I'm about to die! Could you please
start the combo I want to make by pressing A?! *press A button desperately*
System: Haha, no.
Money Idol Exchanger is
the most complex and underrated puzzle game ever made, scan the manga!
a puzzle game released in 1997 by Face, similar to board puzzles like Magical Drop. You defeat your opponents making combos which send coin lines to the other board, and when the board is filled you die. The arcade version is known for allowing you to make an infinite number of combos, however...
make any combo in the GBA port or the PSX port!
Well, you can, but the game will always freeze your "pull" button before the #3 chain due to some bug or limitation inside the game.
Given this conditions is kind of impossible to beat the game or even play without going terribly frustrated/bored.
I have tested this bug in various emulators and is common to both PSX and GBA port. You are doing a combo and then suddenly the machine doesn't allow you to continue the chain, limiting your action to just moving the stick side to side.
No need to say you probably won't want to even touch this port at all after you advance some steps in the game's mechanic.
That said... I think it would be nice to repair this game and bring it back to its fast combo pace action from the original arcade version. I'm not very knowledgeable about PSX processor but I feel that in expert hands this could be done, so I just wanted to propose this idea. Thanks in advance!
