They charge $15 for this on Steam (Sure, it ads a FEW extra features on par with the Wii release... but then doesn't update further to be on par with the "newest" Switch version) So, def take the free version from the CaveStory website.

The best metroidvania-style game I played in my life. I wish I could find an alternative that looks like it.
