Title: THE BALL & CHAIN IS AWESOME
Post by: ipwnu1337 on October 26, 2009, 08:30:25 PM
In my attempt to make a ball & chain run, I've found out some awesome things.

The ball and chain, when not held, makes you fall faster, and makes you take falling damage more easily.

The ball and chain is an awesome projectile; it can be used as a grappling hook of sorts.

The ball and chain does damage as long as it moves.  I've killed Jaws almost instantly with it.

Enjoy your new ball & chain facts!

Once I almost beat the boss with the ball and chain on my leg, but then I died because the ball & chain got stuck.  I feel sad.

I once got stuck by falling under the platform my ball and chain was on. Ropes saved me though.

You bomb the places where you get cool stuff for puting dead bodys.

Why, does it kill you? Like whipping the damsel in shop? (No one told me the shop keeper murders you for that!)

No it just:
Makes the level dark and summons a ghost.

It spins around you once or twice.  It's awesome with the pitcher's mitt.

My first encounter with the ball and chain was on purpose. And then I died because I fell onto a vertical space and was on one side, while the ball was on the other side. I couldn't move =[
