Other platforms: Atari 8-bit, Commodore 64, MSX, Wii Sequel: Spelunker II (NES - 1987) Tips LarcenTyler: -When jumping off of a rope or a moving object, you have to press both A and the direction you want to jump in simultaneously. Timing is important. Otherwise, you could end up falling off the rope or just jumping upwards. -If you lose a life, you restart at the point of the last object you just picked up. Use this to your advantage! Me: Practice! This is a game that rewards lots of practice. I played about 10 games last night and on almost every one got a little farther, scored a little better. And it's worth it, too - there are lots of interesting things to see and do way down there. I think I only got about halfway down on my best game.Precision! Spelunker is absolutely unforgiving - be careful, especially getting on and off of ropes and ladders.
