JET KAVE ADVENTURE  £8.70 on Steam

Cavemen, aliens and jetpacks - after a successful launch on the Nintendo Switch, it's time for PC players and Xbox owners to face the prehistoric threat as well!

Jet Kave Adventure from Publisher 7Levels will cost 14.99 EUR or 14.99 USD on PC and next-gen consoles - Xbox X|S and Xbox One, plus Nintendo Switch.  Jet Kave Adventure is a side-scrolling platform action game where the Stone Age and Science-Fiction collide. 

 

Kave is the chief of his tribe – or rather was until he was Banished. Sulking off through the Jungle and Caves he (you) learn how to Run, Jump, Climb etc until one day he discovers something completely alien to him, though he doesn't understand the word or meaning of 'alien'.

On the rocks he finds something that is not wood, nor rock, nor bone. It is shiny and hot under the blazing sun, but it looks like a cave of some sort, definitely worth exploring. After all, is he not the big brave Kave?

 

He doesn't know it yet, but an alien from outer-space has crash landed and is ready to do whatever is necessary to repair his damaged ship, even causing a volcano to erupt so he can get the required hot, molten ore to use.

This alien is grumpy, grizzled and not in any way a very nice guy. Luckily for humanity, Kave has found something that he doesn't understand but by wearing it he can fly - now he is on a level footing (well, level flying) with this adversary.

 

He can bust through walls, move faster than the speed of running, and leap tall buildings in a single bound (okay there aren't any buildings to leap over, but if there was ...)

Find collectibles and upgrade your gear: Return to the time when seashells were the only currency and collect as many of them to enhance your strength.

Collect various achievements: Some of them may seem odd, but they are all fun!

The game includes several 'Boss' fights, excellent puzzles and addictive game play. Each level is just long enough to be fun without overstaying it's amusement factor. There are traders willing to sell useful equipment and items for the monetary system of conch/seashells which you can collect along the way and especially on and around beach areas. Collect them when you see them.

 

Bright and colourful, fast and fun, delightful and dangerous. Crude, not Rude, Naughty, but Nice, this is definitely one of the best side-scrollers for any platform this year. Watch Here

I have never been very good at platform scrolling games but I often found them amusing. It has the possibilities and potential to become a classic as it is but KAVE ADVENTURE should, in my opinion, be expanded to the online platform and produced like Minecraft or Fortnite.
