(5 star) This is a wonderful reincarnation of a 90's classic.
(5 star) Great re-imaging of a childhood favourite - Lemmings.


LETS GO! ... OH NO! (or.. YIPEE!)

Caveman is a game where the goal is to guide Cavemen to the exit on the level.


Cavemen enter the level through an open hatch and walk aimlessly to their death or around in circles following the path outlined - specific skills can be assigned to Cavemen to create a new path and help guide the others to the designated exit.

The following skill sets are available:

- CLIMBER: scale those walls
- FLOATER: float down to safety
- EXPLODER: pop!
- BLOCKER: block the path
- BUILDER: build a bridge
- BASHER: bash a horizontal path
- MINER: mine a diagonal path
- DIGGER: dig a vertical path

Each level has a set of requirements to complete where a combination of skillsets may need to be used to solve the level - there is more than one solution available; how many cavemen can you save!

With four difficulty levels (easy, medium, obscure, insane) and 120 levels + hidden bonus levels - this game is guaranteed to bring you hours of enjoyment and gaming addiction!


A number of game play options exist to customize the game play to individual preference; assignment of tools can be via clicking on the caveman, clicking on the toolbar or both. The game resumes play on touch by default but this can be disabled under the options screen.


Mobile 1UP has worked very hard to ensure that all levels are solvable; a complete set of solution guides for every level are available on the Mobile 1UP website (high definition video and detailed walk throughts) - of course the challenge is being able to solve them on your own!


A special "unlock feature" has been provided where unlocked levels can be accessed via a special code; in addition to revealing special secrets of the game engine (easter eggs) - a complete list of the relevant unlock codes are available on the Mobile 1UP website. Some codes change on a daily basis - so be sure to visit often to find all the goodies that are available!


Caveman is a game inspired by the classic Lemmings developed by Psygnosis released for Amiga, DOS, et al in 1991. The project started as a port of the game, but due to intellectual property concerns the game was given a new set of graphics, audio and some custom levels to bring the game genre up to the standards expected by gamers in this era. The game was developed by Aaron Ardiri, the graphics provided by Tomas Miller, and the sounds were provided by Michael McGee.

Ratings and Reviews

Excellent alternative to Lemmings

Defiant Ewok

If you are looking for "Lemmings," the early 90s game, this is the next best option. There are lots of levels with varying levels of difficulty; providing many hours of gameplay. Instead of Lemmings you have Cavemen, but other than that it is the same game.

If you are not familiar with Lemmings, give this game a try - it is a great puzzle and strategy game. It works great on my iPhone and iPad - although I would get the HD version for the iPad.

Sloppy multi-platform development makes for a poor iPad experience


This app claims to be universally compatible with the iPhone and iPad. However, the iPad version is simply a zoomed-in version of the iPhone version. It looks fuzzy and text is hard to read.

This developer does offer an iPad version but they require you to buy two separate versions just to support difference resolutions.

Ultimately, that's extremely disappointing.

Its like lemmings. Fun!!!


I love this game, keeps you very entertained. But having trouble with it not saving my place in the game I keep having to start completely over. This would get 5 stars if the developer fixes this.
