No depth at all yet since I've not time to play!

However, a new version of the game came out the other day 99.8 I think...supposed to fix up lots of stuff so perhaps the latest version will grant more folks victory!   8)

Heheheh, the game's damn hard with or without bugs. I can't say I've encountered a lot of them. One annoying thing is how it keeps save information in the registry, so I can't share information between Linux and Windows. Aaaand, as if that wasn't enough, GameMaker is only marginally supported by Wine :(

I must become a better player... I can hardly get to the ice levels (and that's starting from the jungle)

YOU MADE IT!

FINAL SCORE:
$201550

TIME: 20:56
KILLS: 68
SAVES: 1

PLAYS:    739
DEATHS: 738

I missed out on the city of gold because I died on level before its entrance.  Also only one save and no blood skull, of course I used the ankh to restore my life.   Got the mummys staff too.  Oh well, thats a challenge for another year.

Now I can get back to my life.    I will delete spelunky now.  Bye Bye.

Not yet, I have only unlocked the save the damsel game (sun), and I am silver on the changing room.  Nothing on the other two.

I've advised elsewhere that the best way to get the kills award is to farm enemies in the end boss room, ideally while using the mummy's scepter as your weapon.

The gold one you will definitely get if you make a city of gold run and bring bunch of bombs with you, but in my opinion that's harder than the challenge itself.  Just try to collect as many items (especially bombs) as possible, and take your time getting everything you can in each level.

The time one is what I consider to be the hardest one.  Just book it, don't go for any gold or any powerups that will take you more than a few seconds to obtain.  It's possible to reach the jungle area in under 1 minute if you get a halfway decent layout and don't let anything distract you.

Farming the last level, was indeed easy with the staff. Now I have only the timed challenge to go.
Died on the 14 level in 5 minutes. 
I dont like any of the challenge games though, not my style.  I dont really like playing games where the challenge is to see how long you live.

I think the challenges are kind of fun, but don't have any kind of lasting entertainment value.  The unlockable character is the real reward for unlocking the four rooms.  Incidentally, his special ability allows him to completely break the challenge rooms.

Here's something I found today that should be rather nice to chew on folks:

A series of rather magnificent speedruns of the latest Spelunky---with Video #4 also having a rather nifty and fitting bit of music to it

Yay, finally got my speed run done.  (after about 6 deaths to the stupid giant head). 
All challenges unlocked and special character. Yeehaw.
