Double Fine Productions, the company founded by video game designer Tim Schafer, has launched The Cave for iOS devices, a mobile-optimized version of its popular puzzle adventure game that was released for the Mac and gaming consoles in January.

The game sees players assembling a team of adventurers to solve various puzzles across a number of different worlds. Each character has unique abilities and special talents along with separate storylines that make for multiple outcomes. The game also includes touch-optimized controls that allow users to flick and swipe to solve puzzles, as well as switch between characters in real time.

Assemble a team of unlikely adventurers – each with their own unique personalities and stories– and descend into the heart of a sprawling, sentient cave in order to find that which is most important to each of them. The Cave has had millennia to spruce up the place so prepare to dive deep and solve the puzzles hidden within exotic locations including a subterranean amusement park, medieval castle, and fully armed nuclear research facility. The Cave is waiting.

Our sister site TouchArcade released a first look video of the game yesterday along with additional details about the game’s beginning levels and gestures. The Cave is a $4.99 download for the iPhone and iPad and is available through the App Store. [Direct Link]

Played on my mac. Loved it. Be sure to play it 3 times so that you try all the characters. Each character has separate puzzles.

I have this on my PS3. I'm only about 2-3 hours in but it is great so far. Very pretty, fun, charming, and challenging puzzles. I didn't know much about it but I was pleasantly surprised.

I was wondering if they'd release this on iOS. I saw it on the Mac App Store and it looked really cool but I never game on my Mac so I didn't buy it. Might give it a whirl!

I played it on my PS3 and really enjoyed it, one of the best I've played in the past year.
