Too cool. I was afraid it was gonna be a 3D update for the PC or something idiotic like that, but the GBA version should rock. The screens looked like an old LSD trip from many years ago. And they are also planning to release GBA remixes of Jet Set Willy, Uridium, and Paradroid! Great stuff for us retroids!

About using an emulator on the PC. I remember having played a couple of remakes of MM before as freeware. Same levels, but updated graphics. There are quite a few remakes out there which are quite well done.

and even some Atari games !
- Asteroïds

The GBA is definitively one excellent console for all the retro-gamers we are
