Looks great. I particularly like how simple the controls look. I almost always prefer the one touch controls instead of the onscreen "game pad" that so many games have.

Heard great buzz around this new game. Haven't tried the Wii version but would love to try it in iOS.
Thanks for the giveaway, TiPb! :)

Andrew Wray says:

It's almost like I'm playing a platformer on a console here -- the graphics are superb! I love the control mechanism too.. Very intuitive stuff. I think more games (platformers, at least) would do well in adopting controls like this given how fluid the gameplay is. Love it! Good stuff :)

So many apps have people saying "this is how it should be done!" but it's rare for an app to actually deliver (For me anyway). I'd like to try this, but at $3.99 I don't think I would. Free? Definitely.
