The Cave

DoraThe Cave is both the title of DoubleFine's latest action adventure, and the name of your gracious host and narrator. Not a nickname, mind... it's very literal. The Cave is a sentient wonder of nature, and within lies treasure, adventure, and peril. Seven strangers have assembled to plumb its depths and uncover its secrets. But whether they survive is up to you as you create your own team of spelunkers to work together, solve puzzles, and maybe even get to the bottom of the Cave entirely... and themselves. What? Too dramatic? Well along the way, you'll also have to rescue a mining cart full of vittles, tantalize a death-breathing beast with an enormous hot dog, track down ill-gotten treasures to sell in a gift shop, and bodily hurl yourself off more cliffs than you can shake a stick at.

The CaveThe game controls with a combination of keyboard and mouse that can be configured to your liking under the options ranging from simple [WASD] to almost entirely mouse-driven. At the start of the game, you'll be presented with all seven potential characters to assemble your spelunking squad, so spend some time experimenting with each one, or just pick the three you like the best and take them each into the Cave to begin your adventure. Think carefully, since once you go past a certain point you won't be able to change your party, and everyone has their own unique ability to help out. The Twins, for instance, can leave a ghostly double of themselves behind to hold switches and such, while the Adventurer can use her grappling hook to snag onto certain bits of scenery and swing past obstacles. Once inside, your party will have to work together to proceed, using each other's special talent or simply muscle mass to manipulate the environment together and solve puzzles. Though any combination of characters will allow you to complete the game, who you pick will have an impact on what you get to see and where you get to go.

So what's in the Cave? Well... a lot. But don't worry. Whether you drown, get crushed, get devoured, are impaled, electrocuted, or otherwise dead, there's no dying in the Cave, and you'll be teleported back to a safer spot close to where you kicked the bucket. Since most of the puzzles in the game will require a lot of experimentation, this is a good thing. Sometimes you'll need to use a bit of simple platforming skill. Sometimes you'll have to trigger different mechanisms all at the same time. Sometimes you'll need to set a trap for a giant killer crystal beast. There's a lot more inside the Cave than rocks and cobwebs. As you play, keep an eye out for glowing drawings representing your party members... when you click on them while the appropriate character is active, you'll get a bit of insight into their history. Of course, for the whole story, you'll have to go deeper...

The CaveAnalysis: The Cave is one of those games that's more than just a pretty face, but is still quite pretty indeed. The visuals are, of course, cartoonish, but it's hard to care when the areas you'll explore are so beautiful. Lighting plays a big role in it, with the rich colours and imaginative design makes this a game you'll love to explore every nook and cranny in. Perhaps even more impressive is the fluid, expressive animation, from the way characters gesture and move their faces naturally as they talk, to the way the Twins quickly help each other work in tandem to do everything from climbing to swimming. It might be one of the best animated computer games around... it's certainly one of the most personality-packed, brought to life with superb voice acting, and in a primarily puzzle-driven adventure, that's extremely important.

The controls are... decent. Ish. With no real way to entirely disable one set of controls in favour of the others, you can find yourself accidentally activating abilities or swapping heroes. Combined with how awkward the platforming can sometimes feel, especially given how slowly your characters climb, this means traveling to and from places is sometimes more frustrating and tedious than it should be. It helps, then, that the actual gameplay itself is really, really fun. While I wish that more of the puzzles you came across used your party's unique abilities in more interesting ways, the bizarre nature of the obstacles you have to overcome is offset by how tightly designed each area is. Though each Cave area is fun, however, the game really shines once you begin to explore each of the locations dedicated to your party members. There, the game executes some great storytelling, allows you to interact with more memorable characters, and offers up some truly beautiful level and environmental design that provides a welcome break from the rest of the Cave.

Ultimately, how much you're going to enjoy the Cave comes down to how much you like clever environmental puzzles and DoubleFine's signature brand of humour, and both are in remarkably fine form here. It's an exercise in marrying absurd jokes with some surprisingly well-handled storytelling, and once you finish you'll want to go back through again with an entirely new party to see what areas you missed. It really is a fantastic example of puzzle-based adventuring, and has more style and charm in a single level than most games have in their entire package. The Cave is one of those games that's an easy recommendation for players who like to think, laugh, and be constantly surprised, and will keep you busy and mesmerized for a long time.

