Caveman Craig is an award-winning, unique survival-strategy video game in which you manage a tribe of cavemen and protect them from vicious prehistoric predators. In order to do this, there are 3 primary tasks that you need to manage and distribute across your cavemen. The first is HUNTING, where Craig has to chuck rocks at threats and ‘live food’. The second is GATHERING, in which Craig has to gather fruit and carcasses and return it to his cave. Finally, Craig has to PREPARE, which involves converting the food stored in the cave into ’spendable credits’. These credits are used to buy HUNTERS, GATHERERS, and PREPARERS, who Craig must train to do the tasks they’re named after.
Throughout your growth you will face harder threats, such as the Triceratops and Rival Cavemen. However, the Tutorial Guy will also award you with special items to assist you. Items include free cavemen, meteor strikes, pet dinosaurs, and more. Caveman Craig truly isn’t just a walk in Jurassic Park. It’s a dangerous world out there, no matter how primitive it may be.
Jiang is being paid by Master Fu to ferry his animals across the river. If Jiang doesn’t bring them across in the correct order, the animals left behind will attack each other and Jiang will fail. Your task is to figure out the order in which the animals need to be ferried across. For instance, there may be two sheep and one fox on the dock. If you ferry one of the sheep over first, the fox will attack the remaining sheep and Jiang will fail. By ferrying and exchanging animals, you’ll have to figure out the correct sequence to bring all of the animals safely across the river to Master Fu.
Each level is timed and you can replay it if you want to try to beat your best time, or the expert time. The Ferryman also includes a lengthy story mode with 90 increasingly challenging levels to complete. There is even a fully featured puzzle editor which allows you to create your own puzzles and upload them to our server and share with your friends.
