I just beat the first one on PSN not too long ago.

I liked certain parts of it (the vehicle sections, character design, block puzzles), but I wasn't a big fan of how close you had to get to things to punch them, or trying to do any precision platforming. Running off the other side of a small platform, right into a one-hit-death was a pretty common occurence.

Some of the power ups were a nice way to counter the difficult platforming a bit.

SEGA Talk Podcast: Alex Kidd in Miracle World (1986)



Quote
Described as “SEGA’s answer to Mario”, Alex Kidd is a character who brings back fond memories for some, and frustrating memories for others.
We discuss the development history, the game’s connection to Dragon Ball and debate whether Alex Kidd was ever really a mascot.

Old 2018 interview with the developer of Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX!



Quote
On the new game HUD, I wanted to make the game have something interesting to offer for the player.
In Alex Kidd there are active objects that only work in certain parts of the game, but there are also active objects that you can use whenever you want.
This in the old system was rudimentary, whereupon we planned a completely new inventory for Alex.
