    Picked this up this morning on Y!JA. I've eyed this game and searched for it ever since it was released in 1999. Has anyone here actually played the game? From what I've read it's a pretty decent game. It can't be any worse than the BW Transmetals game and for 800 yen it's not like I spent a lot on it.

    Its a great portable fighting game. It seems loaded with humour in the attacks and stuff as well. lol at Cheetor's specials :D .

    I thought it was pretty fun for a GB fighter.

    It's one of the better TF games out there. It's not deep or incredibly complicated as fighters go, but it is fun.

    I frequently play it on a emulator. Pretty darn great fighting game considering it's for GBC. Even though I can imagine using select to change modes can be quite difficult on the GB platform.

    Is that the one with Star Upper in it? I would love to see some caps, not that I'll be able to own and play the game in the near future...

    I just found that the game has Wiki pages, both on the TF Wiki (here) and regular Wikipedia (here). The latter has animated gifs of what appear to be captures of the characters. (And yep, Star Upper is indeed present.)

    This is the first I'm hearing of this game, and I'm very interested. Anybody know where I could buy it? And should it work on a U.S. GBA?

    Also, I want a Star Upper toy now. :)

    I have the ROM and find the game to be awesome. Thank you very much for the move list.


    Now...am I the only one who actually liked Beast Wars Transmetals for N64?