I watched the trailer. Considering that cave's sense of humor, I think its last name must be Johnson.

This looks really cute, especially since it's a Double Fine game.

The only thing that bugs me is that, as a multi-platform release, now I have to try and decide which platform to pick from. WiiU seems nice, for the superior D-Pad, but I'm not sure if the tablet-screen offers bonus features that improve or detract from the game. I like that Steam offers achievements, since it's more fun to complete tasks when you know the computer's keeping score, but does the WiiU version do this in any capacity?

Do any of the versions suffer from bugs the other versions do not?

Similar questions as SirNiko. IF the PC controls are kinda nasty (which it sounds like) how are the 360 or Wii-U controls? Anyone know of any good comparisons between releases?

The PC controls are REALLY bad. I can't do the platforming stuff- horribly optimized. That said, my boyfriend is playing the PC version with a USB controller and says it plays fantastically. So there's that. I have a PS2 USB controller, better blow the dust off and see how it fares on my own machine.

An impulse buyer as always I bought it as soon as I'd seen the trailer and have spend the last couple of hours playing through it (with Time Traveller, Knight and Scientist, and it is a very very funny game.

The writing is extremely enjoyable as is the narrative layout - a very entertaining angle on characterisations and the VO has made me laugh quite a few times.

Controls are, admittedly, a tiny bit fiddly BUT not unbearable and to be honest I've only had a few complaints, nothing game breaking (at one point my knight got stuck in a wall but a restart of the game cleared that.

Currently a tiny bit stuck on the 'Time Travel' level (museum/prehistoria anyone?)

But it's a very very enjoyable game throughout.

Highly recommendable.

    • Switch to a different character and use them to push the crate to the right to position it on top of the elevator.

    • Return to the person waiting by the Lever and have them hold it to raise the elevator again, lifting the crate up to the platform at the middle of the ladder.

    • Push the crate over the right edge to drop it down on to the monster's back, causing her to roar into the recorder.

  4. Walk back to the front of the Crystal Cave Monster and pick up the Tape Recorder on the ground.

Escape!

  1. Return to the Monster Hunter by the vending machine at the food court.

    • Drop the Tape Recorder nearby to play the recording of the monster's roar.

    • After the Monster Hunter runs off to chase the monster, use the vending machine and then pick up the Hot Dog it dispenses on to the floor.

  2. Walk back to the front of the Crystal Cave Monster.

    • When you get close enough while holding the Hot Dog, she will start follow the trail of the scent.

    • Be careful not to run too fast and lose her or to let her get too near, or she will eat you and the Hot Dog. If that happens, you can go back to the vending machine to pick up another one.

    • The small Jug can contain up to 4 gallons of water and the large Jug can contain up to 7 gallons.

  5. Follow these steps to solve the puzzle:

    • Pick up the Empty 7 Gallon Jug and fill it at the Pool of Water.

    • Pour the water from the 7 Gallon Jug into the 4 Gallon Jug.

      • Because the 4 Gallon Jug is too small, you will have 3 remaining gallons of water inside the 7 Gallon Jug.

    • Set the 7 Gallon Jug down on the floor and pick up the 4 Gallon Jug.

    • Empty the 4 Gallons of Water down the Drainage Gate.

    • Set the 4 Gallon Jug down on the floor and pick up the 7 Gallon Jug.

    • Pour the three gallons of water inside the 7 Gallon Jug into the 4 Gallon Jug.

    • Fill the 7 Gallon Jug at the Pool of Water again.

    • Pour the water from the 7 Gallon Jug into the 4 Gallon Jug.

      • Since the 4 Gallon Jug is already holding 3 gallons of water, it will only fill with 1 more gallon, leaving 6 gallons of water remaining inside the 7 Gallon Jug.

    • Place the 7 Gallon Jug containing 6 gallons of water on to the Scale (the monkey statue's free hand) to complete the challenge.

