Sega Channel[edit]

I know the game was released on the Sega Channel for the Sega Genesis. Does anyone have a source for it though? Sergecross73 msg me 18:49, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Incorrect information[edit]

Alexey Pajitnov didn't design the game. He only endorsed it. The credits for the Game Boy, Windows, and Super NES don't have his name. Plus the back cover of the PC game says: '... and I am proud to endorse the product.'

Wow, all the years, I never knew that. I can't say I blame AllGame for making the mistake. The way his face is plastered all over the game and packaging, it sure looks a lot like he made it, especially if that gamebox wasn't there to read. (I never had a box with my copies.)
So, I guess we alter it to say something along the lines of "Despite commonly attributed to being designed by AP, the game was merely endorsed by him" in the lead and/or Dev section." If it's literally on the back of the PC game case, that's about as definitive of a source possible. Sergecross73 msg me 02:26, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
Well... this whole thing of "reliable sources"... I think I already discussed once or twice about it, eh... I'm 99,9% sure he didn't design the game. Do what you think is the best. :) Meanwhile I removed the title from his English Wiki page. --Hydao (talk) 02:48, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

Zoo corporation[edit]

http://www.zoo.co.jp/english/about-history.html ... "1994: Developed "BreakThru!" exclusively for the US market." --Hydao (talk) 04:20, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

"Following the release of Zoo's PC game "The Wall" in 1993, it was was released in North America as "BreakThru!" by Spectrum Holobyte Inc." http://www.zoo.co.jp/english/about.html --Hydao (talk) 04:30, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

Removing the trivia section[edit]

So, I removed the Trivia Section because:

  • WP:TRIVIA
  • None of the sources used are deemed reliable over at WP:VG/S.
  • The sources didn't themselves note that the games were similar or anything. The way in which it was worded seemed kind of like WP:OR.

I'm not opposed to mentioning it more briefly/objectively in something like a "See Also" section, as they both seem to be puzzle games by the same Devs, but, unless I couldn't find it, I didn't even see the actual game being referenced in that list of Sailor Moon games. I could have missed it though, as some of those titles are long and confusing at first glance... Sergecross73 msg me 13:11, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

It's ok. I added that "trivia" on MobyGames. About the screenshot, can you find one (Windows version) that illustrates decently the gameplay? --Hydao (talk) 18:00, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
