^ 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.

What works

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.

Additional Comments

I installed the version of Spelunky Classic that was distributed for free for a short time from I don't believe that version is being maintained, but if it has been updated, I have not had access to any updates.
