New(ish) game: Cave

Post by na_th_an » Sun Aug 30, 2020 2:59 am

We just released Cave, a small puzzle platformer for the NES.

Get it here: http://www.mojontwins.com/juegos_mojono ... -the-cave/
Source code: https://github.com/mojontwins/Cave_NES

This game is included in the Mojonian Tales compilation which you can purchase at INL: http://www.infiniteneslives.com/mojoniantales.php

The game is free to play and also free to reproduce [CNROM] (as long as I get a couple of free copies :D).

Finally! A female protagonist i can really get behind :roll:

This was fun! Gave me a Goonies II vibe.

The game feels great. Nice and polished. Controls are tight. Music is cool. Graphics are tasteful. Puzzles were interesting. Difficulty curve was appropriate. I like the heart refill system. If i had rented this from Blockbuster 30 years ago it would have been a Blockbuster night. If it were longer i would have kept playing for sure. Awesome game! Congrats!

...I never figured out that third engine piece puzzle. Maybe i'll try for "true ending" at some point.

No savestates here man i'm a purist =)

With the amount of code, graphics and heroine reuse, it's getting really hard to tell your games apart from each other...
