    GBA one was a bit fiddly but enjoyable, should be easier to play on DS. It had mixed reviews when it first came out.

    It'd be nice if this had an English release, I've played the PC version to death (back in 97 or so).

    PC version (yoots tower) was fun but lacked something, I don't know what, but it made it a perfect game for handhelds; micromanagement, but not too much.
    GBA version was a buggy mess that kept crashing on my supercard and emulators, but seemed like the perfect version.
    Now it's out on the DS, I'm eager to test it out and see how they've handled the DS's touchscreen. Hopefully, not a huge fail like simcity DS (haven't tried 2 yet) with stupid minigames, useless bullshit ("sign here, mayor!", "I'm your advisor and I have great news for you! Build trees to reduce pollution! Wasn't that GREAT ADVICE?!") and snail-slow gameplay.

    Yup it was lovely, but even though I played quite a lot of it I still kinda don't feel like playing the J version.
