It's dark, you're a glowing blob, and you've got a gun.
Suddenly, you hear a sound off to your right - or maybe it was your left. A rusty iron gate screams in the darkness as it lets... something... draw closer to you.
Steadying your finger on the trigger, you wait. Will it be a friend, or will it be a giant Muppet-looking monster waiting to devour you? Movement flashes, you blink at the worst possible moment, and you make your decision..
In a nutshell, that's the world of Hopeless: The Dark Cave, a disarmingly cute time-waster that's a great addition to the niche genre of 'adorable free-to-play survival horror shooters'.
Easy to pick up and difficult to master, the deceptively twee Hopeless: The Dark Cave is a perfect game for short bursts of entertainment
