In the Alex Kidd series, you could enter buildings and explore non-linear levels. They were almost like side-scrolling sandbox games.



Which Alex Kidd games were you playing? They're ALL linear.

Enchanted Castle is not really an Alex Kidd game, it was a Japanese girls game called "Anmitsu Hime" with modified sprites for the overseas versions.


You're thinking of Alex Kidd in High Tech World. Enchanted Castle was an Alex Kidd game from the start.
