Is Balan Wonderworld this generation's Knack?

A not very good platformer that arrived at the start of the generation, I can see Balan Wonderworld becoming a game that people look back on ironically and laugh about in the same way they did/do about Knack. Discuss.

Knack 1 is bad but i don't know if worse than Balan (i refuse to play it).

On the other hand Knack2 is a very good couch coop game, one of the best when playing with kids.

Na Knack was a meh game but ok for those wanting something to mess about with at launch.

Balan was pure shit.

What the fuck am I reading? Knack was flawed for sure but it still is an order of magnitude better than Balan in basically every way.

Balan is the absolute worst.

Knack had a level of quality that made it feel like a product that came out of a AAA publisher....

Balan on the other hand feels and looks like some one man dev team patron game using store bought assets.
