    Fun! Fun! Minigolf Touch wasn't bad. Shin'en developed it.

    And sadly Zero missed the sale by a week and a half.

    Haha, I like Nate's endorsement of Dream Course and Guillaume's response to next week's selection.

    I have Dream Course on the Wii VC and I just can't get the hang of its gameplay, try as I might. I think as far as non-traditional Kirby goes, Canvas Curse, Epic Yarn, Air Ride, and Mass Attack are probably my picks, while Super Star, Adventure, and RtDL are choice traditional games.

    @TriforceBun Dream Course could definitely be more intuitive. But once you get the hang of it, it's so good. Easiliy my favorite Kirby spinoff and definitely in my top 5 SNES games, maybe even above Super Star.

    @Anand I wish I had a GBA SP so I could play Tilt 'n Tumble with a backlight. I tried once on a GBC and couldn't see a thing. The GBA/GCN Tilt 'n Tumble tech demo also looked really neat...too bad nothing came of that.

    You can't play Tilt n' Tumble on an SP, the controls are reversed.

    I kept my OG GBA specifically to play Tilt and Tumble. (But you can still play it upside down on the SP/DS/DS Lite.)

    Actually, I wonder how hard it would be to just flip the mercury switch over...

    If I were a game journalist, I would fucking grill Nintendo at every press event about Tilt'n'Tumble 2 and Roll-o-Rama. It's just getting more and more appropriate!

    Gui, grill them in my stead.

    I certainly agree. I downloaded the game on Wii when it released (even though my SNES copy is around here somewhere), and it took me a bit to get the hang of it again. However, once I did I was hooked. It is, so good! Though, for nostalgic reasons, I think Kirby's Pinball Land gets my vote for the best Kirby spinoff. Dream Coarse, though, is probably the best and most curious one, as it's one I never would have thought of, but one that works so well.

    @nate38 With creative use of the GameCube handle, you could play the game on a Game Boy Player!

    @Guillaume You can actually get around this problem if you use an Action Replay or GameShark, as the cartridge slot on these devices is the right side up.

    I actually preferred the reflective TFT screens to the backlit ones. Those screens showed BRILLIANT, VIVID colour when you played outside, like while riding on the bus during the day.

    Now, with the trend being towards more backlit screens, I can't play my portable system unless I'm hiding from the sun like a vampire, as any light hitting the screen washes out the graphics, making me say "They might as well have made this for the Wii[U] instead!"
