I definitely don't like it.
I want to say some things. I understand that you have worked so much on this (or maybe not) and you have to get money with the mochiads thing. But seriously, I think this Shift edition has ruined the classic game.
I saw that you named it AltSHIFT, so is possible (and I desire) that you will do some day Shift 5, concluding with the story of [SPOILER]the kidnapped family and the evil professor, who wasn't beaten after all, he run away again and again.[/SPOILER]
But, I just... want to tell you, that I think is a horrible idea to make that improved graphics. I don't minuspreciate your work, I assure you I don't want that but...
...this edition breaks up with the style of the previous games, which was simply perfect, black and white, simple gameplay, was... epic. That simplicity made it so awesome.
Man, It's only my opinion, you know what are you doing, but I think you have destroyed the magic and the charming of the series. I will continue following your works but I'll also wait you for some day publishing Shift 5.
