  • Most of the platforming is top-shelf stuff, and the few issues with the controls notwithstanding, I had a great time with the game. Fifteen dollars is a bit high, though, for the amount of pleasure most folks will likely mine from the experience.

  • PC Gamer

    The game is great fun, but there's simply not enough content here for $15.

  • LEVEL (Czech Republic)

    Old school playability, sweet graphics on one hand, and a way too short lifespan on the other. Retro is maybe on, but there are a lot of better titles to try. [Issue#192]

  • Rocket Knight requires perseverance and perfectionism, but offers nothing in return.
