Found it elsewhere, has been no upcoming thread or anything which is a bit strange! Looks pretty good though, look forward to reading any impressions here

Nobody going to take the plunge first? I would, but don't have a spare GB right now! I would love to see a decent Mega Man knock-off though.

Just played through the first three levels and have to say, really nice game. It's an auto runner (which I don't mind), and move through each level collecting orbs and completing two goals/missions per level. Looks like there are 17 different upgrades. I just unlocked punch which allows you to destroy enemies.

The graphics are awesome and the controls are great. Swipe up/down on the left side to jump/slide and tap the right to punch.

Happy I bought. Nothing revolutionary but if you enjoy these type of games, worth the price of entry.

100% premium.

Really nice premium looking game. For those who like autorunners judging from the video i think they will love it. I will not download though as i do not play autorunners (got bored of them a long time ago).
