I've never owned the original of this game and I've
only ever played it via Gamebase 64.
Superkid in Space is a cool little arcade platformer
with clean graphics and some simple tunes. Surprisingly

and reminds me of the early days of budget releases from
Mastertronic and Codemasters - even the loading screen
gives it that eighties budget release feeling.
Neil: This game is
graphically similar to the original Superkid game, but

scattered about and returned to the spaceship. It seemed
to do the job.
Earth is safe!

me from dying! I also used a level-skip :-)
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once the sixth level is complete, you get to see your
ship take off. You then have to land your craft on the
landing pad on Earth to get your bonus. The
screen then flicks over to the ending screen that shows Superkid smiling away, and the aliens giving it the: "Gwwww...
why, you!". This is accompanied by some ending text that
reads: "WELCOME HOME OUR EARTH HERO," and an ending
