I played this game in late 80s as a kid. It's more than just a title. Remastered, it's exactly the flashback in the core.

a classic reworked from the good old days with 2 selectable modes (classic - the original and a modern take with tutorials & some QoL improvements). kinda slow gameplay compared to today's platformers, but once a fan, always a fan. ;)
