Caveboy Escape (Free)

What’s it about? In Caveboy Escape, players have to guide the titular Caveboy through various puzzling levels, in which the key is to find the correct path across colored stones to the exit as quickly as possible.

What’s cool? Getting to the ends of various levels is the key to Caveboy Escape, and you’re scored in each one on how fast you’re able to do so. To reach the end of the level, you just have to draw the path for Caveboy to follow to reach it. The catch is, the path is made up of different kinds of stones aligned in a grid, and Caveboy can’t traverse them unless he covers three in a row of any given type. That means you’ll need to draw meandering paths as you go three squares over gray blocks to three more gold ones, then three slate ones, to the exit, for example. Finding the right path quickly is the key to success – sometimes it’s simple, sometimes complex, and paths get tougher to figure out as time goes on. Caveboy Escape also includes an unlockable Survival mode that challenges you to see how far you can get.
