Monkeys! In giant balls! Yea, your fondest dreams have come to pass. The rolling ball of Marble Madness meets the speed and item-grabbing of Sonic the Hedgehog with brilliant results. Retains its arcade origin feel with maddening difficulty and "start the last 30 levels over again" continue method.
But damn those monkey balls can bounce. Plus you gotta factor in the mini/party games, which would nearly qualify as a full-fledged game in their own right. One of those games that just has an inimitable spirit of fun about it. Who could not like this game? Aside from weak namby-pambies, that is.

Doesn't support progressive scan output (the sequel does, fortunately).
