When you die try to understand why you died and learn from it.

Just try getting to the exit at the bottom without taking damage, ignore the loot (if it's not in the way already), don't take any risks. Try reaching stage 5, there is someone waiting...

Dont try to collect every piece of gold, just collect whats on your way or easy to get.
And i'd recommend spending money in the beginning (unless you're not doing special run or robbing)

Just learn from your mistakes and keep playing, dont spend tons of time getting cash until your fast at it, and always get the Damsel if you find her/him, but dont spend too much time looking for her. You gotta get out before the ghost comes. If you keep playing you'll get better and better and eventually be able to get shortcuts and find loot without having to face the ghost. Also, if you need info on the game look at the spelunky wiki. It helped me.

Im also noob, but what I learned so far is to always trying to carry a stone/skull etc with me to throw at enemies and trigger traps without losing health, and if you need to jump down, but cant see the bottom, press down and the camera will move down so you will prevent jumping int spikes and other nasty stuff. Got me through level 1 at least lol. Also buy bombs and rope whenevr you can in a shop, but don't accidnetly drop a bomb in a shop, I accidently died to the shop guy like 10 times :'(

Yes those are all true. Also, get the climbing glove if possible. If you are feeling brave don't get the health grab from the Damsel but instead drop her onto an altar to Kali. You'll get a relatively valuable reward for this, and if you offer enough to Kali you'll get a special blood gathering heart creating skull thing ( I haven't gotten this yet lol ).

Just keep playing and you'll find yourself getting better at it.

Also a tip: as long as you don't fall on top of spikes, you can walk through them.

Take advantage of the shortcuts to learn the new level enemies/traps, when you reach them.
