Like Kirby... if Kirby were SERIOUSLY TERRIFYING

It's a story as old as time itself: boy meets girl, boy takes girl out for a walk, boy is murdered by mobsters who kidnap girl, boy possesses vampires and kangaroos to get her back.Jaleco not only provides us with a bizarre and attention-grabbing...

This looks like it might be one of those hidden gems that make the VC so great. It also looks like it might be trash. Can't wait for the review.

I downloaded it a few hours ago. I'm pretty far, and its a very good game. But I have played the arcade version, and this is a bit inferior.
But if you only had a few bucks,
I'd reccomend Mario Picross or 3D Xevious.
I personnaly give it a 7. The only things I dont like are: lack of difficulty, music (it bugs me for some reason) and a bit of repetition.

@sam322 radar mission is a black and white battleship essentialy. I say, If you already have Donkey Kong or Picross, dont get anything. Just wait. All the AAA titles are coming. Those $3 should be put on Metroid II or Pokemon Yellow.

Then definantly Donkey Kong. It's even better than the NES one. To put it simply: you pay $4 for 100 level with infinite replay value. I've already played all the levels a few times. But if you prefer a sudoku-esque puzzle game, go with Picross.

I downloaded this and think it's quite charming and innovative ;) This is much better than Radar Mission, imho. Pick it up if you want a dose of retro goodness ;)

Think whatever you want about what I'm going to say, but the guy on the cover is my dad! XD He posed for it in a studio here in Chicago and it took a few hours! They said he had the look they needed! I just found this out today so I googled the name and I think it's really cool XD His name's Joe.

I think I must be the only person who doesn't think this is some kind of "hidden gem." Actually, I think it kinda sucks. Repetitive gameplay, shoddy controls, and bland graphics do not a good game make, The possession concept is way ahead of its time- props for that- but the execution leaves something to be desired. Best parts of the game: the "Game Over" screen with the weeping cartoon ghost, and the enemy descriptions in the manual. e.g., "Vampire: Revived by the syndicate from the dark embrace of the crypt after 400 years of slumber..." LOL

that is the most mis-leading box-art I have ever seen. I though this was some random shooter game for a gameboy when i saw it on the e-shop, so I skipped over it. I come back to poke at it now on NL and see a cute ghost. lolwut?
