    It's especially easy to do if you're in the ice caves with a jetpack and/or climbing gloves

    Free money!

    That explains some of the runs I've watched, thanks

  • DaxterMaxDaxterMax Registered User regular
    Yeah, it's probably best to start off with the jetpack as that's the safest method of avoiding the ghost.

    That was an amazing feeling

    Reviving this thread because apparently Spelunky 2 is playable at PAX this weekend. Anyone have the opportunity to give it a shot?

    Oh my goodness, there's a lot going on there.

    But I'm happy to see almost PixelJunk Shooter levels of fluid dynamics in this one. Very cool.

    I guess they couldn't let La Mulana upstage them.

    I'd be extremely surprised if it didn't get a PC release.

    I'd hope any exclusivity, if there is any, is minimal at best,

    I loved Spelunky on my Vita but the console has just been pretty much replaced by my Switch now.

    I'd kill (ok, not kill. Maim? Punch? Gently prod?) for a Switch port or for the sequel. Alternatively I want the PS4 or Xbox One to be able to 'pause' more than on active game at a time. Quitting a frozen game just to play the daily is a pain.

    Basically I'm tremendously lazy.

    I feel like Derek Yu/Mossmouth are smart enough to read the room and we'll have Spelunky 2 on Switch someday. But I don't think I'm willing to wait for that day, so double dipping it is.

    Yeah they definitely said "coming first to PS4 and Steam", so there's basically a 0% chance it doesn't come to Switch eventually.

    Oh no my dying repeatedly needs are still being serviced by hollow knight. I had no idea they were even making a sequel.

    Going full media blackout until I can play Spelunky 2

    It's awful that the embargo went up today

    Yup, this is about how I remember my time with the first game going:

    At least it doesn't have the motivational deaths X,000 won 0 ratio on the death screen.

    I've played about four hours(!) so far. Non-spoilery thoughts:
    • While the default movement being run makes sense, my muscle memory forbade it, so I flipped back to classic movement and controls
    • The game still looks brilliant, with more detail on all of the enemies and items

    Spoilers for new items and enemies:
    • There are enemies which do more than just take health now - there are scorpions which poison you and do damage over time, which can be removed by getting a pet to the end of a level, and a witch doctor who curses you - I think it reduces your health to 1 and stops pets being able to heal you
    • Speaking of which, the damsel and dudesel have been replaced by a cat and a hamster
    • There are mounts, which appeared in the trailer, and they can double jump and attack for you. Also if a turkey gets hit by a fire attack then it gets turned into a health item. The axolotl is adorable and traps enemies in bubbles
    • Tribespeople can now have shields
    • There's a wearable teleporter which has killed me in classic "teleport into a wall" fashion, and bow weapons. The arrows form platforms you can use to get to inaccessible ledges, but then you have to find another arrow
    • There's a backpack which upgrades your whip to a flame whip
    • Gambling shops now have throwable dice. Do not throw the dice out of the shop
    • The Eye of Thingy is still in the game, but I haven't unlocked the path that uses it yet as I've been using shortcuts to see as much of the new stuff as possible

    Spoilers for progress:
    So far I've got down past Olmec (who appears after the second area now and doesn't spawn monsters so is easier to take out slowly) and into the Chinese-inspired temple / Central American temple. Those are two separate areas - so far, it's gone Caverns, Jungle / Volcano, China / Central America. It looks like to unlock the shortcuts you need to bring items from each area; for example, to unlock China, I had to bring forward a mount from the Volcano and a weapon from the Jungle. It would be possible to stick to one path and still get those items, but some items are easier to find in different areas.

    I want to click those spoilers so badly!

    Must. Remain. Strong!

    I can feel the Spelunky Fever coming on, hard. The PC port needs to get here ASAP.

    After my first session I had a load of Trophies that around 1% of the player base had achieved

    When I last left it, most were up to around 3%

    I liked seeing Super Rare next to a load of them...

    I have to wait until my wife comes home before I’m allowed to play. The original Spelunky HD was damn near a perfect game. I played it so much I was in the top 100 average scorers IIRC.

    Excited to dig in.

    Yeah, my wife loves watching me play Spelunky so our evening is going to revolve around eating pizza and playing.

    Probably our next several evenings, if I'm being honest.

    My wife will often spring it on me during the evening. “Will you Spelunk for me?” And I’ll happily oblige her. She always gets cutely nervous when I’m ghosting gems and it’s a risky maneuver.

    It’s going to be so weird not knowing everything about this one.

    While I don't want any spoilers for items and enemies and stuff I'd love it if someone could explain how online coop works. Feel free to put it behind spoilers.

    Because Spelunky is one of those games that gets better the more you play it.

    Yeah, I've moved to a different state three times since this thread was created!

    I've gone ahead and spoiled myself on some of the stuff in this game by watching Giant Bomb's and Patrick Klepek's videos, but I haven't seen anything past the first 4 stages yet.

  • Ah_PookAh_Pook Registered User regular
    My experience thus far has definitely jibed with my remembered Spelunky 1 experiences... Ie I'm just getting shredded over and over and over. Fun though.

    Anyone getting "error installing game" on the ps4 pro with this? It gives me no other info but that.

  • joshofalltradesjoshofalltrades Class Traitor Smoke-filled roomRegistered User regular
    Okay I have a couple of runs under my belt now

    Notes:

    -the moles can lick my genitals

    -I had to program the control scheme to what it was in Spelunky, I have something ridiculous like 5000 hours in the original and asking me to learn a new control scheme is hahahahaha no not happening

    -I miss the robbing shopkeeper whip trick :(

    Yep - there's a system update that you need to install first

    At least, that was the issue that I had, and it fixed it

    For new players, "SPIKE SHOES" don't do what you think they do. Thought my game was bugged. Also (re: Turkeys):
    can cook the Turkeys for health. . .

    I've just checked my stats - taking my average run time and number of deaths, I've already clocked in over six hours of play

    That's, like, a fifth of my time since buying the game, and I went out last night
