    I was wondering the same thing. I'll have to try this one out, I guess.
    EDIT: Yes! It's very similar [​IMG] (From what I can see after just entering the first level)

    No its a sequel to the GBA King of Swing game. Its more of a puzzle game. I loved the Japanese game to bits but sadly the USA one won't work on my M3.

    It's not a 3D game but both screens are used, easily playable.
    Spend 8 hours of playing this game on a flight from LAX to Brussels

    Played it a bit more, it has a lot more stuff than the DKC games for SNES but the basics are the same, get to the goal and pick up the KONG blocks, DK coins, banana coins, etc.

    Yeah tried everything, its on the m3 wiki says "doesn't work on some M3 CF".

    Its ok as the Japanese version works but it would've been nice to know what is going on. Must get a new flashcard one day.

    The first levels were fun though.

    NO! It isn't!

    This game, while good looking, gives my hands a hard time to play it.
    I just wish they would use the classical control scheme instead of using L/R for all the stuff.

    That's Nintendo, ruining another SNES classic for you! [​IMG]

    Absolutely boring game... No fun at all. DKC on SNES had better graphisms...

    OK, here's a funny one. I have a Supercard SD (slot 2 GBA device) booted with Datel Max Media Player.
    With this game sometimes the screens are switched i.e. things are falling from the top of the touch screen to the bottom, then onto the top screen, and I'm controlling DK on the bottom of the TOP screen! This is weird. Anyone else had this problem? Is it known? I can take a picture or video if anyone wants proof of this weird behaviour. Also the top and bottom screens switch over an unusual amount during dialogs which struck me as weird, then I got into the banana catching and this screen swap started happening in-game.
