When some researchers get lost in a vast cavern the army calls on the perfect man for the job. That's you of course because um ... you've got a ship? Deep Underground by BenGAMEn, may not have all the most detailed story, but it does have plenty of upgrades, physic-based puzzles, and dangers around every corner. Fly your ship with ease using the [arrow] or the [WASD] keys and use your mouse to aim and fire. Not only does this keep you safe from the enemies, but you can carve pathways through the softer sand, and break apart boxes to free the treasured contents. Don't be too greedy though as you'll need some boxes to hold down switches or block lasers. But your main goal is to rescue the men in the orange jump suits. When you've collected all on the screen the exit will open up so you can go even deeper and claim the rightful title of hero.
Deep Underground at first feels like a game made for the younger kids. Things are simplistic and you're rather safe in your spaceship. Crashing into walls doesn't deal damage and the bats are more cute than scary. As you go along, however, the real fight comes in through the puzzles. You can't just go all free with your gun and blast out all the sand and you'll need to think yourself through some situations that a level or so ago you were just flying through. There is no need to grind in this game as coins are plentiful and any achievements that are unlocked as you go along also line your pockets full of cash. If you steadily upgrade as you go along you won't ever really need to worry about being tough enough to clear the level. While not a game that one could compete with their eyes closed Deep Underground is a casual game for those days where you just need a bit of a break from life and can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike.
