Awesome: Cave Story

  • The fight against the Core, not to mention the music.
  • Raiding the Sacred Grounds with Curly strapped on your back who gives you some GREAT cover while a great music plays and the story of Ballos unfolds. The two bosses at the end, the Heavy Press and Ballos, are both amazing fights, as well.
  • The fact that this game was created entirely by one person. From scratch. Including the game engine and music software.
  • King in general. Especially after he dies, if the sword is powered enough his ghost will appear and fight with you TOTALLY BADASS
  • Before the the Sacred Grounds, there is another awesome Curly moment. Going through the heart of the labyrinth with Curly's theme while destroying everything in your path feels awesome.
  • Fighting Monster X. Riding and jumping from tank tread to tank tread, avoiding missiles and other creatures, and attacking at key moments all at the same time gives a great feeling of speed and precision to the fight.
