    I don't like this game, there just isn't a thrill.
    Unlike Tetris [​IMG].

    Can we have Final Fantasy 3 first? [​IMG] Please? *wishes she was kidding*

    A certain amount of the delay time's due to having to do the translations, which makes sense but doesn't stop it from being annoying (especially for the UK where the games are already in our language).

    As for Actionloop I'm not sure about this one. I'm normally a sucker for mindless puzzle games but I played a similar game on PC (Zool?) for about 5 mins and got bored with it. Maybe it's better on a handheld?

    Always on the move...
    Couldn't just keep the old name -magnetica- ? BTW, does the "backup rom" come with Ninty's free rumble pack? [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Sounds fair since the game RRP is 30 € [​IMG]
    Edit: It's been almost a year since it's been released in Japan (March 2nd 2k6) What was the hold on ? Translating a few scripts ? [​IMG]

    I thought the same thing. It's just completely mindless and not very fun. Then I sat down and played it for an hour for some reason (I guess I wanted something completely mindless and not fun to do). Let me tell you something, this game gets really hard in a hurry. It is frantic and quite enjoyable. Play it again and give it a chance. You won't be disappointed.

    I can guess this game is like Zuma. If it is then I will like this one.

    i don't know why this is called actionloop...why don't they just call it puzzloop? then you get the name recognition from people who have played the original arcade game (like myself)... not to mention, puzzloop is just a catchier name than "actionloop". rawr. i'm not drunk.

    I didn't bother to try magnetica, but I found this really fun. It's a nice alternative to something like puzzle bobble.

    Is the Rumble Pack included is a SLOT-2 DS Lite sized ? or just like the Metroid Pinball Rumble Pack ?

    EDIT

    I just got the information from DS-Man : it's a GBA Phat Rumble cartrige just like Metroid Pinball Rumble Pack
