What can I say about Spelunky?
I bought this game a while ago, played it for a short amount of time and put it away again. I kept dying, it seemed like they made the difficulty way too hard for a casual looking game.
I picked it up again a few days ago with the determination to get through the first world, to have a proper idea of what the game is about. Now I understand!!
easy. If you've played it, you'll know it isn't. The great thing is though, there are no cheap deaths. Death comes from player error. There are WTF!? moments, but these are shortly proceeded by newfound knowledge and understanding of a new tactic or strategy. The amount of ways to die in Spelunky, I don't even try to imagine!
This maybe what makes it such a special platformer. With procedural generated levels and the multitude of ways our hero can meet his end, each playthrough feels quite unique. It never feels mundane or like a grind. Any frustration from dying is short-lived and usually accompanied with laughter.
The graphics are lovely and colourful, with a plethora of cute characters to unlock. There's a whole host of tough achievements and a nice variety of catchy soundtracks that compliment it all really well.
This is how to make a platform game. 10/10
