Spelunky is a brilliant indie game that respects your abilities and your time. Everyone should play it.

Price when rated: $15.00

Pros

  • Semi-random environments and complex, predictable opponents make the simple act of navigating 2D levels a sublime challenge.
  • Excellent sound design and vibrant imagery both impress the player and enhance the game by providing telltale clues.

Cons

  • Deathmatch mode feels superfluous and unnecessary.
  • Merciless difficulty all but guarantees frustration. You may never beat this game. You may even break a few controllers trying.
