  title={SpelunkBots API - An AI toolset for Spelunky},
  author={Daniel Scales and Tommy Thompson},
  journal={2014 IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence and Games},
This paper describes the Spelunkbots API, a proposed benchmark for computational and articial intelligence algorithms. The benchmark, developed by the authors, is an API designed to allow for AI controllers to be written for the game Spelunky: a challenging 2D platforming game that requires players to commit quick reactive behaviours as well as long-term deliberation in order to maximise reward and minimise completion time. In this paper we highlight the features of the Spelunky game and a… CONTINUE READING
