Spelunker HD on Playstation 3

 

This Game Hates You, Your Family, and Even Your Dog

Spelunker HD is one of those games where you are either going to totally love it or completely despise it. It is not for the faint of heart but fans of NES difficulty will surely appreciate the old school charm and nostalgia. And there is now a boat...

I should have known what I was getting myself into. When I reviewed the 1985 original, I proclaimed that "Spelunker is Satan's love letter to NES owners." I contested that the punishing gameplay and cheap deaths had no place in the 21st century,...

Spelunker HD proves that this is one classic game that deserves to stay buried!

Spelunker, originally released for the Atari in 1983, is widely known as an extremely difficult game with what might as well be the weakest main character ever created. While the game was first created in the U.S., it was in Japan where the game's...

Imagine a cooking show that showed you what to do, and then could see you doing it. The game could offer helpful advice on how to stir, or slice. Think about a sermon where you interact with the pastor while learning about the Holy Bible. Nike+ Kinect...

The only major downside we can think of is that the game simply brings absolutely everything over from the original for better or for worse and then just slaps an HD paintjob onto it. There's nothing new here... but still, not everything needs to be...

Spelunker HD- PS3

 

Purposely frustrating, Spelunker HD offers a lot of game to work through, straddling the fine line between good difficulty and rote memorization for an entertaining enough throwback, but one that few will end up finishing. Idle thumbs need not apply.

Consumer review by:

Spelunky HD is a solid challenge, but it fails to do anything spectacular, and instead simply revels in challenging you. Compared to something more modern like Super Meat Boy, which is actually more challenging while still managing to be more fun at...

Spelunker HD (PS3) review

 

Retro videogames are a bittersweet treat. In some instances, that touch of nostalgia can really lift the spirits of an afternoon stay home. In others, it can frustrate you with unforgiving traps, jumps that require point-blank accuracy, and a strong...
