Week 3 was one bouncing step backwards into traps and onto spikes. All because I was scared of a little flying mouse. Two and a half weeks is apparently my limit on optimism without progress, as silly Spelunky mistakes really started to break my spirit by the end of the week. This game is lucky that it makes it so damn entertaining to die.
Spelunky has taken more than a few of our lives in the past month, thanks in no small part to the PC version’s addition of daily challenges. After I got off to a truly horrible start, I decided to record/livestream as many of my daily challenge sessions as possible. Maybe I’ll learn something, maybe I’ll improve, but most likely we all just get to relive my ongoing discovery of new ways to fail on a daily basis. As the bruises start to heal at the end of each week, I’ll bring you the highlights of all of the falls, bites, accidental escapes, and complete failures from my first full week of Spelunky daily challenges.
This week’s enemy of the week is the bat who always picks the worst time to come say hello.
