Spelunker HD is the story of an average person attempting deep cave exploration in an attempt to unearth treasures and reach new depths. In the player’s journey to unearth treasure and explore mysterious caverns various difficulties present themselves. The player must avoid the collapsing ceilings, ghosts, snakes, lack of energy and even small holes in the ground. In fact, the slightest mishap, such as getting too close to a geyser or falling a matter of inches, will rob the player of precious lives.
