Well, this is this year's Christmas competition game. Before I start to actually explain the game, I'd like to give a little background. Although it uses some edited versions of sprites from My Distraction, the engine or other code is in no way based on that. And yes, the title is a complete play on Cave Story. K, now to the game.

Cavern Tale is an arcade-style platformer in which you must rescue a person and a dog, then return them to the surface of the cave. You can't die, or run out of time. The challenge to the game is to try and rescue them as fast as possible. I'm not even going to bother to integrate some story-based reason to go faster. Just do it.

The lower your score, the better. The game will store your high score, and display it next to the level as you pick it. You can also pick what song plays at the start of the level.

Your main weapon for the game is a flamethrower with unlimited fuel. You can point it in any four directions. You can use it to destroy enemies or melt ice that is in your way.

That's about as much as I realy need to explain here; the rest is in the game itself as it displays a "how to play" screen on the first run.

I like the style, but the complex levels get frustrating. The physics are a bit annoying too.

Good work though!

pretty cool aesthetic but I didn't like the controls or the fact that it's entirely self motivated without any goals. Also some of the level design is just mean and trial and error

Pretty cool game, I feel it got worn out after a little while though :\ I didn't really feel motivated to beat my times.

Nice though, finish My Distraction
