SummaryGood platform adventure with story, map, inventory and shops.
The GoodSuper Mario Bros. is an obvious comparison, but Alex Kidd has a bit more depth i.e Alex receives directions from the friends and relatives he meets along the way, checks his path on a map and holds an inventory of magic items and vehicles. I also preferred punching blocks to head butting them. Having dialogue with bosses and beating them in games of "paper, rock, scissors" is an interesting touch too.
The BadWhile it was new and different at the time, it seems a little too cute and simple now. The game isn't exactly easy, but I'd say it's meant for children to play and master over a long period.
