Description

Ugo and Dawson are two cavemen friends who live their lives hunting dinosaurs. Dawson thinks that life could be more than that; Ugo agrees, since he thinks life is also about eating dinosaurs! They're always together, until a husband-hunter woman shows up and turns their lives upside down...

CaveDays is a 2D platform game with a touch of humor. The player controls Ugo and Dawson throughout the 30 stages of the game, set in four different scenarios: mountain, forest, rolling hills and underground. The level structure is branched, and at each stage, the characters have to gather gems to unlock the next stage or stages. To gather such gems, they complete a series of objectives, which may involve tasks like hunting dinosaurs, collecting fruits, racing against NPCs, painting rocks, lifting rocks to find creatures, etc.

Besides jumping and attacking with their clubs, Ugo and Dawson have also a backpack, used to keep items, such as beaten dinosaurs. They can get, carry and throw objects such as beaten dinosaurs and stones.

There are plenty of objects with which the player can interact, such as carnivorous plants (which will function as cannons and will spit the cavemen), rock switches (which activate devices and move objects), vines, etc.
