Today Tozai Games has announced that the classic 1983 platformer Splunker has been re-imaged and is available on the PlayStation Network in North America for download. Splunker HD initially launched in Japan and received the PlayStation Store Top Award there and is now available here in the US. Slunker HD takes the player through the paces with 3D graphics and 100 freshly designed levels. The game also includes co-op and multiplayer modes for up to six players. Here is more about the game and stay tuned after the jump for the screenshot. As you will see we added both old and new screenshots for your viewing pleasure.
In Spelunker HD, the player navigates each labyrinthine level to reach an ancient statue that stands at the entrance to yet a deeper, more heinous cave. En route, you will operate archaic mine equipment and ride automated machinery to aid in your quest. You’ll collect a plethora of items and power-ups, encounter a vast array of creatures, detonate bombs and launch flares as you run, jump and climb your way ever deeper. When nostalgia strikes, an option to play in the classic 2D graphic style is also available.
Spelunker HD is available on the PlayStation Network for $9.99. For more information on Spelunker HD, as well as a complete history of the Spelunker game and an interactive look at wacky Spelunker fandom, please visit their site.
