Alex Kidd In Miracle World DX brings back one of the classics of history in the best possible way. A game where graphic remodeling coexists with archaic and old-fashioned gameplay but which is still as brutally fun as it was before. A demanding platform that will undoubtedly dazzle both fans of the original game and current players looking for a new challenge.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX is the same game we all played as a kid, with a new coat of paint and it works for the most part. Though the game might prove to be too difficult for today's gamers.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX is a great remake of a Master System classic. The game respects its origins, providing a modern look without messing with the source material too much, but at the same time adding new features like some levels. Perhaps its only problem is just that – the total content offered by the package was considerably large in the 1980s, but it is small by today's standards. Either way, you should check it out either for nostalgia or for those who want to know SEGA's forgotten mascot.

Remakes of true classics are usually cause for some concern, particularly a game that’s almost 35 years old, but this is so much more than just an old game with a new skin. Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX balances perfectly the updates an old game needs whilst still staying true to what made the original such a landmark title. The quirks of the gameplay are all still there, controlling just like the original, although with little tweaks that make the experience even better. The new levels fit so well, it’s pretty, and it sounds good to boot.

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 returns in a great remake that will delight fans of the original game, although perhaps his control will make him ugly compared to those who enter new. His main flaws come when he has tried to put the artistic before the functional, with elements that prevent a correct visualization of what we have in front of, or melodies that are too far from the original work. Still, if you enjoyed the adventures of the onigiris little monkey-eating boy in SEGA's 8bits, you MUST buy this remake.

‎Seeing Alex Kidd again for me was a great joy and I'm sure many other viejunos will feel the same way. But not only of nostalgia is lived and the title is a great addition to today, perhaps, few good references of the silverware genre in general. The game will also please newcomers to the franchise as long as they keep in mind that despite the somewhat childish graphics, the dynamics of the game are harsh and not at all simple, even with the infinite lives option activated.‎

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.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX is a beautifully faithful remaster of one of Sega’s first landmark console titles, and it’s a very solid way of experiencing that slice of gaming history.
