Is this piracy? No way. Derek Yu posted Spelunky's code to the community in free software form. The game was permanently free on PC (not Steam) and ported versions can be distributed for free.
In Spelunky, you play as the “spelunker” (“speleologist” in literal translation), the objective is to dig in caves to collect treasures and save damsels in distress. It is an absurdly difficult game and on mobile phones promises to be even more challenging.
Despite having procedurally created stages (each time you play, the game changes) Spelunky has several bosses.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IY7CYqyX-M0
