Originally developed in 1987 The Great Giana Sisters was a platform adventure game that was more than a little similar to Super Mario. In fact it was always rumoured that Nintendo tryed to sue the developer, however that was just speculation.

I remember playing the original on the Commadore 64 and having loads of fun which is why when I saw it in the app store it was a no brainer to download it and give it another shot.


On mobile device it works well because it is so simple, there are only 4 buttons so you go left and right and add to that jump and shoot. The graphics have all been updated but the game remains the same simple fun it always was.




It’s also available on Apple Tv but the controls are terrible for any game on that so don’t bother, just get the mobile version.


Giana Sisters is a trip down memory lane that deserves a 4 out of 5
