I thought it worked well. I wouldn't of minded seeing something similar on the Super Nintendo, back in the day.
I don't think it's bad, but for me some of those old NES games like Kid Icarus, Metroid, Dr Chaos, Phantom Fighter, etc. really took on a creepier ambience from those stark black backgrounds. It's kind of unique to the 8-bit era how those games would have those plain black backdrops to save memory, and inadvertantly picked up some sense of isolation. I dunno, maybe that's just me. The 3D classics Kid Icarus does seem pretty tastefully done, though, for what it is.
