Spelunky (9.5mb .zip ver 1.1) made 2008 is a very well made platform adventure game that has that 8 bit game style look and feel but don't let looks deceive you. It's all about treasure hunting in caves but you also need to avoid traps and cave inhabitants. It's packed with many creative touches, the main one being each time you play the game each caves will be different, no 2 caves will be the same which is actually a good thing and should keep you playing that little bit longer. You're equipped with 4 ropes, 4 bombs and a whip with other weapons to be found. There is also a level editor and this can be opened by pressing F2 on the Title screen, another added bonus for creating your own levels. There's many fan made level mods to download and play as well from the forum, making an almost never ending game. If you like this style of gaming then this may be the game for you.

Up - Climb Ladders and Vines
Down - Crouch

To RUN, either start walking and then press down, or hold down either Shift, Ctrl, Alt, or Spacebar while walking. You can disable "Down for Running" when the game first loads.

To PICK UP ITEMS, crouch by them and press X. You can throw them by pressing X again. Hold up to throw high, and down to drop.

Certain items, like weapons, can be used, instead of thrown, with X.

You start each game with 4 BOMBS and 4 ROPES. To use them, cycle to them with C and then press X to use. The bomb must be armed first. Ropes can be thrown upwards or downwards, depending on whether you're standing or crouching.

you can HANG ON TO LEDGES by jumping into them. You can also flip onto a ledge by crawling over it.

OPEN CRATES AND CHESTS by holding up and pressing X.

Gamepad support also available. Read the readme.txt file for more info.
