Yeah that's the one. The more we played it the more we uncovered the depth in the scoring system and the game is insanely addictive. Superb music too.

I took the family to Leigh On Sea yesterday only to find a small car boot sale on in the car park that I use. So I had a quick walk around and picked this up for £6.

To be honest for that price I wasn't expecting it to work but sure enough...

I know it's not the classic bread bin model but for £6 you can't be fussy.

99P off Ebay plus was only charged £1.20 postage. By the looks of it, it cost £2.60 for the seller to send it, poor chap! :?

Ive been genuinely undermined....the game doesnt work :lol:

On closer inspection the disc has a big split on it, ive already left him super positive feedback as he had lost money on post.
Tragically ammusing.

I suspect that the PS1 version of it will be horrific due to it being sprite heavy HOLYCRAPLOOKATTHESIZEOFTHATTHING 2D game on PS1

I promised myself I wouldn't but I couldn't resist the lure of a new Animal Crossing, so I've just bought:

Fire Emblem 3DS XL - £160 new from GAME
Shinobi - £5 new from GAME
Harvest Moon: A Tale of Two Towns - £15 new from GAME
Donkey Kong Country Returns - £26 from Shopto
Animal Crossing pre-order - £26 (BARGAIN) from Shopto


I'm also hoping that with Fire Emblem, Animal Crossing & Donkey Kong I'll be able to redeem that online offer and get a free copy of Luigi's Mansion...hopefully!
