    The game is Astro Blaster. What emu (or maybe GBA game?) had THAT game in it that you could play on your DS? Doesn't matter if it's DS or GBA mode.

    I have the game emu'd on the PC (MAME), but.....but......I can't seem to figure out which emu had it on the DS. I like that old game sometimes, I wanna play it again.

    Any help?

    You can always search for which console that game is available then get the emu for it.

    MarcaDS emulates old arcade games.

    Maybe that's where I played it......possibly on the DS or GBA it has a different name? I SWEAR I played it on the DS (or GBA)....must be MarcaDS.....hmm.

    You know what? MarcaDS does NOT play it. I just tried.....the file doesn't show up in the list.


    I KNOW I played this on the DS, maybe as a GBA game.....

    Maybe the name was different? NOT Megamania either, I know that one.

    Could it have been a Sega Emulator? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astro_Blaster Check this out and see if it the game, If so find a Sega Emulator.

    After all this time, I finally figured out how I played it on the DS. It's called Threshold, but it is essentially a clone of Astro Blaster. You can play it on the C64 and ColecoVision emulators. I played the Colecovision version.

    Geez....how long ago did I create this thread? Like almost a year ago?

    At least now I know I wasn't just imagining it. [​IMG]

    No, but I always see it when I search for Blaster Master (NES)
    Thats a pretty good game but little hard...
    (Still hoping that Nintendo releases it for VC)
