Played around with it for 5 minutes and it seems just like the amiga version... which is good ;-)

Now to see Cadaver... hopefully soon

Question

I'm not a GBA owner myself,but I've gotta ask,just how playable can some of these old classics be,I mean the controls aren't exactly like the old trusty joystick control?

Control with a joypad was much better when I had the miggy, and in the GBA, the adition of a second button means you can do some extra stuff with it (perhaps use A to make a wee feeble shot or pass, and C for the high lob shot), BUT the GBA's D-PAd is one of the most atrocious controllers I ever used...

The old white Gameboy's D-Pad was MUCH better.

Cheers, Kametyken. Very cool site. The movie looks pretty much identical to the Amiga version, which is nice.
