Notorious, best-selling platformer comes to PS3. Are you up for the challenge?
Bellevue, Wash.-November 23, 2010-Tozai Games announced that Spelunker™ HD will launch today on the PlayStation®Network in North America. This devious reimagining of the classic 1983 platformer created by Tim Martin contains all the fun and teeth-grinding challenge of the original, but with bold new 3D graphics, 100 freshly designed levels, and both co-op and competitive multiplayer modes for up to six players. Spelunker HD initially launched in Japan and received a “PlayStation Store Top Sales Award” there.
“People use words like ‘fiendish’ and ‘brutal’ when they talk about Spelunker, but they’re always smiling when they say it,” says Sheila Boughten, president of Tozai Games. “The character is ridiculously weak and there are a thousand ways to die, but that’s what makes it so fun and so rewarding when you complete a level.”
In Spelunker HD, the player navigates each labyrinthine level to reach an ancient statue that stands at the entrance to yet a deeper, more heinous cave. En route, you will operate archaic mine equipment and ride automated machinery to aid in your quest. You’ll collect a plethora of items and power-ups, encounter a vast array of creatures, detonate bombs and launch flares as you run, jump and climb your way ever deeper. When nostalgia strikes, an option to play in the classic 2D graphic style is also available.
Spelunker HD launches today (November 23) on the PlayStation Network for $9.99. For more information on Spelunker HD, as well as a complete history of the Spelunker game and an interactive look at wacky Spelunker fandom, please visit http://www.spelunker-hd.com/
