I somewhat like this game, but because of the large amount of positive feedback compared to how many problems I've found in the game, I'm marking this review not-recommended. It's not that I wouldn't recommend it, it's just that this game might disappoint you.
Because of its art style, I thought that it would match it with its gameplay's genre, such as it being a 2-D puzzle platformer. And it is, but... It's also a rage game. A die-and-restart-until-you-win-in-one-run-er, with some vertical if-you-fall-you-have-to-go-back-all-the-way-up-again levels, on top of having a ton of random-obstacles-or-projectiles-which-can-only-be-dodged-after-you-die-finding-their-functions filled sections. It's not that it's bad (well, though I'd like to say that, it left me with a stale frown during the second boss fight), it's just that it doesn't match up at all with its story's theme or art style.
Oh yeah, those two parts are pretty good. You play as a highly flammable kleptomaniac who is being chased by Santa Claus and his gang of Russians through a tower filled with aliens and robots, with abilities Magneto would probably be used to make a pun with if I knew more about DC Comics or whatever. The story's alright, and its world is pretty logically put together, but it doesn't have anything too great to marvel at. Marvel. Wait a second...
Anyway, to put its presentation quick, the art style met my expectations, but the soundtrack isn't that memorable. And finally, as I said before, even though I've marked this review as not recommended, it still has its good points gameplay-wise. The mechanic to manipulate magnetic energy is really unique, and can confuse you as you forget whether blue+blue=attract or blue+red=attract, or maybe I'm just an idiot. And even though it mostly has elements from the rage-game genre, it's also a puzzle-platformer which has metroid-like elements in its level design, making it a pretty unique experience. It isn't entirely a puzzle game as its art style implied, but it's still good. That is, if you can tolerate being kicked to the beginning every time you mess up.
