Cave Story: Another free game review

Special thanks to CAFFEINE KNIGHT for recommending this game to me.

I'll get this clear at the beginning. I won't say anything about the story. I reckon it's better if you find it out for yourself.

With that out the way, it's time to actually talk about the game. Cave Story is a 2D platformer, released in 2004. As everyone who has played a platformer knows, they pretty much need perfect controls. Cave Story certainly delivers, as the shooting, jumping and movement areas are all fluid and feel really good. The gameplay is quite story driven, and requires some, but not too much, problem solving. If you've played Megaman, you'll feel right at home with the gameplay, graphics and sound.

There's not much I like more than a good platformer, and Cave Story is my definition of a good platformer, combining charming graphics, story, and decent music. I hear you can get this game from WiiWare too. You can download this game free from here. It's only 40 megs, so you might as well give it a crack.

This spells the end of my THIRD free game review in a row. If you would like me to review another free came, please leave a comment containing you suggestion(s). Thanks!
