What are some of your favorite elements and obstacles in a platformer?

Wimp does an outstanding job... It automatically guesses which save file is the most recent without you having to tell it and it updates to that instantly in the background. I've never had it not work or get it wrong.

(I never understood games like Asphalt and Gun Bros that have to ask "Which of these save files is correct? Online or local?" OBVIOUSLY IT'S THE ONE THAT HAS THE MOST XP/COINS/PROGRESS AND WAS PLAYED LAST! /rant)

I've had a little trouble with Bean's Quest and Slingshot Racing updating the icloud save correctly but for the most part they seem to work now. In short, Wimp is the best example I can think of (especially as a fellow platformer) and I can't wait for Mikey Shorts to implement it as well.

Also, the Halloween version looks awesome!

It has been a while since I played it, but Crazy Hedgy has always worked perfectly for me as well. Was the first game I played where iCloud "just worked". I can imagine it is kind of trickier to implement it later on, since there probably are quite a few people who have save files on multiple devices. Some also may not want them synced.

I really look forward to iCloud support! This is the kind of game that really benefits from it in my opinion, since it is so perfect for short pick-up-and-play sessions on whichever device you happen to have with you.

The Halloween version convinced me to buy the full game. One of my new favorites. I've been playing it pretty steady since I bought it and finally three starred all the story and challenge levels. Whatever your next project is, I'm down.
