Finally, a cool WiiWare game. Even though I would've liked a full retail game for this franchise.... better than nothing I guess. Nintendo needs to do this with more of their popular franchises, like making a 2.5D Mario as a WiiWare game, instead of all these brain training games and ping pong shit.

This is not a game by Nintendo. (2.5D mario would be sweet though)

  2.5D platformers have been made with Mario, Wario, Kirby, Donkey Kong and Yoshi.

That looks really really really really cool.

If you're interested in Icarus type stuff you should listen to the Thrice song: Daedalus

Go there, click the second album cover in the player, and it's the fourth track, really great song.

I think he just likes to say the word "what."  It's not a question, no question mark (?).
I'll have to check out the site and see what I think of this game.  Thanks for the tip.
