Game Overview

Cave of Monsters is a platform action game that places the hero, Hajime, in risky rescue mission. You are tasked to go into a monster infected cave to rescue a child who wandered in and became lost. You are not ill equipped for this mission. You have an array of Kung Fu moves to help in your quest to save the child.

Game Mechanics

The movement controls in Cave Of Monsters are similar to your typical platform game. There is a jump, an attack, and the movement keys. That is where the standard game play end, however. Hajime is gifted with many vicious attacks that help you punch and kick your way through this challenging platform game. Along the way you pick up new moves that are hidden through out the game. The cool part of this is that once you learn the moves you can use them at any point before or after you found them. This gives the game a small level of replayability. Using the powerful moves you find late in the game in the earlier levels helps to alleviate some of the stress caused by some of the more difficult enemies.

Besides the moves that you learn there are no other power ups or abilities to gather. The lack of a health power up in some parts of the game will make you a bit frustrated after you have gotten rather far.

Wall Jumping is a fun addition to this game. It gives the player the ability to get creative with some of the attacks and moves that he/she pulls off.

Some people complained about this feature being a bit of a pain to use. As long as you just stick to one wall and jump against it you will not have too many problems.

My Thoughts

I had a really good time playing this game. It took me quite a bit of time to master the more subtle strategies that this game offers.

You do not just run through this game. You have to use lots of timing and the right move at the right time to get through this game. This does get on your nerves after a while though.

I found that some of the moves were a bit tricky to pull off. If you needed to do a Boss Killer at the right second but you hit the wrong key you are doomed. Some times the controls felt a bit clunky and unresponsive. Given a couple of tries you could learn them though.

The graphics are all original. The character and background images were lovely. They had a nice 8bit feel to them that I just loved. The only things that bothered me were some of the enemies. They looked a bit flat and lifeless compared to others. All in all the graphics did the job that they were intended to do.

The sounds were there, and they were enough. Nothing super special, but I did not catch myself turning my speakers down either. I do believe that the midi files were originals! Yay!

Difficulty was there lemme tell you! Yeeeeeouch is it hard some times. I mean nothing that you can't get around after you learn the enemy patterns and a bit of patience. I was amazed by the fact the bosses actually had REAL weakness and tricks to beating! Just like in the old 8 bit days. Keep trying!

All in all a fun game. 4 levels that are enough to keep you playing with a smile. Just don't get to frustrated, and you are going to have a good time.

Sucky graphics. And on the first boss I keep turning around after I hit him. Then he kills me. And the gameplay is too hard. Get a life.

the graphics are good, but it wasn't actually fun
perhaps the first to minutes of sliding into stuff and killing it is fun, but it could be a lot better
the controls are hard, too

I found it far to annoying every time I died that I had to go back to the start of that stage. The controls are pretty complex and could be simplified.
The game has good graphics and sound unfortunately gameplay is the most important thing in a game and I did not really enjoy it.

Wow... this really takes me back to the old gays of videogaming. I haven't had this big a feeling of nostalgia in a long while! Graphics and music seemed to be uncut, so I give you a pat on the back for originality. Then, the character's moves were AWESOME! My favorite it the Jumping uppercut(Left/Right, Up, X), because it reminds me of Mario.
And the bosses? TOTALLY HARD! Too bad there aren't any health powerups(at least none that I've seen). Last thing, the plot didn't seem to have much depth, so that was the only downfall. So, if there might be a sequel, consider a stronger plot and health powerups.
Cheers to you anyways!

This is a great game...challenging with pretty good graphics (none of which I saw to be ripped) and although some of the monsters looked kinda cheesy (the 'rocket pencil that slides at you' and the 'dog that throws rocks')the boss that I saw was pretty neat looking. Not to mention, the main character was AWESOME! The only minor thing I noticed was the fact that it was kind of hard to wall-jump. I think the controls for the wall-jumping should be simplified for people like me :p
