Guess I'll be opening my wallet once again this week. This was another game on my wish list.

Somehow missed this one amongst all the pre-Holiday releases, but after reading the primary game thread now, I'm sold!

It's a fun platformer where you use various gadgets and stuff to get through it... like... a spy. It's very replayable with the whole 3 star ratings system and various gadgets that can change the way you approach finishing the level. If this sounds good to you then there are a bunch of regs here (including myself) that consider this a great game.

One of the selling points for me when I got the game (one of my early iOS purchases) was way back in Version 1.2 they posted an update to remove IAP. I didn't type that wrong... REMOVE IAP. That helped push me over the edge when I was making the decision on it. But reading the reviews on the game and feedback really made this a no brainer. I like spy gadgets. I love platformers. YES it's worth my buck. If you hate spy stuff and platformers why would you even consider a game like this? Go with your gut.

Negatives?

44.6MB download, 143MB installed. So it's not tiny... but it's got a lot of quality content in there so it's not that bad a deal. That's 1MB installed smaller than Angry Birds Seasons or 8MB less than the original Angry Birds. 32MB more than Rayman Jungle Run. A hair more than that than Run Kitty Run. So to me it's a bit thick but this isn't Karateka thick.

Wow, this game is pretty good, really impressed. The controls are great, totally removable. They take some time to adjust cause you can also resize them, but wow, this game is very impressive. Can't believe I had never heard of it before.

This is a really good hdmi game, actually one of the best platformers on the tv due to the moveable graphics, pseudo 3d graphics, and kind of large size characters. Really impressive tv game. Maybe the best platformer for the tv. Plays better than wimp or mikey shorts on the tv.

Cool game, not sure whether the sale ended, but get it for sure.
