A great homage to the gameplay style of Super Mario Bros. 2 without the obsession with verticality that game seemed to have. Stunning colorful graphics that blends the feel of a throwback project with the finesse of modern design. The gameplay is polished with just the right amount of difficulty where death is inevitable but you never feel like the goal is impossible. Would I have preferred a bit more checkpoints and respawning in the area right before the cliff I fell off of with 1 (one) less heart rather than instant death? Yes but I'm a baby who wants (and deserves, mind you) the world. Overall a really great game from a studio that puts out quality work time and time again.
