That old ball and chain - The Daily Spelunk


8:00 PM on 09.19.2013



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 spiders come after you. Most of us realize this, I'm sure.

But if you take down a second altar? (Or, even worse, a third?) You'll be stuck with a ball and chain, as shown in today's episode of The Daily Spelunk. This probably goes without saying, but I'd advise against fighting a horde of starved piranhas when you've got something so heavy strapped to your leg. I regret nothing.

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

New Spelunky update adds Pro HUD for streamers

As you might know, Spelunky has been my videogaming obsession over the last six months or so, therefore it's no surprise that I'm actually keen to read through patch notes for the game. Version 1.4 has gone live and the big a...more

Spelunky on PS3/Vita now features Daily Challenge mode

While Spelunky is great no matter where you play it, the console versions have been at a disadvantage to the PC release and its Daily Challenge mode, which allows players to compete by playing in a shared set of stages e...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

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

Shovel Knight gets 3DS and Wii U specific features

Wondering which version of Shovel Knight to get? Well, maybe some additional features might help. Thanks to the 3DS' two screens, when you play Shovel Knight you don't have to stop shoveling fools to change your items or vie...more

Review: Putty Squad

Of all of the games to get a PS4 remake, you'd probably never put Putty Squad, an SNES game from 1994, at the top of the list. But here we are in 2014 with a full-on re-imagining, with more or less the same platforming mechanics that still work nearly 20 years later. The only problem is, System 3 Software has opted to charge $29.99 for a decidedly dated game -- which is a bit of a problem.more

Yes! Rain World is coming to Vita, PSN

Last week we learned Adult Swim Games had picked up and planned to publish Rain World, among other cool games. I have been unfettered in my enthusiasm for Rain World, which stars a slugcat who goes around stabbing other weir...more
