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!

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!

Highly addicting.

An exceptional vertical scroller with excellent music, controls, and atmosphere.

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.
