Enhanced with hi-res sprites and a spiffier soundtrack, this indie success story has received the update it deserves.

The biggest addition is to the price tag, but Cave Story itself is still a masterclass in minimalist video game design.

This is not a game you want to have to wait for - it is a must-have for a console that it feels to have been made for. It is, as I say, a masterpiece.

Cave Story+ is a magnificent metroidvania style with emphasis on platforming action and which brings forth fantastic boss fights, a perfectly designed difficulty curve and overall, a charming and engaging adventure that is set to captivate newcomers and veterans alike. Even if Cave Story+ has existed in previous formats before, it is still a very recommended option to everyone.

If you haven't played Cave Story yet, you need to; it's an essential title for any fan of Metroidvania style games. Its wonderful pacing, fantastic controls and charming visuals make it a must-have for fans of the genre, especially those that have yet to play it. If there was the equivalent of a required reading list for games, Cave Story+ would be on it.
