Pixel didn't do this.

And his tiling didn't look make the maps look like they were made of individual tiles, which is enough to make up for that.

It's still a bit of a nitpick, especially with a reaction that makes it look like it's a big deal.

Couple of things

- Noticed a few grammar/spelling mistakes here and there (a couple of don'ts without the ')
- The second part of first cave felt a bit square and block
- The fireball felt way too powerful for First Cave. Honestly, it might be a good idea to either nerf the fireball or not give the fireball in the first place.


Overall, I enjoyed this mod so far. I'm looking forward to seeing what Egg Corridor looks like.

If you ignore the ugly chests and tiles the mod is pretty good. Keep it up.

A slight text error. The Gunsmith says the gun is in the third chest from the left, but it's in the third chest from the RIGHT.

This mod definitely shows promise, I'm glad I played it. I like the idea of taking a request from the gunsmith rather than flat out stealing his gun albeit the Plasmaball is overpowered. I feel you should trade the Plasmaball for the Polarspark and create a trade ring throughout the game to get all sorts of various items, weapons, etc....Or possibly have temporary trades like giving the Plasmaball for a small period of time and then getting it back after completing a task, similar to the final fetch quest in the Plantation in the real game where Momorin temporarily takes your booster and only returns it after completing the quest (despite the fact you can just ignore her and get the Mimiga ending). I want you to pursue this project further, I'd love to see more of it. And other than the issues previously stated by the other commentators here, I like the new colours you gave the chest, gives some individuality and separates it from the original game. Lots of things follow this trend and it's something I hope to see more of, keep it up!

Left and right in my country are for some reason flipped compared to everywhere else (excluding maybe England, since schools here teach British English). I'll fix this.
- The fireball felt way too powerful for First Cave. Honestly, it might be a good idea to either nerf the fireball or not give the fireball in the first place.
(snip) the Plasmaball is overpowered.
I made levels 1 and 2 a bit weaker (1 hit instead of 2), but I powered up level 3 by increasing the damage from 3 to 4. I'll probably try lowering the damage a bit more, but if that doesn't work...

This seems like a pretty good substitute.

A new demo (kinda) is out!
Demo 1.1, a simple update, more like a hotfix.
A new demo with actual new content (like Egg Corridor) is Coming Soon™!

I REALLY like the idea of "quest giving" being added into Cave Story for extra items, if you continue with that theme I would REALLY enjoy this mod. I liked what I played so far despite the fact that my crappy version of Zorin Linux makes all the ORG drums and sound effects sound like trash. Keep up the good work, and contact me if you need le music.
