Deathmatch

A round of Deathmatch on the Frozen Paradise arena.

Deathmatch is a mode exclusive to the Console/Steam version of Spelunky. In Deathmatch up to four players fight against each other in one of seventy-two specially created arenas, with the last Spelunker standing declared the winner.

MechanicsEdit

Deathmatch can either be played locally (on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and X-Box 360 only), or via a LAN connection. The host can set several variables for the Deathmatch:-

  • The arena to be played on (including the option to choose a random area for each round)
  • the number of rounds a player must win to win the deathmatch
  • Number of Hit Points each player starts with
  • Number of bombs each player starts with
  • Number of ropes each player starts with
  • The option to do battle with computer-controlled Spelunkers (called Bots ingame).

If Bots is turned ON, bots will be added into the deathmatch so that four Spelunkers will play.

Deathmatches are split into several rounds. To win a round, the player must be the last spelunker standing. Matches play mostly the same as in Adventure mode, with a few key differences:-

  • To discourage Spelunkers from utilizing camping strategies, if Spelunkers stand still for too long, a targeting reticle will appear over them, dealing 10 points of damage if they do not avoid the imminent psychic attack. This can be turned off.
  • Crates do not contain bomb bags and rope piles, but all other objects have the same probability of appearing in crates.
  • When all crates are destroyed, more may appear in a random location of the arena later on.
  • Monsters indigenous to the theme of the area may randomly appear at the start of each round.
  • The last Spelunker alive must survive for two seconds to be declared the winner. If they die within that time, for example by environmental hazards or exploding bombs, the round will be considered a draw.
  • Once a round ends, the whole arena resets ready for another round if necessary.
