Under rating threshold (show) Hi, enchanted cave developer here! I'm working on an Android port for this right now so you have any suggestions of things you want fixed let me know on my kong profile, website or @dustinaux on Twitter! I'm already going to add in-game help tips for first play-throughs, improving magic formulas, adding a non-artifacts sell button, and adding a low-life warning. Am I missing anything important? Thanks for playing! :D

Under rating threshold (show) Will you please please please make a sequel? And maybe have the magic more useful as well? I hope I'm not the only one who noticed that my attack power never was any more/less than about 5 or 10 damage give or take than the strike spells.......

Developer response from DustinAux

Yes! After I finish an Android port of this one with several improvements (like better magic!) I'm planning on launching a kickstarter for a sequel! I'll be updating my progress on my website (dustinauxier.com) so check there for the latest TEC2 news. EDIT 3/20/14 The sequel kickstarter is now live! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/598435976/the-enchanted-cave-2

Under rating threshold (show) Considering this is the developers first attempt at flash gaming I think this had been an outstanding display of how to make a simple yet effective gaming development work. While it's not perfect, you have to support and congratulate him on an outstanding effort and no doubt we will see more fantastic games from this upcoming developer star in the making. 5/5 !

Under rating threshold (show) The inaccessible treasures at every shopkeeper level are taunting me!(some actually have artifacts, like eyes) That said, some levels have monsters that are trapped, either by walls or by treasure chest/bags. Are these on purpose?

Under rating threshold (show) Beat it on my second run into the dungeon somehow. Large health pots were dropping like crazy from level 80+ so that certainly helped. My method was equipping items with as much agility as possible (assassin items, especially those wonderful rings later on) and attack. Just be sure not to sacrifice too much defense for the sake of a couple agility points. Spending mana potions wisely to cast mega heal was a must as well. Killed the "surprise" boss with 5 large health pots and 2 large mana pots to spare! :) Well made flash game by the developer, had a lot of fun!

Under rating threshold (show) Some say using the spells is painful, it is, but I found a way to make it slightly easier. If you want to use a spell on an enemy, stand in the square next to them. Click and drag the spell you want to use over the enemy, step into them, and release the spell. I usually cast immediately after my character attacks, if you cast immediately as you step into them your first attack will be the spell. Hope this helps.

Under rating threshold (show) A short survival guide for those that have problems with the game. #1 Don't fight needless battles. If the monster isn't guarding something you really need, don't bother with it. #2 At each level locate and prioritize your targets. For me it's Escape Wings -> Artefacts -> Gems -> chests with spells (If you have eye of wealth to see those) #3 If it's getting too hard, just Escape Wing from the game and start over. To get more gems and artefacts on the same way. Remember it makes you start from second to last deepest shop you reached. Which always happens to be at X9 level. Don't want to raise the difficulty? Warp at X8

Under rating threshold (show) Minor complaint: Magic is difficult to use in battle. Instead of dragging the spell to your character hotkeys or simply clicking the spell would be much preferred. There are mage items, but I never use them because of this difficulty. Also, thanks for the updates from the beta launch. Brilliant game. 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) Tip 1- At the first lvs, focus on attack. 2- Focus on defend but have attack when you have less than 60% health! 3- Use MP ONLY for healing! (most bttl ends with 1-4 hits so just heal instead of use mp for fighting.) 4- DO NOT ENGAGE battle when you have less than 50 health cause you RISK the chance to start over from SCRATCH! 5- If you have alot of money, Pick route to most chest/bag with the least monster that you have to kill to last longer in the game! 6- Click on the chest/bag of money to see if the item inside really worth going for. Chest show you which kind is inside while bag shows you how much money inside! 7-Have Fun!

