I played the PC version for a bit, and it seemed surprisingly good, although I hear it's not that long.
At any rate it's much more than an old Mario ripoff, so if the price is right, I think it's a pretty good choice.

Fun fact:
The original was a Mario ripoff (Nintendo took the case to court and won) so it was never really released.
But everyone got to play it anyways on the C64 or Amiga.
Wonder how... ;)

Yeah, that's why I was saying that this one is more than a simple Mario ripoff.
In this one, you switch between 2 different versions of the world: the visuals, music orchestrations and elements of level design change from fairytale to gothic.
The concept has been done before, but it's done here with surprising care for an indie game.
The art is pretty charming and very different from Mario.
I dont play many pure platformers but I thought this one was a nice little surprise, and the levels were never boring.
