get to castle save princess very simple and true and this is where this game shines is its simplicity anybody young or old can understand it and play it
Sound- Simple tunes that are truly catchy and iconic everyone knows level 1-1's music when it starts up and can automatically identify with it
Difficulty- 7/10 for beginners and for veterans of the genre 3/10 after a few rounds with this game you can beat it in under and hour with few lives lost
Overall- Play it but dont spend over 5 dollars doing so its a classic game in its own right but has really not much replay value sequels in the series beat this in the ground but for the old school head this is a trip down memory lane
