    I caught some gameplay on the tube last night. It looks kind of fun... but not sure I'd be into it. It's going on sale tonight, but... yah, probably not.

    Ive got the demo, enjoying it, and seeing as im so bad at it, i dont even need to buy it. :D

    Whens the first checkpoint, just keeps going back to 1-1 when i die, i know there arnt many and its a hard game, but i just may get too frustrated starting right back at 1-1 every time

    That's the way it works, when you die you always go back to 1-1, although obviously the levels change each time so effectively it doesn't matter and on some occasions you can fly through levels with an easier run.

    There are shortcuts you can unlock further through though, which I think open up new doors on the start screen, I never reached the tunnel guy that offers you the keys to these mind you:blush:

    I had this on XBLA but thinking of double dipping as it's a better fit for the Vita I think due to the bite sized nature of the games.

    Best place to look and ask for advise is in the XBLA Spelunky thread, Andy(AlienVSP) must be the know all expert by now as he played it loads!

    Did you buy the full game yet? Think I will later.

    Wait until you get to world 2. The difficulty ramps up. I bought it yesterday and can't get past 2-2.

    I think they all go to 4 eg 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, 1-4 then 2-1. Managed to get to 2-3 now I am the same with dying stupidly. Suppose will get better with time.

    I can't even complete the tutorial, 1-4 is the furthest I've made it so far, so I'll be waiting for this to become part of PS+

    Yeah it's a shame as I loved the idea of teaming up with up to 3 other adventurers across both Vita and PS4, could have been manic and hilarious fun!

    I haven't bought this yet, want to but that thought of "will this be free on PS+ in a couple of months time like Stealth inc.". That's the only trouble with PS+:laugh:

    Will probably buy this anyway as haven't picked up my Vita in a while and I do think this is perhaps the ultimate Vita game so far.

    Finally reached the ice world and died almost instantly. Each world gets so much harder. Not sure I am actually getting any better. Don't see me finishing this anytime soon.

    The only filth is what comes out of my mouth after every time I get hit.

    It's pretty harsh, reminds me Super Meat Boy in the speed you die.

    The Jungle levels are tough enough for me so far, only reached them a few times but have now unlocked the shortcut so great that I can get straight to them, everything feels a deathtrap in there so I dread to think what comes after!

    Great game though, glad I bought it as I'm already more hooked than I was to the XBLA version which I never really got into(I think it's just the pick up and playness of the Vita, it is indeed a match made in heaven):)

    I have unlocked the shortcut too but tend to start from the beginning to get more hearts and a bit powered up.

    The only thing is when you die you know it's you own fault.

    Wow, well done! and this is from the man that commented "Not sure I am actually getting any better":) Sounds like you must have, I can't imagine getting that far!:eek:

    I hired an assistant for the first time last night, didn't know you could do that but it really did entertain, was a shame he dropped straight into the mouth of a man eating plant though:laugh:

    I think I had a lucky run and was really powered up. Not been nowhere near since. Yeah same happened with my assistant. The more you play the more you discover.

    Anyone have any Spelunky tips?

    I struggle to get through one or at best two levels of the forest, death lurks everywhere and those totem poles with the spikes are my nightmare!

    Love the game though despite being crap at it, can't believe how much more I play it than I did on XBLA.

    I don't really have any tips as don't think I am good enough yet. Best I can do is. Take your time. Try and get as much money as possible early doors so you can stack up in the shops. Learn the enemy patterns. Press down so the screen moves before jumping down so you can always see where you will land. Stock up on bombs if you get to somewhere difficult bomb a different way around. Get your damsels if you can without getting hit if not leave it. You can walk through spikes but jumping on them is instadeath. Sorry if this is no help.
