It is my favorite game to play when I just want to move through the game. I played the original one a lot when I was younger.
The only problem with the original is that when you die, you take your heart with you, it doesn't return. That's what I hate about it. Anyways, my favorite is the sequel to this game. I also think that this was a great game for me to grow up with, it's different than the first one but it's pretty funny. I also love it for the same reason that I love "Jumping Jack" (the original) from the Gameboy, because they are both about moving and the only way you can do it in the original game is by taking what's not yours.
"Frenzy" has the same thing that you steal from the other people, but instead of taking what's not yours, it's the ones that are taking something that they want or want something and you have to run to get it. The original game is sort of funny in the way that it will make you feel sorry for youself or the other people that you see in the other rooms, and then will make you play the game by running and getting all the things you need. I like the sequel even more, it's more about running and taking what's not yours.
Also, I think that's why I like the old ones the best. Anyways, I also think that Shadow is fun to play but it is also just repetitive. I like to do that one more times then just switch out. I also think it'd be cool to play the sequel on the ropeflow exercises.
