Loved Spelunky, never got anywhere close to beating it though. Imagine the same thing will happen with this one

That would be more exciting news if I'd ever gotten further than the third stage (and only rarely, at that) of the original game.

heh, i'm with you. however, i've only played the original game on my mac, using a keyboard. so i'm optimistic that using a real controller will help quite a bit.

and personally i never made it to the end either, which also dampens my enthusiasm
Never finished it either, but I got to the point where I could reach the temple more often than not. And did get into Hell a couple of times. Dipped back into the original last week actually and I still love it (even though I've forgotten how to make any progress at all). If the soundtrack is by whoever did the first then that'll be enough to convince me to play 2.
No mention of a handheld release though - I quite liked the original on X360 and PC but it was the Vita port which really got its claws into me. Just works so much better as a pick-up-for-10-minutes kind of thing, which never feels right on a full console. Vita port seems unlikely this time round though so I guess I'm going to hold out for a Switch release?

I never got past the first level, lol. I remember getting this as part of the games with gold promotion. I only gave it a few hours attention, but that was enough to realize I suck at games.
