If you’ve been looking for a game the will test your abilities as a gamer then you can stop your searching; Spelunky is here and it’s brutal.

There’s nothing easy about Spelunky, the randomised areas ensure that you can’t memorise the paths and the method of throwing you all the way back to the beginning when you mess up feel slightly cruel at first, but once you realise that you’re only back at the beginning because you messed up, it’s hard to stay mad at the game. It’s very similar to Super Meat Boy in that respect.
