It's great from a collector's standpoint, but unless they seriously improve the number/structure of the levels it'll suffer the same fate as the original, which could be completed in under an hour.
Suffer the same fate as the original? Dude, the NES Duck Tales is widely considered one of the best games on the NES and sold well enough to receive a sequel. All NES games, with the exception of RPGs like Dragon Quest, were about an hour long. Short games are awesome.
Super Mario games and other in under an hour? You'd have to take every shortcut available and do a speed run to manage that. Just because Duktales was TOO FUCKING SHORT doesn't mean all platform games from that era were.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
