    It had to be said.

    Mario rip-off or not, it's a great game.

    I wouldn't say it's fantastic, but I would say it's pretty damn good. I put it as one of the "Greatest DS game never known".

    Sure is fantastic. I didn't give it the time of day 'til I went on a dl spree, and found out what I had been missing. Sure makes up for the easiness in NSMB.

    It's easy and simple, but yet charming and classic. In some ways, I like it better than NSMB. It's longer anyways. [​IMG] I'd recommend it to any platform nut like myself. [​IMG]

    In some ways -- certainly not all -- this game reminds me of Warioland 4 on the GBA, which is also a damn fine game.

    Some trickier movements could have been added like the dash -> high jump, the extra (bubble or other specials) are are lame that's all for the critics but i already likes it, reminds me the amiga old days by its simplicity. I expected a little more madness.

    At first I was disappointed that it wasn't the Amiga original levels/graphics, but then I played it and couldn't put it down.

    I found it the other way around, I thought that Giana Sisters was way to easy, still a good game though.

    I think Mario Bros ripoffs are poor excuses for games, y'know, since we're rattling off what we think... :\ [​IMG]

    I saw a video and it looked like a very strange and easy game.
