A legendary game gets a legendary sequel.

Spelunky 2 is a masterpiece of procedurally generated platforming that stays true to the legendarily challenging original while also holding surprises around every corner.

Spelunky 2 doesn't advance the original's formula, but there's more stuff to sink your teeth into.

An excellent sequel to one of indie gaming's most enduring stars, that changes just enough to keep things interesting without losing the magic of the original.

No matter how many times I yelled in frustration, I couldn't wait to jump right back into the ever-shifting caves

Spelunky 2 is a successful evolution of what made the original Spelunky work.

Spelunky 2 is an outstanding sequel. Derek Yu, BlitWorks, and the rest of the team behind it have assembled a game that adds to what made Spelunky great without trending toward bloat or changing too much of the essentials. In some minor ways, the level randomization and art style don't feel quite up-to-par, but the overall package is polished, compelling, and brimming with secrets. As ever, players will die over and over in pursuit of a successful run or even just an ounce of progress, which is the way it's meant to be. I'm excited to see what others uncover as they pick themselves up again and again to venture deeper into Spelunky 2's depths.

Spelunky 2 is more Spelunky. It doesn't wildly reinvent the formula, and even brings back a lot of the same hazards and enemies that tormented you the first time around. But it innovates ever so slightly in so many ways to help give this sequel its own life. Either way, it sucked me back in.
