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

Get it here: ... -the-cave/
Source code:

This game is included in the Mojonian Tales compilation which you can purchase at INL:

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...

Hint: the titles are different :D

@Controllerhead: Thanks for the input. Glad you enjoyed it.

It is fairly old, but now I can't remember when it was last updated. It was made for Mojonian Tales if memory serves right. Yes, lancuster helped quite a lot with bugs!
