Doesn't the video seem to show co-op? At 2:47 you very briefly see a clip with 4 toads on screen at once, all with different coloured spots (red, blue, yellow and green). It's very short, but does look like it could be co-op to me.

Rawden commented on 7 Wonders II:

I know this is an old game, but having spent hours of frustration trying to figure out the last map piece secret level, and not understanding why the online solution I found didn't work, I thought I'd leave this for any equally frustrated player in case they came looking for the answer.

Firstly, it's not you - it's the game!! When the level generates some sets of tiles are fixed and some sets are randomly generated. The problem with this level is that there is a bug meaning that one of the sets that should be fixed is randomised. If you don't see two yellow bells bottom right (just above and left of the bottom right ice ball) then the level is impossible! If you do then it is easy!

In the end I tried and tried again to solve this level, resorting to switching it off if I was about to fail, then playing the main level through again to open the secret level again - many times! I was becoming convinced that it was actually impossible (and the company had done it on purpose to spite me and save the hassle of designing a bonus eigth wonder at all!) when suddenly there the bells were and it was simple.

A very annoying bug, but worth getting past to enjoy the extra set of levels for Peru!

@chickster - This one drove me mad for ages and I couldn't work out why the online solutions I found didn't work. The reason is that there is a bug in the game! When the level generates some sets of tiles are fixed and some sets are randomly generated. The problem with this level is that one of the sets that should be fixed is randomised. If you don't see two yellow bells bottom right (just above and left of the bottom right ice ball) then the level is impossible! If you do then it is easy! I had the DS cartridge version and I ended up resorting to switching it off if the level couldn't be solved, then playing the main level through again to open the secret level again until it generated with the two bells there and I could solve it. Annoying, but worth it to get the extra set of levels for Peru!

Rawden commented on Review: Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward (3DS):

@RetrogamerFan Region Locking on a DSi only applies to the eShop and not to cartridges - that is a common misconception widely promoted by those pirating software because the extra fraud detection on a DSi means it refuses to play their fake copies of games. I have a European Dsi on which I've played both genuine US and Japanese imported DS games, but also have a European game that works fine on a DS or DS Lite, but my DSi refuses to play because it turned out to be a fake copy. But as you say, all 3DS games are region locked.

@ToxieDogg I believe the 3DS is the same as the DSi with DS cartridges, so I think it's not that your copy of New Super Mario Bros is the US version, but that it is a fake. With popular games like this or Mario vs Donkey Kong Mini Land Mayhem there are so many fake US copies around it can be hard to find a genuine one - especially on places like eBay! If someone says a game only works on a DS or DS Lite, then whatever reason they might give for that, what they are really saying is - This is a fake copy! Buyers Beware!
