From the archives, a review of what might be fallen-giant SNK’s last attempt at something almost entirely original (ignoring for a moment it was a rhythm game with a style that looks very familiar…). Cool Cool Toon was a Dreamcast game that did everything right and still managed to suck.
SNK tweaked the console over the life of the system. No surprise there, gotta keep things moving or you die, right? Well, many in the Neo community didn’t want you to know what changed, when, and how. One secret email to me later, along with a chart and some clues, and… Well, have a look.
I’ve made a comprehensive list of differences between old and new Neo Geo cartridge hardware. Please have a look. Warning: Technical!
