This game quickly became one of the most iconic and beloved games for the console SMS. As Sega's answer to Nintendo's Mario, Alex Kidd became one of the early mascots for Sega, and this game showcased a unique blend of platforming action and quirky charm. In Alex Kidd in Miracle World, players control Alex Kidd as he embarks on a quest to rescue his brother, Prince Egle, from the evil Janken the Great. The game is set in the fictional world of Radaxian, offering a variety of environments for Alex to navigate, from lush forests and craggy mountains to underwater passages.

The gameplay combines traditional platforming elements with distinctive features. Alex Kidd has the ability to punch blocks and enemies, a primary mechanic for navigating levels and defeating foes. The game also includes vehicles like a motorcycle, helicopter, and speedboat, adding variety to the gameplay and allowing for unique level designs.

One of the unique aspects of Alex Kidd in Miracle World is the inclusion of the rock-paper-scissors battles against certain bosses. These battles require players to outguess their opponent in a game of Janken (rock-paper-scissors), adding a layer of strategy and unpredictability. The game is notable for its challenging difficulty level, with precise jumps, hidden traps, and tough enemies. Players need to be cautious and strategic in their approach to navigate through the levels successfully.

Game stands out as one of the best platformers available for the Sega Master System and cemented Alex Kidd's place as a beloved gaming character. Its unique blend of action, adventure, and whimsy has ensured its status as a standout title in the Sega Master System's library and an important part of video game history.
