Yea looking forward to playing the classic Alex Kidd again! Also looking forward to the Shinobi on here as I don't think i've played that one and as a friend of mine keeps on saying, it's the best of the Shinobi's! Can't go far wrong with Yu Suzuki's Super Hang On either, bring it on!

I'm hoping you can save anywhere on this as I recall the Alex the Kidd boss fights being random rock, paper, scissor battles?

I believe Revenge is the best as well, though most people seems to love III more.

Since this has the Vintage Collection tag on it I expect there to be savestates. Never did get far in Alex Kidd...Got bored though I love the guy.

Yar. Once you knew what to put they stayed the same for other playthroughs.

I remember not losing a life till I got to the 2nd paperhead for the first time. Lost them all as I wasn't aware of what to put

First boss is Stone, Scissors if my memory serves me right.

Can anyone confirm whether this uses save states or not?

Yes, it has save states on all 3 games. It's very useful to save often in Alex Kidd in Miracle World. Mind you, I never play this game before and I had no clues how to play it lol but overall, it's a fun game.

I have a question regarding of Alex Kidd, how do I get a snack while on a Petit-copter? I cannot figure it out. I even look up on instruction pages under help but it doesn't tell you. So anyone?

I assume this means finish a level and grab the burger/riceball while in a copter. I could be wrong but that's the only way I can think of atm.

Edit: This is just going by memory of the olden days btw. Not bought this collection yet, gonna finish the Wonderboy one first methinks.

I did looked everywhere and shot everything in my sight with the helicopter....nothing. I'm at where I'm facing the french fries boss. I don't know if it has to be Japanese, Europe or USA version and I checked the caws for
Gamefaqs and find nothing about it.

Revenge of Shinobi alone, is worth the price of this collection, to me anyway. I had it on my Sega and I LOVED it.

They couldn't come up with a better picture of Alex Kidd to slap on the "box image" of this vintage collection? Jeez.

You are right. There is a level where you started out with a helicopter and by the end of the level, you will reach a rice ball and the achievement unlocked.

Please dont tell me its to do with the healthy eating brigade.

Thanks for confirmation man. Like I say I was just thinkin about this from a 15+ year old memory and wasn't sure if I was talking bollocks or not

Edit: @ Morbido It's a riceball in the Japanese version and a burger in the US/Europe versions

No idea why it replaced to rice ball instead of hamburger as it should be because I was playing anAmerican version and it had rice ball. Europe and NA has hamburger in original version of sega master system while Japan had rice ball but the thing is in xbla version, it's rice ball when you reach end of the level. I didn't know anything until I read it on Wikipedia because I never play Alex Kidd series when I was growing up.

I'm a bit disappointed by how Sega decided to put 3 games in pack which resulted in only a few achievements each.

See PS3 version of Alex Kidd as standalone game, it has the full 12 trophies list.

Completed Alex Kidd some months ago, was a reminder of the insane difficulty of this type of games
