Alex Kidd: The Lost Stars was the beginning of a steep slope downhill for Sega's original mascot. The first Alex Kidd game was fairly good (We gave it a 7/10), but for the second game Sega made a massive mistake - They basically completely changed the gameplay! Instead of featuring special gameplay elements like vehicles and breaking blocks, the game is basically just a really straight-forward platformer. It's still somewhat decent, but it's also the last "good" Alex Kidd game.
Watch out for our Alex Kidd: The Lost Stars review which should be up soon.
On the WiiWare side of things you can finally grab a Konami game they actually made themselves - Yes, it's the long-awaited Gradius ReBirth!
