Caves&Creatures is a retro-style roguelike action RPG by Relaxy. Super retro graphics combines with nice slick movement, for a comfortable nostalgia kick. Wander through the caves, helped by the very clear little minimap, killing things and picking up the bits of loot that endlessly appear. A lot of them seem to be eggs, which act as healing potions.

The game has over 100 different items, and more than 60 creatures in the caves, some of which don't appear to be hostile. Namely a host of cats, and some knights, that also kill the monsters. Monsters continually respawn but not too punishingly, at least in early levels. You can also enhance your equipment at statues, identify items, and remove curses.
