Retro side scrolling platform shooter that tells a story in a cave with some added plus things. Cavestory+ is a pretty good name as it turns out.
Initially a freeware "Metroidvania"-style 2D platformer game created entirely by Daisuke Amaya for the PC, Cave Story follows the tale of a silent amnesiac in a long-winding cavern filled with monsters (including the friendly rabbit-like Mimigas). It received numerous enhanced ports by Nicalis for computers and Nintendo consoles.
In this, the last proper cast of the year before the GOTY event kicks off we totally forget to wish you a happy festive season or some equivalent. So enjoy your time off work and enjoy it even more when you listen to this, The SaladCast.
Rob catches up with L.A. Noire and the overlooked Timeshift, Dan glides around Arkham City and Zac tries to put off a few more Skyrim rants to talk Indie and Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand.
So happy fun times! Zac says "Eff 'em" BTW. Cheery.
