In the weather forecast that plays in my imagination every morning, a dignified dog wearing a monocle points at a map of Blighty with his left forepaw, sips a cup of tea and laughs as he tells me: “It’s looking like a good day for Spelunky.” He’s never wrong, Bertie Stockings, because every day is a good day for a spot of Spelunky. A new warm front may have arrived in the form of 99 Levels To Hell, a roguelike platformer with “over 25 monsters to discover and battle, as well as over 50 power ups and weapons to get your grubby mitts on. More unusual findings include casinos, elevators and secret rooms.” Purchasing now provides beta access and the full release is on Feb 26th. I’ve already got my grubby mitts on a copy so expect thoughts post-launch.
So much blood!
The game can be purchased at Desura, with beta access immediately unlocked, and will also launch at GOG on the 26th.
