Cave Story+ (Nintendo Switch) Review | 8-Bit Eric

This is a review of Cave Story+ for the Nintendo Switch by 8-BIt Eric. The Switch is quickly becoming the platform for quality indie releases, and Cave Story+ is the newest addition to the must-own indie roster of Switch software. Cave Story is one of the most popular indie titles of all time Originally released in 2004 on PC, Cave Story+ on the Switch features a few new additions: remixes on its classic look, the graphic style is from the Wii ware version.

In Cave Story+ you take on the role of Quote, an amnesiac robot who awakens on a floating island and must stop the evil doctor from wiping out this cute bunny like race called the mimigas. You run, jump and shoot your way through this Metroidvania style game. 

The controls are your standard retro platforming type of control and are very solid. The A button controls Quote’s jumps, while the B button handles firing whichever gun you have equipped. The X button will bring up an equipment screen that allows you to change weapons or to check your map. The L and R buttons will also allow you to switch between your weapons,

Awesome 2D action and platforming with a variety of satisfying weaponry.nAs you defeat enemies, you'll gain experience triangles that are used to make your currently equipped weapon more powerful. However, if you take damage then it may level down.

There are several endings, the game encourages the player to return and replay the adventure. The game controls beautifully with the analog stick and the d-pad. If you prefer to game with the Switch Pro Controller, that option is available to you. Cave Story+gives you four different variations of this incredible soundtrack to choose from.

You can unlock a new game mode – Curly Story. This mode lets you play through the game as the Curly. Furthermore, there are challenges to unlock and a Boss Attack mode. These two modes have online leaderboards. The switch version is a bit pricy, compared to how much you can get it on other platforms, however, the actual physical version of this game comes with a lot of stuff.

Not to mention there will be incoming free content updates.  Eventually this summer, local multiplayer will even be patched into the game, allowing a second player to take on the role of Curly. if you've never played Cave Story before, the Switch version may be your best bet for experiencing it. It's portable,

Top 10 Cave Story Songs

Please leave a like and subscribe, a single click that I appreciate a lot :3

Sorry this took so long to make! I got....distracted by various things =3= Anyway, here it is finally.
Cave Story is a game that is valued by many to be a master piece among the gaming community. It is quite possible one of the best indie games that exists to this day, and in some eyes even tops some more vaguely recent modern games *cough cough* Call of Duty *Cough*

With its mysterious graphics, compelling story, fun game play and featured multiple endings, this game is absolutely fantastic with a superb replay value. The music is second to none, and I list my absolute favourite Cave Story Songs.

Disclaimer: I do not own Cave Story, nor Pixel Studios, all the rights go to its creator Daisuke Amaya, AKA Pixel.

This is NOT the definite best cave story songs list. This is my opinion and my opinion only. You can agree to it or not, it's cool. This also contains spoilers when the list starts, but I explain all these disclaimers in the video prior my top ten list anyway so you shouldn't complain. Unless if you have the sound off, in which case I'm not sure why you're viewing this video in the first place.

Cave Story [Part 13] Ma Pignon and Curly's Memories (3 HP/Minimal Weapons/NO DAMAGE)

► Playlist with playthrough:

Boss: Ma Pignon - 01:53

In order to help Curly retrieve her memories we must find a way to cure her amnesia, to do so we must travel way back to the Mimiga Village and find the Ma Pignon. You can also have your Polar Star reforged and modified in the very same place you started your journey into the most powerful weapon of the game: Spur. I still like the Machine Gun better, though.

Anyway don't forget to answer the pricky Ma Pingon questions properly and check the Mushroom Badge so you can trigger the fight against him. After defeating him and making back to Curly you'll learn your own name: Quote.

DO NOT FORGET to talk to Curly twice so she can give you the Iron Bond which unlocks the real final level of Cave Story: The Sacred Grounds, or Hell as the own game label it (and for a damn good reason).

Let's Play - Cave Story - [18] Plantation

This is the second worst thing I've been thrown in jail for.

Cave Story+ - All Bosses [Hard*, No Damage]

Cave Story + on Steam:

Difficulty: Hard (3/3) and Original (2/3)
*There is 2 bosses (Sisters and G-Clone) which you can't fight on hard difficulty.

Bosses in video:

[00:00] 1. Balrog (Round 1)
[02:22] 2. Igor
[03:42] 3. Balrog (Round 2)
[05:24] 4. Balfrog (Round 3)
[07:44] 5. Curly Brace
[09:34] 6. Omega
[10:53] 7. Rabid Toroko
[14:44] 8. Monster X
[16:37] 9. Balrog (Round 4)
[19:18] 10. The Core
[24:37] 11. Ironhead
[25:52] 12. Sisters
[27:32] 13. Ma Pignon
[29:04] 14. Red Ogre
[29:42] 15. Misery
[32:02] 16. The Doctor
[34:31] 17. Final Boss: Undead Core
[38:25] 18. G-CLONE
[40:11] 19. Heavy Press
[41:19] 20. True Final Boss: Ballos

This is one of the games which was requested quite frequently. I wanted to do it too, but I was concerned about some of the bosses. As much as I like this game, there is some parts, there the game can be REALLY frustrating, especially if you play on hard.

Like i mentioned before, you can't fight Sisters and G-CLONE on hard. That doesn't really matter, as the only difference between hard and normal, is that on hard there is no health containers and you can't increase your health (there is only one exception) and you can't obtain missile launcher and it's upgrades.

Original Difficulty

Cave Story (洞窟物語 Dōkutsu Monogatari?) is a freeware platform-adventure video game released in 2004 for the PC. It was developed, designed, and programmed over five years entirely by Daisuke Amaya, art-name Pixel, in his free time. The game features classic 2D platform mechanics and is intended as an homage to the classic games that Pixel played in his youth, such as Metroid and Castlevania.

The game focuses on an amnesiac silent protagonist who awakens in a cave. Through his explorations, he discovers a plot by the Doctor, a megalomaniac who intends to force the inhabitants of the cave to fight for him in his bid to conquer the world. The protagonist is thrust into the position of savior as he endeavours to defeat the Doctor.

After its initial release on the Internet, Cave Story slowly gained popularity as an indie game. It received near universal acclaim for its compelling story and gameplay. As a result, Nicalis, an independent video game company, worked with Pixel to bring the game to Nintendo's WiiWare service in 2010. The WiiWare version features more detailed artwork and additional gameplay modes, and was nominated for 2010 Nintendo Power Awards WiiWare Game of the Year.

Game publisher Nippon Ichi Software released a picture of a Prinny wearing the same signature hat, scarf, and polar star of Cave Story's protagonist to promote their Nintendo 3DS remake of the game.

Let's Play - Cave Story - [20] Gotcha!

Man, I really had you going there!

Maybe in my next video I'll shock you again and get those other life capsules and the nemesis*
