Default In Need of an Awesome Platformer

Ever since I finished Legend Dary I've been wanting to pick up an epic platformer. My only prerequisite is it must be widescreen compatible. I only play platformers on iPhone and those black bars kill it for me. I tried to replay Miss Clair Garden and couldn't do it. Any suggestions? Is there one that just wowed you recently?

It's by no means "epic" but Super Splatform wowed me. It executes its simple concepts fantastically.

Metal Gear meets Super Meat Boy. Pure Awesomeness.
Closest thing I could compare it to on iOS is League of Evil. It blows the whole trilogy away though.

I like Freedom Fall and would recommend it. If you haven't seen it in action you might want to watch a video of it. It didn't feel like a traditional platformer to me. Maybe in part because of your goal being to move from up to down rather than left to right. It is like a "jump" (doodle jump, sonic, etc) in reverse with platformer styled controls. On that note, the controls are very good and I never felt like I was fighting against them.

No, to be honest it was a bit pricey for me.
