    This looks pretty decent, shame the title and boxart guarantee it will be a complete failure.

    Been out for ages, nice to see a dump of it. Decent enough game, nothing compared to Geo Wars though.

    Something to keep me occupied whilst I wait for a firmware update so I can play GTA. Never know, this might be a good game!

    Yeah, it's Geometry Wars with sprites instead of vector graphics. It's actually a pretty solid little game. It even has just a touch of the warping grid effect that was removed from Geometry Wars DS. It will be overshadowed by the release of GTA.....everyone concentrating on trying to get that to work, but it's a great game for an old-school dude like me. It has some nice looking super weapon power-ups and a few other gameplay changes to the Geometry Wars formula to make it interesting.

    Is anyone else noticing "Save file not located" errors upon loading on DSTTs with this game?

    If someone could test the Arm7 fix on it and post results, that would be great.

    WOW! this one is great. i didnt expect anything because of that ugly boxart.. it doesn't do the game any justice.

    it's on my shopping list.

    edit: i just ordered it [​IMG]

    It doesnt need the arm7 fix, read the FAQ and you'll find the answer, or you could just rename the rom XG_Blast.nds.

    This game wasn't on my radar and I'm not in a drought of games I need to play, so I asked if anyone who might be itching to play this game has better results than me, to post what they did.

    No harm, no foul, just asking is all.

    Thanks Tanas

    Edit: Keeping it XG_Blast.nds definitely did it, I must have missed the FAQ. Thanks again!
