|Finding the entrance!|
|Oh dear, this can't be good.|
Spelunky is an action-oriented platformer set in a constantly shifting dungeon filled with supernatural monsters and devilish traps. Each experience is slightly different from the last, as the levels are procedurally generated to add to the challenge. You cannot simply learn the path to the end through repetition, you must learn how to navigate past each trap, monster and environment.
|Asps... very dangerous. You go first.|
|Take too long (around 2min30sec) and the ghost will find you.|
|Each death provides a learning experience|
|The Tunnel Man will make shortcuts, for a price|
|Special event (Jungle zone): Undead. Find an "Ash" gravestone for a special bonus|
|Special event (Ice Caves): Aliens!|
|The psychic alien leader. No idea how to kill it.|
|Finally, the temple! Now where...|
I have heard tales of hidden levels, of cities of gold, even a gateway to hell, but that is far beyond my reach at the moment.
|A golden door?|
For now, I try my hand at the daily challenge (see how far you can go in one ironman run each day, and rank on a leaderboard), and make my attempts to reach the end. Wish me luck!
