RPG's like Mass Effect, Skyrim, Dragon Age, etc., are typically my games of choice, but The Cave sounded intriguing. The cheap price and pre-order discount didn't hurt.

Players choose three of the seven available characters, each with unique talents. I'm currently playing with a knight who has the power of invincibility; an adventurer who can swing a grappling hook; and twins who have the ability to duplicate themselves. When you access special areas of the cave, you uncover scenes from your characters' pasts. Also, each character has a special quest that occurs in a unique area of the cave. (The knight is tasked by a king to defeat a dragon and retrieve an amulet for his daughter.)

You switch control between the three characters as you advance through the cave. Often, teamwork is required as you must position the characters in certain areas or have them perform tasks simultaneously. There are monsters, but there is no combat. Instead, you must figure out how to get past monsters with strategy alone. For one early example, you "battle" a dragon with a hot dog and a claw like those found in an arcade game.

Controls are simple, consisting of moving side to side, jumping, climbing, and picking up and using various objects. Characters can only hold one object at a time, and certain objects are needed to advance through different areas of the cave. Because it's not always obvious which objects must be used, you will often find yourself doubling back to retrieve dropped objects. This is a new type of game for me, so I've found myself running around aimlessly quite a bit, experimenting with different combinations of characters and objects to try to advance.

So far, I've experienced no glitches. What I have experienced are clever puzzles, beautiful visuals, and a game that will lend itself to re-playability as I will want to try out all of the characters.

Tip - If you get stuck, the Games Radar website has some helpful walkthroughs and a nice map that gives a layout of the entire cave system.

stars 3 0. CB192240710  The Cave [Online Game Code] Review Fun game, but glitchy., February 7, 2013

I love the old Lucas Arts adventure games, like Monkey Island, and I was looking for something similar. The Cave is not like the old adventure games, in that the player does not pick objects and decide how to interact with them (ex: open, talk to, pick up, give, etc.) However, the game is imaginative and contains entertaining puzzles. Also, each character has their own dark history that slowly unfolds as you play. Because parts of the game only accessible by certain characters and only three can be played at a time, there is potential for many hours of gameplay.

The game is not without bugs. I was on the second to last level of the game when I began having trouble moving an object. My character kept walking forward and dropping the object when I just wanted it to grab the object and walk backwards. I learned how to get out of that trap, but then one of my characters fell through the floor and vanished. I cannot retrieve him and I must have three characters to leave the level. The game auto-saves and there is not an easy way to go to earlier saves (you have play programmer to do that). So, in my case I have to start over from level one, which is highly disappointing.

So, buy this game at your own risk. It IS fun and it seems that other people have made it to the end without any trouble. At the same time it is a newly released game and it might be better to buy it after it has been "out there" a while so the bugs can be worked out.

It's a Double Fine game. Need I say more?—No, I needn’t but I will anyway. It's their classic story-driven, point-and-click game with lots of quirky things to do. If you are trying for all the trophies or if you should decide to learn all the character's stories—which I do encourage since that's the best part of the game—it could get repetitive as you’ll need to start from the entrance of the cave with a whole new group of spelunkers. Though, that doesn’t mean it becomes boring since the location and story sequence changes depending on the individual characters in your group. And, as always, this game is layered with the creators’ humor and had me laughing out loud throughout the entire game no matter how many times I go back and play it.

Narration and style of animation are, in my opinion, superb. And controls are simple enough. I use a Samsung ATIV Book 8 880Z5E and I've encountered ZERO glitches and am very happy with this purchase.

Definitely a great game! Highly recommended!
