It's the year 2009, for goodness sake, in the decade of the shiny bald space marine(tm)! But, developer WayForward Technologies had to go ahead and remake an obscure (in the UK at least) 1989 NES game - resulting in this, a 2D adventure that's not quite a modern classic, but certainly up there with the best of this generation. Oh well."
