Round 1. Way too much bouncing. It’s not fun at all. First boss was a piece of cake, reminiscent of Sonic or Wario Land. No big complaints for a first boss.
Round 2. What’s more fun than bouncing? How about climbing up a tree with your teeth for a whole level? Followed by even more bouncing? Followed by a boss that is essentially the same as the first, just a different appearance. And you have to be slightly more patient, which was hard for me because this time I was TRYING to rush through the game.
Round 3. A water level. Swimming in this game is a chore. Awful acrobatic bonus level. Just noticed that you can’t duck. The boss was again the same idea, but took way too many hits to kill. I wanted to give up.
Round 4. Starts to feel like a real game. Wish it started out like this. Boss is an ice-skating dinosauress. Easiest boss by far.
I felt like quitting about now. And you say “What? You said it was too short.” But I must have enjoyed it more back then. Otherwise I wouldn’t be complaining about the length. In any case, I continue because I’ve gotten this far already.
Round 5. Decent. No boss. The next level must be the end. Can’t wait.
Round 6. More climbing with teeth and then fighting all the bosses again a la Megaman. I just couldn’t bring myself to fight them, I was so sick of this.
The verdict is in. This is game is not bad for GB platformer. Not great either. I think it is short, but wouldn’t feel so short if you couldn’t instantly start where you die. Yes, that’s the problem. Thank you for listening to my story.
