    Was it a good N64 game?
    Also is this a port or a sequel?

    ...Are you serious? They updated/modernized the Great Giana Sisters and now they're...what? Oh man, I...really want to try this out :wtf:
    This is a pleasant surprise.


    It's like a Mario ripoff, right? So I should be expecting something like New SMB?






    why am i so excited over this game? It's not Tokyo Beat Down :I

    It was a C64 (Commodore 64) game, and it looks to me like either a sequel or a remake.

    Wasn't this the Mario Bros clone with female characters?

    FINALLY!!!! I gotta find this asap
    When I was a kid I thought this was actually a Mario game but where you play as the Princess and her Sister, basically as a kid I though Super Princess Peach existed.

    Didn't Nintendo give legal action against the creators of this?

    That was my reaction. Wha? WHAAAA?

    It's a twenty-year old game famous primarily for being shut down via lawsuit by Nintendo before it could really sell at all because it was such an obvious copy of Mario Bros. And now... they made a DS version? And Nintendo gave them a license to do this?

    Geez. If this had come out a few days ago on April 1 I wouldn't have believed it.



    ...so is it any good?

    Wow, it's pretty fun and plays (surprise!) like SMB [​IMG]

    (And yes, Ruri, the irony is particularly thick here.)

    It seems like a fairly solid, if so far easy, platform game. The reason Nintendo allowed this game is because it actually has very little in common with the C64/Amiga game. Some of the music is the same, and the style is similar but the levels are all new. That was Nintendo's sticking point years ago. It wasn't that Giana Sisters was a Mario clone it was that the level layouts were similar if not copied outright.

    This is great, it's most likely going to end up getting 3's and 4's tops, but it's the perfect game for me I like simple and easy games on my handhelds.
    Works on my AceKard 2 perfectly from what i can tell.
