Spelunky hack lets you play the same levels over and over

By Alice O'Connor, Jan 21, 2014 6:15am PST

Part of the point of Spelunky is that players never see the same level twice, always learning techniques to defeat what the level generator throws at them rather than simply layouts. But if you do want to replay a particular world over and over, for whatever reason, a canny ...

By Alice O'Connor, Jan 02, 2014 7:00am PST

Max Payne 3 may have strayed too far from the series' roots for some fans' liking, but at least one thought it introduced a few cool new tricks. A new Max Payne 2 mod adds in bits and pieces lifted from MP3, some of which you may be happier to see than others, including spli...
