Gem Cave Adventure

Imagine an entire game built around the opening scenes of Raiders of the Lost Arc and you'd have Rastatronics' Gem Cave Adventure, a bare-bones platformer that puts you in the role of a jewel seeking adventurer, exploring your way through 50 caves, dodging obstacles and finding treasure along the way. The only problem is that, once you've taken your treasure, ancient traps become activated and you'll have to make it past them all if you want to cash in your find. Gem Cave Adventure is a great little game that, while it doesn't do anything new, it takes an old idea and swings with it.

I will never understand why people make a keyboard-only game and than make it so you need to use the mouse to progress to the next level. >:(

I think baba just likes to complain.

Once it got to the later levels, i had difficulty with the controls, partly due to my incompetence and partly due to controls. Swinging from one rock to another, i'd click and my rope would simply disappear instead of connecting to the next rock. Made it too frustrating to continue.

And up to this point (lvl 15) i was having fun.

Hi Jargon

I am playing about the same level as you now, and my probs are down to me not the rope.

Might be a silly thing to say but the rope does not automatically reconnect you have to click once to disconnect and again to reconnect.

Also for a while I thought I was bugged then

I realised there was a spiders web and had to drop and reconnect rope

More exploration to be had with this one tomorrow...

I'm a bit with baba44713 on the keyboard/mouse thing.

The R key that works inside the level doesn't work on the end level screen. For a game that's half about replaying levels to beat tight time limits it's annoying to have to click the retry button with the mouse. Why put the button there but disable the key?

As a workaround you can press space then the down key to get back into the level so it's not too bad.

@yaddab. This was the first level i had that dynamic. The previous levels swinging from one rope connect to another i didn't need two clicks.

Has anyone figured out how to beat the time trial for level 17? I always come up about 2 seconds over time.
