When my friend told me about this game, I was a bit confused as to why a 2D platformer was not a downloadable XBLA title. But he was raving about the game so much that I just HAD to pick up a copy.Needless to say, I am EXTREMELY impressed with this game. I could go on forever about it, but I won't. Instead, I will just break it down into a few components:Gameplay: 5/5Smooth controls, some of the best platforming I've seen in a while. Truly great level design.Multiplayer: 4.9/5..
