Doukutsu Monogatari (Cave Story)
« on: August 06, 2005, 06:37:27 am »
A recent Penny Arcade link reminded me of this indie game gem: Cave Story. If you haven't played it yet, do so. Right away.

It's a platformer adventure, sort of like Metroid/Castlevania. Insanely well done. And very re-playable, with different endings.

Plus the final secret dungeon is a crazy challenge that I still haven't beaten. Some day...

Ah yes, the official site is all in Japanese. If you need a download link, HotU works.

I found this some months ago, simply brilliant and flawless from start to finish!


*SPOILERS*
My best time in the final area is 4:51.4, giving me the Toroko themed main menu. :) She's running and holding the stick she tried to knock you out with near the start of the game. Tip: use the Rocket Launcher and Spur on the last boss, and double Nemesis on the giant crusher block boss.

I found all the secrets and endings except the Nikamaru counter without a guide, that's how intensively I played this game when I got it. It rules. :) I've also beaten it with the Polar Star only, the final boss was pretty extreme.

The final boss is always extreme... But with just the polar star, jeeze...

*spoiler time I suppose*



I still haven't managed to finish the final secret dunegon. I've gotten to the final boss a few times, but he always chews me up. I should probably learn to use the rocket launcher more...

Lysander: you're allowed to ressurect dormant threads, providing you have something to contribute to it [:


Therefore.

This game is still awesome beyond recognition. And as for Hell, as in, the REAL FINAL STAGE of Cave Story, I gathered all my patience for this, died and tried multiple times for 2 straight hours until I finally got to kill Ballos (Final Boss) and finish the game. And I can say that those 2 hours were worth it \o/

My suggestion as one who got to finish the game? USE THE SPUR  :)

You do NOT want to NEVER play Cave Story.

First, download the original program in Japanese (and it's only 1 MB o_O)
Run the Aeon Genesis (AGTP) English Patch on it, and enjoy. :D

And yes, it's more than worth it to translate the game \o/

I'm up to the second meeting with Balrog. He owned me a few times and I gave up. Trying again later :)

This game is fun stuff!

It always was, is, and will be.  :D

Oh, and advice for later in the game; do NOT trade in the Polar Star with anything else until you get back to the hobo you stole it from.

Yeah, my friend Kai told me not to trade it. He screamed at me "DO NOT TRADE. DO NOT TRADE OR ILL KILL YOU"

I'm not there yet, though. I'm up to the third meeting with Bal(f)rog. ;)
