Spelunky Achievements

Mines Shafted

Reached the Jungle.   

This achievement will unlock once you have completed the 4 stages of the 'Mines' level. 

If you are having trouble clearing the Mines, read these tips:


  • Hold  at a ledge and press  to drop a rope downwards.
  • Land on an enemy's head from a high height to negate fall damage.
  • Grab a ledge while falling from a high height to negate fall damage.


  • Giant Spiders: Throw a bomb into their web underneath them to kill them easily. Make sure you wait so they don't jump out of their web.
  • Scorpions: They spawn rarely and will go crazy if they spot you. Your best chance of survival is to whip them to stun them or jump on their head, then run away or throw them in a dangerous area.
  • Cavemen: These are also rare to find in the Mines. Use the same tactics as the scorpions on these.


  • Arrow Traps: You can throw any object in their path to set them off. If you're desperate you can use a bomb, or a damsel will work, but if a damsel is hit by two arrow traps it will die. Sometimes they have already shot an arrow before you've gotten to them. Look around the ground for broken arrows to see if they have.
  • Spikes: If you land on these they will kill you instantly. You can run through them if you are on ground level with them.

To unlock the shortcut to the Jungle, you will have to complete the Mines level 3 times, each time bringing something new to the end. The first time you get there you will have to donate 1 bomb. When you get there a second time you will have to donate 1 rope. Finally, on your third arrival you will have to donate $10,000. Make sure you have what is required in your inventory upon each arrival if you want quick access to the Jungle.
