I will probably get Triple Trouble sooner or later since I never had a GG and always wanted to play that game.

Also, from what I've heard, the GG emulator is a marvel unto itself.

Played a little Triple Trouble earlier. It's not half bad. $5 is a bit steep when you consider what can be had for less than that on the service, though.

I picked up Triple Trouble, if only to relive the brief period in my childhood when I owned a Game Gear. Easily the best Sonic title on the Game Gear. The music from Sunset Park Act 3 is still one of my all time favorite game tracks.
