Momodora (2010)


Momodora is a nicely done platformer whose graphics show a big Cave Story influence. It’s not per se a Cave Story clone, there isn’t a leveling up mechanism nor much of the adventure elements found in CS. But it really looks the part and the controls are equally good. The game isn’t very long. Due to the sparsely set save points it can be a moderate challenge and take some time to complete, if you aren’t a platformer ace. Since the game doesn’t bring anything new to table in terms of platformer elements nor presents much of a compelling narrative, it won’t sit long in your memory. But it’s fun as long as it lasts.

I wonder whether something happens if you manage to collect all the items. Different, more upbeat ending maybe?
