    Alex Kidd in Miracle World brings back a classic Master System game with new visuals, game modes, and themes. It's worth a try, especially if you like hardcore platforming titles.

    Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX is a worthy remake of the 8-bit classic, modernising the game but keeping the same gameplay that made it a classic all those years ago.

    As a person who was not alive during the heyday of this video game, I can safely say that it is completely worth it. This remaster brings the best of this classic to a new generation with many improvements that makes it feel new.

    Alex Kidd, SEGA’s forgotten mascot that preceded Sonic, returns in a remastered version of the 1986 plartformer. Miracle World DX is faithful to the original game but some new features (e.g. the option to disable the lives limit) made it easier. Although pretty, enhanced graphics failed to convince me completely, as softened edges, noticeably lower contrast, and new foreground objects (that sometimes obscure the action) are a bit confusing. It’s also a shame that you need to complete the game to unlock the classic mode. [09/2021, p.46]

    The developers did a wonderful job at faithfully remastering a legacy game but the truth is that the original game wasn't that great. A great purchase for Sega fans and for those who want to own a piece of gaming's history but there are a lot of other great platformers out there.

    Both true to its original foundation and distant in its changes, Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX is arguably not the remake fans of the character could hope for. Some will think the progression is out of date, and they won't be wrong, but the biggest problem is imprecise controls and collisions with enemies. With its very colorful production and quality musical themes, the experience remains correct, but less striking than expected.

    Alex Kidd In Miracle World DX is a game only a diehard fan could love. It is frustrating, repetitive, and plagued with the issues of a bygone era. Despite the lovely graphical update, there is very little here for any newcomers, and seems a waste of potential in favour of appeasing old fans.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Brilliant Game everything I asked for. As an AlexKidd fan I'm very happy. Why it Succeeded 1. Beautiful Graphics 2. Beautiful Cutscenes 3. Great Gameplay 4. Brilliant Animation 5. Elating Music and Sound Effects 6. Teaches people to play Rock, Paper, Scissor nowadays 7. Great Story feels different more Mario game and Story making it Iconic Although Dying Animation doesn't really bother me at all, maybe on Emulator. It's good returning the Alex Kidd game because  people would remember the characters and how it should've sell. Especially the Fact I want to hear people talk good about this game

    After playing it for a while I can say that's not perfect, but not that bad. Alex Kidd fans will enjoy it for sure.
