I can handle the Yetis now, I'm tring to work out how to deal with the UFO's!

@DeLGato232, VirtualBox is like an emulator, that emulates an imaginary seperate PC, that you can install various OS's onto (you need the original install disks or ISO's though). It runs as an app in a window, in whatever OS you are using normally.

Like, some people use it to run XP or Vista apps from within Wine or all those crazy Linux OS's. I run Vista normally, but I have VirtualBox set up with an XP install. Somehow, Spelunky will run on the virtualised XP machine, but not under Vista directly. I'm still unclear if its a hardware or Vista issue, but the VirtualBox method gets around both.

I'm glad you can finally play, a tip on dealing with UFOs; run. Unless you have a gun, you can also toss Yetis or rocks. The best idea though is to just hoof it to the exit.

Oh, they look like monsters to you?
