Caveblazers – Spelunky meets Risk of Rain
Store Page – Caveblazers
Caveblazers is a Rouge-Like platformer made to challenge the player. Journey into the mysterious caves where you will encounter enemies such as Slimes, Orcs, and Goblins that can drop a vast variety of Weapons, Magical Items, and Blessings. Make friends along the journey but be careful, your friends can only survive so many hits until they are left a bloodied Corpse under the goo of a slime.
What Is Caveblazers?
Caveblazers is a indie game created by Rupeck Games and published by The Yogscast. The game takes place in a cave that had just recently been discovered, the cave was said to hold “unimaginable power”. You play as an adventurer who wants to explore the cave and find out what power and riches hide inside of the cave but you’re not the only one looking for the riches and power that is hidden within the cave. As you make it further and further into the caves you find that there are orcs, slimes, and more creatures delving inside friendly and hostile.
This game doesn’t hide its self behind a point where you have won the game and its just a cakewalk. Instead the difficulty of this game increases as you get stronger and stronger. No matter what gear you have this game will find a way to kill you, by using explosions, arrows, spikes, un-expected bosses, and even catching yourself on fire with an arrow that freezes you for 5 seconds leaving you vulnerable for hostiles to get easy hits on you. You will die and start again so many times sometimes getting lucky runs and other times getting hit with 6 explosives right off of the bat after going to find a friend that may or may not be hidden deeper inside of the cave.
Caveblazers whist having a great combat, walking, jumping, and climbing mechanics has one big problem that could turn some players away from this game. While there is so much fun to be had due to the Spelunky and Risk of Rain vibes that this game has given off to its players the story-line built into the game is something completely different. The storyline of this game runs like it was made by a younger person who doesn’t have a vast knowledge of good story-telling tips and tricks. This game uses words in the story-line such as “Faplord” which makes the story-line seem a whole lot less serious when it comes to story-line.
