Best quote about this game,

"If Mario and Luigi went to Oxford instead of plumbing school, you'll get Henry Hatsworth"

I can't wait to pick this up.

I have been playing the game most of the day so far and will vouch it is living up to the hype. I almost never post at a topic specific to one game but this is seriously the most fun I have had with a game since Professor layton. I love the voice "acting" in this, especially monkay boi!

Edit - Its also amazing how much the soundtrack kicks ass. This is one of the first games in awhile that I have not only not had the urge to turn the volumn off and watch TV/listen to a podcast while playing but also put my headphones on and just enjoy the soundtrack.

Strange, I can't imagine enjoying a game while listening to TV or a podcast instead of the game music and sound.

I played this game for about 2 hours last night, and only stopped because it was 4am and I needed to sleep! Crazy good fun, a great sense of humor, and thoroughly addictive. I loves me some Henry Hatsworth.

This game just keeps getting better. Apparently there are hidden exits in some level that lead to secret levels. The secret levels are supposed to be way harder but have big rewards including upgrades to your suit(one guy said the one he got made it so treasure was worth more when picked up).

I've been playing this for the past two hours and am loving it.

The only negative is that it manages to one-up JRPGs for the most annoying text sounds, as you hear "harrumphs" and other similar sounds for each word that comes up, which is more annoying than just beeps. A simple harrumph at the end or beginning of each sentence would've been fine.

I freaking love the voice acting! I think im probally about 60% through the game at this point and have to say I am still very impressed, and am pleased to see that eve if the game isnt hard its harder then many are these days later in the game.

I've only played it for the first 30 mins or so, and it seems to be a pretty fun game in a odd way. I always loved tetris attack, but I hope it doesn't hinder the gameplay if you are increasingly good at tetris attack.

I'll add to the Chorus of Joy here - the platforming elements are very simple, yet solid and fun, with good music and visuals, and the puzzle is basically Tetris Attack / Puzzle de Pon with special tiles that activate things like lightning, health, and temporary speed increases once you return to the top world; there are also tiles that increase the time you can spend in the puzzle world; puzzle combos also increase the amount of energy that fills your special meter, which, when full, allows you to transform into a GIANT FREAKING ROBOT.

It's the kind of game you hope succeeds, because it's so gleefully anti-hip that you can't help but love it. GOOD SHOW!

When you're puzzling, you crave to return to the platformer; when you're platforming, you want to puzzle some more.

If I understood the GT review correctly, you don't have to be dependent on the puzzle element. You can make the game as easy or as hard as you like by how much you depend on the puzzles.

God damn the boss of the Atlantica area is difficult. Think this is the first time in years I have burned through more then 1 or 2 free men fighting a boss.

It really is a great game.

The platformer part is not as easy as I anticipated. The frequent switch to puzzle mode keeps your brain active. This game is great for those that need help in multi-tasking.

For anyone on the fence, this game is WELL WORTH its $30 pricetag. (I also have been having fun with GTA Chinatown Wars, also well worth the price.)

Actually, the platform to puzzle part is a lot more seamless than I expected it to be.

The first time I saw the gameplay vids, I thought to myself, "what the-?", but in practice, you just do what you need to do. I agree that it's a nice brain candy to chew on, and a good companion to a game like Prof. Layton, which requires a different kind of thinking.

I feel the change between the two is easier than I'd expected (a good thing). I think it's because the puzzle element is relatively simple and reminds me a lot of Tetris Attack (Fuck you, bejeweled).

The "to do list" on the Multiplayer Blog led me to believe that there's 2 secret areas in each of the first few levels.
