Un jeu de qualité surtout destiné à un public plus jeune et féminin qui a comme seul défaut d'être extrêmement court.
Cute visuals, charming music, fun action, and easy gameplay (despite exploration elements and a nonlinear final level) make the adventure ideal for younger gamers.
I have to give Capcom credit for going after a niche market. For that purpose, they have succeeded as it is a decent game. Serious players don't have to be warned about the game as the title says it all. For the younger player this is a must have as it is a great nonviolent game.

At the tender age of six, I beat The Little Mermaid for the NES. It was the first game I had ever plowed through and I felt like I had conquered the world. I did cartwheels in my room (I was a spoiled only child with a large room), I wa-hoo!-ed all over the place, I told my parents, who were proud of their son’s gaming prowess. It was a wonderful day that I still remember fondly. But I don’t mind admitting that I beat The Little Mermaid, not because I was a gaming prodigy, but because it’s one of the easiest platforming games on the NES. In fact, I knew it was easy while I was playing it, but I didn’t care. I destroyed Ursula, I saw the ending cutscenes, I proved to myself that I could beat a game. That’s all that mattered.

It is fun and easy to beat. Will you drag it out every couple of weeks to relive the memories, umm no probably not.

A great intro for young players but if you've reached puberty leave it alone.
