This game is not just great fun, but really educational. You travel through all the famous retro consoles, learning about the machines and having good time on the challenging levels. The difficulty is perfect, hardcore fans should aim for the achievements for bigger challenges and not so talented players can complete everything as well. The graphics and soundtrack is quite amazing too and everything feels really authentic. I was hoping to find a great, enjoyable and fun classic platformer game on Steam and this one is truly great, I can highly recommend this for everybody. Don't hesitate, just buy it.
