You might have missed the announcement back in April that the legendary Alex Kidd would be making a comeback in the form of Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX, which is available to purchase on Xbox as of today.

The game is a remake of the 1986 SEGA Master System title of the same name, but features new HD graphics, gameplay improvements and animations, and brand new levels which expand the lore and story behind Alex Kidd.

The standard price for this one is £14.99 / $19.99, but anyone can get a 10% discount on it via the Microsoft Store for the next couple of weeks. Sadly, our sister sites Nintendo Life and Push Square weren't too keen on it in their reviews, scoring it a 5/10 (average) and 4/10 (poor) respectively, so consider giving those a read before buying.

Get ready for none-stop boss action in Boss Rush mode! Take on the legendary Gooseka, Chokkina, Parplin and Janken the Great, in a nonstop boss fight! 

Jump straight back into 8-bit nostalgia with Retro Mode. At any point during game play switch between the enhanced graphics and a recreation of the original art style!
