I don't even care how blatantly this game is drawing from Donkey Kong Country and Crash Bandicoot; I'm ALWAYS down for anything inspired by DKC and Crash.

Looks very solid, music sounds very different to usual Wise but definitly interested, if you can jump out of the dash and keep momentum that is (so you can feel like you speed through the levels, its all about the gamefeel).
