    Great game... Works for M3 SD E31 with settings of 4xDMA, Soft Reset and Force R/W, and no trim... (its only 64mbit)

    For those who are lost with the options (like me, but I found out):
    - Sound set: New, NES (the new sound set is... weird - NES FTW.)
    - Lives: 1-6
    - Gallery... of Tingle (lol - unlock pics by advancing thru game)

    lol, I nearly maxed the score in 1P game... but I died at phase 28 with 603000... [​IMG] (but I didn't discover the lives set after my run... so I was stuck with default 3...)

    But a nice addition, save points... so if you quit the game, then you can resume onto that phase number.

    Was playing this all last night, excellent release! Wouldnt it be great if Nintendo gave away games like these on VC or at DS stations?

    I've been waiting for this game forever! Got it last night - it's EXCELLENT. Might even replace the NES Balloon fight which was a permanent resident on my GBA Flash cart.

    Works on DS-X w/ latest fw.

    I take it that this game has been dumped???

    What does the "XXXX" mean? Is the game numberless for the moment, or is it only a demo?

    Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    XXXX means its not numbered, only NDS dumps of retail games get numbered. Games like this and Game & Watch were given away in Club Nintendo.

    Mode A is a Joust clone basically. or was that one of the modes in the original baloon fight? Only played it a bit but only remember the travel along avoiding stuff mode.

    this reminds me is Tingle RPG coming out in English?
    cause the art style interests me, but I'm fearing that the game will only be a JPN release [​IMG]

    According with EGM #213, Tingle RPG will come out by the end of the year. Hope it's true!

    I have to commend Caravan on dumping this.
    When games like these that are not sold to retail, or the type of stuff that's horded by collectors are dumped, it makes me happy that there are awesome people who go to the trouble of aquiring and dumping it.
