Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams review | Thunderbolt

Always the bridesmaids, the history of the Giana Sisters is a story of the underdog. The Commodore 64 original could be credited as little more than a stilted Super Mario Bros. clone, a derivative take on the flavor of the week, shelved by lawsuits from Nintendo. It was that derivative; it truly was Mario Bros. in drag. And despite all of the odds against it the franchise has held a fanbase who grew up Commodore and have now brought about an unlikely revival through a Kickstarter campaign earlier this year.

[Calvin Kemph, Thunderbolt] (Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, PC) 7/10
