Cave Story

This Japanese side-scroller has you trying to make your way through a series of caves, avoiding obstacles and enemies along the way. You’ll have to download both the game and a separate English-language patch to make it work — unless, of course, you speak Japanese.

  1. Honestly, Cave Story is probably the best thing you can get for exactly $0.00. For a freeware game, the story is remarkably complex (if rather quirky), the characters are sketched out pretty well, and—most importantly—the game has about four hours of features, including TWO secret levels.

    Apparently, the programmer—known only as “Pixel”—spent five years working on this game. It shows. Download it.

    One final note: Be sure to drag the game INTO the English Patch. I’m quite certain it won’t work otherwise.

  2. I agree, this is an awesome game – 3am by the time I could stop playing the first time and if I hadn’t had to work the next day I’d have been there til dawn. There’s a bit of talking between characters that’s tedious the second, third and fourth times you might have to watch it because something ate you, but it’s more impatience to get back to playing than anything else! I like it better than SuperMario (don’t tell anyone)…

  3. This is a really fun game. Its stunning retro 8-bit sounds and graphics are spectacular, and it has one of the coolest story lines ever. I definitely recommend it, especially for retro, RPG, or adventure lovers. There’s also a remake version you can buy on Steam, but it’s around $8.
