Echo: Secret of the Lost Cavern is a challenging adventure with unique subject matter. The prehistoric theme constantly challenges players to think outside the box: When Arok gets hungry, for example, he has to catch his lunch himself by spearing a fish in the river. When he wants to paint, he can't just go to the arts supply store –- he has to fashion a brush out of horsehair and other materials, and collect different colors of "paint" by finding naturally occurring pigments. Puzzles are challenging and cannot be skipped or even reset, but players who persevere through the challenge will enjoy the unique setting and breathtaking 365-degree views of the Lascaux Caves. With the real-life Lascaux Caves now closed to the public, Secret of the Lost Cavern is a great way for kids to be inspired by some small part of the cave's magic.
