Favorite item in Spleunky?
Mine is the climbing gloves or the machete. The climbing gloves are fun to use and have saved me many bombs and ropes. I really like the machete because... it's a machete, and machete's are just awsome. And they cut webs... I really hate those webs....REALLY!!

I hate the web gun because it's not that useful to have as a weapon and....I HATE WEBS!!!

Whats you favorite and worst items in Spleunky?

My favorite item is a jetpack and the worst item in this game (imho) is a web gun, cuz it's a totally crap. :P

web gun can let u reach unreachable places without wasting ropes. Climbing gloves while cool n stuff actually makes you way more vulnerable to tiki traps(and tiki traps are my most dangerous enemies tbh).

Favorite item is definitely the kapala because you can get a crazy amount of health with it and my least favorite is the teleporter because it's very random and you can kill yourself easily if you don't know what you're doing.

Favorite: jetpack. It's always fun to find a shiny blue jetpack in the mines.

Least favorite: boomerang. Totally useless once you are killing shopkeepers, and mostly useless even before that.

The teleporter by far is the best. It allows for very interesting movement over the map at big consequences.

Favorite would be the jetpack. Amazing mobility, almost totally removes the need for ropes, and great for ghostrunning.

Least favorite would probably be the web gun. I know it has its uses, but it's far too situational for my tastes.

The teleporter is an amazing tool in the right hands. Those that are familiar with the rules it follows can get incredibly fast times on the speedrunning leaderboards, but the risk of instant death plus my own lack of interest in speedrunning means that I almost never bother with it.

Favorite is jetpack hands down. No other item comes close to the advantages of the jetpack, and it is the only item that I will definitely steal if its in a shop and I can't afford it.

The only item I can think of that I never bother with at all is the teleporter. It's too risky and takes up a slot that could be used by a weapon. I try to avoid springy shoes and throwing gloves as well, since they might throw off my aim, but they at least have their uses.

The kapala is simply awesome, and even better with mummies. If you have never tried it yet, try placing yourself under a mummy, in a position where you can't be hurt by the locust but where you can collect the green gooey drops he barfs out. There's something like 8 drops every time he shoots at you, that's one HP per shot. You can easily rack up 20 HP in the City of Gold before the Ghost arrives, and if you wanna play around with said Ghost, you can rack up even more!

P.S. Watch out for Crush Traps ;)

Definetely the shield, Freeze Ray in second. Both are so much fun.

I really like the Shot Gun. The Web Gun is on the bottom of my list.

Jet pack's the best, but I find spring shoes + climbing gloves to be more fun.

My favorite items are: Jetpack (of course), Shotgun, Spectacles, Spike shoes, Kapala.
Least favorite: Climbing gloves, Vlad's cape, and parachutes.

I like the Shotgun...it's always thrilling to try to rob a shop and then kill the shopkeeper to steal his Shotgun :p
My least favorite would be the Spectacles, often useless because of the Udjat Eye.
