Regine9zl 5 Instant classic
This is exactly what i love in videogames : a simple basis, and loads of possibilities. Spelunky has the Rick Dangerous vibe, but without the random deaths. If you die in Spelunky, it’s only because you did something wrong. And the gameplay really walks on that thin line : will you just get to the end of the level, carefully avoiding everything, or will you put your character in danger by trying to get every single jewel ?

Spelunky is a game in every sense of the word : it’s entertaining, and it gives you the feeling that you’re the one who’s playing, that the computer’s not deciding anything for you.

Simply put, this is an instant classic.

Instant classic.

You are in a randomized cave so the game is different every time you play. This game is so simple, yet fun, that you could play this any time on any day and still get the same amount of joy out of it.

Im surprised this kind of game isnt on an arcade system in a pizza parlor, its just that classic.

I recommend this game to anyone who needs something fun to do while they are burning time.
