Looks like it may the same as the wii game, which was one of the best games on the platform.

I'm a sucker for retro games and new versions of them. Remember this classic on the Gameboy

Just bought it after watching a video on youtube of it. Seems very polished, high production values. Big animated intro. Controls are left side movement, right side jump (phew as i panicked when i didnt see any buttons on the preview screens)

Just met the 'blob' for the first time. Has some voice acting. All good so far, like i say its very polished. Look forward to playing this more later

I have it on Xbox One used to have it on I think it was NES when I was a little kid
Good platformer
If you haven’t played it before it may take you a minute to get it down but it’s a good game and a classic
Had no idea it was coming mobile I’m surprised

I'm pretty sure this was developed by WayForward too, which makes me that much more excited.

Favorite developers: Grumpyface, Michael Brough, Rocketcat, Donut Games, Nitrome, Orange Pixel, Radiangames, Llamasoft (come back!)

Still enjoying this. Apparently it has 60 odd levels which sounds a lot. Surprised there was no PR for this though. Didnt have a clue it was coming out

Yes, this is a port of Wayforward's Wii reboot. The NES version was designed by David Crane, who created many of the original Atari 2600 Activision games such as Pitfall.
