    I really hope this comes out on switch. I played the heck out of the first one on my vita. Perfect little travel game, but not one I'd really sit down to play while in front of the TV.

    Played for 3-ish hours last night and my biggest problem besides just figuring out new enemies and mechanics is that the new art style makes it harder for me to distinguish enemies against the background. I'm sure I'll get used to it, but it's frustrating right now.

    I made it to the second biome, so that's progress. I pretty much instantly died, but hey.

    I died on a pretty big part after breezing through the Left Second Biome. . .and then died because throwing a rock at an enemy bounces through said enemy and hits a Friendly.

    . . .I'm not mad though. I think maybe it is because these runs are so short and you don't really have the time to go slow but I'm not THAT frustrated when I die. Compare this to games like ENTER THE GUNGEON, where I already am not a Twitch Shooter expert, but having to grind through the levels again after getting clipped by something you swore you dodged.

    Might also help that the visual style is so darn cute.

    There's a learning curve on both games but once you learn the monster patterns and items gungeon is a lot easier I think. Gungeon gives you items that are absurdly powerful, nothing on the level of clone of lucky clover exists in Spelunky... and if it does its just as likely to kill you.

    I got the game working after console update, as mentioned earlier.

    I never played the first Spelunky, and am not great at platformers, so I'm getting wrecked. Ive prob got 50 or so runs in, have the first shortcut opened and have made the 3rd biome once.

    Im enjoying it, but not necessarily experiencing the sublime perfection that people.have described.

    I wanna talk about what I have learned, the hard-won wisdom I have earned
    -The clover you can get from the leprechaun does two things: reveals a hidden treasure via rainbow and also increases the time before the Ghost shows up

    -Take the Eye from the first biome to the volcano biome, a device that drills into hell is available to use with the Eye. Go into the hidden hell door and fight your way to the top to get a crown. Take the crown to the water biome and you can trade it for Excalibur

    -Don’t shoot at robots

    -Poison is one of the worst status effects in the game. I don’t know if there’s a cure or not but I haven’t found one which makes it a death sentence. It’s worth taking a hit if it means you’ll avoid getting poisoned by a scorpion or bubble

    Regarding your last bullet point:
    Get a pet to the end of the level and it will cure your poison

    Things I have learned:
    Vlad's Cape lets you double jump as well as glide

    Backpacks explode

    Turkeys can be cooked with bombs, torches, and the fire dog's attack

    Torches which have been extinguished can be relit from torches on walls

    Whipping a camp fire gives you a burning torch

    Hitting an enemy with the cursed jar turns it grey, but I haven't stuck around long enough to find out what that means

    So, I've played prob a total of 5 or 6 hours now. I think its not really clicking for me. It's honestly kind of just too damn hard. I so rarely make any progress that it really just feels like banging my head against the wall over and over.

    Made it to 6-2 and then trapped myself with no bombs or ropes :x

  • burboburbo Registered User regular
    Man, fuck you Spelunky. I hate you. Yet, I keep.playing you. Another hour of my life sunk to this endless death cycle, but i did make it to 4-1 this time (and die within literally like 10 seconds). I hate this game, and hate all you. Lets see if i get any further tomorrow :)

    I've just noticed that there another page to your death journal which gives additional stats. My daily run, for example:

    Dear Journal,

    I was law-abiding.
    I liked pets.
    I took my first damage in level 1-3 (Bat).
    I eventually died in level 2-4 (Snap Trap).
