Spelunky 2 Has Been Patched To Make The First Area Slightly Easier
Spelunky 2 is meant to be a huge challenge, but many players have felt that the first area is a little too difficult, even compared to later parts. The development team addressed this point in a recent Steam update, and now a new patch has arrived to soften the first area, Dwelling, a bit.
"We know Dwelling is causing players frustration and I think there's some fair criticism there, so we're testing some changes to the spawn rates of enemies and traps, particularly in 1-1 and 1-2," the update reads. "Some tweaks to 1-4 should make it more interesting, as well! Look for those changes to arrive in a patch some time soon." That patch has now arrived, along with some changes to spawn rates.
Spelunky 2 Patch 1.12.1e is mostly a list of fixes, but two changes stand out if you're struggling with this first area. In this patch, the developer has "tuned monsters spawn chances in Dwelling" and "added more room variety in the last Dwelling level." Hopefully this means fewer moles, although it's worth remembering that you don't need to kill everything.
Of course, Spelunky 2 is difficult by design, and you're still likely to struggle: check out GameSpot's beginner's guide if you're struggling.
