^ Compiled game in new version of Game Maker (8.0), which should fix some GM-related errors and speed up the game and make loading faster. + Added: new boss to level editor. + Added: extended statistics are written to "stats.txt" upon game exit. + Added: more shopkeeper names. = dark areas would not appear if you beat the previous level fast enough (to prevent frustrating speed runs). = Moon Room minigame improved. = Changed damage from longest falls. = arrow traps now have arrows inside of them.
The game installs, starts up from command line ("wine ./Spelunky" from the installation folder), and plays perfectly well for multiple sessions up to level 4. It also plays up to level 5 once.
Controls work. Sound works. High scores work.
What does not
The game crashes on exit. I have to kill the process to stop the debugger which starts automatically and gets into a loop.
Once I reach level 5 a second time (after dying on level 5+ once), the game crashes when the Tunnel Man shows up in between levels 4 and 5.
The game window doesn't always foreground correctly. Sometimes I have to hide all other windows to make it visible.
What was not tested
I haven't played any levels after level 5.
It might be possible to play past level 4 multiple times by clearing the game data using the game function to clear high scores or by piecemeal removing the files wherever they are stored in the file system. I haven't tried this.
I installed the version of Spelunky Classic that was distributed for free for a short time from GOG.com. I don't believe that version is being maintained, but if it has been updated, I have not had access to any updates.
