  • Summary: The snake strikes with a calculated stream of acid. Wise explorers understand such dangerous tendencies, keeping distance between themselves and their serpentine foe. Time your movements precisely, and you can attack when the snake is at its most vulnerable.
  • Pros: Excellent risk-reward dynamic, Great variety of enemies, traps, and items, Unlocking shortcuts forces you to play differently, Incredible cooperative mode, Cross buy, cross save, and cross play between the PlayStation 3 and Vita

As Spelunky makes its way to the PC, the rewards and dangers are just as alluring as they were one year ago.

  • Summary: Any god worth its deific salt knows how to punish transgressors. Expect spiders to rain down upon the head of anyone who dares to destroy the sacred altar of Kali. And if you're so cavalier that two holy places are shattered by your hand, a punishment worthy of such disrespect is yours to bear.
  • Pros: Excellent risk-reward dynamic, Great variety of enemies, traps, and items, Unlocking shortcuts forces you to play differently, Lots of flexibility in how to progress
  • Cons: Multiplayer is offline only

  • Summary: First impressions are pretty important. Especially when you come sauntering over to the PC after a year of absence. Spelunky , beginning as a PC game, upped and left for the 360 as an advanced version last July. And it was brilliant . It’s now back, promising an even more advanced version for PC.

Spelunky Review

12 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Spelunky is one of the most wonderful indie success stories you can find. It was previously released back in 2009 as a side project by Derek Yu, a developer who has dedicated much of the last decade of his life to the indie game scene, helping out other developers and generally being a force for...
  • Pros: Progression through skill, not upgrades. So much to see, so many secrets to uncover. Randomly-generated worlds mean that replay value is through the roof. Daily Challenge mode is a gorgeous addition to the experience.
  • Cons: The multiplayer elements aren’t much cop.

  • 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.
  • 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

Spelunky [Freeware] review (PC)

HonestGamers
22 February 2009
  • Excerpt: I've been meaning to write this review for a few days now, but I keep putting it off. Perhaps it's the inevitability that, once it's out of the way, deadlines will dictate that I move on to something else, forced to cast Spelunky aside for the time being.
