'Spelunky' (ALL) Coming To PlayStation 4 - Screens

by Rainier on May 1, 2014 @ 11:08 p.m. PDT

Spelunky is a cave exploration / treasure-hunting game inspired by classic platform games and rogue-likes, where the goal is to grab as much treasure from the cave as possible.

Every time you play, the layout will be different. Use your wits, reflexes and items to survive and go ever deeper!

Perhaps at the end, you may find what you're looking for...

If you’ve never heard of Spelunky, it’s a platformer with randomly-generated levels, making each playthrough a unique experience. The game is hard, but it’s rarely unfair, and when you die it’s usually in a hilarious way that involves some kind of ridiculous chain reaction. The difficulty and the randomization work together to give determined players a very rewarding experience – it’s common for people to persevere through thousands of deaths to beat Spelunky and uncover its most notorious treasure and secrets.

The original "roguelike platformer" is returning to the place where it all started.

For PS4, the developers have bumped up the graphics to 1080p, let players upload replays to the leaderboards, add more social features to the Daily Challenge, and otherwise take advantage of the PS4's unique hardware.

A lot of Spelunky’s success comes from sharing and streaming, and since the PS4 is built in great part around those ideas, Mossmouth wanted to make sure that they did everything they could to support that culture!

If you already bought Spelunky on PS3 and Vita, you’ll also own the game on PS4 when it comes out, as it is part of cross buy, so if you do purchase the PS4 version you’ll also get the game on PS3 and PS Vita!
