This does look great. Have a look around 0:25 on the video - it shows the controls can be moved around.

Also - I can't see any sign of IAPs.

yup, no IAPs, and the game is FAN-FREAK'N-TAS-TIC!!!


I was lucky enough to help beta test this one, and fell IN LOVE with it while exploring every nook and cranny of the game.

It is a speedrun platformer, but it's more casual, with less strict time limits. You can also explore each level for a hidden pair of shorts, as well as get all the coins in a stage to get the coin medal for each stage. There's loads of content, and even more items in the shop to customize the look of Mikey.

Really, I haven't loved a platformer like this since Mos Speedrun. =oD

Here's a question for you: Would you be so kind as to just release the game this very second so I don't have to go insane for the next 15 hours?

Haha, just kidding. Congrats on the release guys...can't wait to finally get this.

Not a fan of "speed run" type of platformers at all, but no IAP and movable controls pretty much make this a purchase by default.
