Bought it and it is fantastic. The art style is wonderful and I love the way it plays. The character will run a direction until the edge of the screen and then head back the other way. You simply hold to charge your jump and let go.

No online scores from what I can tell.

Question does it use any Achievement system? Like OpenFeint, Crystal, or Plus+.

Not only achievements but you can also unlock a secret in the game
if you get them all.
