Okay, so I saw this game on eBay per coincidence (import from the US) and decided to buy it. It's mildly fun, but...

The game states everywhere I have to shake and twist the GBA, and that the cartridge has special sensors to detect this movement. But I shake the thing as much as I can, and nothing happens! The cartridge looks like any normal GBA game, too. Now I HAVE to play the games using the left and right buttons rather than twisting the GBA...

Anyone know what's wrong? Did they re-release the game later without the special twist cartridge, or something? Because I feel like I'm missing out on a lot of fun...

maybe it's a fake cartridge.

or it could be the fact that it's american, and you're european.

I'm pretty sure it's not fake, or someone must have put a lot of effort in nailing the look... My guess is that there was some kind of lame re-release without the cool twist feature or something. <_<

the cartridge should look (i think) like this: http://img109.imageshack.us/img109/4088/cartoucheef5.png

If it doesnt then you probably bought a fake.

Or if it does, maybe the sensor has broken.

If i were you I'd try and get a refund, and report the seller to ebay for selling illegal copies of games.

Or tell the seller you will inform ebay unless he refunds you.
And if he/she gets pissy, report them and demand a refund

Well, damn, then. That sucks.

I bought stuff from this seller before, so I don't think it's her fault. I'm still getting a refun, but only if I can find another copy of the game soon.

Isn't Touched for the DS? Forget it, then.

Hayo taught me that the majority of GBA games on ebay are fake I didn't believe him, ordered Minish Cap and BAM, It's a fake! Works fine, the box was just printed out from Microsoft word, that's all

So far I only bought originals, not fake ones. I only buy from the Netherlands, anyway.

IF this one is fake, which it certainly doesn't (box and instruction booklet included), then they did a mighty good job deceiving two people.

Anyway, playing now and it's not so bad... just a bit more difficult. And... Freaking nose picking boss?!

EDIT: looked at the box REALLY closely... Yeah, I think it IS a fake! Some things are just at the wrong place, or missing, and the front of the box shows a bit of JPEG compression.

Ah yes. I bought Pokemon Emerald off eBay only to find it was a fake. Posted it back and the chap denied recieving it. So I kicked up a huge shit storm and even contacted his old buyers to get them complaining too. It was like a huge mofo fight on top of a giant mountain and lightning and we won.

I ordered Megaman & Bass for GBA off ebay.

I got a genuine Nlntondo cartridge. It still worked of course.

This is my first fake :')

I hear it's cheaper to make your own fakes than buying the games.
