The Cave was created at Double Fine Productions by Ron Gilbert – creator of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion – and was released in January of this year.  It was a great throwback to the adventure games of yore and filled with wit – and now mobile gamers can get in on the action.

Announced today, Sega and Double Fine are bringing the spelunking adventure to iPhone and iPad.  Available on the App Store for $4.99, DoubleFine has worked hard to ensure that The Cave for iOS isn’t just a quick cash in; It’s the the real deal.  “We always planned to release The Cave on touch screen devices, and we worked hard to ensure the game controls felt responsive and intuitive,” said Ron Gilbert. “We were also able to retain the graphical fidelity of the console version so players can now get the full subterranean adventure experience in a portable format.”

The Cave is an original experience that brings something fresh and quirky to the world of iOS gaming,” said Chris Olson, Vice President of Digital at SEGA. “Ron and the Double Fine team dug deep to create a mobile adventure that delivers everything players love about the game.”
