You make this game sound like 50 cents well spent, because 45 minutes of entertainment for 50 cents is pretty cheap entertainment! The lack of the mechanics that made Adventure Island such a nail biter sound like a problem, but I always felt that series was a little too difficult for its own good. It all but had to be, so you would spend a bunch of hours finally beating that $60 game. Anyway, your criticisms all seem like they would apply to me, and it's not like I'm short on games to play (if anything, I'm short on time), so I definitely can see why you wouldn't have awarded the game a higher score despite the value it apparently provides. Yours was a better review than the game itself probably deserves: fun to follow along, quick to make convincing points, and then done before I had time to start wondering how much longer I would need to keep reading. Great stuff!

Side note: your review's tagline/summary really worked well for me, too!

"Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." - John F. Kennedy on reality

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world

Thanks, Jason. I know you like your retro games on the easier side, but even you might be bored by this rote, nearly challengeless retread. Glad you liked the review though!

I don't have to prove I'm refined - that's what makes me refined!
