Although Cave Story may perhaps be one of the most ported titles to date, we'll never complain about its arrival on another retro gaming platform. Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya's classic 2004 PC game, also known as Doukutsu Monogatari, has now been ported over to the Sega Dreamcast, and is ready to download.
If you're only just tuning into this mysterious Cave Story, you're in for a treat. This retro inspired title is a 2D platforming homage to the likes of Metroid and Castlevania, providing a huge cave to explore and countless enemies to blast away. Its similarities to the aforementioned titles come with its inclusion of intricate weapon systems and platforming puzzles, further adding to Cave Story's depth and addictiveness.
This all new Sega Dreamcast port comes via a complete open-source rewrite of the game's engine known as NXEngine. Those who happen to have a Dreamcast SD Card Reader to hand will be pleased to hear they can drop this timeless classic straight onto their memory cards, whilst the more traditional retro gamers amongst us can turn to a burnable CD version instead.
