Like fools, we rely on games offered for our favorite platforms that are published in magazines, but lately, they seem to have all become so simple, demanding too little of the player's intelligence and creativity. Now a game has been created that makes us stand up and cry, "Let's do this!!"
This quote is from an article announcing Cosmic Cavern.
Cosmic Cavern was published in the July 1980 issue of I/O Magazine in Japan. As the article illustrates, Space Cavern was extremely addictive because it allowed players to express their imaginations, was densely packed with pure fun, and was highly innovative. It gained incredible popularity and was ported to a wide range of 8-bit computers of that era.
In addition to the original version, this masterpiece compiles two arranged versions that modify frustrating parts of the original with modern gameplay, in addition to enhanced features and two-player co-op. That's three games in one!
Hiroshi "Mr.Dotman" Ono drew graphocs of these games and many more.

This game is fun and crazy addictive to boot! It's a great port, and unlike most pc ports today. There are some difficulties such as its refresh rate and the game speed being tied to your monitor. You can however use third party software to adjust the frame rates but it should be up to the developers to include a fix in the game itself. The game plays like a simple game, it?s hard to appreciate it. It?s not for everyone but the simplicity is part of its charm. Just boot the game up and you can play without hassle. Cosmic Cavern is definitely the definitive cavern experience.
