Because of the bland title this seems to have passed under many people's radars (me included), but it sounds great. From what I've read it's basically Brain Training but with fake retro games (based on real ones) instead of puzzles.

I didn't even notice EG's review. It's import-only at the moment, but I definitely want to pick it up.

I've been playing it and I love it but it's really fucking hard and I'm stuck on the second set of games.

It's sort of like an extended version of WarioWare crossed with Xbox Live Achievements multipled by a NES.

Hairy - surprised you haven't already done a write-up on it by now, then. :)

Where did you get it from, and how much? I like the sound of it being really hard.

I would have written a review if I'd got far enough into it. Believe me.

I errr, acquired it.

I ploughed a fair few hours into this over the weekend. It's brilliant! All of the fake retro games are really well done and addictive, and I love the genius inclusion of each game having its own tips and cheat codes, which can often make the challenges much easier. Can't see why Hairy struggled on it so much. :p

A big shame that the sequel isn't getting a Western release, from what I've read it's even better and includes GB and SNES-era games. A fan translation is in the works though, apparently.
