    Worthy of special mention is the original Iraqi-influenced musical score, which is both soothing and appropriate for the setting of the game.

    The resulting game is a smart, well thought out platformer that will challenge even the most experienced gamers.

    Charming and demanding in equal measure, Babylonian Twins shrugs off one or two outdated design mechanics to remind us what was so good about 16-bit gaming.

    For platform fans that like a bit of head scratching thrown in for good measure, it's certainly worth checking out, and fans hoping to play the original won't be disappointed.

    If it had a decent checkpoint system, Babylonian Twins would be excellent, so let's hope future builds respond to the feedback.
