Sounds to me like this will be another qualifier below the review, in the same area as "number of players" or "high score".

But it sounds like naming the beverage is not enough - I think people will want a short explanation.

Thoughts? Examples?

The Great Gianna Sisters on the C64 is a pretty good side-scroller. I like the Super Mario hack better though where the lead characters and some of the enemies are replaced with Mario and Luigi.

Pair all the E.T.-tagged games with IPAs and all the games graded A+ with stouts.

So unless I have a copy already on one of the many floppies littering my 'guy room', this one is looking unlikely. Unless I finally break down and go with an SD2IEC-like device and try it out via rom.


Wow, a thousand dollars? Probably because Nintendo wanted a ban on it because it was a Mario rip-off?
And I thought the Nintendo DS was expensive with a price of 30 dollars!

Anyway, the 'Giana Sisters DS' is a really nice, classic platformer, with beautiful graphics and fantastic retro music. It also contains the original levels (with remade graphics) as a bonus stage. Shame so little people played it, since it was only released in PAL regions. But since the DS is region-free, I can recommend it to all you American who like classic platform games!
