Cave Story is the critically acclaimed opus by indie game developer Pixel, originally created as a tribute to games like Metroid and Castlevania. Cave Story is a 2D platformer in the "metroidvania" tradition, with a classic, world-saving hero and an emphasis on exploration and discovery.
Cave Story+ takes the addictive classic 2D gameplay formula and brings it up to speed with all-new audio-visuals and 10 highly potent and destructive weapons, each with three levels of power!
Along with the higher-definition graphics and music, Cave Story+ includes five new and fresh play modes. New players are welcomed to try Easy Mode while Cave Story veterans can tackle Hard Mode — if they can handle it. Players can also challenge every boss in Boss Rush Mode or try their skill at Sanctuary Time Attack and play story mode as the lovable Curly!
