(Of course it’s a canine, however you can transform it to a feline or chinchilla in the game’s settings.) If you make it to the exit with your buddy unblemished, it’ll give you a little kiss before the following stage, expanding your wellbeing by one.

THERE’S ALWAYS A LOGICAL PATH
Each time you start another Spelunky 2 run, the whole design of every prison is naturally produced dependent on a couple of rules.
Each level consistently pulls from similar gracefully of risks, foes, and uncommon conditions.

In the event that you actually arrive at an impasse on your way to the base, take a stab at returning the manner in which you came and search for a make way. There will consistently be one. Obviously, the path forward may be loaded up with beasts and booby traps, however as long as you most likely are aware how to manage them, you can locate a coherent route down.
If all else fails, you can generally utilize one of your limited measure of bombs and ropes to make your own (conceivably more secure) way.
WHEN TO USE BOMBS AND ROPES
You start each run with four bombs and four ropes. Be inventive with these instruments and make your own ways.
Since provisions of both are restricted, it’s ideal to comprehend when to utilize them. You can likewise discover them available to be purchased at shops that haphazardly show up on each floor, yet don’t depend on that incident.
Bombs detonate, annihilating most everything around them and murdering anything in their impact span. Bombs are an incredible instrument for making alternate routes, opening up shrouded cash stuck in the ground, and taking out troublesome adversaries.
They detonate after a short clock, so getting the correct arrangement is vital. On the off chance that you hunker and hit the bomb button, you’ll do a short throw and drop it close to where you are. Squeezing a course and the bomb catch will dispatch it toward that path.

Ropes dispatch upward from where you’re standing and permit you to climb them.

In any case, on the off chance that you set one up while bouncing over a hole, you would then be able to utilize it to descend (as we likewise do above).
Continuously HOLD SOMETHING
In Spelunky 2, there’s almost no remaining among you and demise. On offense, your whip is moderate and has horrible range. Notwithstanding, each level is covered with objects — even the dead groups of adversaries — that you can exploit.
Regardless of whether you decide to utilize throwable articles protectively or disagreeably, consistently clutch something that you can throw.
To get any thing, hunch down and press the interface button. You can clutch little articles like rocks, skulls, and pots inconclusively.
You can hop on or hit a few adversaries with your whip and incidentally take them out. At the point when they’re weakened, they’ll have a little chicks twirling over their head. In this state, you can get them and toss them. In the event that they wake up, you’ll take harm. On the off chance that a foe takes an excessive amount of harm, they’ll be forever taken out, and you can cling to them as long as you prefer.
A thing you’re holding likewise fills in as a shield. For example, in case you’re holding a foe and a bolt trap takes shots at you, it will hit what you’re holding rather than you.

Throwables are extraordinary for deliberately setting off snares and taking out foes a good ways off. You don’t have a ton of guarded or hostile alternatives in Spelunky 2, yet having an item to throw significantly builds your odds of endurance.
Continuously LOOK AHEAD (OR DOWN)
Perhaps the least demanding approaches to end a run is by bouncing down an opening, without any inspection, and ricocheting off a few foes and dangers. Envision advancing toward a lower level without avoiding potential risk and right away closure a run by falling into a pit of spikes.
To dodge this cerebral pain, consistently look before you jump. Never push ahead or hop to a lower territory without realizing what’s coming down the road of you. Continuously be aware of traps and foes.
When preparing to bounce to a lower level, hunch down to look forward. Do it sufficiently long, and your camera will plunge down and give you a review of what’s underneath you. From that point, you can securely make an arrangement for what’s straightaway.
GET THAT FIRST SHORTCUT OPEN

In the wake of meeting every prerequisite, a quick travel alternative will open up in the beginning zone that lets you head straightforwardly to the last easy route you opened.
