This is my Cave Story example map. Don't mind this that you can fall from the screen and don't die - it's just a example.

You are aware that you can play the "+" version with the old graphics and sounds/music?

It comes with the "Remastered" (3DS) music, right? I found that to be even better than the original, especially Running Hell.

Yes, but the original version was supposed to have a 4th ending not found in this version.

*minor spoiler*

Supposedly just before Curly first see's you and walks away in the Sand Zone, you could have shot a brick above the starting transporter and got to Curly's room before she saw you and this was the start to the ultimate ending. Instead of fighting Curly, the others would stop her from attacking you. This was supposed to explain why there are those sets of 2 breakable bricks near Curly's room and the set on the right just revealed a gap in the floor for the sake of being a gap, it was really the exit way from the passage starting beside the transporter.

I would love to try the original and see if this was true.

I would like to point out that the fourth ending that was shown in is completely fake. That was simply a modification made by CSTSF member HaydenStudios almost a year ago. Also take note that the video was uploaded on April 1st which, as most people know, is April Fool's Day. Hell, the guy even made a thread stating that this was an April Fool's joke.

Of course the original wouldn't have this special "Fourth Ending" because the original didn't even have that ending!

Good Lord people are gullible...

Never seen that video. I read about it somewhere else. No need to be rude, like I said, I wanted to test it, didn't say if it was true or not.

I LOVE this game. I played it all the way through on my mac years ago, and bought the wii version recently to play it again.

Cave Story has been removed from the system because there are supposedly issues with it being distributed from Pixel. Until this is resolved we won't be able to distribute Cave Story.

All right, but could you, as a Desura official, please talk to the developer to give us keys for when we bought the game during the HiB? So far I feel like they are ignoring us...

This game is nothing short of amazing. It has everything a platformer should have, and then some.

This is one of those games that everyone should play at least once. Truly a masterpiece.
