Retro Spirit Games (Oct 26, 2012)
To be honest though, Spelunky is a single player game through and through, the mutiplayer is just the bonus cherry on top of the delicious icing on the world's most addictively tasty cake. Spelunky is a fantastic game and a wonderful reminder that the 2D platformer is as relevant and enjoyable today as it was back in its 8-bit and 16-bit glory years. Sure, there will be swearing and tears along the way, but you can never stay mad at Spelunky for long and will soon be back in gaming bliss enjoying the most addictive and downright fun game, not just of 2012, but of all time.

While it’s easy to find blemishes to a game like this, mostly in its punishing difficult and unfriendliness, it’s even more of a breeze to laud it for exactly the same reasons. We could argue all day about how videogames nowadays are too easy and hold your hand through every step. It’s a valid argument if you are looking to waste time and not get anywhere whatsoever. Or you could just spend those moments learning Spelunky through death, tears, experience and if you are good enough, find plenty of rewards. Those are positively the best kinds of lessons.

Spelunky is not for everybody out there, but for those that are willing to try something new and have the patience to learn its compelling nuisances they will find an experience that is more rewarding and addicting than almost any other game out there. In life, sometimes taking a chance on something unknown might be the best decision you make. Spelunky might just be the gaming equivalent of that.

Snel te leren en moeilijk te meesteren: Spelunky op XBLA is nog verslavender dan het origineel. Zowel indiefans die de pc-versie speelden als nieuwkomers zullen lang zoet blijven met deze game.

We've sworn at the screen more times while playing Spelunky than practically any other game, so we wouldn't recommend this to anyone with anger-management issues or a heart condition. But, bu the same token, it's also afflicted us with chronic one-more-go syndrome. So we would recommend it to anyone who loves videogames, which is surely all of you.

But that’s just me. I like retro RPGs still, and plenty of other gamers our there are going to love this game. Just go in prepared for something that could become very frustrating.

Ich hätte nicht gedacht, dass es so motivierend es sein kann, automatisch generierte, verführerisch blinkende Schatzgrotten zu erforschen. Vor allem die vielen coolen Extras und Waffen machen Spaß. Beim Schwierigkeitsgrad haben die Entwickler es aber stark übertrieben: Er sorgt zwar für Spannung, aber auch für derart viele Frustmomente und Neustarts, dass mir nach hunderten von Toden die Lust vergangen ist. Wer eine Engelsgeduld besitzt, Super Meat Boy im Schlaf beherrscht oder ein Faible dafür hat, sich durch Titel wie The Binding of Isaac durchzubeißen, kann ruhig zugreifen – und rund zehn Prozent auf die Wertung aufschlagen. Durchschnittlich begabte Jump-n-Run-Fans sollten sich den Kauf aber gut überlegen.

Apesar do visual colorido e bonitinho, que lembra agradáveis aventuras da era 16-bits, "Spelunky" traz um altíssimo desafio, o que pode tornar a experiência frustrante para alguns jogadores. Tal qual "Dark Souls", o game brilha ao ofecer um desafio ferrenho, mas recompensas que premiam a dedicação de quem joga e controles que, uma vez dominados, permitem superar as dificuldades.
