Bought escapeVektor and Gunman Clive. They are both fantastic.

Little Inferno was a little overpriced at £12.99, but at the reduced price, I can thoroughly recommend it.
Game Over, Yeah!!

The only thing putting me off Gunman Clive is that the jumping looks really floaty. I prefer my platformers to have more weight. It's a shame since the art-style is rather nice and it's at a good price.

The jumping isn't any more floaty than, say, Mega Man.

Agreed, Gunman Clive is a great game for the price.

Little Inferno is currently £7.99 on Steam as their sales are now on, and could get even cheaper if it becomes a spotlight item.

Gunman Clive is in fact £1.99, Cake Ninja Xmas is in fact £1.79, Doctor Mario is in fact £1.39. Not your fault, Nintendo sent out a bum press release.

Yes I know, but for the people who are it's useful information.

Pretty sure it'll run on my computer, so I'll probably pick it up in the Steam sales some time after Christmas.

Get Little Inferno! I've just got it and it's worth every penny! Hopefully they'll introduce free DLC (downloadable catalogs) in the future too to increase playability!
I've also got Trine 2, which is also currently on sale. Best graphics I've seen on WiiU so far!
