One of those 'make the game easier' mods.

One of the biggest problems I run into with Spelunky is that I just don't have the patience to slog through

ALL

SIXTEEN

FLOORS.

It's remarkably long for how unforgiving it is!  So what have I done here?  Well...



I dropped one level off each of the first three areas.  Just one.  So now, there are only three caves, only three jungles, and only three ice levels.  It makes things both easier and harder.

It's easier because there are less levels you have to survive through.  It also keeps things more interesting because you spend less time in those boring mines.  But it's harder because you have less time to gather resources, which can make certain tasks (like buying the Ankh) more troublesome.  It's also harder to set big records!

Anyway, give it a whirl if you're tired of Spelunky's early levels taking so long.

Short Spelunky

I'll only make the source available if someone really, REALLY wants it.  It's no different than Spelunky 1.2's current source aside from the numbers I changed to make the game shorter.

Hey, I like the mines! Interesting idea though, might try it.

Indeed, and a clever/unique way to decrease the difficulty too!

One floor per area.
Do it.

An option to choose how many floors you want per area yourself would be pretty neat.

1 floor per area would mean no black market or city of gold

Yeah, really.  If I crunched it as much as possible, it'd be one mines level, two jungles, one ice cave, and two temples + the final battle.  The trail of gold stuff would appear constantly, and the scepter and gold door would have to be on the same floor.  And there would never be any yeti lairs or alien ships!

Well that'd be your fault for picking only 1 floor per area now wouldn't it?
