    No thread for this? Really tidy platformer, definitely worth trialling.

    Managed an A++ on everything on the first world, world 2 is a LOT stricter with the time limits from what I can tell though.

    Surprised there's been no interest for this here given how well Castle Crashers was received.

    I'm playing it, and rather good it is too!

    I gave up on beating the time limits after chapter 2, replaying the levels again and again isn't much fun and since there's no achievement for getting A++ in every level it looks like they don't expect even the hardcore to do it...

    I quite enjoy going for the A++ stuff. Done world 2 now, apart from the 3 TT stages that I haven't tried. Some of the gems are hidden in annoying ways though, there's one on the second part of finale 2 that is just behind a completely random block :/

    Have they said it will be coming to other platforms like Castle Crashers did ? Althourgh took a while.

    Well looks like the competitive multiplayer achievements are impossible to get on account of the fact no cunt is playing this.

    Gosh. This is really an odd game. My lad has been playing it today, and he is loving it.

    Just the audio alone is quite something. From the next room it sounds like a Skrillex vs The Teletubbies mash-up narrated by the American guy off the Mighty Boosh. Totally nuts.

    Can't help feeling it will be missed amongst all the new releases that are appearing each week on XBLA, which is a shame, seen as Behmoth have spent 4 years building something this bonkers - they should really get something on the dash to let people know it is the new game from 'the Castle Crashers people'. I nearly missed it...

    Crazy that Castle Crashers is still so very popular and this is not at all.

    Fickle/ignorant gamers.

    It's had no promotion as far as I can tell. It seems if it's not a major boxed release, music or a movie then MS don't want it up front on the dashboard.

    It was on the dashboard, as was God Mode etc: there's quite frequently Arcade stuff listed on the first page of the Home and Games tabs.

    MS are shit at promotion, yes, but a lot of gamers have about as much curiosity as a dead cat and expect everything to be shoveled into their faces.

    I love the music. It's weird, but upbeat enough to be cheery.

    Currently working on finishing the encore levels now. There's some evil genius level design going on in there.
