"There's a lot to be said for the humble 2D platform puzzler.
When in the right hands, they tend to be an enjoyable fare as fans of titles such as Blizzard's The Lost Vikings, Abe's Odyssey and Trine will surely attest.
Thankfully, The Cave from Double Fine and the ever-fertile imagination of one Ron Gilbert, joins and potentially surpasses these formidable luminaries of the genre.
Hugely engaging, overflowing with trademark Gilbert wit and humour and bursting with charm, its a game that really stood out as something quite special in a landscape dominated by sequels, shootery-things and sequel shootery-things."
