    8mbit, eh? this just might work on a flash cart...
    doesn't take up too much space [​IMG]

    anyways, are there really 8mbit ROMs? i always thought the minimum size was 32mbit, no matter how little was stored on that ROM

    I like this flat-shaded 3d graphics. I think the GBA hardware is fast enough only for displaying this kinda graphics. Texture mapping needs a bit faster processor, like ARM9. (Which will be placed into NDS)

    ps.: ok, vrally-3 is an exception for example (it is optimized brutally i think)

    Uuuuhhh yessssss!!!!! The good old Archer Maclean Pool.
    Gosh! That was a fuckin wicked game for me.

    It was released in 1992 for the good old AMIGA by VERGIN GAMES.
    He did all the work on his own. Code, graphics and sounds.

    I hope that there is also the cool piano tune on the title screen.

    I think i'll give this game a try... I like pool games. To bad they didn't use more rendered graphics like Mario Pinball Land does, that'd make a huge improvement to graphics... but this will suffice if the gameplay/controls are quality.

    If Nintendo can re-release their old Classics then why not have an old pool game like this?
