You’ve seen the trailer, but Incredipede creator (& real live Spelunky character) Colin Northway has just posted an extended video breakdown of how to solve one of the game’s challenges, where the player’s asked to scoop up a falling bonus apple from behind a wall and deliver it to the goal before Quozzle — the game’s main character — does herself.

Admits Northway, of the seven minutes of struggle it eventually takes:

I actually thought up this level on the bus. I also thought up a nice solution to it. Unfortunately the solution I thought would work didn’t work at all so I tried various things in this video until I got it. It’s not a great level and didn’t have the showiest solution but it gives you an idea of how to play.

  1. I think I’ll try to do a few more of these. This ended up taking just the right amount of time. I’m worried that future ones might be way too long or short. It’s hard to do when you’re also the level designer.
