Run at blinding speeds using wire anchors,
and escape from the cave in time.

The game has no heavy story, no tedious material collection, no complicated synthesis,
and no moving encounters and goodbyes.

We just keep on running.
Faster, faster, faster, faster

There are two ways to play: escape mode and time attack mode.
In escape mode, the objective is to escape from the cave within a set time.
In Time Attack mode, you can choose any course and compete for the time from start to finish.
Once you have a satisfactory time, upload your score and participate in the ranking.
Players' replay data can also be saved as ghosts and downloaded from the leaderboard.
(They can also be exchanged directly between users.)

Product received for free Oh, these hardcore games, where you need to climb out of the skin for nothing. The Nominal such is before us Cave Runner. When Playing for a bat, we must first of all not to kill the stalactites and stalagmites; For 3 seconds fly to the coin with additional time, which on the counter again raise the number 3; Fly to matches; Fly to the lantern, that's the whole process. Good Though there is a good visual style and sound-tech, which quickly get bored. And is it worth to do anything to harass yourself? Definitely not.

"Cave Runner"-could also appreciate, if possible, the potential of this game and a positive look, but alas the idea of the developer-to be high on the mega-hardball! http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1276789375 It is Unclear how in such a masterpiece to play, where the minimum for the passage give 3 seconds, and the third of the fifty levels, give 2 seconds, and even in addition to the level of Zalagan. The reason to buy a game-although for the minimum cost, personally, I do not see here, because there is no fixation and refinement of the game. And so the idea and design is not bad, the time limit could be and raised from 3 seconds to at least 8 or more.

Product received for free Put a finger up just in gratitude for the freebie key, although with the same success could put and a finger down, because the game is extremely not ideal. A few of the first levels here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxNsIOXu5IQ & the Main problem of the game is not that the passage of the level is given 3-5 seconds, the main problem is that it is extremely dergannaya and it can be very tired eyes. The developer Himself says that nobody had such a thing, but I have something, so be aware. As a hot, pain and a billion attempts The game is beautiful. As A Derannogo horror for the eyes, of course, everything is bad.

A Great hardcore 2D flyer about Batman's youth. 4 buttons (top/bottom/left/right), dark, forbidden for children matches and coins. The Goal of each of the 50 levels of the game-for the allotted seconds (3-10) to find matches that light the lantern in another part of the map, and for the remaining time to fly to this lantern. At The level there is only 1 coin that gives + 1 second to the total time. Some levels can be rubbed without it, time is enough. From implicit minuses-nonlinear complexity that in principle is not something negative. On the contrary, after half an hour of trying to pass one level you can relax on the next couple. It's the best thing!
