I remember playing this as a wee lad. My dad got a free copy with a computer magazine and I probably spent hundreds of hours playing it. Wasn't very good at it, the death music is very much familiar to me :D its a fun game even as I play it today, the double jump sometimes seems unreliable or you have to press jump again at exactly the right nanosecond.

Even after nearly two decades I still remember the highest password I unlocked in the olden days.
Level 15, KACACIBA

10/10 Those red bombs are proper ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s.

Ah... the old days. Putting the game disk in my old Playstation one, then later, my old (still working) Playstation 2. This is a game I remember fondly as one of the best platformers I've ever played.

To put it simply: This is a game I would play, time and again, just because it's fun. It's nice that I can have it on Steam because the old disk is now practically done for, after almost 2 decades of service!

While this is almost the exact same game on PC as it is on PSX, there's the different music (one track I do not recognize because it wasn't from the PSX version), the different controls that took some time getting used to (wish I could remap the controls to something more favorable), and lack of an options menu in the main menu also threw me off.

But there's the levels themselves, still beautiful in my eyes thanks to nostalgia. The fun of becoming a frog that belly-slams weird mushroom guys, a rhino that teaches those desert-bull things a lesson, even becoming a fire-breathing dragon that toasts flying shark-torpedos!

So don't like the recorded hours fool you, I've played this game in upwards of hundreds of hours, possibly even a thousand by now! If you love platformer games, you owe it to yourself to play this classic someday!

10/10: I will never regret playing this game.

P.S.: Have fun trying to find all the Heart Containers without guides or help.

A classic platformer from the PS1. My only main gripe about this game is that there are some serious leaps of faith that annoy me greatly. Other than that, the level design and the music is very lovable, or maybe it's just my nostalgia talking.
