Finally! I was waiting for this thread to show up after I saw the game on another blog posted under the NZ releases for today. Echoseven, got some work before you can quite live up to IMNS. Just playing.

Anyways, this game looks absolutely fantastic. Simply cannot wait (period!)

EDIT: I do question the controls though. Hopefully they're customizable because the jump being to the left of the shoot seems odd. iFanzine did a preview, though, and they didn't mention anything about the controls.

Waiting for: Airborne Troopers, Mini Motor Racing. Minisquadron 2, Tweetland, Car Jack Streets 2, Drive Forever, Turf Geography Club, Junk Jack!!

Heh, thanks but I know I'll never be as good as his machine. :'(

I actually knew about this one even before he posted it, but it slipped somewhere between my notes - the great INSM reminded me. ^.^

Going to be getting this one as well. Platformers are another genre I can't resist buying whenever a new one comes out.

No problem. It's just great someone else stepped up to the plate (if you did - I don't know the whole situation. )

Btw, you're also missing Life of George. Just a heads up.

The 2nd platformer out this week, and this one might actually more enjoyable due to superior dpad controls.

I am not a dev, I just post here.
