NOTE: The older Construct 2 API plugin for Newgrounds medals seems to be bug out now, I don't have the source anymore so I can't fix it I'm afraid.

Dandy Cave Adventures is a prototype for the much updated Dandy - Cave Explorer, coming to Android and IOS early 2016 :)

A very hard autorun platformer about a cave exploring Dandy. Gather all of the gold coins and avoid obstacles to progress through the game!

This game uses the mouse or touchscreen of your device.

How to Play -------------------

Left click or Tap screen to jump. Avoid obstacles and bounce off of walls to get through each level!

Esc to go to main menu at any time

R to reset any level

Finished the game and wasn't awarded my achievements :|
P.S: I understand that the api has flawed and the developer was no longer in possession of the files since ~2016.

When the avatar falls it travels an inconsistent distance, this is most apparently on level 8 if you simply walk forward.

The frequent use of 4-2 pixel timing windows, necessary for progression pairs poorly with; the execution delay, the common failure to read jump inputs,
the visual jump-animation's sync with its frames, when it block inputs, |And the entities on screen that due to their rendering (and the constant wall checking) both slightly increase delay & the chance for input failure, and are hard to avoid due to their speed.

The design of needing to jump again just before the animation reaches the ground and factoring in the varying delay, should have been polished a little bit more in testing, since it is the key enabling (not the unique/defining) mechanic.

Acheiving the flawless medal is only possible on pc :/ ☆4.5/10


Game freezes when finishing level 8. Tried it twice... You can go back to the menue with escape but when trying to load it freezes again. Otherwise its a nice 1-button platformer.
Also medals dont work. Maybe for construct2 in general?

Still nice game.

It's infuriatingly awesome. I love it. The music is fantastic.
