Well, while jumping on some explosive frogs, it so happened that one blew up the entrance to the black market. I thought to myself "Why not?" But I felt really hesitant. As soon as I stepped out I see 3 shopkeepers bumrushing me, and filling me up with lead. "Huh, guess it didn't wear off." A few 20 tries later, it happened again. I didn't have a mark on me, so I jumped straight in with a Jetpack that I bought.

This is where the fun starts.

Saw that one shopkeeper had a shotgun in his store. Decided to nab it, shoot him in the face, and then jetpack up. I then ran out of fuel, but bounced on a caveman, which knocked a shopkeeper into a man-eating plant. The ankh keeper was bombed 3 or 4 times out of pure spite, then I off-screen shot the hell out of the rest of them. I felt really proud of myself. That is, until after the CoG, where I got my face bashed into the ground by a golden statue.


So, have you ever robbed the Black Market? With what, and how?

I almost ALWAYS rob the black market, unless I'm so rolling in the dough I can buy everything I need. Ultimately its pretty easy, hunt for a guy with a shotgun, or just toss a bomb last second into a shopkeepers face (hint it's even funnier when its a sticky bomb) then just take your time clear out the top two levels of shopkeepers and then bomb down from the ankh store to the exit.

I've tried a couple of times and nearly succeeded too but generally end up dying REALLY stupidly just before I get them all. Eg: accidentally falling into the pit dug out from bombs that they're all in...

I have yet to perfect the art of telefragging. I usually just teleport one square in front of them, then get my face blasted about 20 squares back again.

Trust me. Once you DO find it, you'll want to. It's almost suicide, yes. But it's a challenge, and that's what everybody wants.

It's too tempting not to go, especially when I'm trying to do a  Spelunky Damsel rescue run, I see that Eye, I see the Entrance, I want to go a LOT but shouldn't. Because of  Spelunky Shopkeeper. =( so many goodies, without spending  Spelunky Gold!

That seems like more of a Ghetto shopkeeper than a blind one.  Undecided

Hey, that got me thinking, how about making shopkeepers go blind when you hit them with flares? They would just run around.
How about them having heart attacks when bombs go off nearby?
