    Lagman was also ..." King of Mann and the Isles between 1103 and 1104. One of the four Houses of The Buchan School in the Isle of Man is named in memory of Lagman.

    He appears to be a son of King Godred Crovan. He got the throne only after the Norwegian kings Magnus Barefoot and Sigurd Jorsalfar had exited, having caused interruption in successions in Orkneys and in Mann at least. Apparently Lagman was succeeded by one of his brothers, Harald."

    Just a piece of useless information...as quoted from Wiki...

    Now with all those similar type of Wiiware games that are being released, it seems absurd seeing a game like this being over 4 GB! No way I'm ever going to download 4 GB for a game that's basically a Flash game!

    fun(??) fact: this was originally going to be a version of taito's puzzle game "pop'n pop", but the developers lost the license. so it doesn't have taito characters anymore, but it probably still plays the same. and pop'n pop is pretty great, so unless they've buggered this version up with terrible wiimote controls, its still a decent puzzle game. even if it could have been on wiiware.

    This game sucks, i'd rather like to have GOOD puzzle games for Wii.

    I'd like to have a Wii version of Qix

    lol, well, it's not really used.. even i, as a swede has NEVER used it.. directly back-translated it would be "Law-man" and that sounds just as silly in english as in swedish [​IMG]

    on topic: Anyone knows how "large" this game is when scrubbed?

    Well the American versions is 164.66MB scrubbed, should be something around that for this one.

    Ok, rather small, but still expected a smaller size for this [​IMG]
    I'm sure they could've optimized it for WiiWare though..

    Actually, if you scrub the US one without the headers on version 1.2, it comes out at about 37 Meg.

    It was posted on the newsgroups a few weeks ago along with Anubis 2 at 91Meg, Super Kart GP at 120Meg, Deca Sports at 191Meg and Wiichess at 26 Meg.
