I managed to get a screen shot just in time so show off my mad luck
encase it isn't clear, I stole a jet pack then flew away and the enraged shop keeper fell down there. I worked up the courage to get close enough to throw a bomb and it stuck to his head.
EDIT: I proceeded to beat the game with said jet pack and only ran into an altar once to get the Spectacles and only 2 other shops, finished with 2 life. Now if that isn't lucky I don't know what is.
On a side note I'd like to point out how useless rope is after you have the Jet pack and how you shouldn't get any more once you do. So you can get better/more useful items like bombs or possibly flares would be a nice item to buy in case you're scared of running out of them. I also remember someone suggested item upgrades for the rope and bombs, might I say I second this idea with the possibility of getting a pipe bomb I can activate whenever I like or extra long rope/retrievable rope so you can take it back when you're done using it. I'd also like to see alternates to getting health like food/drinks(am I the only one who thought of a bar?
) or medkits? oh and I'd like to see a lantern that would increase visibility in dark levels but runs on lamp oil. Feed back or improvements on my ideas would be greatly appreciated
