Genius Modder Turns Spelunky into Metroid
While modding a games art assets isn’t exactly a new concept, this mod forÂ SpelunkyÂ truly takes the cake.Â ‘Spelunky – The Metroid Mod’Â is aÂ near-complete, fan-made sprite collection that completely switches up the aesthetics of everyone’s favorite spelunking simulator.
To achieve the desired changes, mod developerÂ Joey4trackÂ painstakingly reskinnedÂ Spelunky’sÂ original sprites and even swapped out the music, achieving that classicÂ MetroidÂ aesthetic. However, the mod is yet to be completed, with some sprites – such asÂ ropes and dogs – currently awaiting their own custom sprite set.
Parts of the mod are availableÂ for download right now, but be warned, it’s still not finished.
