    Wow, I thought there wouldn't be anymore (U) releases for the GBA, I assumed that all that was left was like French GBA videos and stuff.

    So....where's the DS release for the US version of Spidey 3? The stores already have it.....

    Sure, it may suck with the touchscreen controls and all, but you know....

    its strange that games comes out for gba then and even this sort of good games (or should i say sticky [​IMG] )
    Does this mean that gbatemp notifies if game is released or when it is dumped?

    This is fairly enjoyable, much better than the DS version. It seems to be a bit of a trend to have the GBA version of a licensed game to be better than the DS one. (TMNT, Spongbob krusty Crab and so on).

    Why won't they let the GBA die? Why won't they just let it die...

    As long as there are good games ? Why always supporting the latest hardware ??? Nonsens.

    Does seem nonsense, I mean they could use the GBA game and then release them on mobiles or even those TV plug in games, but whatever.

    Dunno why people want the GBA to die, what difference would it be to them if people still made games for it? As for this game I'm still enjoying it, its a bit easy but its good for a retro game lover like me.

    it can't die, there's a slot 2 slot on the ds. Unless you want the slot flashcards to be useless that is.

    This game reminds me of the GBC Spidermans, which is great. [​IMG]

    I like the game, in process of beating it but it doesnt seem very long or difficult. I'm having a good time nonetheless. Spidey FTW.

    Globally speaking, the Famicom/NES and original Game Boy lasted a decade for compatible licensed game releases. But the SNES, Genesis, and even PSone just barely missed it.

    But... The actual reason for the GBA's decline in that regard is due to lack of Japanese developer support. Do notice the schedule there all-but vanished long before it has elsewhere.

    I agree with you there, those two games were brilliant and I was very disappointed with the previous Spider-Man titles on GBA as they were by the same developer but this one is pretty good, good animation, nice varied levels and great gameplay. It is very easy but thats not always a bad thing sometimes you just want to play a game without getting frustrated. For a game mainly aimed at kids its pretty good.

    Death of the GBA would probably mean less new retro style games like this and TMNT, perhaps some will appear on VC and DS but on the developers seem to want to do awful looking 3D on a 2D game and shoe in touch screen controls that worsens a game not better it. Some developers can do it well but most of them don't.

    You can't download games here man, this is only a listing of the releases.

    You should have read the rules when signing up for the site.
