Retro Game Club!
In our first episode of the Retro Game Club segment Eric and I decided to play Alex Kidd in Miracle world. One of the original Sega Master System launch titles. The idea was to mimic Mario and make a recognizable mascot character. Although SMS did pretty terribly in America, Alex Kidd had a pretty long career! In the end though both of us thought this game was pretty bad despite having an impressive variety of gameplay including platforming, swimming, vehicles, puzzles, mazes and rock paper scissors matches. The real problem with the game? The horrible US box art. Look at it compared to the Japanese cover.
Join us next podcast having played Journey to Silius on NES! You don’t need to beat it or anything, just give the game an honest try and join the discussion. You can live tweet your experience at us, or save your feedback for a podcast comment. I think we can all have some fun playing classic games.
