Spelunky Review | OXM

OXM: "Yet, this randomness is ultimately the game’s greatest sleight of hand. You’ll spend hours ceaselessly falling into spike pits, getting stung by hornets, and being chased down by invincible ghosts (which appear if you take too long completing a level), but every time you die, you'll want to immediately hit the “A” button to try again, eager to do something different or save more bombs this time. And with all the deaths you’ll rack up by the time you manage to glimpse the final stages or a fraction of Spelunky’s many well-hidden secrets, that’s truly saying something. It’s madness worth embracing." (Spelunky, Xbox 360) 8.5/10
