Demon’s Cave Review

Wohoo! Demon’s Cave mini-game has been reviewed at App Games

Demon’s Cave is a free little game which requires you to fly through a cave and avoid all the enemies that come your way. The entire experience is very simple and that’s what you should get in the case of a casual game!

What I like the most in the case of this game is the fact that it does deliver some very interesting controls and that’s what really pushes the experience forward as you go along. The game is filled with many enemies and that’s why you need to use all your wits and power in order to eliminate them.
