  • 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

Gamezebo
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.

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.
  • 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.

2 February 2009
  • 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
13 August 2013
  • 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...
  • 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

28 October 2015
  • Summary: Spelunky é mais um daqueles jogos que mostram por que os desenvolvedores independentes estão em alta. Disfarçado como um jogo simples de plataforma 2D, o game esconde uma imensidão de detalhes e segredos que boa parte dos jogadores deve levar horas para descobrir.
