Spelunker returns

Back in the day, I had a Commodore 64 and loved it. There was a brutally difficult little platformer on the C64 called Spelunker, featuring you as a miner making his way to the deepest depths of a mineshaft infested with critters out for your blood and a constantly depleting air supply. It was fantastic, and I still pride myself on the fact that I actually beat the game way back when. The Tokyo Game show just finished up on Friday and a remake was announced featuring updated graphics and some kind of multiplayer mode for the Sony Playstation 3. This is a definite purchase for me and I’ll be looking for companions in the multiplayer mode, assuming it’s worth playing.There are some screenshots of the new version and some impressions of the gameplay over here on Joystiq.
