Remake of the old TG16 Bonk's Adventure into funky paper-and-cloth-cut-out 3D graphics pretty much keeps the exact 2D gameplay of the original, which it seems is a good thing--I never played the original but this is fun, I particularly like how you can bonk pretty much anything with your head, and how you can juggle things in midair with that big head bone of yours. I haven't been too fond of the boss battles so far (stand in room, try to dodge ridiculously fast/large boss, the jump in his head), and these are at least different in that so far there haven't been little sub-platforms in the boss rooms to jump on. Oh yeah, also you collect fruit for some reason now, and there's a stage select (maybe this is what the fruit does...) so you can pick right back up where you left off.
