Awesome, wasn't expecting a new one so soon. Ghost versus Plant. We should sell tickets. ;)

Ghost has the advantage what with the touching and instant death-ing...

So there are 2 ruins? One with a skull, one with a cooked turkey?

In the mod Tastes Like Spelunky, the roasted turkey takes the place of the crystal skull. Therein lies the joke, as I have no intention of explaining how the man trap found the turkey and Hero didn't.

I've played the mod, and I know about the turkey. I suppose because the mantrap is blind, it has heightened smell?

Locating food is its specialty. :P

Must be the reason why the spelunker can't find the burgers, cookies, ham, and chicken in the caves.

Heheh, the "cookies" are actually meatballs with different sauces. No one seems to see them as that, but I guess the sauce is misleading.

Is this Crystal Skull actually 15K? I looked on the Spelunky wiki (that I take with a grain of salt) and it says the Classic Crystal Skull is 30K. Is this one different or is that just what Hero believes it to be?

I double-checked most of my facts in the game's source to be sure, but it's possible I goofed it.
Enderlucario edit delete reply
I read somewhere (I can't remember where) that the source sometimes calls things different names than what they are called in game. Maybe there are other discrepancies.

Ahh, I just remembered something! The value of a skull idol is dependent on the area you find it in. Cave skulls are worth 5k, but jungle skulls are worth 10k because it's area 2 (5k x 2 = 10k). Crystal skulls have a base value of 15k, but they only appear in area 2, so they're always worth 30k on exit. It's a design oversight!

That is cool. I love finding glitches, exploits, oversights, etc. It lets you look into how the game works without having to know coding. This info is really neat. I just looked at the HD Crystal Skull on the wiki and it says it has a value of 15K. If it was an oversight it looks like it got fixed.
