Game Info
Originally developed for the arcades, Money Idol Exchanger obviously gave fans a run for their money as the game has an irresistible pull on your psyche. You’ll be fishing for quarters by the time you run the gamut on this great arcade classic by Face.
The genre of stacked objects continually falling to fill up the screen while you fight the deluge by mixing and matching objects can be remembered as the great age of puzzle twitchers. Money Idol Exchanger is exactly this genre but with some Idol love to help you through the maze. With names like Mightdealer, Debtmiser, Everyworker, and Cherrybiter, the girls are of that special Japanese flavor with lots of cuteness.
But the game’s quality comes through on the two-player versus mode. Like all the great drop games, the intensity of the battle mode is where a game makes its grade and this game performs like scholar. The fact that you have to do some addition while you’re burning your buddy makes the victory somehow sweeter. Not only are you a better player, you’re smarter too!
Money Idol Exchanger (also known as Money Puzzle Exchanger in the US) is a puzzle game created in 1997 by Japanese video game developer Face for the Neo Geo MVS arcade system. Athena Co. Ltd. ported it to the Game Boy and the PlayStation that same year.
