Callys Cave 2 – A Strong Sequel for a good platformer – Review

I’d hate to pass judgement so quickly on this cute little platformer, but Cally and her parents should really consider moving! A cave system linking your backyard so some evil doctor’s lair doesn’t seem to me like the best place to raise a kid.

But enough about my strong beliefs in propice environment for a peaceful familiar life and unto the meat and potatoes of this review!

I’m not good with platformers. I’ve yet to master a strong eye-hand coordination to make me decent at playing them. But even with my own physical limitations, I was able to enjoy this game and admit that it’s a good candidate to the genre.

The virtual controls were well responsive, which is the number one thing you want in a scenario where your parents where kidnapped, once again, by the evil Dr. Hebert. And luckily for Cally, she will get access to a wide array of weapons of all genre to accomplish her task.

The dying is still the most frustrating part of the game. And I died often, often from my own clumsiness I must admit, but also because it’s so easy to be defeated by an enemy: a single contact and POOF, you’re dead. No fancy deathscene, not heartbreaking struggle at the doorstep of death, just a big creepy GAME OVER SCREEN with Dr. Hebert looking at us in all his evil glory.

I’m not familiar with the prequel so it’s difficult for me to compare, but I understood that the leveling up, RPG-like system of this one is a new feature of the franchise.

For a free game, if you are into platformers, you’d be completely out of your mind not giving Cally’s Caves 2 a try! There is a single in-app purchase of $0,99 that claims the remove the few ads from the game and also give you a slight advantage in your further adventures.
