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.

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.
