    Yep i was quite involving it being in 3D.

    Cooking momma is rubbish tho, all the game mechanice are on the lower touch screen so all thats in 3D is just game menus.

    It is 30 reloads. For instance I died, but it didn't take a try off me.

    I played it to the end on my next time and it was a pretty decent demo.

    I think it seems like it could be a good game.

    Cooking Mamma is terrible. I can't believe they even sanction that game. I only downloaded it because I could, but wish I'd just left it :rolleyes:

    That reminded me of a question, how do you remove the homescreen icons?

    tried the iOS wiggle and that didnt work

    If you mean you want to delete something of the home screen you need to go into the settings and delete data.

    You're allowed to play(start) the demo 30 times, before it deletes/stops working.
    Better than the Japanese and US stores, they're into single figures.

    and yeah, as above, Cacking Mama is terrible, but will sell by the bucketload to the shoveware collectors/"Family" players.

    Wow, well done! Bet your hands were shaking when you were down to your last ball.

    To be honest I've played the table that much I know the best things to do.
    Basically as soon as I start I try and just get it down the side lanes so I can light the letters and get my kickbacks activated. From then on the best way to rack the points up is to hit the 3 targets on the shaman in front of you and then hit the ball through the gap to get that spinning. Then time your next shot so you hit the ball at the end of the top left flipper so it shoots straight across into the blue swirly hole. Once that's spinning it's then a case of getting the ball onto the bottom right flipper and hitting the ball once at the very end and if done right you will hit the red swirly hole so all 3 are spinning.

    From here you have to be quick and hit the ball through the yellow swirly gap. Each time it gives you 2 million and after 3 successful shots it awards you with an extra ball. I think you can only nail 5 shots before it closes and then you have to repeat the process again.

    To open the gap by hitting the targets is risky as the wrong shot from the right flipper will cause the ball to rebound down the left hand lane so you really need kickbacks activated before you attempt it.
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Not half mate. Bit gutted really as I was 1 shot away from getting another extra ball and I had all my kickbacks activated and ball locks in place and also a disaster ready to be activated. Messed a shot and it drained right down the middle. If I had got my extra ball I could easily have banged another 30 million on top I reckon.

    160 million is top of the country. It will be mine goddamit!! :D

    Couldn't resist it, just downloaded Zen Pinball.

    Great little game that, well with the £4.50.

    First go at the medieval table and I scored 14,000,000

    Many a blairy eyed night to come I would imagine.

    Really disappointed with the Metal Gear demo. I'd marked it down as my next purchase but it's just not for me.

    A bit gutted now!

    Ive been waiting for this also but having bought the HD collection on ps3 last week. Its really showed up that the controls are not great and the small screen isnt good for this type of game,
    It looks as though its silky 60fps on ps3 with it being under 30 on 3ds.

    Having said all that if you dont have access to the hd version, its still worth picking up as the 5-6 hours ive played so far this game is one of the best ever made and probably above the 1st in the series also.

    I liked the MGS demo personally, but I couldn't play it with the 3d on very well.

    No framerate issues on the final game..got a glowing 8 from Edge, who usually are brutal with reviews.
    Control method is fine, even better with the CP Pro though.

    The demo might be the one from the TGS last year.

    It seems to have the Resi type 3D but not in the menu, it's worked from the slider..to it's set like Resi to Strongest, that's what I've made of it..Slide it slightly down, and it get's lesser, but sharper.

    Yeah I did find the view controls a bit fiddly using the face buttons so I can see hope the CP Pro will improve things.
