Giana sisters was an Mario clone but staring two "girls". However the game itself is different. This game was brought back for the NDS with an completely different storylne and retelling ( meaning original function is lost ). In fact the game practically has no real story or structure at all, just gameplay. The original Amiga game was actually quite common awhile ago and only recently their has been an resurge of interest in this game. Honestly the game was really common and you could find it for less then $40. Some people are attempting to sell this game for overpriced amounts like $2000.

Personally I like the art of the original game but it like many other Amiga games was westerners ( like most us ) who wanted to creative and shows what happens when westerners makes video-games BEFORE the heavy influence of Japanese media before the internet.

In this case the influence was Mario at the time, one could assume among the many Mario clone games.
