Alex Kidd in Miracle World homebrew sequel punches its way to our hearts
The homebrew release features new levels, music, sprites and more
Last year, we covered the exciting news that a homebrew developer named Ian Wall was working on a sequel to Alex Kidd in Miracle World.
At the time, the game, which is technically a mod of the original game, was about 80 percent complete, but Wall has recently released the finished version to download for free!
Our friends at iRetroGamer just published the above video review of the game, which tells you all about the game, but if you want a quick gist of the game’s story, here it is:
It’s been 6 months since Alex defeated Janken the Great and reclaimed ‘The Crown’. Alex’s brother Egle has taken the throne and oversees the city of Radaxian. There is still unrest on the planet Aries however, as monsters still roam the land. Alex is still greatly concerned by the whereabouts of his missing father. Radaxian’s forces have been unable to locate King Thunder, so Alex sets off himself to find him. He retraces his steps and returns to the place where the trail was lost. Perhaps there was something he missed.
Wall originally produced 25 boxed copies of the game, and we’ve been told he’s contemplating making more (yes, please!!!). After you watch the video, you can go here for a free download of the game.
