Unpolished 90s Funblunderkind | Nov. 1, 2014 | See all blunderkind's reviews »
I caught this game on sale, and would recommend it if you can do the same. It is fun, but it has an unpolished feel. Some levels flow beautifully and feel really well-thought-out, while others seem to have been included just because nobody thought to cut them. Dynamics around J1M are interesting but not well executed; I spent more time grumbling about using the fidgety little thing than I did enjoying it. The controls aren't as tight or responsive as needed, but you will adjust.
If you were an 80s/90s kid and recall those "99 cents for a week-long rental" games that weren't all that memorable but still fun, you'll find yourself thinking of them again when you play Terrian Saga: KR-17.
