In the tradition of other Neo Geo puzzlers like Magical Drop II and III comes Money Puzzle Exchanger. The game offers both a single player practice mode and a versus second player or CPU mode. Depending on the game mode, players select from up to eight different characters to play.
As the name suggests, the game is a puzzle involving exchanging money. The game board consists of a block of coins at the top of the screen and player's character at the bottom of the board. The player's character can pull down coins of the same type from one column and send them back up another column. Like the Magical Drop series, the object of the game is to keep the block of coins from reaching the bottom by making them disappear. Unlike the Magical Drop series, players can't simply match up coins.
Coins come in six different denominations: 1, 5, 10, 50, 100, and 500. When a pair of 500 coins are matched together they disappear from the board completely. Other coin denominations can be turned into single coins of a higher value by matching the appropriate number together. For example, five 1 coins can be matched together to make one 5 coin, which then can be paired with another to make a 10 coin, which can be matched with four others for a 50 coin, and so forth until the 500 coin which can disappear altogether. Besides the standard coins, there are also certain icons that when paired together can make masses of coins disappear from the screen. ~ Kyle Knight, All Game Guide
