It's like that conch horn in the Chronicles of Narnia.

Whoa! And now they're making a new Yoshi game. "Yoshi's Universal Gravitation". Sounds like a physics book from a japanese scientist to me.
Actually, the Yoshi game has been out in Japan for awhile, though I heard it was a disappointment.
Actually, I heard it was decent. It's going to be called Yoshi Topsy Turvy when it comes out here in the states and in Europe

I heard it kind of sucks, too. It's made by Artoon, so I don't doubt that.

That's a pretty lame name change.

It's one extreme to another, couldn't they just call it "Yoshi: Flipside" or something instead!??

It's a neat idea, but from what I hear, the rotation is really chunky and kind of unweildy to control. It's a neat idea for a game, but I really have trouble seeing how it could work on a system where the screen is attached to the thing you're turning.

I heard it works better on the GBA screen than on a TV, but that was from IGN.

There's a rotation sensor in the cartridge, so when you tilt the GBA, it detects it and adjusts the action on-screen accordingly. They had a few Game Boy games with this mechanic, some Kirby game (which I think was the first) and a Made in Wario also. I think Pelican also made a controller like this once, years and years ago.

By the way, your avatar is jammin'.

Kirby Tilt'n'Tumble was the original GameBoy (Color?) game.

WarioWare Twisted! is supposed to come out in May over here.

The Kirby one was GBC. It was a pink cartridge, and the one game not compatible with the GBA SP because the cart wouldn't work right upside-down.

I remember that, it was a bitch. At least I could play it on the normal advance though.

I'll only assume your space bar was broken (Or barely working) and leave it at that, Seinfeld.

They should make controllers with these, so everyone would go back to playing just like my sister.
