Alex Kidd: Remember him?
I remember buying this game for Sega Mater System way back in the day. Sure, it wasn't Super Mario Brothers, but it was a fair platforming game. Sega wanted a mascot and Alex Kidd was their first original face of the company. They later dropped him in favor of Sonic the Hedgehog.
I liked the game, but I still hate the design of Alex Kidd. He looked a like strange mutant monkey boy.
After watching some videos on this guy, I have to say that Alex Kidd is a bit of a prick. He literally goes around punching cars (which explode) and destroying airplanes. He later goes around randomly killing wildlife. Why is he punching cars?
