Oscar scares me......
I may still consider this if it gets good reviews.
I'd be suprised if it costs less than 800pts.

yeah I agree with WhoKnew, this should be decent if not good. I want a megaman sequal for Dsi it would be awesomeness.



Macaronius said:

scratch that.... dsiware only takes up 40 mb of data
maybe if they make a dsi enhanced card for ssb ds they could make upgrades for it through dsi shop!

I played his a lot on the old Amiga (as Trolls), and it wasn't too bad. Quite fun in its own way, and incredibly colourful and vivid for its day.

I love this game, I remember this game with a different central character a Troll on the Amiga and it was great fun. I think this game is even better and since I bought it at the weekend, I cannot put it down.
Its worth every one of those 800 points
