Life on Raizing island is tough. The better you are at collecting food, the harder it gets.

Ketsui for me. That was the pinnacle for both art direction and gameplay for Cave. Gotta love those weird little helicopter ships and lock on mechanics.

I would play Progear, Pink Sweets, Muchi Muchi, Mushihime 1&2, & Death Smiles, and ESPRade one last time BEFORE leaving for the desert island. I would not want to take them with me. Otherwise I would hate them. Like that stupid coconut...

If I had to pick one probably Muchi Muchi Pork because it is so absurd and fun. But I would drown it in the ocean after a couple days. That way I would miss it and not grow to loathe my fav Cave shmup. Then I would be ispired to make it back to civilization to play it again!

I would say all of the Cave games as all of that cardboard would burn nice to keep you warm at night :lol:

Why? Not trolling here, just interested in your opinion.

Same here. I prefer the soundtrack and the art. Also the first CAVE game I actually played properly and cleared (my first kit too)!

I like the music better and I think the scoring system is much nicer. But the most important reason for me is that Mushihimesama feels like an epic journey that has a logical build up to the climax whereas Mushihimesama Futari feels more random. To me there's no real logic in the order of the stages and even the enemies seem random to me...first dino's/ dragons, then sea creatures, insects and then dino's/ dragons again. It doesn't make sense to me. The first game just feels more coherent in just about everything.
