Default Mall Mania

Maybe the BEST game of the unique genre where you run in a mall picking up items(products) and then rushing up to the cash register before your opponent. Really cool
Looking for the US version, only seen on videos on YouTube
Would be really happy if someone has/find it (I know the game was released in Sweden and Finland too, but I'm looking for the US version).
And another question: UDS has closed doors and AddGames looks like has done the same, so the game can be called abandonware/freeware or not?
Thanks for attention
Thumbs up for the best classic gaming site still active

Both the publisher (AddGames Advertainment) and the developer (Unique Development Studios) are not ESA members.
I haven't found any buylinks.

However, I haven't found any info about the game having been translated into English. I have found only Swedish and Finnish versions. In that case, I'm not sure if the game should be approved.

Smile About US version

This game was released in US, Sweden and Finland (cancelled in Brazil)
In US was released in cooperation with Pamida
Had heard about it too but never played it, good to see someone that still looks for such a rare game
Good luck trying to find it.

Talking SWE-ENG translation beta 0.4

As what it looks like I think there will be a long time of waiting to find such a rare game, so I decided to translate it myself.
Used a Hex Editor for it
Like I said, it's still beta because I didn't discovered how to edit those .tpg files, so all I got is this executable.
Works ONLY with the SWE version, not FIN version.
How to use it:
1. Extract in the same folder of the main game
2. Run mania.exe

Good part:
Menus are translated to english: new game, options, score and multiplayer.

Bad part:
Products, player biography and Quiz mode in original language, because I can't modify .tpg files, but is fully playable.

Download link(executable): (link updated)
https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resi...794B7CB4%21145 (OLD STUFF, game can be downloaded fully in english on main site.)

About the english version (Mall Mania), yes it was released because there are videos showing this version, but let's keep looking.

Lightbulb Finnish version is (probably) freeware

While in my search I'd found this YouTube channel:
http://www.youtube.com/user/MegaGameI
In this channel there's something like this:
Welcome to the Mega Game I, game-owned channel. Mega Game is a game AddGames-house developed shopping game, which is distributed for free for example. Mega market context.

Let's hope it is the same for US version

Thumbs up Updating blog

I decided to develop a blog for this game, if someone has some way to upload the US version, or even has it, it would be good if post it here or on my blog:
http://mallmaniacs-br.blogspot.com

For now, that's it, I'm still looking for this version, on the blog it has the tracks of the CD(not the Intro), and some interesting stuff.

If someone uploaded a video on youtube playing English version, then this person probably has it. Why not asking there first? That's how I got the Super Panic Monsters

That is a great idea, I did the same when I found it, only Zazyka1337 had answered me , and sent me the Finnish version, the one you can see on the blog.

The problem is, they look like they're ignored my messages or something, if someone manages to get it, I can post the links for them.

Here are the links of the videos (ignore comments):

EDIT: Skywalkerr2008 answered me, but he don't have anymore the CD, what's too bad
I'm still looking for the English version , and my site is still running, now it has videos explaining the game

Confirmed. Given Abandonia now accepts non-English games...
