description

Nightmare Boy is a Metroidvania-style, action/adventure 2D game.
It takes place in a diverse world, full of enemies from your worst Nightmares!
In your quest to save the Noctum from a self-proclaimed ruler, you’ll meet weird and unique friends and foes. But tread carefully when talking or interacting with NPCs: Quirky characters and their reactions can have game-changing consequences. Fast reflexes and a taste for exploration are key if you intend to collect rare items, vanquish enemies, and eventually face your deepest fears.

This story takes place in Donorok, in the state of Noctum. After the King of Noctum, Aster, disappears, chaos rules over the world. The relationships between Monsters, Mongos, and Dreamers are completely unstable, and Donorok – the land so heavily affected by the chaos – slowly absorbs terrain from the surrounding regions.

Balder has taken over and has ordered the monsters to retain any child who falls into the Nightmare. The key to continuing his rule is with the Nightmare Boy, Billy.

A colorful palette and an aesthetic straight out of your worst Nightmare! Main character animations are made up of over 500 drawings. Each level has its own unique enemies and atmosphere.

Fun Updated Remaster for Sega Fans
Challenging updated platformer with great graphics. I had difficulty at first getting used to the control style. Not complaining though. When I first started playing I couldn't get past the first level without having to restart the stage endless times. After 'breaking it in' I was able to advance further. To me, this is great, as you have a limited amount of lives and a CHALLENGE. Which seems to be the problem, in my opinion, with most games today. You continue as many times as you want so you really never fail, leaving out the mastery.
It wasn't until about the 5th level or so that I discovered by hitting random buttons on my controller that you could switch right back to the graphical style of the original game, which I thought was a cool touch. Then back to the modern style so you can see the graphical changes that were made. If you want your old Alex Kidd with modern graphics then definitely pick this up for a nostalgic flashback.

What I wanted in 1989
I bought my first Master System in 1989 with Alex Kidd in Miracle World built in. Myself and friends played it endlessly and this new version is so faithful to the original ..... but with infinitely better controls! A must have for nostalgic Sega fans.

Goog retro
A good remaster, with classic and updated graphics, with good performance at 60fps on the switch.
