You are an archaeologist and space adventurer on a quest for alien loot. You discover a planet where there's a series of hidden and well guarded gold idols. If you find them all you can unlock an ancient alien tomb filled with great riches!

The planet is broken into two parts that can be explored separately. What this means is you can try the more challenging half of the game first, or play in any order you want. There are infinite lives and continues. Master your double jump (jetpack) and find weapon powerups. There are 20 levels, plus 1 unlockable final level. There are 10 unique enemies, 7 environmental hazards besides pits, and 2 boss types. There are also 5 powerup items to find.

Every level has an exit door that is unlocked by finding a set amount of gems. Some enemy AI have RNG based patterns so no two playthroughs will be the same, especially in the later levels.

If you're wondering how the gameplay is designed, take the first Mario, add a pinch of Mario 2, a dash of Ghost & Goblins and you will have Xenocave! Imagine your favorite Italian plumber except slap a jetpack on him and give him a laser blaster and pickaxe.
