LOL!

Well, this one just looks too good to even ask if it's worthy of my buck.

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.
The difference with lack of 3D is that this plays kinda like Shantae (or Paper Monsters). The other dimensions are there, but they're simply flat.

I've been jonesing for a new platformer. The animated movement comes across a bit stiff. Can an early adopter chime in on the controls? I'm curious how accurate, fluid and responsive the controls are.

Well i played this a while back on the 3ds. I remember it being pretty difficult at times. Should be interesting to see how this one controls...

Also retina support for new ipads?

It's not the controls that make it seem a bit off, it's the movement. Your character just moves somewhat slowly. The controls are movable (but not re-sizable) and after a bit of adjusting on my iPad they work really well. Haven't felt like I died due to the controls yet.

On the iPad 4 it looks sharp and gorgeous. Looks like retina, but it's pixel art.

Achievements and leaderboards for the fastest completion time of levels. Not all levels I don't think, but quite a lot of them.

This game is awesome. If you're on the fence, you might as well come to this side. The grass is greener here. But man, does this game hurt my OCD. When a level is hard, and I can't get all 100 crystals, just aaugghh! This is a very good game if you like being methodical and efficient in your platformers.
