Topic: Was a Super Monkey Ball Deluxe champion, finally tried Neverball.
Yeah, it's really amazing how this game satisfies that nostalgic itch. It's different enough to be fresh but similar enough to satiate that aching nostalgia I've felt for about 5 or 6 years now.
I used to play Super Monkey Ball Deluxe from when I was about 8 to about 16, and now I'm 22. It's been hard on me, fondly remembering the times I had, especially since I beat every level in the game, including the Master stages and their extras. (Master 13 and 19 took hundreds of tries to beat.)
I heard about Neverball for at least a couple years but it's beyond me why I never actually tried it. Just today did I download it and download most of the custom map packs and I gotta say that it's a bunch of pure delight to play.
I like traversing skinny pathways ala Exam-C and one of the maps had a plural amount of goals, and on the first try, I made it across the skinny path to the final goal. Satisfying.
I finished the Easy and Medium stages with my keyboard as it's easier to play with the arrow keys than the mouse, although I'm going to eventually use a controller to fully relive the SMB experience.
How's everyone's experiences with Neverball gone?
