Taken as a single package Prinny 1-2 exploded and reloaded is not so bad. However, it is impossible to turn a blind eye to the mere porting operation performed by the developers. The two games have been modernized by a bland filter for 2D elements, without any possibility to intervene on the graphics. The result is a slightly blurred image, even in portable mode, which together with the rigid and frustrating gameplay, outline a very lazy and unattractive package.

While it's possible to get into the retro groove of Prinny's perilous platforming, neither game does anything interesting enough to earn your patience. And collecting two games together only reveals how much of the same ground is covered by both. If anything, additions in the sequel water down the formula. If you simply must experience an unathletic penguin falling to its death again and again, stick with the simpler original. Or better yet, search for 'penguin falling over' on YouTube. Cheaper and a lot more entertaining.

For someone who isn’t a fan of the original Disgaea games, I was surprised at just how much I enjoyed my time with Prinny 1•2: Exploded and Reloaded. It’s not the best remaster I’ve seen and the challenge can be overly frustrating at times, but there’s still a lot of fun to be had in its simple-to-learn, hard-to-master mechanics and charming characters.

Prinny 1•2: Exploded and Reloaded is a lovely piece of gaming history that holds up decently well and is still a fun little platformer to this day.
