Super Mario Brothers Clone... With Women Characters...

I used to play this old game for the Amiga when I was a youngster that was, basically, EXACTLY like a Super Mario Brothers game or somethin'... Except you controlled women, and instead of mushrooms I think you collected rainbow out of blocks. Also... And this may just be an incredibly hazy memory and be way-off... but I THINK when you collected one of the aforementioned rainbows, your went all frizzy... Kind of like an afro hairstyle or something...
If people could help put a name to that game and tell me where I could download it I'd be very appreciative, thanks!

Hey, that's the C64 version, you will confuse the guy

It could be the (pseudo?) sequel to Giana, Hard n Heavy.

Hmmm....a huge difference between the character on the title screen and the one in the game.

The title screen lady looks better to me - spiky breasts beat spiky hair!

BTW Lev this game was banned for being a Mario clone!

Hmmm... you're right. I'm pretty sure I created a new screen some time ago, but I most have lost it. I'm on it.

I was just wondering how on Earth they could have ever got away with so blatantly ripping-off Super Mario Brothers. So that's my answer - They DIDN'T get away with it!

Is this a proper sequel to Great Giana Sisters as someone aluded to earlier?

Also, how are you handling screenshots for games that use other resolutions than 320x256? That Giana Intro piccy is at 320x512, and it looks a bit strange in there.

Lev: I said it was the sequel. I think it was a proper sequel but Im not sure!

We don't accept games having a resolution different from 320 x 256. The games that don't change their minds can sod off!

Here's the cloudified Great Giana Sisters screens:

Thanks for introducing me to Hard n Heavy! It's a really cool game! In particular, I really like the in game tunes - they rock!
