Spelunky review

PCGamer Online
9 September 2013
  • Excerpt: I should have been more careful. Having reached the end of one of Spelunky’s procedurally generated levels, I turned my back on the exit, and decided to bomb my way inside a snake pit instead. Snake pits are one of the game’s most exciting random elements, as they’re level-deep and filled with, yes, snakes, but also precious jewels, mysterious crates and, buried in the rock at the bottom, a mattock.

Spelunky

IGN
6 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Spelunky is a game that takes experts 10 minutes to complete, but it will take you hours before you’re remotely ready for that challenge. This is a superb 2D platformer that’s as easy to hate as it is to love, and your patience for punishment will be the determining factor. Players who live to overcome abusive challenges and obsess over discovering new things will hunger for Spelunky's deeply rewarding exploration.
  • Pros: Rewarding exploration, Satisfying difficulty, Daily challenges, Gorgeous art
  • Cons: Difficult learning curve

  • Summary: Streamlined co-op and the obligatory local death-fight-kill-brawl-match rounds out Spelunky, but all the variety and challenge of its single-player adventure drives the game.A bottomless pit of secrets and cool little stories yet untold, Spelunky is as effortlessly playable as it is intrinsically limitless.
  • Pros: Precise control makes play simple, Procedural generation keeps it endlessly fresh, Water cooler moments
  • Cons: Deathmatch is pretty forgettable, No online play

Spelunky Review (PC)

Softpedia
5 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Spelunky is a great and bad game at the same time. For those who constantly want to challenge their skills, who find great pleasure in other masochistic experiences like Dark Souls, this game will be right up their alley. For those who want to unwind and relax, Spelunky can be quite challenging and downright nerve-racking when you get some really complex levels early on, filled with many foes.
  • Pros: + Randomly-generated environments, + Easy to pick up, yet hard to master, + Chaotic yet fun multiplayer
  • Cons: - Can be too tough sometimes, - Requires a lot of dedication, - Repetitive soundtrack

  • Excerpt: Remember those “impossible” games that came out in the NES era?  I’m talking about games such as Battletoads , the ones that made you grit your teeth as you pushed through them, just for the sake of getting to the next level.  Well, that era has returned with Spelunky , an HD revision of Derek Yu’s indie release for PC.

Spelunky [Freeware] review (PC)

  • Excerpt: is a stream of constant delight. The icing on the cake is that it's free, and a mere 8mb download from the link over on the right. There are no excuses not to play this. You have been warned.

  • Conclusion: Combine the intoxicating flow with a catchy soundtrack and an undercurrent of dark humor, and you get a game that will devour many lazy afternoons.
  • Pros: Tunnel Man mercifully digs shortcuts to the upper levels of the game, making them more accessible to mere mortals. (You'll still have to work for the shortcuts, though. There's no free lunch in
  • Cons: You attempt to use the default keyboard controls. A gamepad is the way to go here.

Spelunky mixes oodles of death with fun, challenge and adorable graphics (Review)

GamingTrend

  • Excerpt: Spelunky isn’t a game for the faint of heart. In fact, it’s hard to regard it as a game designed for what one may call “normal human beings”. Much like the roguelike games its design philosophy is inspired by, Spelunky is meant for people who enjoy the thrill of building a house of cards… on a rickety table. With the window open on a windy day. Also, someone is shining a laser pointer on the cards, and there’s a lot of excitable cats in the room.
  • Pros: A gorgeous update over the original Spelunky, Brutally challenging, fun platformer-roguelike gameplay, Online leaderboards and daily challenges are a nice touch, Tons of replay value for lovers of permadeath mechanics
  • Cons: Severe difficulty is not for everyone, Co-op is local only, not online, Deathmatch mode is a bizarre fit

  • Excerpt: Tras terminar el mundo de hielo el tío del túnel va y se atreve a decirme que le traiga una llave de las minas. ¡De las minas! Eso es tres mundo de cuatro pantallas cada uno, a cada cual una trampa más mortal que la anterior. Ya fue duro cuando, tras terminar la selva, se atrevió a pedirme que le llevara una escopeta, probablemente uno de los items más difíciles de conseguir en todo el juego, porque aparece en las tiendas muy pocas veces.
