Germany wins again, this time it's a world record Spelunky run

Xav de Matos, @Xav

Spelunky has once again been mastered, with a new world record speedrun set over the weekend. YouTube user Pibonacci waltzed through the devious action game with a final time of 1:55:343. The previously established world record for any percentage game completion was clocked at two minutes and one second, Eurogamer reports.

"What a day for Germany, I guess," Pibonacci said after passing through the game's final door, in a run that occurred soon after his homeland took home the FIFA World Cup. The German YouTuber's phenomenal run was due in part to a few lucky breaks, including the good fortune to nab a few key items early in his run. His masterful use of the deadly teleporter, which when misused can lead to immediate death, was integral to his quick finish.

You can watch Pibonacci's outstanding feat after the break.
