I'm blanking on the name, but someone ported it to Dreamcast too.

Marble Blast Ultra, there it is. Just looked in my arcade list.

So yeah maybe that's a random alternative if you guys don't have access to Super Monkey Ball, lol. Definitely recommended!

Thats the only one I have. I plan on playing that one.
I have debated on getting the one for the Wii though... anyone want to share their thoughts on the Wii version?

Oh wow a TR that's for games I actually own!

I have both Gamecube games. Skyward Sword's taking up a lot of time, but I may try and participate in this.

Just sequels or similar games of the genre?
This is a great policy, it brings awareness of other unknown games. I love to read not only the game at hand but references to similar games maybe as far back as Marble Madness. I played Mojo! on the PS2 and Vertigo on the Wii and am curious about the Kororinpa series.

I have the PS2 version of Monkey Ball Deluxe, may have to give that ball a spin. :D

I think you can play the PS2 game with a Spitfish Tilt Control Adaptor. 8)

I'll have to order my copy tomorrow but I'll definitely be taking part in this month's TR.
The PSTV is amazing.

Lol, from memory. I used to date a girl who loved it. Then she cheated on me and I sold my copy to buy a bottle of wine to drink with another girl.

What about drunk girls playing with balled monkeys?
I'm still not sure whether I'm a kid or a squid now.
