Spelunky (classic) is a free, open source, single-player and coop cave exploration and treasure-hunting game for PC (Windows) inspired by classic platform games and roguelikes, where the goal is to grab as much treasure from the cave as possible. Every time you play the cave’s layout will be different. Use your wits, your reflexes, and the items available for you to survive and go ever deeper, and eventually find what you’re looking for… This is the original freeware version of Spelunky that was created by Derek Yu and released as freeware for Microsoft Windows in 2009, with download link redirecting you to the official free Spelunky download page, which also includes the source code. However, if you’re looking for the paid HD reboot that was released in 2012, you can find it on Steam here.
