Spelunky
« on: September 07, 2013, 05:54:29 am »
Website.

So Spelunky HD is out on Steam and I've been playing it like crazy. It's really fun especially when you start getting good at it.

The new version has an interesting feature - a "Daily Challenge." Every day, a level is generated that all players can play once, allowing people to compare their skills without any element of randomness. There are also personal, friend, and global leaderboards.

And yes, I'm making this thread so more people might buy the game and play those challenges. Currently it's only me and Celdur.

(If you want to see it, there are a billion and one let's plays for the challenges. Or you could just pirate it. I did at first but it just made me compelled to buy the game to access the online component.)

EDIT - Oh, if you liked the Binding of Isaac, you'll probably like this too.

Yeah I got this on 360 when it first came out, lots of fun. I might double dip on the next sale, but I highly recommend the game.
I need a new tag.

I'm a cheapskate so seeing celdur play the new version made me go back and download the old version.  Still fun!
Probably not a Goat, either.

oh no, dont look at me do daily challenges, i have the worst luck.

also i finally got the last shortcut. bringing that key from start to finish was a pain, especially since i couldn't bring anything else along.

That quote is actualy very witty, Celdur. I suggest you use that in your signature.

That's a nice high score you had there Celdur.  ;)
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Has anyone had trouble with this game crashing after alt-tabbing out? Is there a fix?
