Great! Bought on iPad, wasn't able to stick with touch controls. Vita becomes more useful by the day.

Doesn't looks all that great (and seems to lose a lot of its appeal once you remove 3D), but I guess we've already had worse smartphone ports in the last few months.

It's a fun game from what I've played so far on the 3DS version (first four levels). Not buying it again, though.

It's a great game but it looks really weird when you're not playing it in 3D. I wouldn't touch it anywhere outside of the 3DS.

What do you mean? What makes it weird? (Genuine question)
Well because of the multiple layers, it can get a little confusing with the 3D off. However, I imagine like the PC and Wii U versions, these will implement DOF to solve that problem. 3DS didn't have that in 2D mode.

Just got the Wii U version about a month ago, this is a great game. It provides a solid challenge, but is never cheap because the controls are very tight and precise. The graphics are sharp and clean as well, and the music is good. I highly recommend anybody with a PS3/Vita get this game if you're into platformers. I'll certainly be getting any potential sequel day 1.

I played the demo on 3DS. I thought it was pretty meh to be honest.
This was me months ago, I tried the demo on 3DS and didn't like it but didn't hate it either. I got it on a whim with Digital Deluxe credits and had a great time with the game.

Terribly overrated, in my opinion. It's pretty much an average platformer.
I don't know if I'll call it overrated, because a lot of people genuinely seem to enjoy playing it, but I didn't. Main character controls like a tank.

It has a very cool aesthetic and jumping between the foreground and the background was cool as well, but I didn't get too far. I suck at platformers anyway, but I had a real hard time with this game.

At any rate, the more the merrier. Bring it on.

Based on the demo, the game seemed incredibly basic and only really had the great 3D implementation going for it. I can't see it working on any other platform.

Thought the same thing. It came out in the early days of the eshop and its quality ended up being vastly overstated as a result. I mean don't get me wrong it's not a bad game or anything, but it doesn't really do anything interesting or bring anything new to the table, and everything it does has been done better somewhere else.

Man, since when are people suddenly negative toward this game? I usually see almost nothing but positivity around it.
I think some people just don't like how slow it is. That's the main complaint I see levied against it, anyway. It's also a pretty simple game.

But the mechanics are tight, the level design is solid and fun, the graphics and music are excellent, it's challenging but fair, and it has a neat layer-switching gimmick. Overall, great game, IMO at least.

It's certainly missing... something, but I had fun with it on 3DS. Big fan of the soundtrack. Not sure I'd want to play it without the 3D though, maybe the only game I think I'd ever say that about. The strong sense of depth was a large chunk of the appeal for me.

Oh wow, had no idea that this port was in the works. Is this going to feature the extra levels and content of the Wii U version?

I heard about this a while back and that's why I didn't pick it up on eShop. I want it on my sexy vita and maybe get some crossbuy.

The Virtual Boy throwback levels won't have the same effect without 3D, but good addition, nonetheless.
