- Great design
- Great casual game idea
- Unresponsive screen touch.
A simple yet interesting puzzle game.
Shadow Cave has a simple premise: drag with your finger the light ball from the start to the end of the cave without touching the walls. In order to open the gates that prevent you to arrive to the exit, you have to pick up little blue shiny balls you'll find on your way, usually too close to the sharp edges of the walls.
Graphics are also simple, yet cute, and there's a nice work to create a musical atmosphere. However, touch response, which should be the key point of the game needs actually to be improved a lot to enjoy this game the most. There a lot of levels divided among nine worlds (caves, indeed) and you can even find final bosses, which are quite surprising and challenging. Overall, it isn't a difficult game and it may even be recommended for kids or people who don't want to rack their brains out. It's worth of checking it out, though it gives the feeling that it's a good idea spoiled by minor technical issues that we hope they'll be fixed in incoming updates.
IN SHADOW CAVE, you must guide your character through dark caves, trying to escape the level without smashing into the darkness. What starts as an easy premise, quickly becomes a challenging adventure as paths become more tortuous and puzzles more complex, putting your reflexes to the test.
THE FIRST chapter includes 9 unique, an epic and intense boss escape, hand-drawn levels and original custom soundtrack, all inspired by games like Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, Coma, Another World, Machinarium or Limbo. Chapter 2 will bring more puzzles, more level styles and surprising twists to the playing mechanic. This adventure is only getting started!
IF YOU enjoy escape games, don't let this adventure pass you by. Escaping these 9 caves will put your reflexes and intuition to the test.

Wish some users would STFU about shadow games like this. .I enjoyed it, but just wish the creator would hurry up with part 2. .
To short to easy just crap
Asus Nexus 7 - I like the low file size, be sure to keep it low. Graphics are great. Colors used are awesome. Gameplay seems smooth but may need some type of tweakage with the control, it seems a little laggy. Maybe change the look of the tiny yellow thin
Its so cool for me and its addicting games... Nice app and I hope you will release the chapter 2 in no time...
Its mostly an average game because of that really hard boss
