The Cave - Any Takers?

Has anyone tried The Cave yet?

I know you're thinking "it's free, why not just try it yourself?" I just went through a major delete and add session, so I'm really not feeling like trying something just for the sake of trying it, especially if it means having to delete something else. I was just curious about this one in the sense that I wondered if it was as bad as it looks. Personally, from the screen shots I can't even tell what's going on.

Would have never gussed match-game from the screen shots.

Web Designer & Developer since 1999.

Games I highly recommend: CozyQuest, Gemmed, Jabeh, Blue Defense, Blue Attack, geoDefense, Hospital Havoc

Go figure...another match-3 game except this one doesn't look like one. You're supposed to match worms? I thought they were pebbles.

This game is probably the worst thing ever. Even the simple three-button menu is badly designed: the buttons are three rotating balls and you have to wait for the button label to be visible during the rotation to understand what the button does.

That's enough of a persuasion for me not to try it.

That's why i didn't dl it at all. Seriously those screens are hideous.

Fed up with all the casual games on the iDevice and in need of a new twist to the RPG genre? You can have an influence on the game with your ideas! For more info have a look at: Thread on TA / The Dev's Blog
