You are trapped in the cave. Try your best to climb as high as you can! Jump to reach further platforms while using your hookshot to climb. Make use of the environment, and watch out for traps and monsters.

Note that this is an endless platformer, with no levels. A score is given to you at the end of each run through to compare yourself to the leaderboard - much like the sweet old arcade days!

Walk > A, D
Jump > W, J
Hookshot > K

Walk > Arrow left, right
Jump > Arrow up or Z
Hookshot > X



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Really good game.

This is some fun game. All i can say about the music is "OMG" that back ground music rules (will make a good ring tone too). Any where we can download that track? The game was pretty responsive and fast paced. Takes some ability to play it much more to survive it. 10/10 Here is your Well deserved KAS (Kids Approval Seal)

awesome game

there's nothing bad that can be said about this game! I love the old school feel like others have said, the controls work awesome, and the soundtrack is perfect....well done!


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I like this

Hey i really like your game. The Controls are good and the music fits just right. HOWEVER, i hate when you americans or whatnot use Z and X for games. On German (or European) Keyboards those Keys are awefully far away from each other so you have to break your fingerbones to reach both effectfully. Please use A and S or whatever. I mean theres so many keys, why use Z and X.

Peace and out

Heya, I'm actually not from America, but I get your point. You can use WASD, with J&K instead, does that not work for you?


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Love it!

Like you said, it has a very old school arcade feel to it. And it's a lot harder than it looks too, one mistake and you're a goner, especially higher up.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


This game is amazing, absolutely love it. One suggestion would be to have the items permanently upgrade your jump and hook-shot, not just temporarily. Still love it thought!
