Wonderful graphics, character design, excellent controls, and some of the best music of the 8-bit era round out a near-perfect title, if not for the overwhelming difficulty of some areas.

Gimmick! risque de repousser des joueurs par sa courbe de difficulté, mais pour ceux qui aiment le défi et qui sont prêt à lui consacrer du temps, vous découvrirez un jeu solide et satisfaisant sur tous les niveaux!
One final note about just how much attention to detail went into Mr. Gimmick: accumulated points actually matter in this game. Killing enemies sometimes yields bombs or health potions, but this doesn’t happen randomly. Item drops are triggered when the tens and hundreds digits of your point score are the same. Also, certain actions build up your points in predictable ways, such as jumping on a pterodactyl’s head over and over, so if you’re paying enough attention you can actually manipulate which enemies will drop what, and when. It’s this sort of thorough, inventive spirit that allows games like Mr. Gimmick to retain their appeal 21 years after they’re released. I think it’s aged very well.
Mr. Gimmick påminner som sagt en hel del om Ufouria, både vad det gäller grafik, musik och spelkontroll. Spelet innehåller inget nytt, men är ändå ett helt okej plattformsspel. Det är gulligt, lätt att komma in i och därmed perfekt för de yngre Nintendospelarna.
Mr. Gimmick has a few cool options to the game play and the cute theme will attract younger players.
