Rules and regulations

To ensure that all scores and times on this website are legit, a few simple rules need to be put in place. Most of these can be broken by the persistent cheater and this website is largely built around good faith; be good!




Spelunky HD


  • No daily challenges for non-daily categories. As the seeds of daily challenges can be worked out, we allow only runs in the ordinary play mode. Please include in your video proof either the main menu or previous run's death.
  • Only Spelunky HD runs.
  • Only solo runs excepted for the Co-Op categories (which are 2p2c : 2 players, 2 controllers). Co-Op mode is also allowed in the the All Achievement category for the purpose of the Good Teamwork achievement. Only 1 player is to play the run though. See the All Achievements guide for more details.
  • Pauses. Refrain from excessive or strategic pauses during levels.
  • No hacks. All hacks that change the game code to make the game easier for the player are disallowed. This means that any UI hack (including transparency hacks) should be reported. On the other hand, tampering with the save file to manipulate which characters are locked/unlocked is allowed. Player skins are allowed unless your skin exploits the game and is not just a cosmetic change; if you want to be the safe side, just stick to vanilla Spelunky.
  • Dailies and VODs. Any daily submission over $3M completed after Nov 1st 2018 is required to have a VOD. If your daily doesn't, it will be removed and not count for Daily Average/High Score.
