Money is the primary focus of Spelunky. It functions as the main scoring system, and can be obtained in various ways:


The main purpose of money is to boost your score. When you die or clear the game, the current amount of money you're carrying will be recorded as your final score. There are also a few other uses for money:

  • Buying items from the shops hidden around the levels
  • Paying the Tunnel Man to dig shortcuts.

If you use your money to pay for something, it will be subtracted from your final score and will not be counted.
