Spelunky is one of those games that I want to see on as many platforms as possible -- it's that freaking good. Everyone deserves the opportunity to play it. In addition to the upcoming PlayStation 3 and PS Vita ports, the title will now return to the place where it all started with a PC release on GOG.com and Steam later this summer.

The classic freeware version of Spelunky was and still is worth playing on PC, but the revamped, once-exclusive Xbox Live Arcade reboot is where it's at if you're looking for some of the best cooperative play of the past decade. Thankfully, it shouldn't be much more of a wait.

Beating Spelunky in under two minutes

One minute and fifty five seconds -- that's the new world-record any% time for Spelunky set by Pibonacci. It hurts my brain thinking about how many runs must have happened before the right conditions presented themselves for this to unfold. To think, I was happy to clear Olmec in under eight minutes for the "Speedlunky" achievement.more

It took seven hours, but Spelunky has a new world record

A Plasma Cannon in 1-1. A jetpack in 1-2. This is the start of a remarkably fortunate Spelunky run. It's a run that will, at least for the foreseeable future, remain at the top of the leaderboards. Bananasaurus Rex, known as...more

This Metroid mod for Spelunky is beyond surreal

This mod for Spelunky is messing with my head. It's a mashup of two games which each have a highly specific, distinct gameplay feel. I almost can't deal with seeing Samus so zoomed out. To achieve the desired effect, creator...more

This solo eggplant run in Spelunky is a must-watch

It's been some time since we've posted a Spelunky run on Destructoid but, I think you'll agree, this one is worth seeing. If you're familiar enough with the game to know about the eggplant -- it's earned by sacrificing a Mys...more

Only recently, after months and months of playing Spelunky, was it brought to my attention that angering Kali can have truly dire consequences. Yes, destroying her altar -- intentionally or otherwise -- will make a bunch of ...more

Spiky, with a chance of hubris - The Daily Spelunk

There are only a few more episodes left of The Daily Spelunk -- this is our final week, if you hadn't heard yet -- and I'm terrified Conrad and I are going to inadvertently end the show in a painful, anticlimactic way. Not t...more
