    The Game Thread

    A place to share any indie/flash/browser etc... games you may have found an enjoy. Hopefully this'll get sticky'd so it's not lost.


    Spelunky is a 2D, randomly generated roguelike game where the aim is to find 4 artifacts, one in each of the games 4 area's to unlock the door to the City of Gold. However, it's not as easy as it seems. Each level houses various creatures that can and will kill you as well as hazardous traps and dangerous falls.

    Download: Spelunky DL

    A list of the games item's can be found here along with what they do in the game.

    A guide on how to survive can be found here

    Controls;

    Left Arrow Key - Move Left
    Right Arrow Key - Move Right
    Up Arrow Key - Look Up, Climb Ropes/Ladders
    Down Arrow Key - Crouch/Look Down, Crawl (when used with the left or right arrow key)
    Z - Jump
    X - Attack (also used to deploy ropes and throw items)
    C - Cycle Through Held Item/Whip, Bomb and Rope
    Down and X - Pick up an item, drop an item
    Up and X - Open a crate/chest, high throw and item

    Tips;
    • Rescue any and all Damsels that you can reach as at the end of the level they will give you one extra hit point. Of course, if there's a sacrificial altar on the level with the Damsel feel free to offer her up as a sacrifice as if you offer two you'll gain an item that allows you to collect the blood of the creatures you kill and after 8 drops you gain one hit point.
    • Try not to linger for too long in a level because after about two and half minutes a ghost appears and will kill you if you touch it.
    • In Area one Golden Idol's are protected by a boulder trap. Before picking up the idol check the immediate area to see if there's any ladders. If there isn't one thats reachable before the boulder is activated use a rope to create an elevated area where the boulder cannot reach you. Once you do just pick up the idol and climb the rope.
    • Damsels make for great meatshields. If there's an arrow trap or enemy that you cannot avoid throw the Damsel at the trap to trigger the arrow (arrow traps only fire one arrow) or throw her at the enemy to hopefully kill it.
    • If you absolutely have to have an item in a shop then steal it BUT DONT KILL THE SHOP KEEPER. By only stealing the item you'll only piss off that shop keeper and the one in the next level, however if you kill the shop keeper EVERY shop keeper for the rest of your current game will hate you and attack you on sight. They may even be found at the exit of the level waiting to kill you.
    • Spikes aren't as big a threat as they want you to think, so long as you don't drop/jump onto them platforms/flooring that have spikes on them can be walked on without you being killed. You can even jump but make sure not to land on the same spot otherwise you will be killed.

      Cock jockey, this is a thread to SHARE various indie/flash/browser games, not discuss mainstream ones.

        Pretty sure the game discussion is for all games, not just mainstream ones.

        I hate Rule 34 and I'm still defending the point that his thread has done what this one is meant to do except with a wider range of gaming genres.

          Two things:

          1) Obi: this is a thread for discussion and posting of games which aren't sold in CD form.

          2) Spelunky is fun, but I hate the two block wide spiders.

                There are lots of foreign games that aren't adult, I know, I was shocked too when I found out not all japanese games involve tentacles.

                  *Gasp!*

                  Edit: Also, did we just imply that all countries except for japan are all one country?

                    Re: The Game Thread

                    Well we have several countries represented here, america, canada, Nunu is from some country named Austrailia, I think they ride crocodiles or something and have these giant man eating bears that hide in trees. So I was referring to games not in that member's country.

                      First off, only nunu can call me obi. Second, I don't see where Rule specified that that thread was only discussion and only for games sold in CD form.

                            1) I like Spelunky
                            2) The purpose of this thread is more "free game recommendations"
                            3) http://www.teeworlds.com/
