Cave Story+





Cave Story+ 


There are some days I groan about having to play certain video games. That is exactly how I felt when I started to play the indie Cave Story+ on the Nintendo Switch. I knew this game would most likely look like a 16-bit video game. Yes it does look like a 16-bit video game. I knew the music would most likely be indie as well. Again, yes it is. Thankfully the music does grow on the player.

Cave Story+ has a storyline that actually interested me and grew on me as well. The game play in Cave Story+ started bad and got a bit better once we acquired the gun. Then we can shoot things that hurt us. Expect to find life capsules so your character can take more hits. The best way to start playing Cave Story+ is on the easiest of three difficulty settings. You can always make this indie game harder if you want to.

I tip my hat to Nicalis for getting a physical copy of Cave Story+ made. This is definitely something more indie developers and publishers need to do. I would not have played Cave Story+ if there was not a physical copy made. The characters in Cave Story+ are strange in an Alice in Wonderland kind of way. Cave Story+ is not very good at giving the player directions though. You are expected to figure it out. I got stuck multiple times.

Cave Story+ is a charming game that has some difficulty to it. There is some violence and bad language as well. The bad language should have been left out. I understand the original Metroid style of violence in Cave Story+. Parts of Cave Story+ can be frustrating to get through. If you think defensively first then you should be okay in Cave Story+. Remember avoid attacks more than making attacks.

I hope Cave Story+ is improved in the graphical department. That is one of the biggest issues with Cave Story+ in my opinion. The strange story drew me in, and had me wanting to understand what was going on. I enjoyed my time with Cave Story+ on the Nintendo Switch. The copy FFG purchased came with an instruction manual and a small music CD which is pretty cool.
