Rumors are abound of a diamond hidden beneath the surface. Curious as you are, you've decided to check things out for yourself. Time in the cave appears to function strangely- you can only spend so much time in there before being forced back to the surface. Can you retrieve the diamond before time runs out?

Special thanks to AbyssalMari who did the sprites and music for this game.

wow. great game for just randomly finding it. 10/10, great replayability.

I noticed something, tell me if this is right:

at the end, it gives you a list of stats, total loops, and grade. if you don't pick up some powerups/time orbs, do you get a secret ending or a better grade?

Thank you very much for the kind words!

Regarding your question....

There is no secret ending, but you can get a better grade by collecting every items and beating the game with a small number of loops.

Very nice game with nice polish to it. Love the reference to the metroid game. A great demonstration of what the pico 8 can offer

great game!! the roll-jump combo feels great, and the rest of the physics too. after I beat it I had a good time speedrunning; here's my best time

also, a bug report: I was mashing x/z just before the credits started, and this happened:

Thank you all for the kind words! I'll take a look at that bug report, pancelor.

I finished the game and enjoyed it. The controls felt a bit weird, especially at first. But once I got a hang of it, it was very fun.

I like how you made all the movements very fast. It's a fun game to try to speed run.

Not the best result with only B grade at the end but I'm happy with my result.

Very nice! That last timer was tricky, but I managed to get it eventually. Also, is it just me, or does the first room look a little familiar? ;)
