Today is a huge day for video game fans and, well, Australia. Not only do we find out the verdict of the R18+ Rating but we get the glory that is Cave Story for WiiWare. Both the R18+ and Cave Story have nearly taken as long to come to fruition as each other. Well almost.
Cave Story (1000 Points, Nicalis, Demo Available) – It took longer then we would have liked but the precious game that is Cave Story is finally here! We get the completely original indie game for the cheaper price of 1000 points (US paid 1200) and still get the same great game.
The WiiWare version comes with upgraded music and graphics, new gameplay modes and all the bug fixes that the US version was missing.
This brand new recreation of the classic PC game ticks all the boxes and is possibly the best WiiWare game out there. The developers, Nicalis, have remained true to the original developer, Pixel, and have even got his help and support on the development of the update. Be sure to check out the demo to see what all the crying has been about.
Super Bonk (900 Points, Hudson, SNES) – Bonk is back, and ready for more bonking. Well, perhaps not. However it is probably the best classic platformer starring a large-headed caveman! Never played too much of the Bonk games myself, so I’ll let you tell me if it’s worth a bonk, err look!
None for Aussies this week!
So, after all is said and done, who is picking up Cave Story?
