You play as an adventurer known as a spelunker. The primary task is to explore the caves, collecting as many treasures as possible, avoid the traps of enemies. A spelunker can whip or jump on opponents to defeat them, can pick up items from the ground that can be thrown at the enemy. You can also set various traps and use a limited supply of bombs and ropes to move through the caves. A notable feature is that the levels are randomly generated and grouped into four complexes "areas", each of which has a different set of items, enemies, terrain types and special functions. The player may also encounter girls who are in difficulty. They can be taken away and attributed to the exit. If you successfully perform this action - health will be replenished. You can unlock the girl as a playable character; the gameplay is identical, except that, playing for her, you meet spelunkers on the way to salvation. Another aspect that can be unlocked - "Tunnel man", which is present the mattock instead of the whip.

Spelunky reviews and comments

If the Level between Frustration, Negligence and masterful Jumpskills strolls back and forth and puts you in afrotizing Climes, so it would be practical to play with short Pants or a Skirt, then that's probably the Game that's not in your To-Play list Missing must. Spelunky Is a classic Platformer in traditional SNES fashion. The Controls are extremely pleasant and simple, the Content ' complicates ' over time. So there are a Number of Items to Help you get on-others don't become relevant until later In The game (if you live that long). Over Time, you unlock Shortcuts to skip some Levels. This can be beneficial to you, but it can also be Detrimental. The Unlockable Characters are quite cute, but do not offer any technical Advantages. Items and Enemies can be sacrificed. Collect Gold to buy Items or just steal them and escape from the Crazy With the Shotgun, who runs after you like a Rabbit on Speed and brumbies as if he wasn't worrying about Ammunition. (Hint: He has an infinite amount of Ammunition and doesn't have to reload.) To put it briefly: Recommendation, Recommendation, Recommendation.

A very good game, always fun to play, whether it be solo or co-op, with a well-dosed difficulty. The game is punitive, but without being unfair: If one dies, it is that one was too reckless, or not careful enough. We discover the new traps and enemies (often in pain), we understand how they work then we adapt, in short we learn from our mistakes. Unlockable shortcuts allow you to practice in more advanced worlds. There is also a very good management of objects and money, with choices to make: "I buy this now or I save to buy this Super item later?", "do I have enough bombs/ropes for the sequel?", "I keep this Boomerang or I take this pisto-canvas?" , "I remain fair to the merchants or do I play it off the law even if I may regret it later?" Finally, it remains to deal with special events (level in the dark,...), choose the best paths to reach the exit before the arrival of the phantom ("I'll get this chest/box/damsel/treasure or I have no time?"), discover the secret levels, fill the log (places/monsters/objects/traps) then finally make the best score possible/finish the fastest... Or play stupidly in Deathmatch. In short, full game with a very good lifespan, at present 33h of game, I reach only hell. For those who would still be afraid of a difficulty too great, my 7 year old nephew manages to follow me without too much problem until the temple cursed after only 1h of play.
This game requires a lot of skill. It is very hard and demands lots of time to master. But at the same time the game is very rewarding for that you have this feeling that you achieved something nearly impossible. Overall this is a small but great and challenging game that will bring you lots of fun.
