Spelunky Metroid Mod

Spelunky with a dash of Metroid — it sounds just as bizarre, yet as appetising, as pea and ham soup. That’s why this weird match-up has now been made a reality by mod maker, joey4track.

To publicise his unique creation exclusive to the PC version of the game, he passed the modification onto YouTube personality and Spelunky runner BaerTaffy, who has now uploaded his own joyous experiences and impressions.

As seen in the video below — which features plenty of side commentary — there are many well-known Metroid characters, enemies, items and levels, along with familiar sound effects and a superb soundtrack.

The only downside is the creator is yet to make this Metroid-themed adventure publicly available. So until it is, enjoy the half-hour video below:
