News, reviews and videos of my favourite games – I salute you!

A simple jumping platformer with a lot of potential.

Error Cave Detected is a platforming adventure where you play as what seems like an explorer (with a fedora), jumping on mushrooms and rocks to reach the end of caves. It has cute retro style pixel art which suits the game well, albeit no audio as of yet.

As it stands there’s a total of 9 different caves to platform, where you dodge anything from falling rocks (boxes?) to aliens shooting at you. The most fun to be had from the game I found was on the last level where you come across a minecart! Trying over and over to perfectly jump across each set of broken tracks is certainly a challenge, but very fun indeed. The physics themselves for jumping is fairly easy to get to grips with, you just need a running start between the first platform and judge how long you hold the spacebar for and you generally get to the platform you were aiming for with ease, at least after the first few times.

I look forward to seeing how this game progresses and am intrigued to see a story developing with the lead character and the aliens in the caves. Also the introduction of a soundtrack and more levels to come make it an intriguing  game, so go over to Gamejolt and give it a go and support the developer! 🙂
