Oh how long I have waited for you! Yes yes, I know the PC version (and others) have been out – and free – for aaaaaages, but there hasn’t been a version yet for anything I own and use for games. Announced for WiiWare back in, what, 412AD?, Cave Story was hit by delay after delay, finally coming out in the UK on Friday. And oh is it lovely.

Retro graphics, slightly broken translated dialogue, bizarre plot about bunnies and robots and deadly red flowers, and simply spiffing platforming and puzzley almost RPG-y goodness. Such greatness means I’ve reached almost the end of the game already, but am struggling with the end boss. At least, I think it’s the end boss.

Hurrah for ace indie quirky old-style games!
