an extra difficulty mode where everything is super dangerous,
I'll provide some specifics for ideas:

-bats fly 2X faster
-snakes sometimes dash towards the player
-spiders don't sit on the ground for 2 seconds anymore, they just jump up again the instant they land on the ground(like they do in spelunky classic)
-mother spiders spew 3 web blasts at a time
-powder kegs explode whenever the player touches them
-cavemen can see backwards and sense when the player is standing behind them
-arrow traps shoot 3 arrows once triggered, one is aimed normally(like at 0 degrees), one is aimed at 20 degrees, and the last one is aimed at -20(aka 340) degrees
-arrow traps can sometimes still have more arrows, and be triggered a 2nd time, even after they've been triggered once :3

-shops are guarded by 2 shopkeepers instead of 1
-shopkeepers can do a 2 round burst shotgun blast(1 shotgun blast followed by another a few milliseconds afterward)

-frogs jump faster, meaning they don't spend as much time taking a rest after each jump
-explosive frogs explode instantly once damaged, meaning the player can no longer just jump on their heads
-poison bubble spewing snails spew 2X as much bubbles, some of which go more horizontally than vertically
-monkeys always take a live bomb from the player
-boomerang cavemen also chase after the player while throwing their boomerangs(currently they just stand still to throw their boomerangs)
-mother frogs can give birth to 2 frogs at once instead of just one

-man-eater plants chase the player, instead of just walking back and forth

-yetis carry rocks to throw at the player and also chase the player when they see him
-mammoths freeze ray goes a bit farther
-ufo can shoot sideways at the player, also moves faster

-Ghost appears on a level at 2 minutes instead of 2 and 1/2 minutes, a second Ghost appears at 4 minutes

It will probably never happen, but I just thought it would be even more fun to watch people play the game if it was like that.

Check out Frozlunky and use "hardlunky" as the seed. It's not exactly like you're imagining but it's still a big increase in challenge.
