    I love marble madness, that game was fun. I still cant get the arcade version in MAME to work well, but Ive played the Genesis NES and SMS ones like crazy [​IMG] Though the game seems a bit short to me.

    Anyway, this game isnt gonna be as bad as Rampage and Paperboy is it? I love Marble madness, its gonna suck so much to see it ruined.

    Anyone have any reviews on the game?

    Gee guys, you don´t know klax??? I must really, really be getting old...

    Klax is a game where colourfull tiles fall from columns. The player guides a platform which "catches" the tiles and drops them in a box. Pattern colours (ex. 3 same colours) makes the tiles dissapear and gives the player points, just like puzzle bubble...

    I can definately remember buying Marble Madness from Shelby's (NJ store in 80s/90s) for like 49.99$

    I just flashed this to see how it ran on hardware, beat level 4 and the game ended? WTF is this shit? DSI is laughing their fucking ass off right now, I believe they knew that the cart cost 4.99 to make thus guaranteeing when trashman aquired the game DSI would make a 9.98 profit.....and ONLY a 9.98 profit cause no one will buy this PURE SHIT. They had a chance to do some good ports and they raped us! Why? Oh well I guess its time to swap this out for some pong/breakout!

    klax is an excellent criminally "forgotten" game, i used to be completely addicted to it - more so than any of the other tetris knockoffs - on my Atari Lynx, back in the days!! it was a pretty simple game to get into, but if you tried messing with the warps (make huge "x" and stuff like that) then it would just be soooo intense...

    no one cares now but when it was released, especialy onthe lynx - the scaling and digital voices were so perfect, bells and whistles were just so spot-on. even though stuff like that is generally regarded as useless, it was done so perfectly (man the title screen music rocked too) that the game just felt like it was a labor of love by the dev's...

    don't know how it's survived the port, but well worth a look.
