Arguably the most well-known indie game of all time, Cave Story features a completely original storyline wrapped with personality, mystery and hours of fast-paced fun. Cave Story is an action-adventure game from the critically acclaimed independent designer, Daisuke Amaya-or Pixel to his fans. Overflowing with unmatched charm and character, Cave Story takes you into a rare world where a curious race of innocent rabbit-like creatures, called Mimigas, run free. You wake up in a dark cave with no memory of who you are, where you came from or why youre in such a place. Uncovering Mimiga Village you discover that the once-carefree Mimigas are in danger at the hands of a maniacal scientist. The Mimigas’ only hope rest squarely on the shoulders of a quiet, amnesiac boy who cant remember his own name. Run, jump, shoot, fly and explore your way through a massive action-adventure reminiscent of classic 8- and 16-bit games. Take control and learn the origins of this world’s power, stop the delusional villain and save the Mimiga!
I liked Cave Story back then and the remastered version here, has improved graphics, reworked music (although I prefer the original melodies) and if you want the old version, you can choose it in the options.
The level of difficulty is appropriate,... playing time 3 - 4h for the first time. But let me say that the team responsible for this remastered version is acting kind of sloppy. So the game crashes when you want to access's ranking in challenge mode or complete a challenge. Furthermore, unlocking the successes buggy, you should play with the Japanese language and a success can not be unlocked at all. These are all small bugs that could be fixed quickly, but for years this has been ignored and therefore no longer fixed. The original game is free and for that version there are patches to play the game in any language.