Under rating threshold (show) all in all a nice game for the simplicity and time used to create it. did it 3 complete runs (1-100). that said i still have some smaller complaints: 1st: magic is nearly unuseable, esp. battle magic. 2nd mana "regeneration" is too weak for later levels (might be on purpose). 3rd: agility seems to be useless, as u cant beat a golem (6 agi) 3 times (with 75 agi) before he hits u 2nd time. said thing. 4th: damage taken only slightly depends on own armor and resistivity crossing a certain level. HM.

Under rating threshold (show) In order to actually get somewhere in the game, you have to avoid most battles. You don't level up by fighting. It's all about equipment and gems. So fight monsters that are in the way of your path, in the way of chests, and definitely in the way of gems and artifacts. Only go out of the way to kill a monster if you can one-hit kill it (for extra gold). Don't be afraid to use your escape wings!

Under rating threshold (show) @Emperorerror - Although it isn't a perfect system, to use an attacking spell, enter into a battle and drag the spell onto the battle. A little meter will appear under your character, slowly filling with red (It takes slightly longer than a normal attack time to fill up, almost guaranteeing that your enemy will hit you). Once it's fall, there's a kind of a thump noise, and the damage amount will appear in an element specific color. Blue = Water, Red = Fire, Tan = Earth, White = Wind.

Under rating threshold (show) Somedays, it's just time for a dungeon crawl, no muss no fuss, just smash monsters, get treasure. I found this game well executed on almost every front (dragging the magic over enemies was a bit clunky and annoying, but other than that the controls were perfect.), and while it was a bit short for my taste, it was absoulutely enjoyable. 5/5, I hope to see more (Perhaps a sequel with 500+ floors?)

Under rating threshold (show) Selling all the junk is quite a chore. I could do well without the confirmation for selling items. Just drag it on the sell and sold. Or auto-sell all that crap. Regarding that game I am looking for: It was a DOS (maybe Windows?) Freeware game. Nothing fancy from a company. It is not Mystic Towers. ;)

Under rating threshold (show) I've got some very simple tips! 1) Always go for treasure box's, artifacts and regular items. 2) Ignore money bags that are gaurded. We don't want to lose life for 10 coins. 3) Avoid battles unless you're sure you can kill them in one hit. Killing one hit monsters are good for building gold. 4) Stock up on health potions 5) Sell extra artifacts, but never sell artifacts that you only have one of. Say you have a weapon that's stronger than your artifact weapon. If you sell the artifact weapon, you'll start over later with a dagger. :( 6) Feel free to replace artifacts with stronger regular items. Artifacts are really just good starter equipment. 7) ENJOY IT :DD

Under rating threshold (show) 6) As soon as you get one of the healing spell, forget about offensive ones. Use your mana exclusively to get back your health points.7) In the shop, give priority to healing potions because they are rare in the dungeon when there is a high probability that you will get the item that you want from a chest (unless you are at level 99 of course ;)8)Which item is the best to equip? Well, physical resistance is more important than magic defense, and 100 is the max for any elemental defense, so an object which grants a small protection in all categories is better than one that gives a huge amount for a single element. Though, if you enjoy to switch items in between every fight and choose the latter, I won't scold you...9) Now, have fun! :D

Under rating threshold (show) I liked this game a lot, as I love roguelikes. Varied backgrounds, enemies, and gear were excellent, music was good, and the graphics were about as complex as I'd like to see for a game like this. A few comments: Challenge - I didn't die once; only for the first 30 floors or so was it challenging to stay alive, and that was more hoping to find potions than the game being hard. I know luck is a huge aspect of roguelikes, but I think it could be improved. Magic - I didn't use a spell the entire game besides healing. There's no time to do so when I don't think a single battle lasted more than five rounds. Most were over in 3, Elemental defense - why give equipment elem. defense levels higher than 100 if they're just going to be capped? Inventory - selling things was tedious, instant selling via shift-clicking should be allowed. Another alternative would be assigning a junk category that auto-sells. Ending - boss was way too weak, and the game just hangs after killing him? Disappointing.
