Tastes Like Spelunky is one of the most popular variants of Spelunky. In TLS, you play as a mantrap, a carnivorous plant enemy from the original game.

  • TLS replaces all of the treasure with various food items which act identically.
  • The ghost is now a chef.
  • Music is different.
  • Olmec becomes "Meatmec", who has a different appearance.
  • Gold bricks, such as those seen in the Legendary City of Gold, are now bloody. This includes Xoc.
  • Udjat eye appears differently.
  • Key is now an oven mitt.
  • New items:
    • Death Mask -- Allows on-the-spot sacrifice of stunned/dead enemies to obtain ropes, bombs, bites.
    • Shuriken -- New weapon similar to the bow.
    • Ninja Suit -- Allows climbing walls and ceilings.
    • Jordans -- Upgraded spring shoes.
    • Grappling hook -- Reusable rope.
  • Bomb Paste now gives a lasso attack rather than sticky bombs.
  • Items cannot be used normally. They need to be eaten to use them -- this replaces any other item you have in that category.
  • Items and stunned/dead enemies can be eaten, using up 1 bite, and either granting powers or health respectively. You can only have one power in each category (weapon, active, passive).
  • Friendly mantraps in the second, third, and fourth areas. These can sell items.
  • Damsel and Tunnel Man are replaced with different colour mantraps.
  • Bounty hunter shopkeepers waiting at the level exit have been removed.
  • Shopkeepers will, however, shoot you on sight.
  • The sun, moon, and stars rooms have been changed.
  • Secret start chamber -- allows starting with any combination of items. Unlockable by getting high scored on the sun, moon, and stars rooms.
  • Enhanced level editor.
  • Water grants bites.
  • Kali grants different gifts:
    • 8: Random item. Cannot be Ankh or Kapala.
    • 16: Kapala.
    • 24: 50 ropes.
    • 32: 50 bombs.
    • 40: 50 bites + removal of eating cooldown.
    • 48,64,80,96...:4-8 bonus HP.
  • Damsels will run away from you.
  • The Spelunker and Tunnel Man are now enemies who each appear once per run.
