    This has been out for about 3 days now, but its great to see it posted on gbatemp scene [​IMG] this game is kinda different to the other mindscape gameshow games. It follows close to the show, doesnt utilize voices which makes the gameplay more better. Overall i say it is a good game

    When I first realised it was out, I had a feeling Mindscape were behind it, as they also made the DS version of Des chiffres et des lettres (Countdown's parent show from France).

    I wish they could've used the proper music for the clock though, and accurately weighted the letters.

    Not to mention the un-fairness of the CPU being crap at first glance and then they get a near impossible conundrum.
    Yeah the music could of been better but overall it was alright. Mindscape at least attempted to make it better than the goldenballs game they released.

    I'm hopeful that there could be a hack to replace the clock's music, though it would need to replace the sound for 30 seconds, 60 seconds and untimed.

    I hope so too, maybe if we used DSLazy and hacked it apart we could find the music track and replace it

    I did grab an mp3 of the normal clock music, but it'd need some modification for the 60s and untimed modes.

    Same thought as me (although the last bit starts at T-8 seconds). Might need some treatment so it doesn't seem to skip when it loops.

    From what I've tried, you can't actually have a proper 15-round multiplayer game? Just separate rounds of different games.

    It's not our fault that it took the dumpers 2+ days to grab the game (assuming that is what you're saying).

    Once the letters are selected and the clock starts, you tap to letter tiles one by one, and the word you declare at the end of the round is on the second line.

    If you make a mistake, you can drag the letters around too, without starting again.

    yes, you are correct, played it last night in multiplayer, we was not able to play the full 15 round game, but it was still quite enjoyable playing the seperate rounds, apart from the conundrums, damn, they're tough
