Spelunky World Record Broken

April 23, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

YouTube user Buddy7heElf has broken the Spelunky world-record score, with a total of $3,140,325 last week (thanks Polygon). The latest Spelunky world-record score comes from YouTube user Buddy7heElf, who posted a complete play-through with the record-breaking high score last week.

The new record score was hit during a play through of the game that lasted 4 hours, 10 minutes and 4 seconds, ultimately beating the previous world record of $3,109,850 from Twitch streamer YamaYamaDingDong earlier this month. That play through took 4 hours and 45 minutes. YamaYamaDingDong's score surpassed the $3,105,850 score from Twitch's Bananasaurus_Rex, which had taken seven and a half hours in February.

At the 7:32 mark in the video you can see the beginning of Buddy7heElf's record-breaking run with the Windows PC version of Spelunky.

You can check out the second part of it on Polygon.

I admire anyone who can pull off such a record; most of the people I know can't even last an hour straight in that game, let alone set a decent record.

Every 5 year old low end PC should be able to handle the game. There's also a roundabout way to get it working on Mac.

So what should that tell you about your obsession with the Wii U and Nintendo in general?

Nothing I don't already know.
