Fun platformer game
In the style of Mario Bros and Crash Bandicoot, a refreshing game to find on bigfish. It won't drive you crazy to complete it, you should be able to reach the last level in an intense day or two of playing. This game is not perfect, and has a few bugs - I got trapped inside walls once and had to lose a life to get back to normal - but the fun factor is way up there for anyone looking for a Mario-style game in the here and now, and I loved the island theme behind the game.
This game actually caused me to look up others of the same type on here, and a few gems were found at http://www.bigfishgames.com/download-games/genres/23/platformer.html (that link is not currently in the genre list as I type this).
I'll be playing this one again to hit all those "secret areas" I didn't find the first time through.

Fun For An Hour
This is a platform game similar to Supercow and Turtle Odyssey but nowhere near as good.
Visually looks good and the background music is OK.
Basic storyline - find amulet parts, rescue sister, build retirement home on the island.
At time difficult to control with your mouse.
Annoying babble of the penguin (giving instructions) and your cheerleader.
Some levels very difficult to complete all aspects (fish difficult to "kill") or you lose a lot of lives trying.
if you are going to buy one of this type of game Supercow or Turtle Odyssey far better value,

Fun, but not the best
It was a pretty fun game, but not the best. I prefer platform games like Supercow, but this is also pretty good. The levels can get pretty long, when you get far. And when in the beginning, you can finish alot pretty quickly.

Fun for the Family
This game was a great deal of fun. Just wish they would make an Alex Gordon 2. I have enjoyed it immensely, playing it over and over and my grandchildren love it. We have all finished it but keep going back to it. If anyone knows of a game that is similar to this one please let me know.

Supercow's Little Cousin
In what I viewed as an attempt to try and copy the success of Supercow, Alex Gordon by Alwar Games fails to step up to the plate.
Helpful tips before and during levels.
Graphics were cheesy in some places.
At most times I struggled to have fun with the game.
Simple, easy levels
I struggled to understand WHY you lost a heart every time you were hit! It should have been half a heart.
I didn't get the addition of the island.
The annoying penguin's stupid little voice IRRITATED the life out of me!!
Well, I'm certainly not going back to this again. Not recommended.

If you want a break from super challenging games, this one will do the trick. Reminded me alot of Mario, Crash and Sonic from days gone by. While fun, the "jabbering" penguin can get a bit obnoxious but I still had fun and loved this game. Great for kids, moms and dads. Good clean fun.
