Spelunky Set For Xbox Live Arcade

imageSpelunky, an awesome blend of a platformer, a roguelike, and Spelunker, started life as a charming PC game. Xbox 360 owners will be able to play an enhanced version of Spelunky next year. The XBLA version will have new audio, graphics, and bonuses not found in the PC release.


If you haven’t heard of Spleunky until now check out our impressions (we’re fans) and download the PC version for free.

  • Nice! I played the PC version a bit, but never really progressed past the 4th floor. I’m definitely looking forward to the XBLA version and playing with a controller.

    • I was at the very end stage, but with help of that shortcut maker (which a huge fee that took days to pay). I could never get far from start to finish it’s too brutal. However it was fun and I was glad to have tried it out.

    Great news!
    After watching a fantastic and informative Let’s Play (http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=583772CB3B32FAE2) by Brickroad, I downloaded this gem and have been playing like crazy. It’s charming, challenging and fair. When you die in Spelunky it’s usually your own fault.

  • Ah, I love Spelunky. I’m glad Derek Yu’s baby is getting all the attention it deserves.

    So hott… I hope they include the original low rez as an option though (like Cave Story WiiWare).
