But Great Giana sisters is OK.
I love platform games, but i really couldnt disagree with this any-less than absolutely!
I love platformers like NZS, Rainbow Islands, Robocod and more.... Mario to me is frankly horrible (there will always be people with whom it doesnt sit well) and Giana-Sisters, by the same token, a horrible ugly clone.
That's my opinion however, but to be -so- dismissive of Amiga platforms by the token of 'mario is better' really cracks me up.
Some of use actually prefer using up-to-jump by the way
For me, Dastardly has already provided a list of the cream-of-the-crop.
