Run, jump, shoot, fly and explore your way through a massive action-adventure reminiscent of classic 8 and 16-bit games. Cave Story+ features higher resolutions, tons of new art and music, along with content not available in the original version.
I bought and played this on steam. This game is a masterpiece of its genre. The amazing true 8-bit graphics combined with the extremely catchy soundtrack and the side-scrolling fast paced hack n slash gameplay will entertain you throughout the entire game.
This game has a great plot and will entertain you for at least 9 hours per playthrough (and you will need several playthroughs to get every weapon, every ending and every item).
The replay value is really high as you cannot get everything in one playthrough even if you followed a guide. There are three routes to get all of the weapons and multiple endings.
The controls are a bit unresponsive in my opinion, but you will get used to it. You don't have much mid-air control.
The boss fights and the combat system in general is epic, addicting, challenging and fast-paced. I loved every second of this game. Reccomended to anyone who enjoys hack-n-slash action and 8 bit graphics / music.
