The game begins with Mylo rocketing to the Altairian star system on a simple treasure hunt. But what happens is far more dangerous than even Mylo bargained for. He enters an underground world of chambers full of alien technology and traps. Strange alien creatures and robots inhabit the caves, protecting the priceless crystals from money-greedy explorers.

There are three unique episodes to the Crystal Caves saga: "The Trouble with Twibbles", "Slugging it Out", and "Mylo Verses the Supernova". Each episode has a unique story twist and graphics. Can you help Mylo strike it rich and quit his day job?Features
Alien Acrobat: Mylo can walk up-side-down - some levels have such low gravity that the recoil from Mylo's laser pistol can knock him into other dangers!

Brave New World: Lightless levels, falling hammers, egg-dropping alien bats, free-roaming slither eyes, web-shooting alien spiders, and much, much more!

Controller Support: Partial Xbox 360 Controller support.

Crystal Caves reviews and comments

Translated by

The early 90s: 3DRealms is still called Apogee. And distributes games on a Freeware basis. This means: The first World of the Game is available free of charge, the others can be ordered by Post or Fax. Many of these freeware discs flew around with me at the time-also Crystal Caves. The Game impresses with contemporary EGA Graphics, missing Music and PC speaker Sound. But also with precise Control and (from World 2) a demanding Degree of difficulty. As a Nostalgic, I am happy about the Reunion after more than 20 Years-and about the Possibility of finally being able to play World 2 and 3. But Younger Vintages should probably rather take on contemporary Platformers.

Crystal Caves is a 1991 3D action platformer from Apogee (3D Realms). We play a Boy who wants to grab valuable Crystals. To do this, we ball and bounce across various Levels. The Game is reminiscent of Super Mario World from 1990 with the 2 Levels, the Main Map and associated with it the Level areas. Overall, the Game plays pretty much like a Platformer, which is not particularly surprising, because the two Genres are closely related and the action platformers go through As their Own Subgenre only because of the Protagonists "ability to solve their Problems even at Gunpoint. Poor Mario mostly had to jump the Rogue upside down. Visually, the Game still loosely pockets many of these pseudo retro 8bit pixel trenches in The Pocket that drift around on Steam. The Controls are nicely precise and there Are plenty of Goodies grazing off. The Opponents are a bit hard to say, but we are not Italian Plumbers jumping around on Turtles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RycdxQoEmuA

Preface: The Review is part of a series of great research 3D Realms Anthology incorporating 32 retro games from the illustrious creator Duke Nukem and Shadow Warrior. In This series of reviews I will not evaluate something and write pros or cons, will only be a general description mixed with my opinion. Thumbs up or down will only show, I liked the game or not and no more. Game Description: Platformer 1991 year of release. We play for the space miner, who is the planet in search of treasure, In the hands of US blaster (with limited ammo) with which we will have to explore three planets. The Game is simple to ugliness and apogee to be honest this time I was disappointed. The Game presents three similar episodes, differing only in the interior rooms. There is no music. There are graphic bugs when all the colors in the game are blacked out. No positive impressions of the game has not brought and I definitely put the game finger down.
