As part of IGN's Summer of Gaming event, Merge Games has revealed that it is preparing to release a slick remake of Sega Master System classic Alex Kidd in Miracle World.
Originally released in 1987, the block-punching platformer is famously known as the game that came pre-loaded with the Master System for many years, before later being replaced by Sonic the Hedgehog. Players guide young Alex Kidd, (not "Alex the Kid" as you'll hear time and again), through the land of Radaxian to rescue its royalty from Janken the Great.
Alex runs, jumps, leaps, and swims his way through a series of colourful stages, even taking to a motorbike and gyro-copter on occasion. Renown for its repetitive earworm of a theme tune, as well as its "JanKenPon" (or "Rock, Paper, Scissors") boss battles, Alex Kidd in Miracle World is indelibly etched into Sega-owning fans of a certain age.
