It's a strange, strange game. Buy with caution.
@5 - Well It's not as well made as the mario games. For some reason you can jump high enough to get off the top of the screen, but views dont change. Life is easy to acuire and bosses are, while well designed, badly implemented into the game, and glitch quite a bit. Still not necessarilly a bad buy, but you'll see what I mean about its weirdness if you get it. :3
