I’ve been wanting to check out Spelunky, but it’s bad timing. This month is Shameless Gaming month, and I’ve sort of committed myself to not playing new games in July. But if there was one game that could convince me to break that pact, and buy a new game, it would most likely be Spelunky.
I’ve just heard so many positive things about the game, and it seems to be the kind of thing I would enjoy. It’s a similar situation to last year — Bastion came out roughly half way through Shameless Gaming 2011, and I had to wait to play that game as well. I ended up being completely underwhelmed by Bastion, but I’m hoping Spelunky will be worth the wait.
I’m keen to hear what you guys think? Some of my friends are in love with the game, others have tried to enjoy it, but found it a little unrewarding.
