The Cave Story+ "grid view" image on Steam

Cave Story+ is a Cave Story remake for PC, Mac (now defunct), and Nintendo Switch developed by Nicalis. It was released on Steam on November 22, 2011 as well as the Mac App Store on September 7, 2011. It features remastered graphics and music as well as several new game modes, one of which being exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version.

Differences Edit

Audio and visuals Edit

Cave Story+ has three music options. Players can choose between the original chiptune music, remastered chiptune music, or a "new" soundtrack. The game can also be played with the original graphics or remastered graphics with quadruple the resolution (twice as wide and twice as tall). Players may also select to play the game with an English translation or the original Japanese, though the Japanese language selection only extends to the scrolling and inventory text. Status indicators such as the "Level Up!" text and the "Yes/No" option prompts remain written in English.

Seasonal graphics Edit

Within certain dates, the game changes graphics to match the occasion. This adjustment is togglable and can be turned off in the Options menu when the following dates occur to play with the regular graphics.

  • From October 26 to November 2, the game uses Halloween themed graphics.
  • From December 24 to January 6, the game has Christmas/Winter themed graphics

Difficulty levels Edit

Cave Story+ has a selection of three difficulty levels. Easy mode halves the HP of enemies and halves the damage they do to Quote. Original difficulty, the standard difficulty, is identical to the original game; Quote takes 100% damage, and enemies have 100% HP. Hard mode doubles the HP of enemies and removes all Life Capsules but one from the game, leaving the player with a maximum of 8 HP. Additionally, the Missile Launcher is not available in Hard mode.

Each difficulty level provides a visual cue during gameplay - in Easy mode, Quote wears a yellow outfit, in Original mode, he wears his standard red outfit, and in Hard mode, he wears a baby blue outfit and has a more human-like appearance.

Additional features Edit

Cave Story+ features support for three concurrent save files. Also, several new game modes are playable, including Curly Story, the Machine Gun Challenge, Sanctuary Time Attack, Boss Attack, the Wind Fortress, and the Nemesis challenge.

Achievements Edit

Seventy-six achievements can be earned in Cave Story+.
