Spelunky (Xbox Live Arcade) Review

 

One of the most frustratingly rewarding adventures ever taken in gaming history.

It's been a long wait, but Spelunky has finally come to Xbox Live Arcade. Spelunky is an indie platformer with randomly assembled levels much

Spelunky is a great game. There are no technical issues to hold it back, the controls are solid, the art is awesome, the multiplayer is fun, and the challenge is superb. The game can be really rough when you can’t make progress for hours on end, but...

Taken at face value, Spelunky can sound like a waste of money. This XBLA remake of a 2008 PC title has only a handful of worlds, each of which contains four short levels of around 1 or 2 minutes of gameplay. So how on earth have I managed to spend 15...

Spelunky is a game that you can finish, but one that you will never complete, and that’s why I have played it for 15 hours: The finely tuned mechanics, addictive algorithmic based level design and provocatively challenging, magnificently creative...

Xbox Live Arcade gets its Dark Souls -- Spelunky is a relentlessly challenging 2D adventure you'll obsess over endlessly.

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...

If you hate challenging games, stay away from Spelunky. If you hate charming retro graphics, or the idea of perma-death, don't get Spelunky. It's not for everyone, but anyone who walks into the depths of the game's caves with an open mind will come out...

What Spelunky offers above all is an almost constant sense of discovery. One game is never the same as the next, as you stumble upon a new item, enemy or story to tell. [...] Infinitely replayable and continuously compelling, Spelunky is essential for...

Every time you die, you'll want to immediately hit the "A" button to try again, eager to do something different or save more bombs this time. And with all the deaths you'll rack up by the time you manage to glimpse the final stages or a fraction of...
