When I first heard of Kero Blaster, I read that it is Studio Pixel’s spiritual successor to Cave Story. That’s a tall order, considering that Cave Story is a legendary game amongst the indie community. So, how do you create a follow-up that’s supposed to be better than one of the most critically acclaimed metroidvanias? Well, I think Studio Pixel knows that it doesn't have to; it can just create a great platformer that is well balanced, controls nicely, and emits its signature charm. And I’m ok with that.
