That screen shot at the end explains why the music sounds like a cat drowning. The comparison to SMB is totally apt; I didn't really see it before. I was aware of this game and just new that it as pretty bad, but that was about it. After watching a video to refresh myself (as I don't own this), I couldn't help but thinking that the 1st level looked like a child's rendition of SMB's colorful graphics in MS Paint.

I had a hard time nailing down exactly what I didn't like about this game. I played it repeatedly, staying up late and engaging in veritable marathons trying to figure it out. I eventually put a stop to that for fear of my sanity. Yeah, this game is terrible, and I think presentation is part of why. The other part is that it's about as dull as any game can get.

The only thing my milkshake brings to the yard is a subpoena.

In addition to the Mario-ness, the little seems to be dressed a lot like Link, at least on the cover.

'There would be tears and there would be strange laughter. Fierce births and deaths beneath umbrageous ceilings. And dreams, and violence, and disenchantment.'
