With the release just right around the corner, we’re excited to announce that Spelunky has gotten some pretty awesome reviews so far and we wanted to share the excitement with all of you!
Spelunky’s astonishing creativity and the spectacular depth that opens up as you make progress make it easy to forget that it’s also an extremely competent platformer, with tight, poppy controls that work far better on an Xbox 360 pad than they ever did with a computer keyboard – Lewis Denby; Eurogamer; 10/10.

Spelunky is a game that takes experts 10 minutes to complete, but it will take you hours before you’re remotely ready for that challenge. This is a superb 2D platformer that’s as easy to hate as it is to love, and your patience for punishment will be the determining factor. Players who live to overcome abusive challenges and obsess over discovering new things will hunger for Spelunky’s deeply rewarding exploration. – Mitch Dyer; IGN; 9/10.
