Title: So, in a strange turn of events...
Post by: ArticunoX on November 28, 2009, 09:10:38 AM
The first time I made it to the final boss was on an "i'll try but i know i'll fail" ball-n-chain run.
Without a jetpack.
I YASD'd against him.
Is something wrong with me?

It seems you get what you need when you don't want it, or intend to really try. It's all part of Spelunky's torturous mind games.

I managed to get 3:33 with a damsel unintentionally.
I never got a jetpack on level 1/2 since. Except for, I think, my 2.4 mil gold run.

And then I just got to the final boss for the second time with a jetpack and scepter. I won. Unlocked the Sun room in the process.

The good part, or the bad part? 'Cause that bad part did happen to me, it really sucks.  :'(

It seems people get mad when they don't get jetbacks in the frist area. I have played over 800 times and gotten a jet back... mabey 6 times.

I've never gotten a Jetback before in the entire game. Wow, you must be very lucky.

Seriously? With the millions of games you've played, you've never come across a shop selling a backpack or fought the giant alien?
Wow, shows what plain dumb luck could do to you.

Oh. I didn't notice it said "jetback", my mind likes to fix the things that don't make sense before I even notice!

I also just realized that I wrote backpack instead of jetpack XD

you mean you have never gotten the jetback? it's much better then the jetpack.
