    I remember years ago I borrowed my friends GBA SP and he had one game that I can't remember the title of..

    There was like an eagle eye view of a maze, and you controlled a spinning bar.

    You had to navigate through the maze, not touching the sides, the bar constantly spinning around and you collect various items that do different things to the bar (make it spin in the opposite direction, make it smaller, larger, etc)...

    Just wondered if anyone knew the title as I wouldnt mind picking it up again!

    TIA

    Should be pretty low...

    If I remember correctly, it was one of the first GBA games, at least in Europe...

    wow, this is a neat game i've already wasted 30 minutes playing it. does anybody know the name of some games or a thread that lists games similar to this? it seems a lot of times "mini-game" type games are in japanese so it's kind of hard to browse through lookin for them..

    Or even the gamecube version.

    I wish there was a version for the Wii or DS.

    0004 - Kuru Kuru Kururin (J)
    0048 - Kuru Kuru Kururin (E)
    0847 - Kururin Paradise (J)
    And the Gamecube has Kururin Squash (J)

    Great series. Shame it never made it to the US or get continued in Europe.

    There's plenty of puzzle games on the GBA but it's hard to think of one similar to this. Closest I can think of "Beyblade: Ultimate Blader Jam", which if you skip the stupid storyline is actually a clone of Marble Madness (if you're old enough to remember it [​IMG] ). Navigate the "ball" to the end of the 3D maze before the timer runs out without falling off.
    (Edit: looks like Marble Madness was actually released too. And totally forgot Super Monkey Ball.)

    In Japanese, "Turbo Turtle Adventure" involved rolling the turtle around a maze of some sort, I haven't played it but might be worth looking at.
