Curly on the Fritz (and I hope at least one person gets both references)

glacier's Description

I am sure you all recognize the iconic 'Man Eating' Moloch Machine of Fritz Lang's 1927 black and white science-fiction classic film, Metropolis, but what may not be immediately obvious is the face at the left of the tile belongs to the kind-hearted-if-somewhat-fragile Curly Brace, from the 2004 independent video game, Doukutsu Monogatari (Cave Story). At various points in your adventure as Quote, a mysterious military robot, Curly(another robot) fights against and alongside you against a maniacal Doctor bent on taking over the floating island you find yourselves trapped within, his nefarious purposes unknown to you or your friends!


Anyway all this is to say that the original version is better than the remaster and you can get it without paying a damn cent to the jerks over at Nicalis, so yeah. That is my take. :V
