Looks interesting, I'll say that much. Will hold off for some impressions (or a review) before taking the plunge though. Here's hoping it's a good'n.

Awesome

Oh yeah! This one will become popular. Great platformer with amazing graphics, awesome music/soundtrack, and innovative game mechanics for the genre.

You are the small little ball of energy, is the best way to put it, and you collect items to power up several trees to open up the portal to the next world. The controls are superb. Fixed or float left-hand stick (translucent as to not affect the graphics), right side of the screen tap to jump (no button). You double tap to jump and then magnetize and attach yourself to strategically placed circular spinning vortex thingys that appear throughout the game and help you up ledges etc. Your creature can then be flung from the vortex to the next vortex or ledge.
It is super cool as some of the ledges are quite large and you can fly through the air magnetizing yourself to many vortex thingys. The first level was short, but the second level (as far as I've gotten) was rather long. Being a strong platfromer fan, I have no doubt I will get my money's worth! Amazing graphics and solid fun gameplay!
