    If I see anotherkellydown and Noen endorse a game it's instabuy for me. Downloading as I type this. Let's rock! I'll post impressions later today.

    Haha I played the game for ten seconds!

    You know I always hate tilt controls but with the game in portrait I have to say those ten seconds of flying kicked ass. Hahaha

    I can tell already this game is going to be fun!!

    OK - if AKD, Noen AND LordShad0wz are all over a game... I need a Maglor instabuy cat...
    Interested to see what the tilt controls are like. My all time favorite control scheme of this type is BS's Flop Rocket (which I still play, but STILL have only made out once!).
    Everything about this screams quality - looking forward to trying it tonight.

    Was waiting for this. Picked it up and love it. The tilt control is the most precise of any game I have ever played. This is the perfect cave flyer, lunar lander game. Bravo to the Dev. Everyone should pick up this game! at only .99 this game is a steal.

    Yea, I can't recommend this game enough. If your on the fence, just get it. Don't worry about tilt controls, they are perfect. (Once you flip the inverted controls. Lol) Like I've said before, it's just a good old fashioned mobile game. No IAPs, so schenanigans. It's just a perfect pick-up-and-play game with just enough to keep you wanting to try one more run. (Especially after you had a good 5+ minute run!) I don't put my "stamp of approval" on too many games, but this is definitely one I'll vouch for. Lol

    Amen! I feel the exact same way. This game should be an apple editors choice. I left a nice review on the AppStore. Everyone get this game. It's worth way more than what the dev is charging. It's just a great time!

    The best part of the game is the suspense when you are watching that fuel gauge go red and there's the landing pad! Annnnd crash lol

    I just need to add I hate, no, I loathe those damn mining lasers. Hehe

    To the dev, have you worked on other projects? There's no way this is your first game. Really nice job. Thank you! You've made a fan!

    Is it an endless runner or a Metroid-like?

    It's not an endless runner. It has 5 areas. Each area is procedurally generated each time you play. Each area has its own unique items. If you make it through all 5 areas and hit the surface you win. It's a lot easier said than done. I've made it to area 2 so far. Once you crash, get lasered, or run out of fuel you start from the beginning in a new game. It's very challenging but it's not where you would feel like rage quitting. I always have that "one more time" feeling. There are lots of items to find and collect and the currency luminum is usually in tight spots. You need a lot to upgrade the ship. Ship upgrades are persistent.

    I hope this answers your question!

    Bought. Awesome controls, very smooth and precise once you become accustomed to them. I am usually the first to complain about tilt controls but they're done masterfully here. I also like the fact that the game is not endless, I like a game that is difficult enough to take a gazillion tries to the point that it feels endless, but that you eventually beat with enough practice. Also big kudos to Jan for making it a paid app with no IAP, always happy to see that. Pick this one up folks, it's a winner.

    A developer has finally made a great tilt-controlled game! Nice job.

    I love controls, gameplay, challenge, and music. This is a steal at $0.99.

    Alright! Had my eye on this! If MC is happy with the tilt controls, it must be good, 'cause I know how he basically dislikes tilt controls in general! And THEN he says never mind--it's good like that?! What? Do you realize the magnitude of what he said there?! LOL! Downloading it now! :D

    Lunar Mission by jules van herwijnen
    https://appsto.re/sa/tfVZ5.i . Lunar Mission has no IAPs、no ADs and it is free,and is better than this Cavernaut.
