​New Spelunky World Record Destroys the Two-Minute Barrier

You'd scream, too, if you did something better and faster than anyone else in the world. Like completing the notoriously hard video game Spelunky. So, yeah, let the guy holler. » 7/14/14 9:40am 7/14/14 9:40am

Remember That Spelunky World Record? It Just Got Topped.

Spelunky players just refuse to give up. It makes sense, considering the game they've chosen to spend so much time playing. The world record for highest possible score has been beaten, with an amazing run by YamaYamaDingDong. » 4/14/14 7:15pm 4/14/14 7:15pm

Top-Notch Spelunky Player Just Broke The World Record Score

I Didn't Even Know I Wanted A Spelunky Metroid Mod Until Now

I don't know how this game went this long without this mod, but that doesn't really matter: Here it is, at last, Spelunky done Metroid-style. The title screen and music alone should fire you right the hell up. » 2/19/14 3:25pm 2/19/14 3:25pm

Mod Forces Spelunky to Create the Same Levels

A big component of Spelunky's appeal and challenge is its procedurally generated levels, assuring you don't play the same board twice.

See How Spelunky Levels Are Made

Spelunky procedurally-generates its levels, meaning you'll never ever play the same stage twice. But how does this magic actually work? How do you get to play through actual playable stages, and not nightmarish collages of terrain? » 12/08/13 11:30pm 12/08/13 11:30pm

Bananasaurus_Rex Keeps Breaking Spelunky

Spelunky is a very difficult game. But of course some people aren't satisfied with just plain difficult. Bananasaurus_Rex has already done the near-impossible solo eggplant run, so he had to invent a new challenge for himself. » 11/28/13 8:00pm 11/28/13 8:00pm
