Well, I love The Incident, and I really like League of Evil as well, so I will probably pick this up. I tried the flash game and I do love the style, but is it always the same endless mode with the same background and the same music, kinds of blocks, etc.? Or is there more variety to the gameplay and environments?

I do see that there are "4 unique characters to unlock," but do they have different abilities or is it all cosmetic? Looks like "the agent" can do his flying kicks and punches, so maybe there will be some variety there.

I'll be buying this as soon as it hits the uk, I looked at this on the store a few weeks ago and now I'm glad I didn't buy it since that was just somebody ripping it off. I love league of evil to and can't wait for the update with the cross over levels.

In the trailer, it showed the characters with different stats, like the LoE hero is agile but weak, and the jumper is strong but slow.

I was hoping for universal, but these types of games usually look decent in 2x mode.

They should make this universal and I would certainly get it for my iPad. Same goes with League of Evil. No idea why they're not universal. They pretty much look and play similar to Monster Dash, which is universal, and plays and looks great on my iPad. I love these pick-up-and-play high scoring games.. but please please make them universal.

Just got a response from the developer from the main article that they'll be making it universal in a future update. Well I hope it comes sooner than later. I really wanna play this game!
