So like a retard I somehow MISSED the mummy on level 1 of temple (I'll blame it being a night level on this) so I couldn't city of gold, but here's a somewhat respectable score.

FUCK YOU DRETHELIN MY ONLY HOPE FOR BRONZE WAS TO PLAY TO $140,000 WITH A PERFECT FIRST NINE LEVELS BECAUSE I ALWAYS DIE IN THE YETI CAVE FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU

ABLOO BLOO BLOOOOOOO

oh right Dogstar is perma-banned so Silver just opened up.

Still fuck you I was feeling really good about making 140k in just the Mine and the Jungle. I was only 22,000 off.

NOICE.

Basically though if one of you can make it to the city of gold with 99 bombs you're assured to beat Dreth. Net final score is about 700-800k, usually, depending on earlier play.. SO GO GO GO GO

Yay, finally beat Spelunky after 198 tries.

Could have probably done city of gold as I finished the game with my ankh intact and had 40 extra bombs, but I decided to friggin' finish the game once first.  Bombs + jetpack + staff = easy mode for level 16.

Also for nerds like Kayin, how about a low score ascension (cause my score sure sucks hayukyukyuk)?

The sad thing is, my score isn't even impressive for a low score run.

Sure, I'll do that.

I have no idea if it's even possible to get that much money from the city of gold, let alone that much money queued up. So I'm going to do some tests to see how much the CoG can possibly generate at once in wealth.

edit: yeah, tests shows this is pretty much impossible. Getting 900,000k in the CoG is pretty much impossible by it's self (I did a hacked test to destroy ALL of it and got 650k). Getting 900,000k on the subscore would take constant gold collection for more then a minute. :(

It's possible that it's +98725 superimposed over another 6-digit number.

This played out just like my low time run (7 minutes) but with more time wasted to avoid gold. At the end I was bombing past areas to avoid gold.

My best run ever so far.  You can tell I didn't know how thwomps worked.  Also I lost my Ankh stupidly the level before the Hedjet so City of Gold was never an option.  :(

Haha, if it hadn't been for my CoG run, I would have actually been fourth after Kayin, Dreth, and Niku.  Even my ascensions had pretty stinky scores.
