If you're only one of those gamers who doesn't expect a ten pound game from a two pound budget release, then Creepy Cave will probably satisfy you. The rest of us, however, have, I think, moved on slightly in our expectations.

This fairly standard platforms game by Rob Dulstone is, to be frank, just that - fairly standard. You have to do a lot of the usual fun things - jump from ledge to ledge, collect keys and objects, memorise the workable routes round screens and so on. All this in pursuit of a rather sweet ghost who's stolen your front door key!

I don't mean to sound too harsh with this game - it's got its own quiet charm and could find some admirers out there. Especially for the money.
