Review: SF Cave
Version Reviewed: 1.0
Well what can I say? SF Cave is the most complete game I've ever played.
It has a control. Yep, that's it just the one! Press the spacebar and thrusters push you up. Take your finger off and gravity draws you downwards.
It has colours. Yes, two of them! Psycho-terror Black and err... Photoluminescent White.
It has smooth scrolling graphics. Really. The screen scrolls horizontally as you move through the cave.
It has a sprite! Well sort of. Your spaceship is the last pixel of a wavy black line that plots your progress.
It has horrible enemies. Well, in fact anything that's black and not yourself. This can either be the side of the cave or any of the various sized vicious and sadistic rectangles that litter your path... AVOID!
It has spectacular explosions when you crash. Well, a nice rings-in-a-pond effect at any rate.
There's no sound though. In space no one can hear you crash, or so it seems.
It remembers your highest score. Which cunningly you can generate a code for and post on
SF Cave is written in LGPL OPL, which means it's free. At least, free as a bird trapped in a futuristic and lethal cave.
This is an arcade game even I can play. Though I do get confused by the controls at times, it's so easy to take your finger off when you should be pressing down.
The bottom line? A nice, fun little game that everyone should download. Roll on the Series 60 version.
