The music in this game is awesome.
 
Also anyone using firefox 3.6, make sure to add giantbomb to your whitelist for ad block.  The new video player didn;t work for me until i did that.

Yeah this isn't working for me either... but the dumb DS commercial worked fine. Same browser: Firefox on Mac OSX 10.6.
 
(And yes, adblock is disabled for Giantbomb, as it always has been.)

Thank you! I've been trying to figure out what was wrong.

Isn't this game free on PC?

Posted by Plasma

Looks exactly like the free PC version... which if you didn't know, is the best free game ever made, seriously, its really good.

@Milkman: Yeah but this looks a little better graphically. Not much though.

God I love that song so much. Still waiting for someone to spit some rhyme over them fat beats.

The original is a great game, and it's free too.

I think I saw the words Level Down.  That's a strike right off the bat.
 
Maybe it's not as bad as it sounds, but FFXI has really soured me to the idea.

Dude this new video player sucks ass. Half the time it won't play and it can't remember my settings like the old one, so I have to keep switching back to HIGH. 
 
Bad move GB. Bad move.

ERROR: Cannot Get Hype, Cave Story Hype buffer already full since 2008.

Wooooooo!
Posted by JackSukeru

I played a little of the original but eventually my sucky laptop couldn't handle it and the game's fps took a nose dive as the game slowed down to a crawl. 
 
Got a better laptop now, so maybe I'll get this for Wii, wait wat?

@Bloviator: You don't gain or lose character levels. You pick up gem things to power up your weapons, and getting hit by enemies drains the power-up.

@Milkman: 
Shhh, Pixel deserves every cent he can get from this game.

If you want to know how Cave Story plays, download the pc or mac version, and play it for a bit. It is obviously inferior to this wiiware version, but you can still get an idea of what's up. It's also freeware, for your information. 

Posted by Curval

Cave Story is just a fantastic game.  If Pixel is making money off this verison he deserves it.  There is also a WiiWare version of LaMulana coming out in the future but it has a graphical update.

Posted by Landon

Posted by lightsoda

Posted by squidracerX

Posted by Urmean

Maybe this time, I'll actually get through Hell!

I need to play this game again.  I haven't played it for a few years.  Cave Story is one of my inspirations for my own game.

Posted by Jackal888

This is a great platformer. This needs to come to the PSP  via PSN. I know there is a PSP homebrew version.

I know of no rhymes, but I've heard some awesome remixes.  Like this one

Or instead of a remix, how about using Japanese McDonalds commercials to recreate the theme?

Can't wait for this! Sooon! 
My crappy netbook has serious issues when it get's busy so i'll be glad to pay for a stable version. 
Like the graphics too! 
The Spelunky XBLA game looks kinda crappy this still looks great!

Posted by KaosAngel
