The next in Upopa Games's Hopeless series is a full-fledged sequel that involves shooting monsters down to escape a cave.
No surprises that it's called Hopeless 2: Cave Escape, then.
Rather than standing on the spot, shooting monsters as they come in from the sides, the blobs in Cave Escape are riding a runaway mine cart.
It's a small addition but it gives the game the dynamism of a rollercoaster. Levels feel less predictable and the added pace gives the game series a renewed energy.
It certain seems to have done the trick as Cave Escape has proven quite popular in the week it has been out.
