Default Question about Lurkers

Was there ever a time when Lurkers could be killed by lava blocks? I ask this because I have found one level, called "What are you doing dave," where three people achieved scores that I'm pretty sure are not possible without killing the lurkers, and I can find no way to kill these lurkers.

There are no light blocks except on top of ghost statue blocks, so I have come to the conclusion that either there's some secret which I don't know or that lurkers were at one point killable by lava.

No, Lurkers aren't vulnerable to lava blocks, and never were.

However, you CAN crush Lurkers by using Porticullis, and, looking at the level you mentioned, I believe that's the solution to your problem.

Enemies crushed by gates or crates don't give points, though.

As the creator of said level, let me just say; even I don't know! There are corner light tiles on the ghost statues, so that might have something to do with it.

As 1 of the three people who made this score, I can honestly say I can't remember. I too scored around the 400 mark, and when I looked at the level again (probably about a year ago I'd say), I saw a couple of people got over 1000. I thought it through and obviously came up with a solution, but I've been playing it again for the first time in ages and apart from improving my time, I had no inspriational moment. You can kill all of them using the portcullis, all i can think of is that the Portcullis used to give points? anyone no for sure either way?

yeah I'm pretty sure this is just a case of a patch change messing things up, although I skimmed through the patch notes and didn't see anything that would alter anything in this scenario. Of course it could have been unreported or the "teensy problem" fixed in version 31. I know there are still a few levels where the "Tickers no longer tick when the game is paused" fix means some people have scores which are now impossible
