XSpelunker - Spelunky inspired MSXdev'17 entry is rather nice indeed

We've put aside the Amstrad, the ZX Spectrum and even the NES as now it is time to mention a fabulous 7th entry for the MSXdev'17, it's ' XSpelunker ' developed by Santiago Ontañón (Brain Games). If you love the arcade exploration platformer of Spelunky, then you are in for a treat with this latest entry, as not only does it feature procedurally generated levels, but there's items to collect, platforms to jump across, vines to climb, and even nasty scorpions and piranhas that need to be either avoided or blown up or stabbed.

Although there are other entries to play such as Wash Man, ΧΙ∧∃Χ, Mazogs or even Torneo de Tenis, XSpelunker version 1.2 is going to be one hell of a tough challenge to beat in the competition. The procedurally generated layouts offer a new and fresh experience every time you play, and the graphics are lovely to the eye and make you feel like you are actually exploring foreign and mysterious lands. Other note worthy mentions to the game, include a very nice soundtrack, easy to control, lovely animations, and the core gameplay will keep you coming back for more!
