Ever see a picture of a game and INSTANTLY knew you had to play and own it?
The first time I saw a screen shot of DoReMi, it had me charmed. It stars Milon, the same bloke from Milon's Secret Castle (NES). On a side note, he is also a bomber in Saturn Bomberman.
DoReMi Fantasy is a highly polished side-scrolling platformer. There are 7 worlds each with their own theme. In each world there's a minimum of 6 levels followed by a boss. An overhead map allows you to backtrack. The levels aren't particularly long, but they possess plenty of detail, quirky enemies, excellent backdrops, ace set pieces and satisfying gameplay moments.
This is one of the most sought after Super Famicom games today and tends to go for a pretty penny. However, if you love platformers as much as I do, especially charming ones, this is a must-have. I'd say it's one of the best SNES platformers ever, right up there with any of the Mario games, even. Just my humble opinion,
but everything about it, graphics, sound, gameplay, etc. are right on the mark.
DoReMi Fantasy is an excellent platformer every serious SNES fan should own. It's
a shame it didn't receive a domestic release, though in recent times did get a VC release. It's terrific, and as someone once put it perfectly……
"It's as charming as a video game can be"
