Yep i was looking forward to this but surprised at the price, my fault for not seeing an earlier page in the upcoming thread for it though as it said 1.99.

I'm a sucker for platformers though so we'll see at midnight

I don't know, this really looks a little "too close for comfort" for mine. Stealing is stealing.

Well, I was lucky enough to get offered a promo code from the dev, so I will leave some impressions later.

I also haven't played Super Mario in forever, so i will be going back over the old Nintendo games to see what's different and what's the same before I start making accusations.

Also, the dev did say this was paying homage to the NES days.

The price tag: I can only assume is the reflection of the devs work, but in this market, I just don't know...
