1''The Enchanted Cave'' is a 2010 DungeonCrawling WebGame created by Dustin Auxier and available on Website/{{Kongregate}}, UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} and mobile.께A crowdfunded sequel, titled ''The Enchanted Cave 2'', was released in 2015.께Both games follow a simple premise: there is a cave and you explore it, killing monsters and collecting items along the way. The cave of the title has 100 floors in the first game, and 80 in the second (100 in the Steam or mobile versions). You can go down, but never up. You can, however, exit the dungeon by using wings that are found in a random chest. Escaping will keep your gold and stat boosts (your level and skill point distribution are also kept in the second game), but none of the items you found, except for artifacts, which are marked by a different background color.께After exiting the dungeon, you then start again. In the first game, you go on the second lowest shop you have reached. There are shops on floors 9, 19, 29, etc. so, for example, if you have reached a floor between 29 and 38 inclusively, you will return to floor 19. In the second game, you can choose which floor to start at, but you can only start on a floor with a shop you have visited. There are shops every 10 floors.께----께!! ''The Enchanted Cave'' contains examples of:께* AllSwordsAreTheSame: Your attack animation is always the same regardless of your weapon.* CerebusSyndrome: ''2'' starts out as a whimsical, fantastical adventure, but as you trek further and further into the cave, more and more people from the town go missing (heavily implying that they've met their end in the Cave), the discarded journals you find throughout the Cave become increasingly deranged and nightmarish, and by the final few floors, the town is all but abandoned as almost everyone has either died or abandoned the town due to how dangerous the Cave has become.* DungeonBasedEconomy: The first game doesn't tell us much about the world outside the dungeon, but the second game has an inn and museum that attract visitors.* {{Greed}}: [[InvokedTrope invoked]] by the second game's villain.* HyperspaceArsenal: While you exit the dungeon with only your artifacts, while ''inside'' you can carry dozens of swords and armor, potions, etc.* InexplicableTreasureChests: [[AvertedTrope Averted]], as the chests were put there by the BigBad to lure adventurers.* MegaDungeon: The entire game is set within one.* {{RPG}}: The first game has HP, MP, Attack, Defense, Magic and Agility, as well as offensive and defensive stats related to the ElementalPowers. You can increase your stats by collecting crystals.** The second game adds leveling up.* TechTree: In the second game. There are three sections: alchemist (get more drops, boost potion efficiency), mage (increase MP and magic power while learning new spells) and fighter (increase attack, defense, critical hit rate, and XP gain).* TraumaInn: In the second game, there is an inn at the entrance of the dungeon. You start every session by getting out of it, but are never shown having to ask for a room.
