Its really nice! Looks more fun than oldshool Mario Bros, meaning this is a good game! It will be cool it was available for PSP, beause its like the Mario game, but for PSP with the enhancement of God of War. Imagine playing this unique mode of platform God of War on the go. Congrats! If you possibly can port it to the PSP, I will really appreciate it, as well as many other PSP users. Well, now let download this game and start playing!
