(or for the terminally lazy, has a prepatched download)

Play. Discuss.

This game is awesome.

It's too bad you don't see these kinds of games available anymore commercially.

3 Name: THRILLHO 2005-05-23 07:38 ID:JO642r/T

Played it already. Stuck at Balfrog at the moment. ._.

What a wonderful game, though!

4 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E 2005-05-23 12:35 ID:+hp4RzGh

How many endings does this game have?! How many times must I replay it? Argh!

5 Name: THRILLHO 2005-05-23 16:17 ID:+872wuAg

Only three, I thought... The bad ending, the normal one, and the secret stage one.

6 Name: THRILLHO 2005-05-23 16:54 ID:uyQjpGRp

Can't believe no one has made a thread about this before!
Eh, lol.

7 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E 2005-05-24 01:40 ID:TZ9j08yW

I don't quite understand how the professor/jetpack thing is supposed to work. That's just odd.

I never found the jetpack much use though. I always found the machinegun better for flying around.

8 Name: THRILLHO 2005-05-24 05:46 ID:+872wuAg

Haven't tried it yet... but I believe if you don't get the jetpack, it's possible to get a better jetpack later, and you can find the Tow Rope and save Curly (which eventually leads to the secret stage.)

9 Name: THRILLHO 2005-05-25 23:30 ID:+872wuAg

Ah fuck, the Mac version doesn't run under Tiger. :(

10 Name: THRILLHO 2005-06-06 22:13 ID:uyQjpGRp


Don't go after the prof. when you see him fall down and he'll come later with BOOSTER 2 OMG

11 Name: THRILLHO 2005-06-07 00:23 ID:HYMWnbqY

Hell level is frustrating. >:(

12 Name: THRILLHO 2005-06-08 05:00 ID:lnFRxc1f

Those two hearts at the start of B3 reappear if you fly back up to B2 and go down again. Easy way to recharge your health.

14 Name: THRILLHO 2005-09-19 09:49 ID:cYVuRCry

Runs extremly slowly for me and the tips in the manual don't help...

15 Name: THRILLHO 2005-09-20 20:39 ID:tlTDhUQc

that begs the question, what kind of comp are you running it on? gimme some specs.

16 Name: 74 2005-09-20 22:23 ID:v5LNo/j9

The game can run at full speed in 320x240 windowed mode on a P200

17 Name: THRILLHO 2005-09-21 01:11 ID:GI9gtXSO

My specs are:

AMD Athlon XP 2200+
1.79 GHz

And the damn thing won't run under any resolution with any sensible speed....

18 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E 2005-09-21 10:40 ID:Heaven

Athlon XP? Is that a frequency scaling version?

If yes, try locking the frequency with a utility before starting the game. I doubt this is the cause, but it's worth a try.

19 Name: 2005-09-21 12:04 ID:Heaven

XP Desktop CPU's don't frequency scale twat, only the mobile versions do and since >>17 mentioned nothing about a laptop... let's assume they are using a desktop PC?

20 Name: 17 2005-09-21 18:31 ID:oJC/ldXg

Yeah, it's a desktop PC.

21 Name: THRILLHO 2005-09-22 00:38 ID:OyahaUEi

I can't beat the damn robot thing in the labyrinth. Yeah, I know how to disable it... but I'm nearly dead by the time it's disabled.

22 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E 2005-09-22 04:44 ID:Heaven

The one that goes back and forth??

There's a fast way, and a slow way. I used the slow way: bubble gun. At level 3 it's a great defensive weapon.

As long as you avoid the treads, it's hard to lose. Enemy projectiles keep dropping health and powerups.

So I gave Cave Story another shot and it does get a lot more fun after a while. It really needed a better beginning, though.

Now, a question: Is there some key to skip the goddamn annoying click-fest text messages?

24 Name: 17 2005-09-22 12:10 ID:Heaven


25 Name: THRILLHO 2005-09-24 06:14 ID:HWYbd8ij

Great game! (´_ゝ`)

You can tell a huge amount of effort went in to it. Nicely thought out gameplay (you can see the metroid influence), and I love the music... hehe.

>Now, a question: Is there some key to skip the goddamn annoying click-fest text messages?

I know this isn't what you're looking for, but I hope you have noticed that clicking while lines are printing will further speed up the printing? And yes, this only makes the description 'click-fest' more accurate.

27 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2005-09-25 14:23 ID:m81i4Ztx

When I was stuck at that one boss battle that has the endless cutscene before it, somehow either the game felt pity on me, or I accidentially enabled some hidden option that turned off the text printing, massively cutting down on the clicking needed.

I never got that to work again, though.

28 Name: Alexander!DxY0NCwFJg!!MF8+ySC1 2005-09-27 21:25 ID:Heaven

Now I've played it a lot more......<3 Curly Brace.

29 Name: 17 2005-09-28 06:47 ID:Heaven

I want to play, too! :((

30 Name: THRILLHO 2005-09-28 12:52 ID:Heaven

Sue's mom is hotter!

31 Name: 17 2005-10-05 05:53 ID:3O+zxqih

Age for I need HALP!

32 Name: THRILLHO 2005-10-05 15:50 ID:Heaven

get a mac

33 Name: 17 2005-10-05 15:51 ID:Heaven

That's mean!

34 Name: THRILLHO 2005-10-06 21:39 ID:Heaven

By the way, at NDK this year I saw a dude cosplaying as Quote. He should've dragged a Curly cosplayer along with a rope or somethin'.

35 Name: THRILLHO 2005-10-07 00:15 ID:oOQV8+3c

think that guy was posting in /v/

did anyone get pics?

36 Name: THRILLHO 2005-10-16 19:13 ID:yqmxpg6D

I just finished this with the secret ending, great game. Runs almost perfectly on Linux using Wine, only missing the area transition effect and a few minor audio glitches.

37 Name: THRILLHO 2005-10-17 15:47 ID:Y7pmD3Xx


Just finished the game, and it was a little to easy, but fun...i guess. It wasn't as great as people have made it out to be, but i still was able to enjoy it.

38 Name: THRILLHO 2005-10-17 16:23 ID:HThJ8aRJ

39 Name: THRILLHO 2005-11-01 21:52 ID:7l6zY2Zp

Cave Story is the best platform game ever :)

40 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-17 01:17 ID:zPp6JcYa

I just found out that I had to use this "Robot Claw" thing to save the girl, and now I have to start over because I won't get the good ending.

That's so goddamn gay.

41 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-17 06:09 ID:z2aQ0nWS

I like leaving the girl to die !!!

42 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-24 18:40 ID:zPp6JcYa

Dear Cave Story
RE: Final Cave (Hard Mode)

Why do you hate me? What did I ever do to you?!?

43 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-25 10:46 ID:TKF36U12


After having played through the Hell stage and dying a few hundred times I've noticed that if you die, the text printing stops for text that you've seen before. But the first time you see the text, there's no way to skip it.

45 Name: THRILLHO 2006-01-12 23:03 ID:wHHItfx1

this game is so fun, such a worthwhile game, we should write an appreciation letter to the creator! lol
music is really cool too! like mooon song and mischevious robot, now i need to replay it to not save curly brace

Has anyone tried moding the game? Theres some information about it on (reposting the link so people won't have scroll around looking for it.) Theres also a forum about it at . I tried making an account but it says I'm not allowed to post, MODD disalowed my account or something (fucking phpbb.) The account name is Toshiaki and the pasword is qwerty, if anyone else wants to try posting there.

47 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E : 2006-04-26 23:49 ID:Heaven

Someone on world4ch was developing a mod for a while. Apparently the game is not amenable to modding, but he managed change a few things and make it harder.
