Spelunky returns in this greatly-expanded sequel to the original roguelike platformer! Meet the next generation of explorers as they find themselves on the Moon, searching for treasure and missing family. Spelunky 2 builds upon the originals ideas by adding tons of new features!
It is a bigger world, filled with new areas, monsters, traps, and items, plus some other surprises, from hidden passages to treasure rooms! Players can find and ride mounts, interact with new NPCs, and interact with their new permanent base camp home, which can be upgraded as you run and explore the caves below.
Explore the game alone, play locally with up to four players, or, for the first time, join up with friends online to unravel its mysteries together, or battle it out in competitive Arena modes. Spelunky 2 will also be released for the PlayStation 4.
An Extra Dimension is added by allowing players to access a second layer behind the normal playfield. The second layer might contain treasure rooms, hidden passages, and other special places.
Multiple Routes Through the Game will add variety and give players more ways to personalize a run.
Find and Ride Mounts (like turkeys!) that have special abilities. Enemies may ride mounts, as well!
New NPCs that you can help, hurt, or ignore… to make each run feel even more like a unique story.
Variations and Changes to Classic Spelunky Concepts like shops and ghosts that will make veteran players rethink their strategies.
Improved Liquid Physics allow water and lava to move and pour realistically, which drastically affects the playfield (and looks cool)
Deadly Poison and Curses can be inflicted on players and enemies alike.
Build a Permanent Home at Base Camp as you do runs and explore the caves.
Improved Lighting and Special Effects are paired with richer visual and audio design.
Deeper Mysteries that may require a community effort to unravel.
Possibly More Eggplants
