Summary: This is basically a remake of the original Cave Story, which was a freeware download created in 2004. The game shares much in common with classic side scrolling action adventure titles. The most notable comparison is to Metroid, but there are other similarities to more obscure games (mostly NES titles) such as Zexyz and even Bionic Commando and Kid Icarus (the punishing difficulty of course).
most definitly a frustrating version of cave story

Summary: This is very good game but i cant give it five stars because this version is more challenging and frustrating than the other versions the main issue with the game is that the controls are not always responcive. Also trying to cross over a pit/abyss shouldn't be so difficult you keep dying over and over trying to jump across a pit.
Summary: I won't add much that hasn't been said in other reviews, as Cave Story is a great game. The main issue I have with this 3DS version is the controls. Yes, CS was already a slippery, floaty platformer, but it has become entirely frustrating in this version. I think this is in part due to the new 3D environments and the dubious edges, as things slightly turn while you walk, and everything generally is much darker and more muddled than in the old 2D game.
