Description

Alex Kidd, resident of planet Aries, is the brother to the king. One day he comes across a rumour that his long lost father, King Thor, is alive somewhere on the planet Paperock.

Now Paperock is a place where you have to be good at the game of 'Paper, Rock and Scissors' to get anywhere. With that knowledge you must take control of Alex, guide him through the odd natured, unfriendly planet and help him find his father.

The Kidd is back!

Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle is another one of those games that I remember playing way back when on my Sega Genesis. I actually picked this one up from a Mega Drive Classics pack and found the game to still be very much playable even in this day and age. Of course, growing up with this game probably helps but I find that a lot of modern Indie games try to emulate the kind of classic gameplay found in Alex Kidd so if you are a platform game then give this one a shot.

Good and challenging platformer

Alex Kid in the Enchanted Castle is a very good platform game. The gameplay is quite fast. The levels are full of enemies and obstacles you must avoid to reach the end. Alex can defeat his enemies using his punches and kickes.You can even drive some vehicle like a motorcycle and an helicopter. The game is never boring and the level of difficult is not low.

Harder than I remember...

Back when I was much smaller, this game was so addicting. I played it all the time. In a sense, I even looked like Alex as a child.

Loading it up recently, I've realized that this game is way harder than I remember. Maybe I just used to play the first level over and over again and never really played past it but even still it's a great first level..

Still, this game holds a piece of my childhood and I'm glad I'm able to pick it up again many years later.

Alex Kidd In the Enchanted Castle is a retro side-scrolling platformer. The goal of this game is to help Alex (the monkey/kid) find has father by defeating enemies and surviving. You can get powerups by challenging monkeys in the houses in rock-paper-scissor games.

This game has a lack of plot and annoying music. The punches and kicks may sometimes miss the monsters even though it appears to have hit. The levels are boring and repetitive. After finishing the first stage, each stage on will be nearly identical; the monster may look different and the background may change, but the gameplay is essentially the same. The bosses are random and pointless; you have to beat them in a rock-paper-scissors game which requires luck and if you lose you have to go back to the beginning of the stage and try again unless if you have the powerup that tells you their move. The only difficult stages are the last two stages. I would not recommend this game, Sega has a lot of better games, you should not waste your time on this one.
