“Unabashedly retro yet forward thinking at the same time” - Nick Tylwalk, GameZebo (4.5 out of 5). “Doesn’t require taking mushrooms” – Joseph Bernstein, Kill Screen. All the way from the arcades of pixel-world comes in Space, a fast-paced procedurally generated infinite round-based action and match-three puzzle game hybrid with persistent upgrades, mad difficulty options, and a pumping soundtrack. in Space combines simple mechanics to create engaging gameplay, and with each unlocked ship comes different weapons that change how you play, from nega-beams and time manipulation to explosive sniper rifles. The entire game is wrapped in the aesthetic of an Atari 2600, with music by Matthew le Blanc. It features four modes, including Match Three and Survival, no load times, one boss fight, and enemies that will test the very fibre of your being. in Space, no one can hear you match three.

Got my game on my Android phone in 10 mins. I'm 3 days into trying to get it on my iPad. Whoever came up with "It Just Works" is a liar.

It's funny how the difference between a working computer and a not working computer seems to be how many dev tools you put on it.

Developing on Android is a ton of fun. Install, test, crash. Install, test, crash. Change something random, install, test, runs perfectly.

I finally learned enough Dutch to realise that the radio station I've been listening to to absorb the language was in Norwegian. Progress!

Just beat Olmec for the first time. I know that's hardly the epitome of Spelunky achievements, but it felt pretty damn good.

Turns out BandCamp is pretty good for finding royalty free music. This makes my life much easier.

I think unlocking the naked viking character is the official definition of "winning" Spelunky.
