Cult Classic: Despite Nintendo stomping the original computer versions in the US, the series enjoys a loyal fanbase.
Growing the Beard: Twisted Dreams seems to be aiming for this. For one, it's not a simple run-and-jump Mario clone like it was in the past. Secondly, the level design and the music are both a far cry from the chipper, cute themes players were accustomed to in the previous titles.
Polished Port: Giana Sisters: Special Edition is a fanmade revamp of the originally bare bones Amiga port. The graphics have been almost completely redone from scratch based on the DS game including unique enemies and much smoother animations, a fleshed out color palette using new background tiles and making use of all 265 colors from the system, the music has been upgraded to the Amiga's higher quality along with new sound effects, and the intro from the DS game has been ported.
