Cavern is a dungeon crawler in the vein of genre classics like Rogue and Nethack - but with original game world not based on any existing roguelike. Each level is randomly generated so no two games are the same.


Cavern was full of ancient treasure which surface people dug up to keep their high standards of living. Caves were inhabited by hostile creatures of the nether but Mystery Object of the surface kept the evil weak with it's power. Somehow, creatures of the deep managed to steal the Mystery Object and took it to the deepest levels of the Cavern. Now You, the Hero, must retrieve it before it's powers are used against the Surface!

I used to dislike turn based games

Then I played Cavern. I didn't understand it the first couple times I played but once you start learning and understanding all the little quirks and tricks in the game it's really fun. The maps are all procedurally generated so every time you play you'll have to do some exploring. I hope this game comes out with a content update that adds secret floors, more things to explore similar to the water fountains and bookshelves, or more character designs. I like the fact that the ghosts in the cavern are named after other player's characters that died. It's kinda like dark souls how you can summon a ghost to fight with you except instead of a real player it's a dumb cpu. They're useful anyway.

Love it but..

Only played for about an hour but really love it so far..however, I used a scroll of town portal and now my character is unable to move. The app support link just takes you to like an advertisement with a leaderboard so not really sure how to report a bug. Is happening every time I teleport to town..and I end up in the walls when I teleport back.

Elegant and accessible

It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of Nethack but it streamlines the roguelike genre into a very smooth yet still satisfyingly deep game. The controls are the most elegant of any roguelike I’ve played. My suggestions for improvement would be: 1. More items, especially weapons. Not a lot, but the current selection feels a little repetitive. 2. More cross-class applicability for the attributes. For instance, something the wizard can do with strength other than just carry more stuff. 3. More shops at random intervals in the cavern.
