Review Cave Story
Do you like platform games, and are you looking for a completely free entertainment proposal without too demanding requirements for your computer? Cave Story then becomes one of the titles you should take into account. Since the visual similarity is remarkable, we are talking about an entertainment offer for those who still miss when they had fun with their Super Nintendo.
Cave Story is a platform game oriented to computers with the Windows operating system, in which we will have to put ourselves in the shoes of a girl named Quote, which, however, is not just any girl because part of her is a robot. As we advance through the game, we must eliminate the enormous dangers that appear, showing off our skills.
How it works
Like any good platform game, in Cave Story, we will find difficulties related to puzzles that we will have to know how to solve, as well as movements that have more to do with imagination. And then, of course, you can't miss the enemies themselves, those who will try to destroy us. However, you should know that you will also find other friendly characters who want to help you.
The graphics in Cave Story are inevitably reminiscent of Super Nintendo. The truth is that from the first approach to this game, it's possible to notice how pixel art is present, taking us back to the kind of fun we had two or three decades ago. Indeed, this is not a title we can recommend to those who are used to the graphic definition of the last-generation consoles because it is far from it.
Then, the action takes place in Mimigas, a kind of village under the ground, where the main enemy is a doctor with his allies, who intend to destroy everything in their path. We are strangers to the place, newcomers, and we will have to learn to move there and avoid this catastrophe that looms over its inhabitants.
In any case, the plot of Cave Story is well achieved, as it manages to trap us at all times not only because of the diversity of difficulties that we will find along the way but also because of the interaction with the other characters, especially those who want to give us advice or help us, is frequent. If we add that we have almost total freedom to move around in this world, it is clear that the fun hardly ends.
As for the game mechanics, we can say that it is closely related to its graphics, considering that we have at hand the classic actions of this type of delivery, such as jumping or shooting, but not much more. The truth is that we have enough, at least to start with that. Of course, you will also have to pay attention to the recommendations of the other characters.
But probably the best thing about Cave Story is that according to the decisions we make as we discard dangers, we will have access to up to three completely different endings between them. This means that if we go back to the beginning of the adventure, selecting some other opportunities different from the previous ones, we will also have a varied outcome of the story. This is essential to take the game seriously.
We have to add a little more regarding Cave Story's graphics, considering that we have already advanced that is characterized mainly by the use of pixelated images, very much in the style of the Super Nintendo. However, and at least from our side, this is far from being a criticism, taking into account that it is clear what is the goal of the developers and the type of audience they have targeted.
Among the many features we liked about Cave Story, we have to talk first of all about how long the gameplay is while still being entertaining, something quite usual in these cases. At the same time, we found the graphics and menu design to be very well done. And, of course, a special mention for the total translation into other languages will help you enjoy it even more.
Although in our experience of use, we have not found significant flaws in Cave Story, we can not fail to point out that many users or players who have reached the final instances of the game argue that in the decisive levels, the difficulty level is too high, complicating our life more than necessary.
Cave Story is a platform game like no other, thanks to which you can have a lot of fun solving all the difficulties that appear in your character's path to decide your fate between three different types of endings. If you've been looking for an adventure that fulfills you from every point of view for a long time, look no further; here it is.
