Sweet review, dude. But! Throwing shade at Alex Kidd games?? For shame. I noticed in the YouTube clip that the pedicopter bit looks exactly like it did on the Master System, except that it looks a lot more difficult to crash -- bumping into ceilings overhead is supposed to lose you your chopper! Anyway, I might try this thing out -- quirky and nostalgic? That's worth a try.

I like Alex Kidd, but... I mean, most of his games were pretty bad. Also yeah, the copter is indestructible in this game, unless you hit the spikes or those beam-thingies.

Thanks for reading! Pixel Ripped 1989 is a pretty interesting experience, but it's one that can only be played with the VR headset. If you don't have one, sorry; maybe I should have made that more clear in the review. I'll rectify that.

Oh crap, I don't have the VR headset. Ah well. One day, maybe.

And yes, of course, most of the Alex Kidd games were bad. I had them all at one point. Miracle World was the most celebrated. Shinobi World was good, Lost Stars was... limited, and Hi-Tech World and Enchanted Castle were downright bad.

It's also available on Steam, so if you ever decide to pick up something like HTC Vive or Oculus Rift, you can check it out there, too.

That Alex Kidd order is about the same with me. I had them all at one point, too, except Enchanted Castle, which I tried much later on. I don't understand how they messed up so badly with Enchanted Castle...
