo.

The Tunnel Man is clearly overpowered. Buff the Spelunker.

I'm not the only one playing like that, then! It's nice to know that cheating is fun.

And also eguee, you cleared the requirements with the prize for clearing the requirements. Do it all in one run with the Spelunky man, and THEN you can say it's too easy.

Lol. Actually, this was right after I wiped my data.

So... you chose the tunnel-man, then cleared your data, then did a run?  :-\
I think the only thing that matters is that you are playing as the tunnel man instead of the spelunker...

Yeah, I unlocked tunnel man only recently, and once I found out what he does, i understood why everyone was saying that the tunnel man made it too easy.

Although, to complete ALL of the challenges in ONE run, even WITH tunnel man, that's pretty impressive.


P.S - Are those the Kingdom of Loathing forums I spy in the background? Damn addictive game, I have to say.

But still..

I also unlocked the Tunnelman really recently... I was really excited about him at first, but I soon began getting frustrated with him, due to the fact that he can't "attack" with the pick while jumping, which is something I've gotten really used to when I used the Spelunker...

 . . . Yeah, I guess people have already covered what I would say, but I'll say it anyway.  Eguee, you are the very first person to post a screenshot pulling that stunt in the Spelunky forums (and possibly the world, though I haven't checked any off-site Spelunky discussion and am probably wrong), and because you have proven it to be possible you declare it to be easy.  It looks more like you are proving that the challenges are, in fact, exactly as difficult as they should be.

Guys.

Attack, THEN jump.

As long as you're the Tunnel Guy, on the ground, you can jump while attacking. This allows you to mattock out blocks up to four squares higher than you, but still in the wall.

Here's a challenge I was thinking about - consecutive wins.  Win the game n times in a row, without shortcuts.  How hard is that?  (I only have 4 wins!)

Well, depends. With shortcut guy? Easy. With spelunker? Not so much.

Hey, remember how everyone was bugging me to do it with Spelunky?

I think the next step would be to beat the game blindfolded, with one hand tied behind your back.

Or get a mod and make it an all-dark run.

I have, but I couldn't upload the link in time. When I was about to upload it, my computer got a virus and it crashed.

I did a sub-5 minute run with the ball-n-chain.

Ok ok. Meet all three gold trophy requirements, on a ball-n-chain run.

Good luck

Then I'll only be able to just jump up and down at the beginning of the game.

Okay, eguee, you can have the cape.

Actually these are not really challenges. Just minor inconveniences. But I'm busy right now trying for a greedless pacifist run.

i won two times in a row once.

also, eguee, what is your lowest speedrun time? mine is 3:44
(http://i38.tinypic.com/35i575i.png)
of course, this is a quantitative challenge, and you seem to be looking for a qualitative one

eguee, i speedran in 3:44 with Spelunker. look at my screenshot, i didn't even bother unlocking Tunnel Man after i reset my stats. still thanks, someday i'll try speedrunning with TM and i'll know what to aim for.

(also, you may press F9 ingame to take a screenshot without the window border and use "width=320 height=240" in the IMG tag to make it look smaller in your post)


Title: Re: The challenges are too easy AKA Challenge Eguee
Post by: eguee on October 10, 2009, 08:39:51 PM
Fuck it!
Well, I didn't really use the mattock except for Level 1. So that probably didn't do too much. The fact that you can't mattock in the air really diminishes TM's use.


Title: Re: The challenges are too easy AKA Challenge Eguee
Post by: AresRomanGod on October 10, 2009, 08:53:45 PM
Heh, you still used the tunnel man. He used the spelunker.

Post by: eguee on October 10, 2009, 08:55:57 PM
I used damsel here:
Proof that TM does not shave too many seconds off your run, but an early legal jetpack does.
And so does a compass.

eguee, you rock. in my 3:44 i had no compass and an illegal not-so-early jetpack.
i think that the world would become a better place if we moved our speedrun race from forums to youtube (i'll be able to play and record on my roommate's gaming PC soon, so it'll be possible)
