So is this a speed or traditional platformer? Got my hands full with Mini Dash and, frankly, I had been kind of burnt out on speed platformers prior to that.

Not a fan of speed platformers myself, from what i've seen on the videos it seems to be more a traditional type of platformer

I believe it's a traditional platformer

It's a standard platform game; there is a timer present, but it counts up, not down.

Glad it's more traditional. Think it might take me an eternity to get through some of Mini Dash's levels. Need something wih a little less pressure.

This is really, really, really good. No iAP as far as I can see, which is rather interesting, but the game is four kinds of awesome from Tuesday. Yeah, it's that good.

There's a timer on levels that goes up, and there's a speed running aspect to the leaderboards (#1 on 1-1. Boo yah.) but there's nothing to stop you taking your time and finding all coins, discovering the secret level, and just having a great time. Definitely a great pick if it looks even remotely interesting.

I've only just beaten 1-1 (speedrunning takes many replays) but apparently there are boss fights and other goodies. Can't wait.

Still kind of interested in this but I see a huge contrast is the reviews of the 3DS version compared to the PC version. It kind of sounded like the game made good use of the 3D effects (which we obviously won't get on the iOS.)

Metacritic 3DS: 80%
Metacritic PC: 60% (granted only 4 reviews)

Sure it's still well worth the buck. Playing some other platformers like Polyroll already so might wait on this one.
