User Review Information
Really, really goodReviewed By: HPJ on 02 Sep 2019
This is genuinely impressive, I wasn’t expecting something of this calibre. The game is excellently designed, and it’s evident that an obscene amount of effort was put into making this as good as possible. My only two complaints are that the controls are a tad bit fast and slippy and that the graphics are VERY grid-aligned, so the background tiles look a bit ameteurish. that doesn’t mean that the graphics are bad, everything is well defined and drawn, and the sublime animation on Nova’s tail is testament to that.
On top of this great game experience (that I will admit, I haven’t fully played) is the genuinely immense amount of extra content, including a dr mario clone with more settings and modes than I thought imaginable.
Overall, this is very good, so play it.

|Kinda fun, but the graphics are bogus and the acceleration makes no sense.||Marcos Moutta||06 Oct 2019||1405||No|
