Genius Modder Turns Spelunky into Metroid


While modding a games art assets isn’t exactly a new concept, this mod for Spelunky truly takes the cake. ‘Spelunky – The Metroid Mod’ is a near-complete, fan-made sprite collection that completely switches up the aesthetics of everyone’s favorite spelunking simulator.

To achieve the desired changes, mod developer Joey4track painstakingly reskinned Spelunky’s original sprites and even swapped out the music, achieving that classic Metroid aesthetic. However, the mod is yet to be completed, with some sprites – such as ropes and dogs – currently awaiting their own custom sprite set.

Parts of the mod are available for download right now, but be warned, it’s still not finished.
