    I was watching a video demo of monkeyball on the apple website and it turns out that instead of taking an extra step to have 3d sprites for the characters + their ball.... they went Nintendo DS on it and made them 2-D.... Not a huge problem... but they could have made them 3-d

    This isn't a big deal, considering that the rendering of 3D graphics would most likely be too much to handle on the iPod touch.

    If they make a second one possibly... even just a 3-d ball would be nice though.. I don't really care about the 2-D monkey. and I'm pretty sure it IS possible because just look at Neverball!

    Super monkey ball is a dumbass game anyway. I dont understand why people are making a big deal out of it.
