Wow, that look's like sh*t. Though, I did enjoy the NES version of MM.

From what I know, the Japanese NES version of MM is pretty dang freaky.

No SCUMM as the engine, no scrolling rooms, and other weird stuff. It wasn't even programmed by Lucasfilm Games!

As far as I can tell, ScummVM will never support it, so you'll need an emulator for it.

I personally think it's only worth buying if you are collecting. The game itself doesn't seem like much fun to me, since it looks rather ugly and strange.

Ho, ho. This time I didn't have to advertise for myself :-)

For those interested, take a look on E-bay later this autumn. Both Indy 3 and Loom for the FM towns will be auctioned off WITHOUT reserve price.

For those interested2, I have also sold ZAK, Indy 3, Loom, Indy 4 and MI for the Towns privately just because I wanted a new (better older one) car and now I can afford it :-)

Please don't hate me for selling them.....

I do hate you. Well.. I don't. I just wish I had the money when you offered them to me :(

And, AT - the game is totally different on the NES. Many aspects are different due to Nintendos' various policies. And, ScummVM doesn't need to support it! If you buy it on cartridge, you need a console!! You can't plug into your floppy drive man! And if you get a ROM (don't, its illegal) then any NES emulator will run it perfectly.

Well, this time Dimmu, you've tempted me. I can actually afford this one!

I also have a fully working Famicom unit if you win.
