    LOLz, from the title, I thought this was gonna be some lame fishing game, woooooo!! NEW PUZZLE GAME!!

    (I haven't even watched the video yet, I just love puzzle games)


    edit: NOT working on my R4 with 1.18 firmware, and yes, it's real [​IMG]


    edit 2: It WORKS after arm7 patching, I used Cooking Mama (U) as the donor ROM.


    I've only played a few games and lost, but I like it, the way the blocks fall (and rise I guess) is interesting, I am gonna be hooked.

    Feels like Meteos. I may have to give this a try.

    Impressions anyone?

    I only played briefly, but I didn't think much of it.

    Rows of randomly colored blocks rise up on the right screen. By connecting six or more, you send them over to the left side where they fall down in a select pattern. You gain points if series of blocks on that screen end up connecting.

    It sounds like an interesting puzzle concept and a way to utilize both screens and require dual focus, but it doesn't seem to work so great in practice. The blocks are random, rising at a slow pace, and chances of joining together the required number are low. You can eliminate blocks in combos of two or more to clear them out of the way, say like removing green and orange blocks to focus on the purple.

    But it's actually really boring. You sit there waiting for enough to arrive onscreen so that you can do something with them, then you just get stuck with inferior small groups, and the gameplay all goes down the drain. The left screen will eventually become as disorganized as the right side, and it's hard to find a point to this game.

    If you had some kind of organization _control_ over the blocks a'la Meteos, they might be on to something. But as is, my patience simply wore out in very little time.

    Now there is a surprise

    Try the arm7 fix as it works for sonic Cronicles which also appears to be having problems on the "very" old R4 [​IMG]
