Ready Set Indie Games Live Streams: Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX (PC)

The Following game Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX was provided to me for free by the developers/publishers of the game. I would like to thank the developers/publishers for providing a free copy of the game to play on my stream.

In this Live Stream, Ready Set Indie Games plays Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX on PC.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX is a remake of the1980's classic sega mega system game Alex Kidd In Miracle World. Alex Kidd in Miracle World was one of those games that eluded me as a child, so I had heard of it, but never had a chance to actually play the game. So I do want to thank the developers and publisher of Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX for providing me with a free copy of the game to play on stream and to write this review.

The game starts off with Alex finishing his training and wanting to head home to get something to eat. However, on his way home he runs into villagers of Radaxian have been turned into stone and that the village has a new king Janken the Great who needless to say is not the rightful king. So Alex must go on this adventure to restore the villagers of Radaxian back to humans instead of stone and defeat Janken the Great.

As this was my first time playing Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX I played the game the way it was intended, and I must admit the game is pretty difficult at least it was for me. However, I enjoy a good challenge. I like the feature of being able to swap between the retro version of the game and the newer art style, and ironically it was switching between the two art styles that actually finally helped me get through a part of the game in which I was having a tough time. I also like being able to switch between the two styles because it gives a nod and shows respect to where the game has come from and where it has come to.

For those who want more of a casual play of the game, there is a way to turn on infinite lives in the game, so you don't die. So even if you're not the best at playing platformers or games like Alex Kidd you can still play the game and enjoy it. I played the game as intended because it was my first time playing the game and even though I had been told in the past the game was hard, I still wanted to play with the limited lives. Mainly because sometimes in games when you switch the play format you don't get to get achievements. In Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX, if you turn on the infinite lives it takes away some achievements, and sadly you are not able to turn it off or gain those achievements you start a new game.

When it came to the controls for the game, I can honestly say that it was really fluid and moved smoothly. Of course in the water portions of the game, it was a little harder, but I pretty much said that that was due to the water psychics in the game and not the controls themselves.

The game offers two other modes to play in addition to the game mode. There is Classic Mode and Boss Rush mode. It appears that these modes unlock after you have completed the game itself. As I have not completed the game yet, I will have to return and update this article on the two modes that are also offered.

Overall, I had a lot of fun with Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX and felt that the game was well made and am looking forward to finishing the game.
