Nintendos Idee, die Knobelei über und unter der Erde ablaufen zu lassen, ist nicht nur neu, sondern auch überraschend gut. Tja, Maulwürfen wird ja seit Jahr und Tag nachgesagt, daß sie blind sind, aber wie es aussieht, sind sie wohl nicht auf den Kopf gefallen.

Not only is Mole Mania one of the best games on the original Gameboy handheld, but it also benefits from improved coloured graphics when played on the Gameboy Colour or through the Super Gameboy adapter on Super Nintendo. Whichever way you choose to play it, though, you are in for a treat, just don't expect to be able to put it down (or get the catchy tunes out of your head) for some time.

A submerged classic dug up from the archives of gaming history and given a new chance to shine, 3DS owners with a desire for a charming, challenging puzzler should not overlook Mole Mania, regardless of its colourless origins. Shigeru Miyamoto's genius sparkles once more, and this time should definitely not be overlooked, especially at such a low price on the Nintendo 3DS eShop Virtual Console service.

For those of you who loved Zelda: Link's Awakening and are eagerly awaiting Conker's Pocket Tales, may I suggest this title. The blend of puzzles and adventure may be exactly what you need to tide you over. The play is fast-paced and fun, and may keep you occupied for hours at a time. I haven't owned this game long enough to complete it, but I can't imagine growing tired of it. The versus game is also a nice bonus and adds replay value.
