"The underworld. Sheol. Hades. One thing's for certain: it's HOT down here!"
|Accessible:||Levels 5-1 to 5-4.|
Hell is the optional fifth area of the caves, comprising levels 5-1 to 5-4. Upon reaching 5-4, you must defeat King Yama, the ruler of the underworld, to complete the game and unlock Yang as a Spelunker. The ending will be changed to accommodate for your great success. You will also be awarded the "To Hell and Back" achievement.
Hell is a very claustrophobic area of the game, consisting of very narrow passageways, often filled with Tiki Traps and Spike Balls. The exit is often surrounded by Tiki Traps, often nullifying the threat of hunting Shopkeepers. Chains that the Spelunker can climb can be found over Spikes and pools of Lava. Due to the large amount of hazards, a Cape, a Jetpack, or a good supply of Bombs are recommended.
- Succubus disguises herself as a Damsel to lure the Spelunker, once they are in range she transforms into a demonic woman.
"A horrible feeling of nausea comes over you!"Edit
This feeling always appears in 5-1 and features Vlad's tower in the left or right side of the level.
- This level was added in the HD release.