Repairing the Pipes

  2. Keep pushing the blue crate all the way left to the rock wall.

  3. Hop on the crate to reach the ledge.

  4. Insert the Straight Pipe into the vertical Pipe Socket at the middle of the bamboo pipe above the ledge.

  5. Return to the Hermit's house.

    • Climb the upper right platform above where the Hermit is sitting.

    • Pick up the Cross Pipe on top of the platform.

  6. Go back down to the ledge where you placed the first pipe into the socket.

  7. Walk left past the deflated balloon, jump on to the wooden platform, climb the rope, and then walk right to reach the second Pipe Socket.

    • Insert the Cross Pipe into the socket to repair the gap.

    • Go up the right ladder to find another Cave Painting.

    • Pick up the L Shaped Pipe on the ground beside the right wall.

  8. Go back to the rope and continue left.

    • Certain characters can find a Cave Painting above the rock on the left side of the ladder.

  9. Drop down and walk left to discover the third pipe socket.

    • Place the L Shaped Pipe into its matching socket.

Opening the Pirate Gate

  1. Move right and climb down the ladder.

  2. Walk left to the Cave Tour sign, then turn the Water Valve to fill the pool of water.

  3. Continue left to return to the boat on the shore.

    • Push the boat to the right and into the pool of water, then jump inside to ride the boat to the other side.

    • Hop out and pull the boat to the right and into the second pool of water behind the large metal door.

  4. Jump into the boat and then drop over the metal door. From there, head right to the ladder and climb down.

    • If the Adventurer is in your group, go right to the pool of lava.

    • Use the Grapple ability to swing on the hook to the island at the middle of the lava, where you'll discover a Cave Painting.

  5. Walk all the way left until you reach a pirate gate blocking three gunpowder kegs.

    • Beside the gate you'll find the third Pirate Flag lever.

  6. Switch to a different character in your group.

    • Walk to the first Pirate Flag lever you found on top of the rock, then pull and hold the lever.

  7. Switch to the third member of the group.

    • Move them to the second Pirate Flag lever you passed beside the Cave Tour sign, then have them hold that lever as well.

  8. Switch back to the first person waiting at the pirate gate.

    • Use them to pull the third and final Pirate Flag lever to open the gate.

Detonating the Gun Powder Kegs

  1. Push the first gunpowder keg to the left to uncover the Femur on the ground.

    • OPTIONAL: Pick up the Can of Corn at the right shore of the island.

    • Walk down to the pirate gate area by the gunpowder kegs.

    • Place the Can of Corn on the grate under the boulders in the ceiling.

    • When you complete the following steps to explode the gunpowder kegs, the blast will also destroy the Can of Corn, earning you the second half of the "Creamed Corn" achievement.

  2. Grab the nearest gunpowder keg again and pull it to the right until you reach a pile of four small stones on the ground (between the grate on the left and the ladder on the right).

    • Leave the barrel there and return to the other kegs.

  3. Pull a second gunpowder keg until it's half way between the first barrel and the grate in the floor.

    • Note the loose boulders in the ceiling directly above the grate.

  4. Go back to the third and final keg and push it directly on top of the grate under the boulders.

  5. Push the farthest right gunpowder keg further to the right until you reach the pool of lava.

    • The heat from the lava will light the fuse on the keg.

  6. Quickly push the powder keg to the left, then release it at the top of the slope to roll it down the hill.

    • The keg will stop rolling at the four stones and then detonate.

    • If you positioned the kegs correctly, the blast will set off a chain reaction and explode the other nearby barrels, caving in the boulders in the ceiling.

Escaping the Island Without The 4th Wheel

  1. Return to the boat behind the metal wall. After the explosion, the pool of water will have drained from the floor.

    • If the Adventurer is on your team, you can use the shortcut to quickly get to the boat. Walk to the right side of the metal barricade and use the Grapple ability to swing yourself up the wall and across the pit.

  2. Pull the Lever at the lower left corner of the pit to raise the barricade.

  3. Push the boat right all the way to the platform under the deflated balloon.

  4. Hop up to the ledge to the right, then use the Water Valve to the right of the balloon.

    • The steam from the water will inflate the balloon and lift it to the surface.

