The CaveReview

The cave is an adventurous game from the mind of Ron Gilbert (Maniac Mansion, The Secret of Monkey Island) which is about seven adventurers who seek answers to their life’s questions inside the cave.  You will have three of the seven characters to choose from, a Time traveller, the Twins, the Knight, the scientist, the Hillbilly, the adventure and the Monk.  

The story of cave depends on the characters you select because each and every character has its own unique special ability enabling them to solve special puzzles to gain access to their own themed locations, for example the Hillbilly can breathe underwater. You will have to control three characters if you’re playing by yourself or choose three characters among your friends, where you will control one character and your two friends will control the rest of the two characters. Once you have selected your three characters you can’t go back and change your characters.

You will uncover the characters stories as well as seeking out collectibles symbols throughout the game and collecting them gives you the full background of what led them to the Cave. The puzzles are challenging and very inventive, most situations require you to find items that will help you go past the barrier and the solutions are not that obvious. In The Cave, light platforms move you around the levels and you will explore the cave in search of keys, objects, and other things which means to solving the game's complicated puzzles. The plat forming controls feel imprecise and, at times, a bit awkward, but there are never any moments that require you to be incredibly accurate to progress. You might just get a little frustrated after failing several attempts to jump into small objects.

It’s a little bit annoying playing by yourself because sometimes you might have to move the characters manually by going back and get them where you left them that means you have to remember where you left them and running them through the same path. This significantly slows down the game in some areas leaving you wishing there was quick command button. Having one or two people to play with in the game is the best way to play the Cave however the screen never splits, so sometimes extra players may have to sit out of the action for a few moments while your group switches between tasks, but the nature of figuring out the puzzles keeps the game entertaining whether you are actively playing or not.

However the Cave is entertaining and very inventive adventure all the way through. The characters' stories make you want to uncover the dark history of each one of them, and the challenging puzzles are rewarding to conquer. Ron Gilbert has created a truly memorable adventure title that will keep you glued to your chair until all of the fascinating characters' stories have been told.
