I only just thought to take a screen shot of this just as one of them died. What I think happened:
Because I know that the lobster form can't get you if you stay in the doorway to the room it hides in, I stay just outside the room as it lunges and gets stuck in the doorway. This enables me to pound it outright without worrying about being hurt. I think somehow I managed to kill the lobster and hit it one more time, 'killing' it again. This then generated two of the 'simon says' form.

Very interesting bug. It was an intense battle I had in that room. If ever there was a hardcore mode made, this would be the way to do it. The simons weren't in sync since they were created at slightly different times. Also, because of the moving animations they do when they get hurt (which are random), their amount of 'in-sync-ness' changed as the battle progressed. I'm glad I had jellyfish costume on Cheesy .

Ah yeah, someone else reported this.

I'm not sure how it happens yet.

(maybe by "killing" the last form twice somehow?)

Oh, sorry. Didn't realise it was 3.3MB.  XD

Well, it is already a png...What do you want from me? A jpg? It's because it's the full 1024*768...

I had it too. (Made an (unanswered) thread here, but talked with Alec in IRC)
I still don't know how it happened, but it wasn't that hard, because you only had to kill one. Wink

Btw, a 1024 PNG doesn't have to be 3.3mb, sorry. If you don't have access to software that lets you save compressed PNGs then I suggest you use JPEG from now on.

Lol, screw special software. That pic is just me when I pressed printscreen and pasted into MSpaint. Tongue
And yes, I did know not to make a bmp. Wink I'm not that evil.


And 2 simons is definately harder than one, since they go at different times you have to 'be on your toes', so to speak. It wasn't hard as in hard to do, but it made it much more interesting (since normally you wouldn't get hit by him almost at all).

I kinda think there should be something like this built-in for a hardmode, just to make it interesting.
