View full history
Alex Kidd travels to the mystical Planet Paperrock, where he hears word that his long-lost father King Thor is still alive. Along the way, Alex must use his karate skills, as well as his Scissors-Paper-Rock techniques, to vanquish his enemies on his way to the titular Enchanted Castle.
Gameplay consists of basic platforming: running, jumping, collecting coins, etc. However, Alex uses a punch attack instead of the more traditional way of destroying enemies, the head stomp.
At the end of most levels, Alex must compete in a game of Scissors-Paper-Rock with that level's boss. If he wins, the level is completed and the player moves on. If Alex loses, the player loses a life and must start the level again.
Along the way, Alex encounters different shops where he can gamble in Scissors-Paper-Rock games to win various items that can help him on his quest.
- Magic Ring: Shoots fireball
- Pogo stick: Allows Alex to jump extra high
- Motorbike: Run over enemies in Alex' path
- Cane: Alex can levitate
- Helicopter: Alex can fly and shoot missiles
- Cape: Invincibility
- Necklace: Read opponents' mind during Scissors-Paper-Rock match
