Spelunker and Co.

OK guys. We all know about "Emerald Mines" and "Skulldiggery", and dozens of others in the same genre, commercial and PD.
I would like to know, does anyone else here like cutesy cave exploring type games? Here, I took a screenie of "Spelunker" on the NES. Love these types of games. How about you vote?

This is a great Amiga cave exploration game: Cavitas. It's not really cute, but you fly around caverns, illuminating the walls with your light, shooting enemies and collecting keys.

I don't think that anyone else has played it - nobody wants to WHDLoad it and no working ADF exists.

I remember playing Spelunker on my C64. was it ever released on the Amiga? There was also a freeware PC game called spelunker in which you moved around in the EOB view style and had to conserve batteries and ropes.

LOL

I used to play Spelunker on MSX, which has a much better version than the C64 one (As usual )

The arcade version and its sequel were very cool, by the way.

I never played Rodland too much. Loved Parasol stars and Rainbow islands though.

The people who voted yes: did you vote on my geekness or your love of cave type games?

Hmm I didn't notice the poll. But I voted yes because I like the cave type games. If the screenshot of Benefactor hadn't been of world 1 I probably wouldn't even have downloaded it.
