Re: Cave Story

Great game but the 3ds version is a waste. They should have made it a sequel or at least added some more levels.

Re: Cave Story

I own the DSiWare version. It was fun on my XL, but I transferred it to my 3DS and now it cramps up my hands.

Except, unlike with OOT3D, the original wasn't free.

I really liked Cave Story, but I could never beat hell. It was just too hard for me.

Re: Cave Story

I've never actually played Cave Story. I've thought about it, but I dunno.

Re: Cave Story

Some people treat this game as it was the second coming of Jesus, or something stupid like that.

And I totally agree with them.

Cave Story is just awesome.

Besides just starting a file on the Wii version, I've only played the original free version, but I don't think I'd ever need more than that, the game's already pretty ❤❤❤❤ing great and I don't mind playing it again and again and again.

And again.

Re: Cave Story

The Wiiware remake is the best, they improved the graphics without ruining the charm *Cave Story 3D ahem*

Oh yeah, that's something I liked about the little bit I played of the Wii version, it's still under the same style, but it still improves the look of everything.

I'd argue that they ruined the music, but you can change it back, so whatever.

Re: Cave Story

I have Cave Story + on Steam from a past Humble Bundle.

Not really sure what that means in relation to the original free game. Haven't played it yet, either. D:

Re: Cave Story

A great game and 100% free.

I also have Cave Story + which I got in a Humble Indy Bundle. But I don't understand why someone would pay for this game when it can be downloaded for free legally.

Whatever.

Its a must try, you can definitely see the love the creator put in it.

Re: Cave Story

Played the original when the first english translation came out. (Thank you AGTP!) The whole Ballos route is really cool, and I really liked how they fed you the story as you went through. He was a pain to beat too. Very Contra style. It's completely worth it though.
Multiple endings--like, actual multiple endings based on when and how you escaped--was a great touch.

Forget my final time, but it wasn't bad concidering I wasn't aiming for a speed run or anything.

My only gripe with the game is that the weird little green twiddly-thing could have self-activated. Maybe that's been solved in more recent versions, but it never seemed to work right.

Never played any of Pixel's other games though. Anyone here ever take a crack at them?

Cave Story+ has updated graphics and sound. The original music is very chiptune-sounding and the newer version isn't so much. Also a lot of the graphics overhaul makes the game look at lot more like a SNES game than an NES 8-bit game, so it's simply a matter of preference which you choose to play with. There's also a completely extra level in CS+ that isn't in any of the other versions.

You can't really go wrong with either.

Re: Cave Story

That roughly agrees with my perception: A fun game that could've been much better.

Too much dialogue (I usually like dialogue in games, but only if it's largely optional. I don't want to sit through five mandatory minutes of text for every ten minutes of gameplay), waaaaaaaaay too much backtracking, and controls that are just too floaty to fit with the precision shump-ish gameplay.

I certainly don't regret buying Cave Story+, and I still play it every so often, but it's a bit curious the amount of adoration it's gotten.

Re: Cave Story

I dont like that you compared it with Metroid and Super Mario.Just because it is inspired in it doesnt mean it is like it!

Re: Cave Story

It is very similar to both of those games, though. Metroid pioneered the "explore with a gun" genre, and Cave Story takes many cues from it, most of which eric noted.

The only comparison he made to Mario was the control physics, which are very Mario-esque, being floaty with lots of momentum.

I mean, what part of that do you disagree with? Does Cave Story not let you explore? Does it not have multiple weapons? Does it not have extra life containers? Missiles? Floaty controls? What?

Re: Cave Story

Uhm, in my original playthrough I only had to backtrack once, and that was because I managed to completely get turned around in the desert area and found it easier that way. Unless you count backtracking as cutting through one area to reach a place connected to it. Most of the game is a directed course, and it is quite easy to find the NPCs you need to talk to. They're usually in a door or out in the open. The work camp is the only place where you have to hunting for a specific person, and a couple of the workers give you hints about it.

Incidentally, the two big endings are dependant on whether you fall into the hole and get Boomer's jetpack or jump the gap. There's even a line drawn to show where you should jump from. It was noted in the original readme for the game, but that probably didn't come with any of the rereleases.

Re: Cave Story

There's plenty of back-tracking. The whole jellyfish-juice to get past fires, dog hunting, egg corridor...There's no area in the game that you don't have to cross, turn around, cross, turn around, cross again at least once.

Re: Cave Story

I just downloaded the Cave Story plus version from Steam. I will be playing it for the sake of the rewritten dialog and the included Curly Story and Boss Rush modes. If I like this Version I might get it on my 3DS.
