    "A fun little game that helps you increase your skills as you go along. Fun, colorful characters in an underground setting that helps you get lost in the game! So many levels that make it a unique experience every time you want to play!"

    "Not particularly sure what is meant by 'roguelike" -- but if it's referring to the dungeon crawler game, it's not very relevant to Spelunky, which is a platformer."

    "I love playing rogue games on my computer. I recently found a wonderful rogue game called Spelunky which offers so many unique challenges. "

    "I never get tired of this game. New levels appear at random. And even older levels are worth exploring deeper. It's just a really good game for my laptop which isn't the newest one on the block. And it's free! And free is always good. "

    "I feel that this game is very much like a mix of Mario Bros and Indiana Jones. The authors need to come up with a novel idea-- not rehashing the same thing again and again!"

    "Interesting game. It doesn't look like much at first but once you start peeling back the layers you realize how complex it is. Can't say too much, just play it and see. "

    "Spelunky is rouge like because the levels are randomized and challenging. You are also in a completely destructible platform."
  • Doris Jimenez
    Written on September 14, 2017
    "This is a very old school Spelunker kind of game. You travel underground avoiding traps and bad guys while collecting treasure. All of the levels are randomly generated so it is never the same game twice. You can even play co-op with your friends. Have tons of fun in the fully destructible environments and compete against other in the daily challenge. "

    "Spelunky is a platformer, not a dungeon crawler. It does have similar elements, however, with a large map to explore and lots of features to interact with. It's a great game, just not what i would consider a dungeon crawler."

    "I'm not positive if it is under 250 MB but it is a small game and does not require a high end PC to play."

    "This doesn't fit this criteria at all. This is not a page for a PS4 game, and it doesn't have coop features. This isn't what I'm looking for with this search."

    "You can think of this as Indiana Jones meets Metroidvania style games. Playing this with friends makes for some very interesting and fun gameplay seeing how far and how fast you can complete each run. "

    "If dark souls was a 2D platformer, this would be it. Its ever-changing level design and having to start from the beginning every time you die makes this one of the most punishing platformers you will ever play. Local co-op has a totally different pace to it especially if you play with someone who is used to the game already. "

    "Spelunky is one of those modern games that I'm somehow already nostalgic for. I guess that's because it reminds me so much of the old Nintendo games. It's sort of like a cross between the first two Mario games. I highly recommend it."

    "Spelunky is one of the best new games that I have played in a long time on Stem. I love all the different levels and adventures that this game offers. Every time I start a new level I feel like I am starting a new adventure! My favorite part has to be the daily challenges, not only are they difficult, they also help you learn how to be successful on future levels. Get this game now!!!!"

    "Spelunky is one of the first games that come to mind when somebody mentions dungeon crawler. An older game, yet extremely popular one, Spelunky is the epitome of the genre and is available on Steam. Its positive ratings and high popularity means that this title is a must-have for any Steam library. I highly recommend this title and enjoy it myself."

    "Don't let the cutesy aesthetic fool you; this game is hard. Spelunkey is a roguelike game, which means that you'll die a lot before you get the hang of it, and that the world map changes every time you die. This can be frustrating or addictive, depending on your playstyle, but Spelunky is at least fun and you can drag your friends along with you. All the better to watch them die~"

    "The big daddy of the new Roguelite wave (arguably, Diablo 1 and its clones were the first roguelite wave). The first game to bring procedural generation, permadeath and a focus on emergent gameplay from classical roguelikes into a platformer. This is the remake, the previous pixelated free version is still available to download on the web, with source code. Utterly perfect game design and level generation, with hilarious emergent moments. Yetis in particular can cause incredible chain reactions."

    "Great art and a difficulty that you'll love to hate, this is a game that rewards players tough enough to survive it's punishing learning curve. If that's not enough for you, the daily challenges bring some welcome addition and variety to the daily grind and punishment."
