California Jane is a fun dungeon crawling puzzle adventure that sees you avoiding traps, pitfalls and monsters as you attempt to esacpe from a dungeon with the “Amulet of Everlasting Eternal Immortality”.
In California Jane you take on the role of California Jane, a Indiana Jones-esque treasure hunting archeologist. After years of searching, you’ve finally found the Amulet of Everlasting Eternal Immortality, which bestows the bearer power over time and death – this means that you can’t actually die, but it’s still not going to be easy escaping the dungeon you’re trapped in!
California Jane is a grid based top-down platformer, which sees you making your way through a series of levels containing traps and monsters to dodge. Each level also contains three optional gold coins to collect and you earn a bonus for completing the levels as fast as you can. There are a lot fo different traps to avoid, but the main type are platforms that crumble below you as you walk on them, which means you have to plan your movements as often you’llneed to backtrack to get to the of a level.
It’s a fun game with easily accessible gameplay, charming pixel art animation and some excellent level design that requires you to plan every movement. Just be careful where you tread – Jane may not be able to die, but those traps still look pretty painful!
