Mappy is a worthwhile port, despite or because of the slightly shrunken levels, depending on who you ask. The bump in difficulty isn't unreasonable, and may actually be a welcome change depending on your personal tastes. It doesn't take very long to get through the game's 16 stages (you can do it 15 minutes or less if you're sufficiently skilled), but that doesn't hurt Mappy's quality as a score attack game. There are plenty of tricks to take advantage of as you work to improve your high score, and Mappy is a lot of fun to play casually. While I can't quite recommend the Famicom version of Mappy over the original arcade version, you really can't go wrong with either one. If you missed this gem in 80's, correct that oversight as soon as possible.
