App description: A deviously deep yet sublimely simple journey into imagination. Fly, young fly! Traverse the depths of Little Caves and rescue the mysterious Princess Pixel! But what will you find beneath the surface?

Little Caves: The Legend of Princess Pixel is a meticulously handcrafted puzzle adventure game. Conquer mind bending mazes, repair a nuclear lighthouse, soothe a dragon's sore throat, and even launch an Apollo spacecraft! But deeper than the puzzles are the experiences: friendship, loss, discovery, wonder, rejection, regret, triumph and the empty finality of destiny.


I can't explain how much this game exceeded my expectations. -jayg2015

a beautiful game. Acting as a middleman/messenger between a subterranean cat and a unicorn is only one example of the weird stuff Ive had to do, and its just as fantastic as it sounds. - 148games

This is a fun game with hours of play, I recommend getting this game if you enjoy good quality games with lots of fun. Plz make more games like this -Zookn

I think it adds a free roam massive scale adventure-puzzle app which iOS has been sadly lacking. -Mfiempire

I just want to say that I love this game so much.. It's hard not to fall in love with the artwork, the "puzzles" are gripping, story is very amusing and the dialogs are hilarious (on the same time as they can be very deep or even dark)! .. So immersive! Anyway, one of the best games I have ever played! 5/5! -Daniel

It's MASSIVE. And there's a lovely surprise at the end -TheGreatEscape

it's not what you do, it's the way that you do it." Ambiance, narrative, done well, can elevate any simple idea. -Gabriel


Touch anywhere to activate the joystick. This is your center position, use small movements to control the direction you fly. Our control allows nuanced flight, and reduces manual interference.

Fly wherever you like! Learn what you can, search where you dare, push what needs pushing, chat with who's chatty, and use that item bag whenever it glows!

Plays best on iPhone 5 or later, iPad Air or later, and iPad Mini 2 or later.
Message us on Facebook or @RecordShed if you experience any bugs so we can fix them as fast as possible. :) No asking for hints, though! That would be cheating. At best youll get a cryptic haiku or something.

This game has so much to offer.

Hours of pixel fun on my first run. I literally played until my phone died

Yeah the game is really huge. I bought this game a while back and really enjoyed it. It's MASSIVE. And there's a lovely surprise at the end where the game zooms out to show you the entire maze world.

Good game! Free for the weekend.

Great game concept and art and sound. Though control sucks at tight places and mazes.

Quick walkthrough: find the princess! :-) and then there is more ...

To get oil: find all 15 flax and fill the machine. İt will spill oil.
SandCorp flyers: bring it to the angry fly at the train rails; mail the letter, take sand and return.
Get spork from helping the cat and horse. Use all 3 items on sat/phone. Blue fly comes and fixes it.
Get the quarter from near your house (in a hidden cave next to the weird car parking stuff). Put quarter in phone and enjoy the real end

Or is it?
