The ball is vital, as it allows you to see your adversary's thoughts so that you can plan your Janken 'strategy' accordingly. "

pickhut says: "You know, Alex Kidd may tell us he was trained in the art of Shellcore, allowing him the ability to punch through rocks like it was nothing, but I refuse to believe that. No amount of training in the world can make him have a fist that's about the size of his head, no way. There's only one possible explanation: steroids. I guess this big-eared prince needed the extra help in his quest to save the kingdom of Radaxian from the evil Janken. It may have been in vain, though, because the first few ar..."

ThoughtFool1 says: "I had a lot of fun playing the game, and was really surprised by the gameplay variety in a platformer made in the mid-80's. Not only does it deliver on the gameplay, it also looked and sounded absolutely astounding. I'd recommend this game to pretty much is certainly a game worth playing!"
