About The Game

Cavelon is a horizontally-scrolling maze game. You the heroic knight must reach the top floor of Castle Cavelon, rescue a fair maiden and do battle with the Black Wizzard! Armed with bow and arrow and a magic sword, you must avoid or kill the castle security guards while collecting the 8 pieces of the exit door that are scattered around the corridors, in order to proceed to the next floor.

Tips And Tricks

If you find yourself in a tight spot, use the magic sword to make the guards disappear for a short while. If you have less than three uses left, a new magic sword will randomly appear in the maze for you to pick up.

The Guards can shoot each other! Use this to your advantage.
