Cally's Cave 2

Just saw a new image on Screenshot Saturday

This is the original


And this is the sequel


Not many other details, but I'm really impressed by how much improved the visuals are. I liked the first game's charm, but this is really a step up

And check out the first if you haven't, it was a great underrated gem

Thanks guys! It's still a WIP and as you can see I'm still using the old backgrounds as placeholders (for now). But here's a bit of what you can expect:
- new weapons and enemies
- weapons level up when you use them and change appearance
- less of an emphasis on buying from the shop - you find the weapons this time
- it's going to be MASSIVE - over 100 levels with a map you can fast travel on
- better check pointing system
- lots of crazy bosses!

We are working super hard on Cally 2 right now and are shooting for a release in March or April, I'll post a trailer and some screenshots in the TA forums soon!
Thanks for posting!

Well that was fast


Well the first was fun for alittle bit but it pretty much copied that other Platformer that I liked a lot... Omg I can't remember it right now. But anyways I guess I'll still be on the look out for this

You are probably thinking of "Random Heroes" or the sequel, which are both fantastic games and definitely big inspirations! They demonstrated how games like this could be done super well on the iOS platform, and those games plus the League of Evil series are pretty much my favorite iOS games.
I think you'll like where we take Cally's Caves 2, as it's still got a bit of the same flavour, but we are trying to take more inspiration from SNES platformers like Super Metroid (and I know using Super Metroid as an example isn't very original, but I just love those types of games too much!) Thanks for playing!
