"Fun 2D platformer."
SmartBall is a very fun platformer, but it isn't perfect, because obviously the technology wasn't that great back then. Anyways if you want to, you could give it a try. It depends on what genre of games you like. The story begins in a mystical land called Kyliria, where peace and happiness has filled the land for as long as anyone can remember. The King, Geoffrey, is about to retire and pass the crown to his heir, Prince Jerry. Jerry has just married his wife, Wendy, and is ready to become king. But Tom, Jerry's jealous brother, has hired the help of the Bad Wizard, who cast a terrible curse upon Jerry. They stole Wendy away, and turned Jerry into a smart ball. Now he must go to the Bad Wizard's castle, defeat the Bad Wizard, return to normal, and retrieve Princess Wendy. There are many, many critters that try and stop you from getting to the castle, but you have a lot of different moves, items you can use, and can also change your shape, to help you along the way. There are 2 stage types, the first is just a normal level, the second is a boss level. They alternate so it's easy to tell which one a level is. There are 8 levels, with 2 stages, the normal level and the boss level. You eventually will end up in the castle. Anyways, this game is pretty fun, and you can keep playing to find each and every little secret, which makes for quite a bit of replay value. I think it's pretty much worth buying, if you like platforming games. But it's up for you to decide. But I would, so maybe you might want to buy SmartBall too!
