Spelunky world record beaten with new high score of $3,109,825


Twitch user YamaYamaDingDong has earned the highest recorded score to date in Mossmouth's roguelike platformer Spelunky, shattering the previous record in a run that clocks in at over four and a half hours.

YamaYamaDingDong's treasure hoard tips the scales at $3,109,825, besting the previous record by just under $4,000. Yama spends much of the run steering ghosts into jewels in order to earn score-boosting diamonds -- a required tactic, considering the difficulty involved in approaching the established record. It's a remarkable demonstration of skill, and it's impressive that anyone could maintain their concentration and composure over a four-hour stretch in a notoriously difficult game. Congrats, Yama!
