Spelunky is a platformer-roguelike hybrid by Derek Yu. Crowded Spelunky is a modified version made by me! I lay no claim to the things present in this game. I am only responsible for its alterations.

This version of Spelunky raises the stakes much higher than normal. Not only are there FOUR TIMES as many enemies and treasures on every floor, but ANYTHING can appear ANYWHERE...and does!

This mod is not recommended for Spelunky newbies (not that the original is). You'll need all your wits and knowledge of the normal version to survive more than a few seconds. Here's the rundown of the re-balance:

You now start with 50 HP, 25 bombs, and 25 ropes (you start with 4 of each in the original). Item pickups for bombs and ropes now yield more of them; you'll find 5 at a time of each. Damsels are also well worth the trouble to save, as their kisses now give an additional 10 HP instead of just 1. Where the original Spelunky is all about conserving resources, Crowded is focused on exploiting them to their fullest effects.

Because there are so many extra treasures available to collect, you can clean out almost every shop you encounter. Item crates are also much more common, so finding equipment that gives you an edge is much easier.

Of course, all this additional help is balanced out by the sheer number of enemies and traps you'll encounter on every floor. Since it takes longer to progress in this mod, the time limit for the ghost's appearance is extended by one minute (it appears after 3:30 instead of 2:30).

Running the Crowded Unlocker opens all the shortcuts, so if you've played Spelunky before, you don't have to do it all again. If you're having trouble in one area, try another. Or even just practice on the title screen! Most enemies in the title room can't hurt you, and the few that can still can't kill you. Use your immunity to learn their behaviors and get a feel for what you're up against.

Take your time, proceed with caution, and you might just make it somewhere.

I doubt it, though.

I really do! It's actually a lot like RPG Maker...the game is practically pre-made and you can change whatever the heck you want. I have other mods to upload, too...
This is an amazing game! haha, it's rather addictive

The original is similarly addictive. This one's just more vicious!
