Well, only played a bit, but here are my initial thoughts:

- It's kind of a speed run platformer, but there doesn't seem to be any constraints on time.

- The music/soundtrack is great.

- Art direction is cute & simple

- Controls take some getting used to (I think but maybe it's just me)

Oh...

AND IT'S HARD AS F**K.

The game itself feels a bit like Mikey Shorts meets Super Meat Boy...

Anyways, hope some others try it and give their impressions.

Only complaint is I wish there was a Universal or iPad specific version (though playing @2x works fine given the simple style.

This looks very tempting, but why not universal? Doubt if I would ever buy a hard game that wasn't universal.

Oh wait, there's an HD version

Yeah not sure why the two separate, but nonetheless...it's only a buck.

Finally got a chance to play it. It's alright, but for some reason the controls got a little frustrating after awhile.
