    I played them with mouse controls like 20 years ago, when they were emulated for the first time, and it is one of the worst experiences I've ever had with videogames.

    Hotel Mario wasn't that bad, only boring.

    Still, not exactly devs fault. CDi was just a media player without any kind of accelerated graphics hardware, unlike pretty much every console until then. I think it was only capable of mosaic accelerated layers or something like that. It couldn't even accelerate a simple horizontal scroll.

    Concidering how bad the CDI was its amazing to think that Nintendo gave Novalogic permission to make a Super Mario World follow up for the CDI. I would have loved to see how bad Super Mario's Wacky World turned out to be had they finished making it.

    HA HA, WOW! I want to see PeanutButterGamer play THIS version! :D

    Hey, PBG from YouTube! If you're reading this, please make a video on this remastered edition and see what you think!

    Everyone else, here's a link to the blog post where I compiled a few of his videos together, as well as left my own opinions on a possible remake (which has now happened, ironically!): https://gbatemp.net/entry/the-legend-of-zelda-for-philips-cd-i-so-bad-its-eh-something.17221/

    This is great! I hope there will be better remakes of those old CD-i games; I also hope Nintendo allows this. Seeing those reappear (and improved greatly) would be AWESOME!

    You can play through both in about 1.5 hours each without too much trouble. You'll die a lot, but you restart on the same screen, and infinite lives helps a lot.
    Menu and interact are still the same button, and that will probably make you go through doors when you actually meant to open the menu to use the lantern or whatever. Would've liked to see that improved.
    Actually, the games aren't too bad now. The bosses are still way too easy, and telling the difference between solid and background objects is just as hard as ever, but the gameplay is actually good.
    Just be prepared to run around aimlessly for a while before figuring out where you need to go, and having to do frequent backtracking when you don't have the item required to progress in a certain area, unless you use a guide that is. It doesn't tell you where to go, but it does give you hints about the current area that'll usually tell you what you need to progress or tell you if you're missing anything in the area.

    If Nintendo didn’t partner with Philips we would never have this meme masterpiece
