94w ago - Tozai Games Director/Producer Brett Ballow has confirmed that Spelunker HD hits the European PSN Store tomorrow alongside a video trailer below.
To quote: Good news my fellow Spelunkers of SCEE territories - the wait is over! It's time to charge up your headlamps and push your cave exploring tendencies to all new heights... er, depths: Spelunker HD is coming to the PlayStation Store tomorrow.
Throughout your arduous adventure you will encounter all the wicked elements of Timothy Martin's original 1983 masterpiece, but with so many newly concocted ways to die it may feel a bit like a devilish set-up... a cave of untold riches guarded by more pits, tricks, traps and more enemies than are stars in the night sky.
But the only stars you'll be seeing for weeks will be the ones circling your head as you run, jump, blast and scratch your way ever deeper towards the 100,000 meter finale. The 100 newly devised caverns may be set in 10 brand new high definition environments, but are just as behemoth in size and complexity as you remember and expect. And getting to the bottom is only half the battle.
But that's not the only catch; Spelunker, reputedly the weakest...
131w ago - Today Brett Ballow at Tozai Games has confirmed that updated classic and personal favorite of mine Spelunker HD is coming to PSN soon and shared a PS3 video trailer.
To quote: Does dangling from a frayed rope, thousands of meters beneath the earth's crust, with lit dynamite in hand sound like your idea of a good time?
I've got good news: Spelunker HD for PS3 is coming to the PlayStation Store for $9.99 on November 23rd!
Spelunker HD closely follows Timothy Martin's brilliant original effort of 1983, even down to the quirky level-scrolling scheme that forces the explorer to get dangerously close to the screen edges. All of the cursed original enemies and terrain threats remain, but with so many new additions I've lost count.
It boasts 100 all-new levels set in 10 newly designed HD worlds, plus the familiar explorer who is liable to pass out from lacing up his boots too tightly: Spelunker may have the weakest character in all of gaming!
But what this anemic explorer lacks in might, he makes up for in bravery. He'll need it because Spelunker HD has more pits, tricks, traps and enemies than a cactus has spines.
