A average hack with a little decay in the second half

Reviewed By: bogaabogaa on 04 Aug 2017

This hack shines in stage one and two. There been a lot of changes to the level layout and the Graphical changes go through the whole game. There went a lot of creativity to make new sprites and blocks.

In the beginning, I was hoping it could be a hack that futures a less punishing experience then the original was but the difficulty rises in the second part to the normal one and goes a bit higher then that.

I am not a fan of the plan art style here and started to get disappointed from Frankenstein stage on upwards. The stages are very similar/mostly the same as in the original and the Art style went from ok to bad. No new challenge.

I would had trouble to recommend this hack to someone specific. It is a bit plain and does not shine in something that is great about it but it is also not bad.

Sure with a bit more effort in level design I would change my mind.
