A solid reworking of a brutal but characterful retro platform game, which offers a fascinating insight into the earliest days of the genre.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX is a visually gorgeous upgrade to a very rose-tinted release. While the flaws of the original game remain laid bare, Jankenteam accentuates the positives, reimagining one of console gaming’s earliest universes with stunning artwork, great animation, and a sophisticated score. New players will struggle with dated and baffling design choices, but those who hold tight the carefree afternoons of the Sega Master System will find a delightful trip down memory lane awaits.

‎The remake of the legendary Alex Kidd In Miracle World is already a reality. The classic of 8bits comes back to life by the hand of the Spanish Jankenteam in a reimagining that leaves us wanting more.‎

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.

A praiseworthy work of revival of this classic. It updates and makes many of its original features better, but that's not enough to compensate its original flaws: basically, a brutal, unfair difficulty that may make you despair.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX from Merge Games and Jankenteam is a very niche product with very niche marketability. I imagine the game will be received well in territories where the Sega Master System held on to a longer life-span, such as Brazil and Europe. For the rest of the world though, there just isn’t enough here to bring Alex Kidd into the modern age.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX still remains a difficult platformer, but also an extremely varied and modernized one, with grace and competence in terms of graphics and sound.

Alex Kidd in Monster World DX is a faithful remake of the original, but the difficulty of a bygone era rears its ugly head far too often.
