Arguably the most well-known indie game of all time, Cave Story+ features a completely original storyline wrapped with personality, mystery, and hours of fast-paced fun. Cave Story+ is an action-adventure game from the critically acclaimed independent designer, Daisuke Amaya--or Pixel to his fans. Overflowing with unmatched charm and character, Cave Story+ takes you into a rare world where a curious race of innocent rabbit-like creatures, called Mimigas, run free. Run, jump, shoot, fly, and explore your way through a massive action-adventure reminiscent of classic 8- and 16-bit games. Take control and learn the origins of this world's power, stop the delusional villain and save the Mimiga!

Now that I've played through on the Switch, I think this version is the definitive version. It's the best portable version and the best big screen version too. The slight graphic update modernizes it while still keeping a completely retro feel. The controls are perfect with a pro controller. I'm really happy with it and the port is perfect in my mind. I've had no bugs or issues.
If you're new to Cave Story, this is the best straightforward platform game of the 2000's. There are some other great platform games, but they keep adding gimmicks like time warping or stupid stuff. This is just awesome platforming and shooting. There There's some exploring and lots of hidden items to find and there's even stuff to do to get better endings. Rather than having tutorials, the game does an awesome job of letting you figure out what to do while giving you enough clues to figure it out. Some call it metroidvania, but I think I'd rather call it an adventure platformer. The controls are spot on. Jumping is floaty, but it actually gives you more control even when jumping. You can beat it in a few 7 to 10 hours, so it's not too long. Unless you follow a faq, you won't get the best ending your first time through. But I would suggest playing one time through for fun, and then perhaps use a faq for your second time through.
If you've played Cave Story before, it's the same game. It's got all the same gameplay and secrets just with sharper 720p graphics. There are some lighting effects, but most of the time they're so subtle that some people won't even notice them. The water physics and distortions are cool. The see through text boxes are a nice touch. The darker backgrounds make it more playable on the small screen when the switch is in portable mode. I like the new remixed music, but you have a number of options including original. Oh, and it's widescreen! The graphic update is so true to the game that I noticed it the most when going back to the PC version. The true testament to this update is that I would rather play the Switch version!
The packaging for this game is even better than I expected. There is an actual full-color physical manual! It's awesome and it's worth reading. The music CD is pretty cool. The double-sided cover is super cool and I turned mine inside-out.
If there was one thing I would change, it would be to let me remap the controls. I would love to try putting the jumping or the shooting as shoulder buttons just to see if that could work. The controls are very good as they are, but it would be nice to have some the option.
I'm adding a couple of screenshots so you can see how good it looks. And it looks better in motion. It's really smooth and I would assume 60fps. I know that some are upset that the physical release is $30. Yeah, I would have preferred a $20 price point, but they definitely gave us some extras and it's a great game. If you don't want to buy it, the old PC free version is still available online. But I've gotten enough enjoyment from this game over the years that I don't mind supporting this physical release. It's a great game, and I do suggest it.
I feel a little harder than in other versions of the game the movement of the character, sometimes feel harder to make precise jumping on this version but in general the game is what I expected.
