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 that is critically acclaimed indie game. 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. 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 only played this once, on a desktop PC I rarely use anymore, but one of these days I ought to play it again. Cave Story is a masterpiece. Its characters leave as much of an impression on you as the cast of a Pixar film, its atmosphere of wonder and mystery approximates that of the first two seasons of "Lost," and its art design looks like an old-school Nintendo game taken over by Studio Ghibli. The weapons are tons of fun to use, the music will get stuck in your head (I mean that in the best possible way) and the action can get overwhelmingly hectic, but that makes it all the more exhilarating once you actually do make it to the next save point alive. I would talk about how good the story is too, but half the fun is figuring it out on your own. Play it.
Highest Rated (4 agree) 10/10
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.
