To the bottom. So far, in 6 minutes and 14 seconds (in 0.99.5).

Wow that's impressive. Love to see a video of a run that fast. I've completed it, but only from the last shortcut.

I second that! Some ice level tactics would sure come in handy ;) I haven't played in quite some time :(

Incidentally, is anyone else registered at TIGsource? I know Slashie is :)

My best time for completing the game is about 8 minutes.  I did it pretty quickly from the ice stage shortcut once, but that doesn't really count.

I have made it to the ice levels only a couple of times and I die quickly.

Long time lurker, never posted. Maybe if I created a decent game...

Yeah, it's so easy to die in the ice levels! Stupid yetis! And UFO's! And ice! And endless pits everywhere!:P

I'm guessing you need a bunch o' ropes for that level!

Anyway, you can learn bunches in TIGsource. I usually haunt the Technical forum. It's also great to provide feedback to other people :)

Woohoo got all the way to the end level, and died in two seconds, I didnt even see what it was all about. Plus I didn't even make the highscore, wasted all my money on Damsels. Now doesn't that sound familiar :).

How is it possible to die in two seconds on the end level?

I started playing this game last week (bouncing between this, Incursion, Stone Soup, and brushing up on my C++ skills) and I like it a lot so far. It has the quick, pick-up-and-play addictiveness of DoomRL. Haven't gotten past the jungle. Haven't even gotten the first shortcut constructed (blast you, dart traps!).

I assume it is the last level, anyway after the cut scene  I got hit by a jumping man.  I have made a few time since using the  last short cut but I still die quickley.

Edit:
Ok the last level is quite easy:) Yay!  Now I just have to get through from the start.

And he took all of your hard-earned kisses at once? Yes, these guys and yetis sometimes do that... ( I think the jumping man starts jumping after more than 2 seconds, and you can't get crushed too quickly either, that's why I wondered)

I just got to the ice levels and made a great parachute fall on the endless pit. ..

Many many deaths down there.

I have decided that speed runs get me the furtherest.  Made it to the 13th level in a few minutes.  OF course you dont end up with enough resources or health doing that.
