Dark Cavern is a maze-based game for the Atari 2600 where players must navigate through a labyrinth filled with robots, bats, and spiders. The primary objective is to find and pick up a gun that is randomly placed within the maze. This gun provides the player with a limited number of shots to fend off the pursuing enemies.
As the player uses up their ammunition, they must continue exploring the maze to find the gun again, which will have been randomly placed in a different part of the maze. The player must strategically manage their ammunition and avoid getting cornered by enemies while searching for the gun.
Dark Cavern tests the player’s skills in navigation, strategy, and resource management as they try to survive the relentless pursuit of enemies and maintain their ammunition supply within the ever-changing maze.
