Video looks cool

Just watched the video and it does look very fun!
I am worried about games that are ports of other mobile games though.. most of them have not been great so far...
Looks promising!

Full review later...played first 2 levels of first world and IT ROCKS! This feels like the first real platformer for the device. Lots of fun, hopefully it will be long enough, but first impressions are great.

I tried buying it and it says ITEM IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE.

I have seen this before but does anyone know why it does this?

I tried on my computer and on my ipod and no luck.

This sucks - This is one of the games I was most looking forward to.
