In this platformer from the 1980s, help Alex Kidd in a race against time to find the 12 missing zodiac signs.

Before Sonic came along and propelled them into the big time, the world identified a big eared lad by the name of Alex Kidd as Sega’s answer to Mario. Alex Kidd in Miracle World was a worthy alternative to Super Mario Bros in the mid 80s and when...

After Miracle World the Alex Kidd games really started getting worse with every installment. This one is still ok, but don't bother with the rest, if they release them!

I have never played an Alex Kidd game but from watching the video above Miracle world looks better

At least this one's still way better than the Enchanted Castle...for 500 points this might be worth the download.

Yeah, this looks kind of boring. I might get it someday, but it's pretty low on my "must-buy" list.

Oh. It's a port of an arcade game right? I might give it a go if it comes to europe.

Still waiting eagerly for this.
Can you eagerly wait for Majora's Mask next Sunday? :)

Could care less about Majora's when I'm waiting on more essential titles.

And funny how this just came out today!

Yeah and that's why you should wish for Majora's Mask (however if you'd rather have Earthbound, wish for that) because you have magic wish power, or something

It's sir...
And sue me for not being such a Zelda fan. XD
Don't get me started on my Zelda thoughts cause I bet I'll start bruising some egos or something to that effect.

Anyway, Majora's Mask may be "essential" but what I'm referring to is more obscure games that don't have as big of a chance of being added to the VC as MM does. MM is a definite add. No doubt about that. Something else on my list like say DK64 - one of my favourite games ever - isn't as likely, I'm afraid. :(

@Digiki: You speak as though I've never played it before. :P

You bet you'll start bruising some egos huh? Why don't we talk about how stupid everything in the Zelda series is? The names for everything are unimaginative, the music is pathetic, and the characters (save for Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf) are poorly designed. And on top of all that, you struggle to have any fun while playing it. The only good Zelda game is Twilight Princess.

Zelda is simply overblown nonsense, just like Mario. But Alex Kidd on the other hand, wow! How creative, a little kid fighting monsters! Those guys at Sega sure are brilliant!

You're completely wrong on all accounts, Shinnok. I hope you were joking.