  5. Walk back outside and go to the balloon, which can now be found just to the right of the second Pirate Flag lever.

  6. Push the boat down the hill to the right shore of the island.

    • The old Hermit will jump right into the boat as soon as it hits the water, so you'll have to find a way to get rid of him.

  7. Pick up the Box of Crackers on the shore.

  8. Find the Hermit's pet parrot sitting on the rocks to the left of the first Pirate Flag lever.

    • Show the Box of Crackers to the parrot to lure him on to your character's shoulder.

    • Move them to the Hermit's house as well to join the character with the parrot.

    • The parrot will hear the barking and start to immitate the sound.

  12. Switch back to the character with the parrot.

    • Drop down over the right ledge of the building (do not go over the left side, because the parrot will abandon you if you swim through the water), then go to the right shore of the island.

    • When the Hermit hears the barking parrot, he'll jump out of the boat and run back to his house.

  13. Move all three characters of your group into the boat to travel to the next area.

Chapter 5 - Return to The Cave Souvenirs

Finding Another 3 Trinkets

  1. Select one of the characters in your group to approach the Gift Shop Clerk.

  2. Pick up the Novelty-Sized Key he leaves on the floor for you again.

  3. Walk left to the "Employees Only" Door.

    • Use the Novelty-Sized Key to open the lock.

  5. Carefully drop onto the stone island, then drop down again to the wooden platform.

  6. Walk right past the ladder and then jump on to the ledge with the mine car track to find the Miner.

    • Pick up the Golden Nugget at his feet.

  7. Switch to a different character in your group to search for the second trinket.

    • Continue right, then drop down the series of wooden platforms.

    • Move right past the wooden ledges and floor buttons.

    • Climb up the ladder to find the Hermit's small island.

    • Pick up his dog Spanky.

Returning to the Gift Shop & Making a Difficult Choice

  1. Go down the ladder, then continue right to the elevator.

  2. Push the Elevator Call Button to move the elevator down.

  3. Switch to the other two group members and move them on top of the elevator platform.

  4. Switch back to the character standing at the button.

    • Push the Elevator Call Button again, then quickly stand on the platform before it lifts to carry all three group members up.

  5. Climb back up to return to the gift shop.

  6. Give the trinket your character is holding in exchange for one of his items.

  7. At this point, you have a choice between receiving the good ending or the bad ending for your character.

    • If you decide to exit through the door and up the ladder with the Gift Shop Clerk's item in hand, your character will earn the bad ending.

      • When all 7 characters have played through the game and taken the option for the bad ending, you will receive the "Corruption" achievement.

    • The other choice is to give the item back to the Gift Shop Clerk. Speak to him a few times to return your character's object.

    • Continue through the exit door and climb the ladder empty-handed to earn the good ending to your character's story.

      • If all 7 characters play through the game and take the good ending option, you will receive the "Redemption" achievement.

As others have said, the game is great! The controls are bad (PC) but not game breaking, what matters are the puzzles(which are independent of the controls here) and the humor. The puzzles are usually nice, but I can't say that they glow with ingenuity. The humor is fantastic.

Funny joke that I need to share with someone:

You find a dead clown eventually, and if you press its nose it makes a typical horn sound. If you keep pressing repeatedly the caption changes from "Clown" to "Aroused Clown". Oh god, that killed me...

@Jim Le Fevre: Here's where I got stuck for a while

there's a part there that's really stupid. In the past you should get someone to keep pushing the stone ball (right or left) and change to another character in other time. The stupid part is that I thought of that, but it's not enough to get the character holding the stone in place, you have to hold the keys you use to push when changing to another character.

Hope that helps :)

Responding to some of the earlier questions:

- The Xbox version controls have been great, aside from the slow ladder/rope climbing as noted by the reviewer. My 5 1/2 year old plays with me and he can move and switch characters just fine (though the puzzles are too tough for him).
- There are achievements on the Xbox version, like the Steam version.

I'm not sure why would anyone play this on the Wii if they had an Xbox.

I enjoyed parts of the game but unfortunately the ending is a real let-down. I still enjoyed playing it mainly because I liked the graphics but there really is no real ending at all.
