If there's any place in Spelunky to use the ropes you've been hanging onto, it's the ice caves. One well-placed rope can save you all kinds of trouble there.

Also, yes, frozen cavemen will come to life if you get them out of the ice. They're not the missing link, though...just more baddies to deal with. That's why you should just leave them frozen. ;P

I wish ropes in real life could be hung from nothing like the ones in Spelunky.

Yeah... That would be cool.

Yes! I'm glad someone noticed I didn't bother to show the top! :D

I'm pretty sure they just stick to the back wall of the level in the game, but that's too hard to show in any logical way. =P

Huh. I never considered that they stick to the back wall... I guess it makes more sense, though. Well, whether they stick to walls or are suspended in mid-sir, the ropes in Spelunky still defy the laws of physics. lol

Why would you think it's a good idea to unfreeze them?

And something tells me they are going to be waiteing for a while.

Most of the time, it's not a good idea. They usually get unfrozen by accident; other elements of the ice caves I have yet to reveal can cause this. About the only good you can do with an unfrozen caveman is sacrifice it to Kali, but that's assuming there's an altar around, and yetis are a better choice for sacrificing anyway! So...yeah, let sleeping dogs lie.

if your a plant, and you have too low health to go around yetis safely, frozen cavemen can be a nice snack. specially because they are stunned when they emerge, meaning they are 100% safe if your fast enough.

Yep! But this isn't TLS, so Hero has no use for frozen cavemen.
