Just came in the mail. I have been playing it all day on my real ST. I noticed that if you play it for a long time, your brain will kind of adjust to the page flipping to the point where it is not noticable. (at least it did with me) This is the only ST game with a real Mario kind of feel to the control. The more I play this the more I am impressed with almost every aspect of it. ST action is stupid, should have been 87%.

I just won this on Ebay. This was by far the hardest game to track down for the ST, it took me years of hunting to find it. Can't wait for it to come in the mail so I can see the original box and manual. Oh yeah, and to play it. (without a "cracked by" intro screen and cheats) I've played the pirated version and it is very fun, even despite the page flipping.

Total classic, great gameplay perfect graphics at the time. Perfect rip-off.

Simply great! Jochen Hippel did a great job with the music which was from the Maniacs of Noise and Chris Hülsbeck as far as I know. The game itself was extremely playable and addictive; first I played it with cheating but after a while found out that it's also very well playable without cheating.

Oh my God, does anyone remember the intro music? I still have it in the head. Around 15 minutes of a gorgeous sampled tune. I guess the best intro music ever heard on this machine (even Xenon 2's lagged largely behind)

I played this game on Commodore 64 it is super, i played after scooltime at THE scool computer (i even got locked up once when everybody left ;)... then i got the ST version. well same sound and graphics but AARRGG... this is the worst scolling mode you can imagine.. almost unplayable. And why it was banned by Nintendo? because of the print on the box where it says something like "the brothers are history" (i'm quite sure this are the exact words but something like this) in a graffity. this giana sisters game is better than mario brother. but for real good playing of the sisters stick to Commodore 64.

I heard this was banned by nintendo, for very obvious reasons. Even though the ST version was flip screen (or near as dammit..) it's a bloody brilliant game.

what a cheek to rip of nintendo, but ggs is actually better than that game, so top marks to the developers. RESPECT to the SISTERS

My sister actually loved to play this one. Like Nebulus this one would hook her for hours to the ST having me to either watch her play or do something else :) Very good Super Mario clone - another must have for your ST game collection.
