I would have to say that the overall improvement makes the scenery seem more subtle than it used to. The panels are even darkened for the new version verse the bright tan used in the original classics. I prefer the color textures they went with in the remake over the classic textures.
All the little details are in order and in the right places. All the boxes are where they are meant to be, not just “close enough,” as sometimes happens in a remake. The boxes, enemies, obstacles, extra zones, and gems all seem to be in the exact location they are meant to. They have become less generous with the apple count, as the classic side was racking up apples at nearly twice the rate! Check out the video below to know more.
