Caveby fueelin - 48 Hour Compo Entry
I've added a link to an updated, post-compo version for anyone interested. I fixed a bunch of bugs, the biggest of which led to the 'instant death' people have been experiencing. I also did some play testing and tweaking to make the game more fun/playable. This version is actually beatable, so please try it out if you want to experience more of the game
Cave is a 2D, top-down cave exploration game with procedurally generated levels. Dig and battle your way to the bottom! Hope you enjoy!
You've fallen into a cave and can't get back out. Your only option is to follow the following water at your feet, deeper and deeper.
Keep your eye out for treasure and tools as you progress. You can dig through certain materials, depending on what tools you have - watch for the green highlight and press SPACE.
Be careful of the unfriendly denizens of the cave, which can be very dangerous! Get near them and press SPACE to fight back!
Arrow Keys - Move
Space - Dig through block/Attack enemy
F1 - Toggle Tutotial on/off
You can go back to levels you've already completed to grab any items you missed.

MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE
TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
