UPDATE: Wow! Front page! Thank you! I'd like to say that, yes it doesn't have much of a story, but it's only supposed to be a fun run-and-gun platformer made in a little over a week. And yes, we love Cave Story!

UPDATE 2: Now with a better intro and some tweaks.

Made for Flixel February!

Press P to pause. You can also use SPACE to jump and CTRL to fire.

We got it in *just* under the wire, and it's kind of rough. If you find any bugs or problems, let us know!

You, the lone crew member on a small vessel, find a space station near the edge of explored space beaming out a distress call. As anyone would do in such a situation, you blindly investigate.

Features include multiple weapons, rocket jumping, fast physics, and a retro style.

I would like to thank Synteza for producing the loops for us. They're awesome.

Yep.

This has a cool story with the computer AI and what had happened, those are my favorite Si-Fi stories. The game was fun and all but I hated th controls. If C and X were switched around it would have helped immensely also the enemies were repeated a lot and the rooms sometimes felt to me to be repetitive The areas could have changed in enviroment. Also like the guy below the sprites were to spritey sometimes.

Keep it up this game was great It needs medals :)

Pretty good for a Cave Story clone

Nothing really to complain about, unoriginal in terms of story and gameplay, but the game itself is solid. Unfortunately I had to take a few points off for that.

I would suggest doing something more original with your next title, everything about this felt way too heavy with cave story. The combination of art style, weapons, and game style kind of over did it and moved it from a homage to a clone. And also perhaps trying for more weapons and ideas.

A good example of what kind of shifted it from inspired by to a mere clone was the way the machine gun worked. Taking the whole recoil to fly mechanic using the same type of gun and all just felt a bit too.. stolen.

What makes a game a homage is adding your own ideas and such to the mix, and unfortunately, this game is more Cave Story than it is anything else.

Even still, its really good.

Alrighty!

Excellent game, I think all of the people saying this is copying Cave Story are missing the point. It's not COPYING Cave Story. It's INSPIRED by Cave Story.
I actually did a let's play of this game, check it out if you want.

A nice little "Cave Story" knock-off...

I like the setting, I like the graphics, and I like this game.

It's almost a pity you chose to mirror the mechanics of Cave Story rather than create your own. But then again, Cave Story was a very good game, and you seem to capture the freeware's fun here too.

Slightly unoriginal, but forgivable.

really fun game

definitely a nice homage to metroid and other similar adventure games. Kinda wished there was a more interesting end boss but it was still fun while it lasted.
